Chromebook is now officially supported by Airtame!
01/10/16: Chromebook is the newest OS that is now able to stream to Airtame devices. It is the first version for this operating system and will receive future updates at the same time as the other operating systems.
Some of the cheaper Chromebooks, as mentioned above, don’t have a dedicated chip that does hardware encoding, which we use for streaming. Users with these Chromebooks will, therefore, experience a poor video streaming performance. The schools we talked to had all bought Chromebooks with the correct chip. We expect to support Intel-based chips i3, i5, i7, m3, m5, m7 or newer Celeron/Pentium or Atom based chipsets.
On high-end computers (like Dell Chromebook 13 - 7310), you can expect a smooth stream at 30 fps with high quality (considering that your network can support that).
For lower end computers (with processor n2840 or similar and with 2 to 4 GB RAM) you should not expect the same quality. For a video stream, you can expect 16-17 fps with lower quality. For static images or presentations, you can expect 20 fps with medium quality.
⚠️ Currently not supported
It's on its way but the Chromebook application does not currently support streaming with audio. If you plan to watch videos, the audio will come out of your computer's speakers.
Chromebooks that use an ARM processor will not be able to run the Airtame Application. This includes models such as the Acer Chromebook Flip and the Acer Chromebook 13 C810
Although this extension can be installed on non-chrome OS devices, it will not work.
We’re constantly growing and evolving how Airtame performs with different platforms, and we want to hear from you to ensure we’re building the product that works for your needs. Do you use Chromebooks in your institution? Tell us about how you plan to use it by writing to email@example.com
