What is Ditto?

Ditto is a software product that facilitates wireless video connections between customer computers and installed AV hardware.

Engineering IT is currently piloting Ditto as a universal wireless presentation solution. The inital pilot in Fall 2017 is focusing on utilizing Ditto with existing Apple TVs. This allows Windows PCs, Apple OSX PCs, and Apple iOS devices to connect to the Apple TVs. Initial hardware testing is also underway with a different wireless receiver that will also allow most Android based devices to connect wirelessly.
