Trivia Wifi not so Trivial at Alzheimer's Australia Fundraiser

When you have 90 IPads, to get ready for a night of cloud-hosted Trivia, Auctions and all round fun for a good cause, you better have good Wifi. Fortunately for Alzheimer's Australia they had Haycom looking after them.

Barrett Evolution was engaged to provide an Event Wifi System and 4G Service to supplement the venues existing services. Configuration of the 90 iPads had to be done onsite due to a short lead-time but thanks to a massive combined effort the guests enjoyed a marvelous night and their generosity will help continue the fight against Dementia.

Can't see the Screen? No Problem

Got an awkward room layout and want to ensure your clients can see the presentation? Consider live streaming the presentation to iPads.

While there are a number of Apps to allow iPads to mimic and a PowerPoint or KeyNote presentation, none have the flexibility that a Live Video Stream provides, but beware, without the correct engineering live streaming to event 10 iPads in Full-HD will stretch even the best Wifi.

Haycom and Barrett Evolution worked together to design a system in 2013 for an event on a luxury yacht and it was most recently deployed at the Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel Sydney.
