We suggest you download the Space to an iPad beforehand to avoid difficulties connecting to WiFi in the middle of your presentation.
Next steps depend on the technology you are using:
- I have an iPad and want to use the 3D Showcase iOS app
- I have an iPad and an Apple TV box
- I don’t have an iPad but I want to show a Matterport Space from my computer
I have an iPad and want to use the 3D Showcase for iOS app
Download the 3D Showcase for iOS app to your iPad.
In the app, login to your Matterport Cloud account.
Download the Spaces you want to share. Open and explore to make sure it looks good.
Get a Lightning to HDMI adapter.
During your presentation when it's time to show the Matterport Space, disconnect the HDMI cable from your computer and connect it to the adapter and then connect the adapter to your iPad. This will mirror what's on the iPad to your TV.
I have an iPad and an Apple TV box
If the TV has an AppleTV box connected to it, you can also use AirPlay to mirror your iPad’s screen.
First turn on the TV and switch to the HDMI input with AppleTV.
On your iPad, open the 3D Showcase for iOS app. From the bottom of the screen, swipe up to open the Control Center.
Tap Air Play and then the name of the Apple TV box connected to the big screen.
I don’t have an iPad but I want to show a Matterport Space from my computer
Open the Matterport Spaces beforehand on a browser in your computer when you have a good internet connection. This can avoid loading time and an unstable internet.
This solution relies on your browser's cache and on your computer's available memory, so it is not recommended for most use.
Switch to your presentation software and give your presentation as normal.
When it’s time to show the Matterport Space, exit your presentation and switch to the browser tab with the Matterport Space.
Switch to fullscreen for the maximum “wow” factor.
