WiFi Show: Quick guide

Kramer VIA offers wireless presentation and teamwork tools for teaching rooms, meeting rooms and group rooms. Kramer VIA enables participants to present wirelessly on any laptop or mobile device, share files, display full HD video, and documents on the main screen. The system supports up to four simultaneous shows. With VIA's whiteboard, participants can annotate and draw ideas on the presentation from their own device.

The Kramer VIA system is used with the VIA application that is distributed to Aalto Windows and Mac laptops. The application can also be installed on iOS and Android devices from appropriate app stores. The system works on aalto or aalto open WiFi networks and the presentation device should be connected to either of these networks.

The wireless presentation system is in use in the Väre building's teaching and conference facilities.  For other buildings and premises, the system will be installed in conjunction with other AV renewal or by request.
