How to screen mirror to many devices — a BYOD conferencing system setup

Imagine everyone is engaged in a conference and there’s only one screen on the right-hand side. The people sitting on the very left-hand side and behind have difficulties seeing the screens. Wouldn’t it be amazing if we can screen mirror from one device to multiple screens? EZCast Pro has heard your voice.

EZCast Pro is the leader of the wireless screen mirroring market. Ranging from video casting to conference projection, EZCast Pro products allow users to communicate and collaborate with their colleagues during the course and a conference. A one-of-a-kind feature is the function of 1-to-multiple screens. The first thing you need to do is to get eligible equipment such as EZCast Pro Dongle II, EZCast Pro Box II, QuattroPod Standard, or QuattroPod Mini (Please make sure that you only use one kind of receivers, either EZCast Pro or QuattroPod series). Depending on the number of screens to be projected, acquire the number of receivers.

Before casting, there are three settings you need to check.

  1. Be sure that all receivers are connected via LAN instead of VLAN.
  2. All the receivers should be connected to the same subnet.
  3. The router must accept the broadcast packet.

Let’s illustrate the how you can use multicast with QuattroPod series.

Step 1-1. Connect to QuattroPod

Please see the upper middle of the landing page for the SSID and password.
