Sharing Content on Polycom Trio

When a Polycom Trio Visual+ is connected to a TV monitor and paired with a Polycom Trio 8500 or 8800 system, you can share content with in-room meeting participants and during audio or video calls. You can use the following applications to share content:
  • Polycom® RealPresence® Desktop
  • Polycom® RealPresence® Mobile
  • Polycom® People+Content IP™
  • Apple® AirPlay®
  • Google Miracast®

Sharing Content with RealPresence Desktop or Mobile

To share content during a call, you can use RealPresence Desktop on your laptop or RealPresence Mobile on your tablet. If you do not have either application, you can download RealPresence Desktop onto your laptop from the RealPresence Desktop Support page or download RealPresence Mobile from your tablet's application store.

Using RealPresence Desktop on your laptop, you can choose to share your monitor or share an open application.

Using RealPresence Mobile on your tablet, you can choose to share content from local documents, photos, a website, or Dropbox. You can also choose to share annotations you make on the Whiteboard or Blackboard application within RealPresence Mobile.

Sharing Content from an Apple Device

If your system administrator has enabled the Screen Mirroring feature on Polycom Trio 8800, you can share content locally from your Apple® AirPlay®-certified device during in-room meetings. Note that you can share content using AirPlay during calls, but the content will not display for far-end call participants.

In order to share content from your Apple device using AirPlay, your device must be on the same network as the Polycom Trio 8800 system. If your device is on a different network than the Polycom Trio 8800 system, you can connect to Polycom Trio 8800 with AirPlay using Bluetooth, but the network that the Apple device is on must be able to communicate with the Polycom Trio network. Contact your system administrator for additional help connecting with Polycom Trio 8800 using AirPlay.

The Polycom Trio solution supports the following AirPlay-certified Apple devices:
  • iPhone®
  • iPad®
  • iPad Pro™
  • MacBook Pro®
  • Any other devices that support AirPlay

Sharing content with Polycom Trio using AirPlay works similar to sharing your screen to Apple TV. For more information on using AirPlay, refer to the documentation for your Apple product.

Note: When you answer an incoming call with content while you’re sharing content wirelessly with AirPlay, your content stops showing, and the content with the connected call displays instead. After you end the call, you can start sharing content again locally using AirPlay.

Sharing Content from a Windows or Android Device

If your system administrator has enabled the Screen Mirroring feature on Polycom Trio 8800, you can share content locally from your Miracast®-certified Android™ or Microsoft® Windows® device during in-room meetings. You cannot share content from your device wirelessly during point-to-point or conference calls.

The Polycom Trio solution supports the following Android and Windows devices:
  • Microsoft Surface® 3 Pro and Surface 4 Pro
  • Samsung Galaxy smartphones and tablets with software Android 4.2 or later.
  • Devices with Miracast® support with software 4.2 or later
  • Microsoft Windows 10 devices with Miracast support

For more information on sharing content wirelessly, refer to the documentation for your Android or Windows product.

Note: When you answer an incoming call with content while you’re sharing content wirelessly on a Windows or Android device, your content will stop showing, and the content with the connected call displays instead. After you end the call, you can start sharing content again locally from your Windows or Android device.
