Annotate.net Adds Support for Google Cast Screen Mirroring
Enables wireless desktop mirroring from Chromebooks, PCs and Macs in addition to iOS and Android screen mirroring.
Attleboro, MA, Oct 20, 2014 - Simpliphi, Inc. today announced the addition of Google Cast screen mirroring to the list of supported features in the Annotate Mirror Client. With this update, Annotate.net becomes the first and only software to support native screen mirroring from iOS, Android, Chromebooks, PCs, and Macs wirelessly through software, without requiring cables or any extra hardware whatsoever.
After the launch of Annotate.net last month with inbuilt support for screen mirroring from iOS and Android devices, several teachers requested support for screen mirroring from Chromebooks, to enable students to present and share their work. The latest version of Annotate Mirror Client, released earlier today, allows students to present from their seats by simply mirroring their Chromebook's screen to their teacher's computer and onwards to a classroom display.
With the increased adoption of Chromebooks and Android tablets in schools and colleges, Annotate.net will allow schools and districts that have invested in Chromebooks to leverage their existing investment in classroom technology by getting access to premium features that were previously exclusive to iOS based solutions only.
Annotate.net gives extreme flexibility to school districts where the technology roadmap for 1:1 implementation is still evolving. Districts that originally started off with iPad implementations, but migrated to Chromebooks can protect their investment with a solution that is guaranteed to run seamlessly across multiple platforms. Annotate.net works equally well in iOS installations or Android + Chromebook installations, or alternately in BYOD classrooms comprising a mixture of devices.
Annotate.net is a comprehensive cloud based software for improving teacher mobility and student engagement in the classroom. It integrates a mobile interactive whiteboard, screen mirroring, real time student response systems, remote desktop control, and student collaboration tools in a single lightweight solution.
Annotate is free to sign-up. Teachers at schools or colleges can sign up for an educational license with extra features. Premium features are on promotion with a 50% discount.
