How is the Touchjet Pond projector compatible with my iPhone, iPad or MAC?

There are 3 options on how your iOS device can be compatible with your Touchjet Pond projector.

1. Using the Touchjet App on your iPhone and iPad, you can use your iPhone / iPad as a remote control for both the Pond and WAVE.

2. Via the mini HDMI port at the back of the Pond. You will need the following cables.

  • HDMI to mini HDMI cable
  • Lightning Digital AV Adaptor 

Connect the Pond via the cables with your iOS device. Then switch the Input Source by clicking on the On/Off icon. When an external device is connected to your Pond, it will function only as a projector (duplicating the image from that source).

 

For more information, please check out our Getting Starting video.

3. MirrorOp App - To take advantage of the interactive screen you can try the App, MirrorOp, to connect your iOS devices to your Pond via a local wifi network, the touch interactive screen works in this configuration, but you may get delays (less than 1 seconds on most wifi connections, but can reach 3-4 seconds). The Pond will be the MirrorOp Receiver and your iOS device will be the MirrorOp Sender. For more information, please go to MirrorOp's website.  http://www.mirrorop.com/product_Mac_Sender.html

    I have plugged a mini Displayport to HDMI lead with a HDMI to mini-HDMI adaptor from my MacBook Pro laptop to the Touchket Pond but nothing happens. Is the projector meant to do something automatically when an HDMI device is plugged into it or do I have to do something to switch to this? The DisplayPort to HDMI cable works when I plug it into a monitor, so it is not defective.

    Also, please specify a few examples of free applications that enable wireless streaming from Macs.

    I am also facing the same issue, plugged Mac HDMI port to Projector mini-HDMI port, nothing happens. I couldn't see any additional display screen options in Mac. Do we need to do anything in the projector settings? I cannot locate any options related to source inputs?

    Could someone list out the apps that would work? Are these Android apps or Mac apps? Did anyone get their projector working with the HDMI port?

    Apparently, pressing with the stylus the last button on the far left of the home screen that looks like a power button, switches it to HDMI input. Unfortunately in my case, it just went to a blue screen saying "No signal". The HDMI was plugged into my MacBook laptop. Interested to know whether anyone else had the same experience or actually got it to work. Currently, no evidence the HDMI port actually actually works. Very disappointing.

    Thanks for the tip Adam, it worked me perfectly. I could project Macbook pro using the HDMI port.

    Hi Naran, then perhaps it is the cable I am using. Could you point me to the exact cable you used to connect your Mac to the projector?

    Adam - I am using Mini HDMI to HDMI Cable, Male to Male. Cable is connected to HDMI port of Macbook Pro to MiniHDMI port of Touchjet.

    I would like to inform about a superb software that you can install on your Pound projector. It´s name is AirPlay/DLNA Receiver and it make your Pound Air play compatible. Air mirroring from a iOS device or MAC computer works without any problem, streaming directly from a iOS device currently cause a error. It make connection really simple and it worked to stream a movie / presentation directly with the mirroring function and no cables at all :).
