Installing Crestron AirMedia for wireless projection (Windows, Faculty and Staff)

How faculty and staff install the application for connecting to Creston AirMedia

AirMedia is a wireless projection system that utilizes wireless internet to allow instructors and students to project to classroom projectors.

The AirMedia application must be installed in order to use the AirMedia system. Many campus computers will already have AirMedia installed.

  3. In the software center, locate AirMedia. Double click on it.
  4. This screen should pop up. Click on the "Install" button.

  5. On the bottom taskbar, right click on the AirMedia logo and click on "Pin to taskbar". Click on "Close window" to exit the program, and then re-open it for use.

Detailed instructions for projecting using AirMedia:
