Using TrialDirector for iPad Presentation
When an external display is connected and the TrialDirector for iPad is
launched, a black background screen appears on the external display with the
TrialDirector for iPad logo in the center of the screen. When the external
monitor is connected, the presentation control buttons automatically appear
in the top right corner of the screen. To clear the external monitor of any
content, tap the mirroring button and the external monitor will go dark.
To present documents in a single or dual-pane mode, click the Show button
at the top of the TrialDirector for iPad application window. The contents
(including all annotations and projections) in the TrialDirector for iPad viewer
area appear on the external display. While the Show option is enabled, any
document manipulation (zoom, annotation, projection, pan etc.) immediately
shows on the external monitor.
To present multimedia (audio or video) click the Show button at the top of
the TrialDirector for iPad application window. The video will appear only on
the external monitor while the playback controls can still be seen and used on
the iPad, though the rest of the presentation screen will be dark.
Click the Play button in the bottom left of the multimedia frame to begin
playback. The multimedia begins dedicated playback to the external display.
You can use the multimedia scrubber bar to immediately seek to a desired
position within the multimedia stream. When mirroring is not activated, a “TV
Connected” message appears on the external screen.
