I'm wondering if it would be possible to use android-based tablets (or ipads) in business meetings.

The idea would be to have each person in the meeting, with its individual tablet, see what a "meeting-leader" is seeing on his own tablet, navigating through the web or using apps.

I see some solutions that seem to be mostly directed into remote-control, but what I want is just to screencast in realtime to multiple receivers, privately. The ability to let some other person take control would also be nice, but not mandatory.

How could I set this up?

  • I know this is an old thread but I was wondering if you found a solution to your question. I am facing the same issue; I need to share my android tablet screen with a different android tablet. It would be helpful if I can find any ideas. Thank you! – user8948 Oct 19 '11 at 12:35

You may use join.me for this. The organizer installs the client on his/ her machine and rest everyone may join in through their web browser.

    Didn't know about it. Seems an interesting utility, but it seems to enforce that the "meeting-leader" has a windows machine, and ideally in my setup, everyone would use tablets, including the "meeting-leader". I'm hoping for something better, but maybe this is the best there is, who knows. – luisfaceira Nov 16 '10 at 17:18
  • An Android device can't initiate a meeting using joinme, it can only join a meeting initiated by a windows pc or linux computer. – user10845 Dec 21 '11 at 16:06

There is a nice little app by Smart Dog Studio called Remote Control Add On that will let your device act as a VNC server. You can then connect as many clients as you like using the VNC client of your choice (I usually use Android VNC Viewer).

Frame rate is a little low, but definitely adequate for a presentation that doesn't involve video.


There is an app for this: Screen Stream. I use it and it works.
