This month we received news that the greatly anticipated App – PJ Connection from Hitachi had been released. The App, which is a free download on the Apple App Store, allows users to transmit a plethora of files to the majority of Hitachi’s current range of projectors from their iPads – wirelessly!
Supported file formats for wireless transmission to the projector range include:
While the App is free, there is a small cost associated with the wireless USB dongle that needs to be fitted to the data projector to allow the wireless transmission. Alternatively, if the projector is already connected to the network via a LAN cable, and you already have wi-fi connection, the USB dongle will not be required.
But I hear you say “I’ve seen other projectors that already allow me to connect my iPad wirelessly”, and by saying this you would be correct. However, do other projectors allow you to control them by the same App?
After downloading and launching the PJ Connection App, you can go to the ‘control’ page which will display the controls of the projector you are currently connected to. From here you can adjust the volume, switch the inputs, blank the image, freeze the image, mute the audio and even turn the data projector on and off. In addition to this, you can walk into another room, connect to that Hitachi data projector, and display or control it with the touch of a button.
To search for this App in the Apple App Store, simply type ‘Hitachi Projector’ into the search field. A blue icon named ‘Projector Quick Connection’ will appear as an option to install. Simply touch the icon, follow the prompts and install for free.
Happy wireless presentations!
