    Tablets and TVs

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to pick someone's brains about Tablets and TVs...

    The headteacher wants a TV mounted on the wall in her office, so when they have SLT meetings they can all bring their iPads / Windows 8 tablets and connected them to the TV

    What's the best way to do this as I'm 100% positive it's not just for one type of tablet...




    Thanks in advance

    Get a tv with all types of connections!

    stick relevant wires in and just connected when needed. This is probably your cheapest option.


    You could go wireless so Apple tv, Google chromecast (for Android tablets). Not sure if Microsoft has a wireless option.

    Wireless is the only option.

    I did think of apple TV, I've been suggested something called WEpresent - WePresent 1000 | Wireless Interactive Presentation Gateway

    Windows tablets should have Intel WiDi (read: wireless display) available, depending on the CPU. You can get a WiDi receiver for around £50 to leave plugged in. We had a Belkin one when we were testing a tablet, worked well enough.
