This KB article describes how you can share from your iOS (iPhone or iPad) devices to ClickShare using Airplay.

How to use Airplay on ClickShare?

Depending on the way the ClickShare Base Unit is installed in your company, different actions will be required to be able to share via Airplay to the ClickShare Base Unit. We strongly recommend that you connect the Base Unit to the network and that you always keep your units up to date.

In the following sections, we will describe how to use Airplay on iOS in two different scenarios, one where the Base Unit is not connected to the network (or when the network is not configured to route Airplay traffic) and one where the Base Unit is connected to the network and where an iOS device can reach the Base Unit through the network.

If you are looking to find information on how to use Airplay on macOS, please refer to [KB6410]

How to use Airplay on ClickShare when the Base Unit is on the network?

  2. Select your ClickShare Base Unit.

    Note

    If the desired Base Unit does not appear in the list, please refer to the ClickShare Network Deployment guide for all information and troubleshooting. The ClickShare Network Deployment white paper can be found in the Downloads section of this article. To share your screen, please refer to the next section in this KB.

  3. Your screen will now be mirrored to your ClickShare, potentially after having entered the pincode shown on screen.

On iOS devices, you can mirror your screen to your ClickShare app by following these steps:

  1. Connect to the Base Unit's Wi-Fi (default is ClickShare-xxx or the meeting room name).



    Connect to ClickShare Wi-Fi:
        - Go to settings, select Wi-Fi 
        - Choose “ClickShare-xxx” or the meeting room name 
        - Enter the password (default is clickshare)

    For more detailed information on how to connect to the ClickShare's Wi-Fi, please refer to [KB8045].

    Note that by connecting to the ClickShare Wi-Fi, you will lose your internet connection or will switch to 3/4/5G connection if your device supports it. As indicated in the ClickShare Security White paper and for your and your enterprise's security, ClickShare Base Units do not bridge networks to enable connectivity to devices connected to its Access Point.

  2. Swipe up from the bottom of the screen to open Control Center and click the Screen Mirroring button.

  3. Select your ClickShare Base Unit.



  4. Your screen will now be mirrored to your ClickShare, potentially after having entered the pincode shown on screen.
Note

You can also share from within a specific app like for example Photos. For this, find and click this icon at the bottom of the application.



In the next window, click AirPlay and select your ClickShare Base Unit.
