TiffanyScreens in the Mac App Store
I never really liked going to “PowerPoint Meetings”, sharing the screen content with others during a meeting, usually requires to connect a projector to the presenter’s laptop. In a lengthy process, the laptop’s screen resolution and refresh-rate needed to be manually adjusted to synchronize with the projector. What follows is a lecture style presentation, featuring slides being projected, hugely magnified onto one of the meeting room’s walls; often, lights need to be dimmed, and listeners either doze off or start checking email.
A couple years back, I wrote TiffanyScreens, which allows you to share presentations (or any screen content), without requiring a projector.
Imagine a scenario, where every participant brought a laptop computer to a meeting and watched the presentation on that laptop’s display – participants sit on a table facing each other, instead of the wall. No adjustments are necessary; images are scaled automatically on arrival, to best match the receiver’s display-capability. To support lively meetings, everyone participating, can with a single button click, turn his computer into the presenting device.
During the development, I had small engineering groups in mind, but it became more and more obvious that instructors, educators, and educational institutions would appreciate TiffanyScreens the most. Listening to users’ feedback, TiffanyScreens has been iteratively improved, refined, and optimized.Read More
