Group work with Airmedia

AirMedia is software that wirelessly connects up to four personal devices to a big screen, so that you can each see all of the connected screens at once. You can share group work from different devices, or use the screens to discuss and compare different items at the same time.

AirMedia screens are available in group rooms or booths in the Laidlaw and Edward Boyle Libraries.
