From July 15, 2022, Zoom will have a 40-minute limit even for meetings with two participants if you have a free subscription. (Previously, it was only for meetings with 3 or more people.)
Companies and organizations using Zoom for business should consider switching to a paid license at this opportunity.

When holding and participating in Zoom meetings and webinars, it is common to use a computer or mobile device.However, in fact, by connecting these terminals to a TV, it is possible to hold a web conference with Zoom displayed on the TV screen .

In this article , we will explain how to connect your computer or smartphone to the TV and the benefits of using Zoom on the TV screen .

How to use Zoom from a large screen by connecting a computer or smartphone to a TV

How to use Zoom from a large screen by connecting a computer or smartphone to a TV

First, we will explain how to connect a device such as a computer or smartphone to a TV screen.

It is necessary to use an “HDMI cable” to connect the device and the TV, and the type of terminal / cable that supports it varies depending on the device, so let’s check it out .

PC (Windows)

Many Windows computers have an HDMI terminal, so you can purchase a general HDMI cable.

However, depending on the type of computer, the supported terminals may be limited to “DisplayPort”, “DVI”, “Thunderbolt”, etc.

For example, if the terminal on the TV side is “HDMI” and the terminal on the computer side is only “DisplayPort”, you can support it by preparing a conversion cable from HDMI to DisplayPort.

The operation method after connecting the Windows computer and the TV with an HDMI cable is as follows.

  1. Right-click on the desktop and click Display settings
  2. Scroll to multi-display item
  3. Select “Duplicate display screen” or “Extend display screen”
  4. Start Zoom after confirming that the screen output to the TV was performed correctly

PC (Mac)

In the case of relatively new Mac computers (iMac, MacBook Air, MacBook Pro), most cases do not have an HDMI terminal.

Therefore, when connecting a Mac computer to a TV, it is necessary to prepare a conversion cable from HDMI to USB Type-C (Thunderbolt 3 compatible).

After connecting the Mac computer and the TV with an HDMI cable, the output is basically automatically performed on the TV side.

If you need detailed output settings, you can operate from the display settings in “System Preferences” .

iPad/iPhone

Since iPads and iPhones do not have HDMI terminals, a conversion cable from HDMI to Lightning is required.

When purchasing a Lightning conversion adapter, try to choose genuine products as much as possible.

Android

Like iOS devices, Android smartphones do not come with an HDMI port.

Therefore, you need a USB Type-C conversion cable for recent models , and a microUSB conversion cable for older models .

Is wireless mirroring connection possible?

So far, we have explained how to connect the device to the TV with a cable (HDMI cable), but you can actually connect to the TV wirelessly (Wi-Fi) .

However, it is necessary to pay attention to the fact that a special device is required to connect the device and the TV wirelessly, which increases the cost disadvantage .

Also, in the case of wireless, the video and audio tend to be distorted, and the device tends to heat up, so it is basically recommended to use it with a wire.

Organizer: Easy to grasp the state of the participants

The advantage for the organizer is that they can check the state of the participants on a large screen .

When hosting a Zoom meeting with a large number of participants, or when holding a Zoom webinar as a lecturer for a seminar or lecture, it may not be possible to check the facial expressions of participants on devices with small screens.

If you use Zoom on the TV screen, you will be able to grasp the situation of each person firmly even in situations where images of multiple people are displayed in gallery view.

Participants: Easy to see slideshows and lesson content

Even when using Zoom as a participant in a meeting or webinar, connecting to a TV is still convenient because you can check the progress on a large screen .

Also, for example, when taking online lessons such as dance and yoga using Zoom, connecting to a TV will make it possible to understand the movements of the instructor more clearly.

Participant: Can “watch while watching”

When using Zoom from a computer or smartphone, you have to keep your eyes on the screen all the time, so there are many cases where you feel stress such as eye strain and back pain .

However, if you use Zoom while connected to a TV, you can keep the content of the broadcast in view even while standing up in the middle or doing other work .

Also, for example, when taking online classes for children at home, many people may feel reluctant to let their children have a computer or smartphone.

By connecting the device to the TV screen, children no longer need to carry around a computer or smartphone, and there is also the advantage of being able to check the class from a distance.

summary

summary

  • By connecting your computer or smartphone to your TV, you can use Zoom from your TV screen.
  • Although wireless connection is possible, wired connection is superior in terms of communication quality and cost performance.

For general Zoom meetings, it is comfortable enough to use from a computer or smartphone, but depending on the content, such as when detailed text is used in a slideshow, it may be a little difficult to see.

In such a case, we recommend connecting the device to the TV using the method introduced here and watching the distribution content from the TV screen.

If you have an HDMI cable, you can easily connect, so if you use Zoom frequently, please try connecting to a TV.
