Using Mersive Solstice for Wireless Display

In this article:

Introduction

Mersive's Solstice Pod is a wireless display device, allowing easy and intuitive collaboration in classroom and meeting spaces using any laptops, tablets or phone. Downloading the client to your device allows you to share and collaborate to any Pod installed on Xavier's campus.

Downloading the Solstice Client

The Solstice client is available for Mac, Windows, and mobile devices. To get the installer:

  • PC/Mac - Open a web browser and go to the URL listed in the upper-right corner of the Solstice Pod's welcome screen. The page that loads will include  a download link for the Solstice client.
  • Mobile devices - Open a web browser on your device and go to the URL listed in the upper-right corner of the Solstice Pod's welcome screen; you will be redirected to the appropriate mobile store to install the Solstice app.

Connecting to Solstice using a laptop

  1. Run the Solstice client. On first launch, you will be prompted to enter your name. This helps distinguish your content when collaborating with others.
  2. The client will automatically detect available Solstice Pods in your area. Click on the Solstice Pod you want to connect to. (You can also search the list for a specific Pod by typing a building name or room into the  field.)
  3. Enter the 4-digit access code listed on the Solstice Pod's welcome screen.
  4. Pick a sharing method. You can share your entire desktop, an open application window, or stream a media file directly from your hard drive.
Mac users will be prompted to install an audio driver the first time audio is toggled "on" within the Solstice client. Once the installation is complete, we recommend rebooting your Mac.
