Hello! I’ve got the coolest, newest thing
to share with you. It’s a way of sharing your iPad screen on any computer. Interested? Keep
watching. Hi there! Gideon Shalwick here. In today’s
video, I’m going to share with you something that I’ve been looking forward for quite a
while. And that is how to share the screen of your iPad on any computer screen of your
choice. That has a number of really, really cool applications;
if you’re wondering what the heck am I talking about, why would you want to do that. Well
first off, when you’re doing educational type of videos, this one for example, you want
to be able to switch between what you’re doing on your iPad screen and whatever else, whatever
you’re recording. That’s very useful for people like me who are recording videos like this. It’s also useful if you just want to use it
like a Bamboo writing tablet. You can use this like a writing tablet for your computer.
Not quite, but you’ll see what I mean soon. This is really really great. Now, I’ve got
a couple of sources to credit for this. The first one is Mashable; on one of their videos,
they talked about this little sort of thing. The Bamboo Stylus that you can use for drawing
on your iPad. I know it’s been around for ages, but I’ve just got one myself. It’s really
really cool. It has taken my iPad to a whole new level. And the other person I want to credit is Ed
Dale for showing the application that you need to use for sharing your iPad screen with
any other computer screen of your choice. How does this work? Let’s have a look. The basic setup is if you just want to share
the screen of your iPad on a computer screen. So I’ve got another computer here. In fact,
there’s another computer sitting right there. I can see the same screen that I have on my
iPad on my screen over there that I’m recording, by the way. But if you just want to have a really simple
setup, this is what is going to look like. You are going to have your iPad over hereÉ
Actually, let’s get to see how this works in real life. I’m going to use a red pen here.
So I’m going to circle this. This is your iPad, of course. Just so that you can see. You’re running a special app on here. Basically
that sends the screen images to your computer screen over here, which is very very cool.
This all happens in real time, It’s pretty much instant. You can go full screen on your
computer to make it look pretty good. There are some issues with the aspect ratio because
the aspect ratio of your iPad is probably not going to be the same as the screen aspect
ratio of your computer screen. The other thing that I also use and recommend is recording
with Screenflow and Camtasia. The app that you need for this is actually
not something that you install on your iPad. It’s something that you need to install on
the computer where you want to share the screen of your computer. The app that you need for that is called Reflection.
I think it’s called Reflection, or something like that. I’ll link to it below this video.
So you just click on it and go and get it. I think it’s something like 5 or 10 bucks.
How ever much it is, it’s totally worth it because it allows you to share your screen
like this which is very very useful. Say, you want to do what I’m doing in this
video, for example. You want to flick between what you have on your iPad screen and what
you’re recording on your camera. For that you’ll need a setup like this — an Advanced
Setup. That’s me, sitting at the desk with my little
iPad over there. Of course, that is now sending the signals out to my computer where it’s
getting recorded, the screen is getting recorded there with either Screenflow or Camtasia,
if you’re on PC. Of course, here’s my camera, recording me.
What happens is this is not a real time thing where I switch between the screen on my iPad
and the screen of my computer, or the screen that you’re seeing through the camera. I do
this afterwards in Screenflow, then I just flick between whatever gets recorded and what
gets recorded on my computer screen right now. Well it will be, later on when you watch
it. Let’s not going to get into that rabbit hole. In any case, that is the sort of setup
that you need to be able to do that. I’m sure you can think of a ton of other really
cool applications for this. I have just found this really really good for educational purposes
and for illustration purposes. As you can see, I can be very visual here with my communication
and it’s super quick for me to prepare now. I don’t even need to think about creating
Keynote slides presentations and stuff. I can just flick between what I have drawn on
my iPad and what I’m recording on the camera. Tell me, how would you like to use this? Do
you have sort of other applications in mind? I’d love to hear your thoughts. Leave your
