Some rooms have been equipped with Solstice Pods to help facilitate presenting from a laptop or mobile device. Up to 4 devices can be connected to the Solstice at once for simultaneous sharing.
The main screen for each Solstice Pod allows you to connect via either of two ways:
Use your device’s web browser at the specified IP address. (This is basically a shortcut to the apps.)
After you disconnect, the app will remember previous connections in a list to make it easier to connect in the future. Just select it and enter the new key the next time you connect.
Want to view the session remotely? The meeting organizer should share the web address (ex. 152.228.xx.xxx) with the viewer. Then the viewer should launch the Solstice app, and select Meeting -> Remote View.
Multi-room functionality is not enabled right now.
Moderated = no one can join the session unless you approve it.
Password-protected = the organizer provides the password to only those they want to join the session.

- Certain apps may not work due to DRM & HDCP protections (such as Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Video, HBONow, Hulu, etc.). This is a copyright protection issue beyond IT’s control.
- Mac desktop computers and Android mobile devices are currently not able to share audio with the display screen. IT staff have submitted this issue to Solstice and are waiting for a fix.
