I am new to this forum and was reaching out to get some suggestions / solutions on sending mobile content to displays. Our administration would like to have the ability to show content  from their phone/ipad/tablet onto an TV as they enter the lobby of the building while hosting VIP’s and dignitaries. Currently that TV is showing digital signage content. Below is a summary of needs and concerns.


Identify a solution which:


1.       Would be secure.  Open and easy for administration yet restrict students from sending inappropriate images/content onto the screens.  Something that will only accept content from registered devices/etc.  Keep in mind it must still be easy (no long/complex login process, especially with a smart phone, and no complex app to enter and manage).

2.       Would take content (PowerPoint, image, etc.) from administrations ipad/phone/tablet.

3.       Would swap the input in some manner if necessary and then return back to original input.  The units currently shows signage from a player on HDMI 1. 


Thank you,
