Want to show handwriting, a 3D object, a calculator, or something else while on a Zoom?

Did you know you can use Mirroring360 and your iPad or mobile phone (iOS or Android) as a Doc camera?

Here's how!

  1. Connect your mobile device to Mirroring360
  2. Open the camera app on your device (pro tip: mute all notifications). Secure in a DIY doc cam rig (optional).
  3. Then when on Zoom, select to share your screen, which is mirroring your mobile device!
