The IT Department is in the process of piloting a device agnostic wireless display and collaboration platform called the NovoPRO.
This device supports all common platforms (Windows, Mac, iOS, Android, and ChromeOS) and operates in one of two modes.
- The first mode uses NovoPro software on the client, supports up to 64 connections, and can display four devices on the screen at once.
- The second mode supports Airplay and Miracast and is suitable for native screen mirroring of OS X, iOS, Android, or Windows 10 computers. This mode projects only one device at a time.
Some classrooms or meeting rooms may already be equipped with this device. Please see below to get started.

Using the NovoPRO software
The first user device that connects to the NovoPRO becomes the moderator and can project full screen or control the primary display allowing projection of up to four devices total. Note that when connected using the NovoPro software Airplay and Miracast mirroring mode is disabled.
Using the NovoPRO in Airplay/Miracast Mode
- OS X and iOS clients support native screen mirroring using Airplay. On OS X select the Airplay icon in the menu bar and choose the device to present to. On iOS, swipe up from the bottom and select the device to present to.
- Android and Windows 10 devices with appropriate hardware support Miracast. On Windows 10 press the Windows Key + P, the choose to present to a wireless display. On Android, consult your device's user manual to check if Miracast is supported. Some vendors may call their wireless projection system something other than Miracast, yet the standard may still be supported.
