Smartphones and tablets are perfect for personal use, but the small screens limit your ability to share the videos, photos and presentations on your device with others.
Projectors to the rescue!
Most of our business and home theater models easily double as iPhone and iPad projectors. They're perfect for educators who use iPads in the classroom or business presenters who want to share a PowerPoint stored on an iPhone. Heck, some of our customers just want to watch funny YouTube cat videos on a larger-than-life 150-inch display.
Read on for answers to our most common questions about iPad and iPhone projection.
An iPad or iPhone easily connects to your projector with a $29 VGA adapter, available from the Apple store. Simply plug it into the projector's included VGA cable and you're ready to go. The iPhone or iPad works like any other VGA peripheral. Check out our video on how to connect your iOS device to a projector »
Currently Casio, Epson and Panasonic have free apps that allow you to project wirelessly from your iPad or iPhone over a wireless internet connection. For an up-to-the-second update on which brands have apps, call us at 1-888-248-0675.
Because the projector apps transmit content through the device's wireless connection, you won't be able to connect wirelessly to a projector AND the internet unless your phone or tablet is 3G-enabled.
Most content can be sent from your iPhone or iPad to your projector without a problem. But remember, some apps were designed exclusively for a five-inch screen and may look wonky when stretched to 10 times their original size. Also, cameras, smartphones and tablets have different methods of compressing and storing photos. This process can alter the dimensions of your pictures, causing them to look slightly different on the big screen.
