  • The Wireless Projection Guide- What Are the Options And How Does It Work?

    Fed up of cables? Need more information about wireless projection? We'll explain the different wireless options along with the best and easiest way to connect your smart device at 100" seamlessly.

    Whether it's for home use, travel, business, education, gaming, entertainment or art, projecting your smart device wirelessly can make life a whole lot easier, see our full range of wireless projectors here.

    How does Full Wireless Mirroring work with a projector?

    This term is fairly self-explanatory and means your smart device (iPhone/Android Phone/Tablet etc) display can be fully mirrored through the projector wirelessly. Whatever is displayed through your device will be identical through the projector so what you see on one screen is what you get on the other screen.

    Apple call this AirPlay and Android call it Screen Mirroring / Quick Connect (amongst other terms). Some projectors have this function built in like the Pico Genie and Qumi ranges. Other projectors don't have this functionality, however a variety of dongles can be purchased to enable this feature.

    How does wireless mirroring work with a projector using an App?

    On either Android or iPhone you can download free Apps like Mira Cast and connect your smart device to the projector directly. Note: You will need to have the projector and your mobile device connected to the same Wi-Fi network in order for this to work.

    With your mobile device screen mirrored to your projector you can pretty much access everything from email, videos, the web, PowerPoint, music and much more. A great way to play your favourite mobile games full screen or for easy scrolling of your social medias.

    What are the alternatives if my projector doesn't have built-in wireless?

    If your projector doesn't have wirelessly functionality built in, don't worry. You still have options to share your smart device wirelessly. There are a wide variety of methods of mirroring whether its using a cable or a wireless HDMI type dongle or system like Apple TV or Chromecast.

    Cables - The simplest and easiest way will be using a cable. For Android users this may include an MHL adaptor which must be purchased for the exact model of your handset so its advisable to purchase it from the manufacturer directly. For Apple users there are a variety of HDMI and VGA adaptors that connect HDMI or VGA cables directly to a iPhone or an iPad. There are lots of copies on the market for this type of cable so beware of cheap imitations. See Apple’s website for more details.

    Wireless dongles can be connected via USB or HDMI ports. This will allow your smart device to connect straight to the projector wirelessly. Using a wireless dongle is a great way for you to add wireless mirroring features to your current projector.

    Not all of the available dongles will work in the dame way. Some will come with both a transmitter and receiver and will need to be set up accordingly while others will need to connect to your Wi-Fi and transmit via your internet connection. Before purchasing a dongle it is best to check what devices you want to use it with, you can see our full range of wireless dongles here.

  • PIQS TT Projector Review

    The PIQS TT Wifi Projector has just arrived. This portable DLP LED HD projector has futuristic capabilities unavailable on any other projector but it still remains incredibly easy to use in the office or around the home.

    User Friendly

    This LED projector has one of the nicest interfaces we have seen on a projector which make it really easy to use right out of the box.  Additionally, there is no fiddling with the focus or the angle of projection as the PIQS TT has both Auto Focus and Auto Keystone which can be very useful if delivering a business presentation or watching a movie in a new location.

    The Butterfly TT PIQS projector also has a very unique laser remote control that's not available on any other projector and makes it quite unique. The laser remote control allows for an intuitive and familiar interface to scroll, swipe, and draw, making it a great interactive pointer / drawing tool for presentations of all kinds.

    Weighing in at only 570g the projector is extremely portable and with a 3 hour eco mode battery life you can take your versatile viewing experience anywhere, from the boardroom to the living room.

    Built in Apps / Streaming

    The Android OS on board means downloading apps is familiar and easy. The PIQS TT even has an in-built PIQS Draw app that uses the remote's features to provide a free user-friendly business presentation tool.

    Downloading streaming apps like Netflix or You Tube is just as simple, making this LED pico projector a versatile choice for all of your TV on the go. The tiny projector supports HD and will deliver 400 ANSI lumens of brightness (2400 marketing lumens) to watch all your favourite shows or present in excellent clarity.

    Watching movies or presenting on the move is also made simple with wireless mirroring supported for both Android and Apple devices.

    Augmented Reality: A mini projector 1st

    With the built-in AR app the PIQS TT uses projection mapping software to scan your hand and project all kinds of designs onto your skin. This could be great fun for tattooists, artists or any budding designers, not to mention something to wow the kids with!

    Overall, the PIQS TT wifi projector has many of the features you could want on a projector at a great price plus a few unique features not available on any other model such as Auto Focus, Auto Keystone, laser mouse remote control and augmented reality. Whilst the PIQS TT projector may not have short throw or a super powerful battery it does tick most of the other feature boxes such as a battery, good connectivity and an easy to use interface with apps you can download much the same as you would on your mobile. All in all a great little projector for business or leisure.
