BeamAir is a photo and productivity app focused turning the iOS device into a mobile projector and remote control for showing pictures, documents and presentation slides from the smartphone to a remote audience or on a bigger screen.
It transmits and projects images and PDF document pages via internet live from the iPhone or iPad on any device with online access. The app user can control what the viewers see by flicking through the images or slides.
A session can be established by just launching the app and browsing the image library, or by opening a PDF with BeamAir in order to show its content.
After the app has been started, an individual link with a code for the current session is generated. The link can instantly be transmitted to the viewers from within the app, for example via Facebook, Twitter, e-mail or SMS. Naturally, the code may also be shared verbally.
A viewer needs an internet connected device that features a web browser – which could include be laptop or desktop computer, a smartphone, a tablet, a television screen or a projector system - and then opens the link or enters the session code at beamair.com.
No account registration or login for BeamAir is necessary, neither for presenting nor for watching. After a session has been closed, viewers no longer have access to the images that were displayed and all data is instantly deleted from the servers, so no traces of the session remain online.
