Synappx Go for Collaboration

Configuration Steps

Cast Your Laptop Setup and Configuration

Configure display devices in each workspace for casting. If a workspace has multiple displays or display devices, automatic input switch is an additional configuration option.

Note: MirrorOp for Sharp Client Sender Application

Synappx Go no longer supports the MirrorOp for Sharp client sender application. Switch the casting/mirroring environment from MirrorOp for Sharp to Barco's MirrorOp. Barco's MirrorOp is downloadable at no cost to Synappx users. Download MirrorOp from Barco here.

Register Devices

Once a workspace is licensed, register devices for auto-casting. Up to four casting and display devices can be configured per workspace.

Select a workspace on the Workspaces page. The workspace configuration page will appear. [View Image]

The workspace configuration page contains the following sub-sections:

Casting/Mirroring: Select Configure to set up casting/mirroring receiver information (e.g., IP address, receiver PC name). This enables automatic casting when a user starts a meeting in the workspace. Up to four casting receivers can be added. The input connection for the receiver is also defined here for automatic input switch. Select + to add more devices.

Audio: Select Configure to set up Bluetooth audio device information (e.g., unique device address, device name). This enables an automatic connection to a Bluetooth audio device when a user starts a meeting in the workspace.
