Reflector 2 is the result of years of experience with screen mirroring and sharing. It’s a completely rethought and redesigned application containing a number of game-changing features. With this launch, we’re excited to announce Reflector 2 as the world’s first Google Cast mirroring receiver for Mac and Windows that doesn’t limit device connections or require a subscription .
What’s new in Reflector 2?
We listened to your feedback and built Reflector 2 around your needs. Check out some new features included in the upgrade.
Android Device Support
Mirror Android phones and tablets to Reflector 2 using Google Cast. Everything previously only possible with iPads and iPhones can now be done with Google Cast-enabled Android devices.
Mirror Chromebooks to Reflector using the Google Cast extension in the Chrome browser.
When multiple devices are connected, Reflector will automatically adjust the device screens for a clean look. Easily emphasize a specific device or enable full-screen mode. Take the guesswork out of organizing devices, and spend more time concentrating on what’s important.
Record any connected device screen – Google Cast or AirPlay. Add voice over audio while recording the screen to create tutorials and learning materials instantly, and even include multiple devices in one recording. Coming soon, include webcam video and stream directly to YouTube in real time!
A new device menu makes managing connected devices easy. Change device preferences or alter display settings all from one convenient area. The UI has been completely overhauled to give you an easier way to manage Reflector.
The Reflector Director iOS companion app is the easiest way to manage devices connected to Reflector. Use the application on an iPad or iPhone to decide which screens are displayed and how they appear. Remotely show, hide and disconnect devices, and change display settings from anywhere in the room.
Last week, the Squirrels girls headed to Detroit to exhibit at the 2015 MACUL conference. Enthusiastic attendees were eager to learn about an upcoming Reflector 2 release and everything Squirrels has to offer.
Full of deep conversations and sessions, the annual MACUL conference is the event of the year for Michigan educators. Check out the MACUL15 hashtag on Twitter for a great recap of the event.
Also, a big congratulations goes out to our $500 Best Buy gift card winner: Violetta Kuzniar from Taylor International Academy!
Thank you #MACUL15 and every one who attended. Here are some pictures from the event!
Cluttered desktops are overwhelming and frustrating.When one screen isn’t enough, add AirParrot to create additional workspace. Increase your productivity and use multiple programs simultaneously by wirelessly extending your desktop from your Mac or PC! Here’s how:
How to Extend Your Desktop
You’ll need a copy of AirParrot installed and running. AirParrot is free to try for 7 days, and is a budget friendly purchase.
1. Open the AirParrot menu. Select “Extend Desktop” as your method of screen sharing. Then, choose your destination.
2. Your desktop should then show up on your television or monitor connected to your receiver.
3. Drag your applications to either screen as you please!
4. You can extend your desktop to Apple TV, Chromecast or Reflector, separately or at the same time. (Apple TV on the left, Chromecast on the right).
