Video Conferencing on-the-go Made Possible with Skype for iPad

August 2, 2011

So you may have noticed that we like to write iPads, and that would be for several reasons.  Our customers love them, and so do we—not just because they pack all of the functionality of a laptop or PC into a compact tablet weighing just over a pound, but because there are continuous developments with new apps and accessories creating more opportunities for expansive use in multiple industries.

The latest development for our multi-purpose tablet rental—Skype has officially released its iPad app to the iOS App Store.

Whether you’re using the Wi-Fi at your local hotspot, or if you purchase a 3G data plan with your rental, you can start chatting away with your boss, employees—whoever.  Also, Skype for iPad has further features beyond that of what is available for iPhone.  Beyond just video chat, you can also instant message your counterparts while simultaneously talking on a video call.

Now you can download and use Skype on iPad AND iPad 2, although with the former—you’re face will remain hidden without the handy camera available on the newer version.  But it’s still useful to receive video, or chat, if that’s what you’re into.

Download Skype on your iPad rental and call anybody using Skype—whether that person be on a his or her laptop, or even an iPhone, as long as the device is running on iOS 4.0 or above.

To learn more about video conferencing with your iPad, or if you’d like to use an iPad or iPad 2 for an event, trade show or other project, contact us at Hamilton Rentals.  We’re the largest IT rental company in Europe with a massive fleet of tablets available for hire, and we ship internationally.

Mirroring Brings Maximum Functionality to iPad and Plasma Hire

August 1, 2011

At Hamilton Rentals, we regularly supply companies with AV solutions for corporate events whether it’s for 10 viewers at a board meeting, or 1,000 viewers at a trade show or sporting event.  What’s been pretty cool for both us and for our customers is not just the developments with the hardware itself, but with the attachments that let you use products together– combining the technologies of the two to get the maximum functionality and convenience out of the chosen products for hire.

The most recent development in this respect has been with the iPad and iPad 2, which you can now sync up to our LCD and plasma hire lineup, thanks to the new HDMI adapter released earlier this year. Whether you want to stream video, a photo slideshow, or maybe you have a PowerPoint presentation that you’d like to present on a high resolution screen, just hook up your iPad rental and your audience can view every action in real time.

As we’ve mentioned before, you can access your PowerPoint presentation using the application iWork, which also gives you access to apps Numbers and Pages.

If this bundle sounds like the ideal set up for your next meeting or exhibition, contact us at Hamilton Rentals.  Your hardware will be specifically configured for your special requirements, and we’ll provide you with flexible rental options.

In the mean time, check out the video above to see the mirroring function in action.  While it’s dually convenient because of the portability options made available by the light iPad,  the technology itself is pretty neat, and sure to impress your audience.
