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, see [KB8045].

    Note that by connecting to the ClickShare Wi-Fi, you will lose your internet connection or will switch to a 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.

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.
