For your group to get the full experience of RightNow Media, we suggest you show the videos on a television or through a projector. 

If you own an iPhone, iPad or even an iPod Touch, you can begin streaming RightNow Media directly to your TV or projector by following these simply steps:

  1. CHOOSE YOUR CONNECTION -
    Every projector and television will have different types of inputs. You will need to figure out what inputs are available to you before moving to the next step.
     
    1. RCA Input (aka Composite) - This is the most common type of input and is found on almost every TV and projector. It is commonly represented as a three circular inputs; red, white (for audio) and yellow (for video)

    2. HDMI Input - This is the highest-quality input that you could use to send video to your TV or projector. This is a thin input that is about 3/4" wide.

    3. Component Input - This is not as common, but still a usable input. It is also represented by circular inputs similar to RCA, but instead you will need to use 5 different inputs to show both video and audio; red & white (for audio) and then green, blue and red (for video).

    Once you have determined which input you would like to use, you will need to purchase the appropriate corresponding cable:

  3. PLUG IT ALL IN - 
    1. Plug your iPhone, iPad or iPod into your television using the appropriate adapter/cable above.
    2. Make sure you are on the correct video input on the television or project. You should be able to cycle through all of the different inputs by pushing the "Video Input" or "Input" button on the remote, on the television or on the projector.
  4. START STREAMING VIDEO - 
    1. On your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, open the "Safari" application and navigate to http://www.rightnowmedia.org.
    2. Find the video session that you would like to show and then click "Play Session"
    3. When the session begins to play, click the "FullScreen" button and the video and audio will be sent to your television or projector.
