AirPlay Mirroring into TriCaster
Feeding the display of an iPad into a TriCaster is becoming a common request. AirPlay Mirroring allows you to send the iPad display wirelessly to a receiving device like AppleTV. While AppleTV is an acceptable way to perform this task, it does use a TriCaster video input and also requires the use of a HDMI to SDI/Analog converter. The document below will explain another solution using software running on another PC to receive the AirPlay Mirroring content and send it into a TriCaster's NET input. While this paper discusses AirPlay Mirroring in depth, there is some information that can help with non-Apple devices as well.
This workflow is compatible with TriCaster Standard Edition & Advanced Edition (v1 or v2) systems. AirPlay functionally has also been added into NewTek Connect Pro.
