How to wirelessly project your device’s screen with the Smart Projector

Scenario 1: In a Wi-Fi environment

With BYOD policies in most schools, teachers are embracing blended learning with students frequently using personal laptops and smart devices to support the curriculum. So a wireless projector that is compatible with Macbooks, Windows laptops, Chromebooks, iPhones, and/or iPads ensures a seamless learning environment.

In this video, you will learn how to...

  • Configure the Wireless Network Setting (Wireless mode)
  • Wirelessly connect an iPhone to the Smart Projector
  • Wirelessly connect an Android phone to the Smart Projector
  • Wirelessly connect a MacBook to the Smart Projector
  • Wirelessly connect a Windows laptop/Chromebook to the Smart Projector

Scenario 2: In a Wi-Fi-less environment

For settings that may feature poor Wi-Fi, teachers and students can also mirror the screen of their devices without Internet access by using Hotspot mode.

  • Turn on Hotspot mode and mirror the screen of your personal device on the projector.

Exerting More Control Over What’s Being Projected

BenQ’s wireless projectors are also designed with authorization features that give teachers greater control over what is being projected. There is also a related feature that allows the user to temporarily disable wireless projections, to prevent unexpected interruptions to a presentation. To use these features, enable any of the following options in the Wireless Presentation menu:

Confirm before mirroring – Once enabled this function will require a confirmation from the moderator anytime a person tries to project their content wirelessly.


Hide notification on the hour – When this function is enabled, the projector will reject any new requests to project wirelessly until the next hour. For example, if this function is enabled at 9:20 AM, all projection requests will be rejected until 10:00 AM.


When the Confirm before mirroring function is enabled, the following notification will appear on the screen anytime a user attempts to project wirelessly, from which the moderator can choose “Allow” or “Ignore”.
