Wireless Presentation Technology Available in TC Classrooms

posted Sep 8, 2014, 2:23 PM by Mark Pelham   [ updated Sep 8, 2014, 2:25 PM ]

Imagine walking into a class or conference room at TC and—via the TC WiFi—you wirelessly connect your laptop, iPad, or smart phone to the room’s display systems, without the need of any physical hard cable connection. Now you may ask, is this even possible?

Well, in our ever changing world of technology there now exists a new piece of hardware called a Wireless Presentation Gateway (WPG), which Media Services is installing in several rooms around TC.  This device allows multiple users to connect wirelessly to the room’s displays.

Presently 11 TC classrooms and several labs have Wireless Presentation Gateways (WPG) installed and Media Services envisions adding many more as the 2014 Fall semester progresses.

Current WPG enabled classrooms & labs at TC:
*140HM  *70GD     *406ZB   *51TR   *234HM
*345MY  *150HM   *179GD  *408ZB  *152HM
*279GD   *438HM  *431HM  *535GD

If interested, please view our video on how to connect and use a Wireless Presentation Gateway (WPG):
