Aldo Presenter is a new generation Network Based presentation solution for presenting from a personal computer to a television or a projector. All a user needs to start presenting is a network connection and web browser, the two features universally available across all computers.

Many times, companies use an Apple TV player or Miracast & Google Cast adapters to support screen mirroring from a PC to a TV. These solutions are not universally compatible across a variety of computer models and OS Platforms. They require the presenter to be on the same network and in the same room and viewers of the presentation too must be physically in the same room as the TV. Aldo Presenter eliminates all these constraints.

Aldo Presenter can be used as a presentation display to share a screen, application view or a browser tab. When used with Aldo Meetings, a presenter can run the Whiteboard application that is either in presenter mode or interactive mode, where another user can interact with the whiteboard with a touch display.

Aldo Portal For Enterprise Users
Aldo Presenter is designed to address a broad range of use cases; from starting an instant presentation to an enterprise workflow where scheduling a conference room is supported. Access to the Aldo Admin portal enables company administrators to deploy many displays across the enterprise and remotely setup each display with a custom image and Display Name (Conference Room name) and control user access to the display and to schedule them in Aldo Meetings.
Aldo Presenter works seamlessly with Aldo Meetings. When an Aldo Meeting Host schedules a meeting and invites other participants, the Meeting Host can also invite (book) a Conference Room for that meeting. Aldo Signage software on a TV or a Tablet can be used to display the meeting room schedule.
