Windows 7: Connecting Dell Laptop to TV With Desktop Connected Wirelessly

Connecting Dell Laptop to TV With Desktop Connected Wirelessly

Hey guys!

I hope I'm posting this in the right sub, but here goes nothing.

We have Airplay setup on the desktops which are connected to the TVs, so clients can come into our conference rooms, and connect their iPads, iPhones or whatever to the TVs in the conference rooms. This works great, but we need an alternative for Dell laptops to have the same capabilities. We have a VGA cable currently, so they can just plug it right in to the laptop and it works fine. Unfortunately for some people, this is not enough, and they would like it to work wirelessly, without any cables. I agree this sounds great, but I haven't found anything that will work without a dongle or something, unlike with Airplay. I'm looking for suggestions, so if anybody has any, please let me know. Thank you in advance.

We may actually go with that. We have airserver installed in the conference rooms so we won't even need reflector. Tested it and it looks good, not too pricey, that might work. Noticed it only works if both machines are on the same domain though, but other than that it looks good. I'm still open to more suggestions, if anybody has any.

Thanks mohavepc

You may find that with Windows machines if your using Domains then that is the most likely outcome. I have only tried Air-Parrot as it fit the bill. I use chromecast at home but that's dongle based.

I guess those seem to be the top 2 options at the moment, if we're going Dongle based, it'll be Chromecast, and software based will be AirParrot, thanks for the help, much appreciated.
