BIMx Docs

Anonymous

Does anyone know if BIMx Docs on an iPad cab display to an Apple TV using AirDisplay ?

It would look extra hi-tech, but we haven't succeeded yet and have resorted to a an hdmi cable and adaptor which don't have the right image.

We use an Apple TV for all our presentations, though we typically mirror from our workstations using airplay.

Yes, you can use iPad Airplay mirroring to show BIMx on an apple tv. Unfortunately, GS hasn't implemented native support for AirPlay so you end up with the standard letterboxed view you get when mirroring (bars on left and right) because the iPad proportions aren't 16x9 like your tv.

It'd be great if GS added native airplay support so we could fill the entire display. Is anyone from Graphisoft listening? It's a fairly common feature with games and something that would make a strong selling point to us your customers: https://developer.apple.com/airplay/

It's nice to be able to carry a model on your phone to a meeting and throw it up on a clients giant tv.

p.s. this is how you turn on airplay mirroring on your device.

Can you confirm you don't need to be on the same WiFi network to mirror BIMx to Apple TV? My office is looking at purchasing an Apple TV to take out of the office when presenting to clients and others. We want to just be able to plug in the Apple TV to the screen and present BIMX and PDF documents without asking someone for login details of their wifi network.

Haven't tried it, but if your iPad (or an iPhone / MacBook) can set-up a personal hotspot, then you can pre-configure all settings for a 'seamless' client experience in their office without needing to use their wifi network....you have created your own wifi network.

If you try this, please let us know if it works !
