These instructions are for anyone who would like to mirror their Mac to a wePresent device using MirrorOp. If you haven't already done so, you will first need to install the MirrorOp application which is used in conjunction with the wePresent device. wePresent MirrorOp Software Installation (Mac)

1. In the wePresent equipped room, the user will need to turn on the projector and toggle the input on the projector’s remote control or use the Hitachi projector control software located on the instructor's workstation to select the wePresent device. In a wePresent equipped conference room, please make sure to select the proper input, often HDMI2. Once the correct input has been selected on the projector or display, the Passcode and IP Address will appear on the screen.

2. Launch the MirrorOp application on your device.
3. Before connecting to the wePresent device, evaluate the current username MirrorOp will use to connect to the wePresent device. From the Menu bar under MirrorOp select Preferences.
For students, change the username in the “Name” field and evaluate for appropriateness.

Note: This username is essentially your “display” name which will be displayed to your classmates via the projector screen while you’re connected to the wePresent device.

Once this is done, close the window by clicking the Red Circle in the upper left-hand corner of the window.

4. Enter the hostname or IP Address you obtained in step 1 and click CONNECT.

5.  Enter the Passcode obtained in step 1 and click OK.
