Projectors for the iPad

As more and more mobile devices are being used in the context of presentations and also at home, this topic is getting increasingly exciting when it comes to projectors. Since the iPad is widely popular, there are more and more questions from users about this. Which projector is the right one for my iPad? Are there any requirements that a projector should meet for iPad users? What do I have to consider?

 

First of all, you should take into consideration how you want to transmit the content from the iPad to the projector. At the moment, there are two different ways to do this. The first one is via wired cable connection; the second way is via Wi-Fi. Please note that a wired connection is able to show the whole display of the iPad, whereas a wireless transmission is usually limited to the app or its content.

When it comes to supplying the input signal via Wi-Fi, for example, Epson projectors which support Wi-Fi are recommended, since this brand offers a very good application with the iProjection App. Therefore, Epson projector offers iPad users a good selection of supported formats that can be presented via the app from an iPad. These projectors are particularly well-suited for the business sector. However, nowadays there are also solutions that are able to transmit video via Wi-Fi. In fact, this is even possible for the iPad. These solutions are MHL adapters, available for example from Acer or BenQ. Required for this are MHL-compatible HDMI ports, which are able to supply the dongle with power.

Thanks to the integrated Miracast support, these dongles are able to transmit Full HD videos from tablets or smartphones that are also Miracast-compatible. Unfortunately, this is not yet the case with the iPad.

However, the apps from BenQ and Acer are capable of buffering video files that are not too large, which then makes it possible to transmit video from the iPad to the projector. This allows you to continue using different projectors for iPad solutions.

In addition to the app solution, there is of course still the option of transmitting the signal to the projector by cable. The choice of projectors for iPad users is actually unlimited here, as there are adapter solutions for VGA ports and HDMI ports. Nevertheless, you should pay attention to which adapter you choose regarding the generation of the iPad. Up to and including the 3rd generation, the 30-pin connector was used, while the 4th generation onward comes with a Lightning connector. Thus, you should rather consider the right choice of the adapter than of the projector. If the right adapter is selected, only an HDMI cable or a VGA cable is needed to connect the iPad to the projector. In this case, the whole screen is mirrored, not just the app surface, as will be the case with wireless solutions. Although mobility is limited within the room, this method can be put to good use.
