What you need

  • A SAMSUNG tablet running Android 5 or higher (here we used a Samsung GALAXY NotePRO SM-P 905)
  • A Windows or MAC laptop / desktop computer
  • An online-meeting tool (e.g. Skype, Webex, Adobe Connect)

Installation

  1. To install SideSync download and install the software from http://www.samsung.com/us/sidesync/ on your PC or MAC.
  2. Install the SideSync App https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sec.android.sidesync30 on your Tablet.

How to Connect your Tablet to a PC or MAC

Using WLAN to Connect

Connect your tablet (Android 5 or higher required) and your PC or MAC device with the same WLAN.

Using a USB-Cable to Connect

Connect your tablet (Android 5 or higher required) and your PC or MAC device using a usb-cable. The advantage: your image quality is better than using WLAN.

How to start the Screen Mirroring

As soon as you connected your tablet with your PC or MAC:

1) Start SideSync on your PC or MAC

Normally SideSync automatically builds up the connection to your tablet, but you can also start SideSync on your tablet manually.

2) After the connection was established the following window should appear on your PC or MAC:

Hit the button "Tablet screen".
2) Hit the button “Tablet screen”.

Now you can see the screen of your tablet and interact with it. But you won’t see anything on the tablet and thus not yet be able to use the S-Pen.

3) On the window “Tablet screen”:

3) Open the menu in the upper left corner by pressing the arrow button.

4) Choose “Tablet Screen Mirroring” from the drop down menu:

Select "Tablet Screen Mirroring"
4) Select “Tablet Screen Mirroring” (German: “Präsentationsmodus aktivieren”)

Now you can use your tablet as usual with the S-Pen and your screen is being displayed on your PC or MAC.

5) To enable full screen hit the respective button on the upper right:

Use the button in the upper right to go to fullscreen with Mind-Objects in SideSync
5) Use the button in the upper right to go to fullscreen with Mind-Objects in SideSync

Sharing the Screen

Now you can share your screen displayed on your PC or MAC with any audience:

  1. (locally) through connecting a projector or TV to your PC or MAC (which is connected to your tablet via SideSync)
  2. or (via internet) through using any online meeting software like Skype / Webex / Adobe Connect etc.

We used SideSync in a presentation – have a look how it works in action:
