In the Classroom
The Diamond WPCTV3000 – Stream2TV is a device that wirelessly streams content from your tablet to a projector or big-screen TV in 1080P HD quality. It allows you to mirror what’s on your tablet and also extends views from your PC, Mac or laptop. The Diamond WPCTV3000 is a great companion for all teachers to enhance daily lessons with exciting multimedia content, internet educational video programs, online lessons and live education events.

Not just for teachers, but students can also share their educational presentations and content with their entire class on the projector from their laptops, desktops and Miracast enabled smartphones and tablets. Many students have access to their assignments and reports from their mobile devices. The WPCTV3000 gives each student the ability to display their reports and other content from their desk. The WPCTV3000 can also be directly wired to the school’s network or wirelessly paired to the school’s access points.

Training and Workshops
But it goes beyond just the classroom. The Diamond WPCTV3000 is also a valuable tool for training purposes. Having a large audience that you can actively share content with can be a vital part of your success as a trainer. Once you get the hang of streaming onto a large projector, your trainees will see you as a more consistently helpful resource they can count on, day in and day out.

At the Office
The Diamond WPCTV3000 is also the perfect solution to enhance conference room meetings. Any Windows, MAC based PC or Miracast enabled tablet can stream wirelessly. With a one-of-a-kind conference sharing capability, you can take control over content shared with meeting attendees. Impress your colleagues and inspire more success with rich content presentations, live events and any other content you need to share on the projector or big-screen TV.

How to Connect to a Big-Screen TV
Using a big-screen TV is just as easy. Again, sync your tablet, laptop or smartphone to the WPCTV3000 wirelessly. Then, with an HDMI cable, connect the WPCTV3000 to your big-screen TV to display a sharp, high-resolution mirror of all your content in 1080P HD. Set up multiple WPCTV3000s in each room of your school or office via Ethernet to the main router.

Saving Time with Diamond Multimedia Products

Your time is valuable and it should be treated as such. There are many ways to save time when doing business, playing games or surfing the web on our PCs, laptops or tablets and smartphones. If you value every minute of your day, then saving time with Diamond Multimedia products is one way to ensure that you get projects done faster, upload and connect to online content quicker and waste no energy getting there.

For every menial task that takes up a minute or two every day, how much of that time translates into lost time away from doing other things in your life? Your time is worth more. Below are a few Diamond Multimedia devices that I find, are truly an asset to saving time and getting more tasks done by organizing your digital work space in a neat, efficient and timely manner.

The Diamond USB303HE is a Super-Speed Hub with a Gigabit Ethernet port for faster internet and USB plug-and-play functionality. It’s simple, compact and goes with you and your laptop wherever you go. The 3 ports on the USB303HE can be used to plug in desktop peripherals that are stationary, so you don’t have to carry around a bunch of devices with you.

The Diamond Ultra-Dock DS3900 is a Dual-Video docking station similar to the USB303HE but comes with much more connectivity. This device is a bit more sizable but still fits anywhere on your desk, vertically, saving you space and time. The thing I like about this product though, is that you can leave all of your desktop peripherals connected to it, and just plug and unplug your laptop, tablet or Ultrabook as you come and go. With an HDMI port, you can even have a large screen TV nearby and watch your favorite videos and movies.

The Diamond Stream2TV WPCTV3000 is a wireless HD display adapter for your mobile device or PC. It wirelessly streams all of your content from your smartphone or tablet onto a big-screen TV. It also mirrors your laptop or PC screen. The WPCTV3000 also streams content to projectors and is very useful for educators and executives who want a fast, reliable way to convey their messages. With all the wires and cables of conventional methods of PC to TV streaming, the amount of time untangling and reorganizing your wires can lead to a lot of lost time.

The Diamond BVU3500 is a multi-display adapter that can be used to connect your HDTV, projector, laptop, tablet, Macbook or Ultrabook. You can have multiple monitors set up on your desk and just use your laptop or tablet as your main PC. Have up to six monitors* set up and view more content than ever before. Again you can have everything hooked up and all you have to do is plug and unplug your laptop and you’re off.

*Each display requires its own BVU3500.

The Diamond WR600NSI is a dual-band 2.4 GHz/5.0 GHz wireless range extender which can be plugged in anywhere in your home or office to provide a stronger and clearer WiFi signal. A wireless bridge support can convert your wireless signal to a wired Ethernet connection, connecting it to internet-ready devices such as HDTVs, game consoles, Blu-Ray and media players. The WR600NSI can also create a hotspot so you can quickly be online in places such as hotels.

The Diamond Game-Caster HD GC2000 is a game capture device that lets you capture and edit your game-play from gaming consoles and upload them to YouTube, Twitch or Facebook. Its LOOP-THROUGH function lets you record and play simultaneously with no delay as well as provide real-time Voice Commentary.  The GC2000 is an all-in-one gaming console companion that will become an important asset for anyone who wants to quickly upload their game strategies and tutorials.

Use the Diamond WPCTVPRO to Wirelessly Stream your Android Mobile Device to Your Large Screen HDTV or HD projector

On this second part of streaming to your large-screen TV, I really like the Diamond V-Stream WPCTVPRO which is a Wireless USB, PC to TV device that allows you to wirelessly stream HD video and internet content to your HDTV.

With an OTG Cable, you can now enable any Android 5.0 device to stream internet content on a large-screen TV by installing an app. Here is the link to the app:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.displaylink.desktop

Let’s look at how an OTG (On-the-Go) cable can make your life easier. Basically, an OTG cable is a small adapter that goes between your smartphone or tablet (in this case AndroidTM 5.0 devices) and a USB connection (in this case a Diamond WPCTVPRO transmitter that will allow wireless streaming from your device to a large-screen TV).

For me, this has replaced the need for any other cables and wires which may get in the way when I’m walking around in my living room. I just have a small transmitter connected to my Android OS smartphone and the WPCTVPRO connected separately to my large screen TV.

The Diamond WPCTVPRO not only supports your PC/Mac based computer but also supports your Android based smartphone or tablets. Mirror and stream your mobile screen to your large screen TV or projector without any wired restrictions such as with MHL and HDMI cables.

Impress friends and family with a streaming slideshow of your vacation movies and selfies. Use it in your office conference room,  stream internet content from your smart mobile device or share Google Doc presentations and slideshows on the conference room projector.

So if you want to share what’s on your mobile device, or simply want to see it on a large screen, without all the wires and cables connected to your TV, I HIGHLY recommend checking out the Diamond WPCTVPRO. The Diamond WPCTVPRO and other innovative multimedia products are available at: www.diamondmm.com.
