Solstice Pod Guide

Solstice Pod is a product that allows people to wirelessly display (or "cast") their screens to a display in EHE classrooms and conference rooms. To begin, follow these steps:

How to do it

Select “Solstice Pod” as the input on the room’s AV system

On your device:

  1. Connect to osuwireless. (some devices require Bluetooth enabled)
  2. First time users, download the Solstice app.
    • Go to http://go.osu.edu/solstice
    • Download the software for the platform you are currently using (this app will not need to be re-downloaded for future use.)
  3. Launch the Solstice app.
  4. Go to the ‘Enter IP’ tab and type the IP address of the Solstice Pod, which is displayed either in the top right or bottom left corner of the room's display.
  5. Select what you would like to cast to the display. There are three options:
    • Entire desktop
    • Specific window
    • Specific media files
  6. Enter the screen key, which is displayed either in the middle of the screen or in the bottom left corner.

Note: To avoid constant notifications from the Solstice Pod client during connections, navigate within the application to ‘Settings’ and then ‘General’ and then select ‘None’ for notification settings.
