If you want to cast your screen wirelessly, people usually use Chromecast and Apple TV to do so. What’s more, their prices are not too expensive. For Chromecast, it costs around USD$50. The price of Apple TV is around $199. After plugging the Chromecast or Apple TV into the display, you can easily play the videos from your Android or iOS devices and watch them on TV. Of course, screen mirroring is not a problem either. But if you want to install the wireless presentation system in the office, it’s better to choose the professional solution instead of Chromecast or Apple TV. We offer a few points below to let you know why we think so.
1. The professional wireless presentation solution focuses on collaboration and efficiency, while Chromecast and Apple TV pay more attention to entertainment
Usually Chromecast and Apple TV are installed in houses. People use Chromecast to watch videos, photos, or play games on TV with their Android devices. People use Apple TV to do the same things too. If you subscribe to streaming platforms such as Apple TV+, Netflix, FOX+, HBO and etc, there are exclusive apps on Apple TV that can be used. We can see that Chromecast and Apple TV are mainly for entertainment, but if you want to use them in the office, you can find they lack the collaboration functions. They cannot flexibly be installed in all kinds of spaces. However, taking the ASTROS wireless presentation solution as an example, we can find it has many collaboration features such as “Split Screen”, “Remote View”, “Moderation mode”, “Annotation” and so on to make team work more efficient.
2.The professional wireless presentation solution can support various devices
When we talk about Chromecast, we will relate to Android devices. When we talk about Apple TV, we will relate to iOS devices. If we want to use iPhone to cast the screen with Chromecast, or if we use Android devices to cast the screen with Apple TV, we usually need to download a third party app to do so. So Chromecast and Apple TV are actually not very friendly for all devices. In the office, we can see colleagues use different devices to work. So it’s better to install a professional wireless presentation system in the meeting room. For example, ASTROS wireless presentation solution allows people to use Windows PC, MacBook, iPhone or Android smartphone to do the presentation in the meeting room. Every employee can smoothly present their project progress and ideas.
3.The cyber security level of the professional wireless presentation solution meets enterprise standards
The professional wireless presentation solution is commonly used in workplaces or classrooms. In business meetings, confidential information and sales numbers are often exchanged. Therefore the professional wireless presentation solution would have a higher cyber security than the home use solution. If the company has a strict security requirement, it’s recommended to purchase the professional solution.
4. The professional wireless presentation solution is easier to manage for IT staff
If you install 20 Chromecast or Apple TV in your office, it will take time to change the machine settings or check the connection all at once for IT staff. Because Chromecast or Apple TV is for home use. But if you use the professional solution such as ASTROS Station, the IT staff can use the online ASTROS Manager to easily check the gateway connection and change settings quickly. It significantly reduces the workload of IT staff.
