The principle of BeamAir is simple: you select photos on your iPhone or iPad using the BeamAir app, while your viewers can watch your slideshow live as you are flicking through those images. It works on any internet connected device having a web browser – including desktops, laptops, tablets, projectors or even Smart TVs.
Beam Air is like the slide projector of the mobile age, that is available anywhere, anytime. It is easy and simple to set up – no configuration, no registration, no login, no network setup, no manual pairing or bumping. All that is neeed to watch your stream is internet connectivity and an auto-generated session code which your viewers enter at http://www.beamair.com.
Of course, many users will love to use BeamAir to share private images taken with their devices with family and friends in real time. But we believe, it is also very useful in a business and educational environment.
Because one pretty cool thing about BeamAir is also, that it is not limited to images, you can also show PDF documents – this in particular useful for presentations in PDF format.
First, you select a PDF on your device – typically from an eMail, or like here, from dropbox and choose open with BeamAir.
In BeamAir, the slideshow is opened and a channel ID is generated.
Now, your viewers just enter the channel ID at http://www.beamair.com or just go to the URL directly – and the presentation can start.
After you end your session, all images and slides are deleted permanently and are not accessible any more, so no traces of your slideshow remain on the internet.
