A room is exactly what it sounds like. It's the meeting space Ditto will be used in — a conference room, classroom, lecture hall, huddle space, common area, etc.
To add a room:
Log in to the Ditto Account Portal.
Click the “Rooms” tab.
Click “New Room” (or “Add Your First Room” if you haven’t added a room yet).
- Enter room name. You can make this whatever you want. It’s simply a way to identify the room in your Ditto Account Portal.
- Designate a Location (optional). Locations make it easy to organize rooms in the Ditto Account Portal. This will not affect your end users.
- Add this room to a room group (optional). Room groups are like categories that help you filter in the Account Portal. This will not affect your end users.
- Add a receiver to this room. This is how you make a room “active.” A receiver is simply the device in the room that Ditto connects to. Learn how to set up receivers.
Note: You may create as many rooms as you want. You are not billed until you pair a room to a receiver to create an “active” room.
Click “Save Room” to save the room to your Ditto account.
You may also add a room using the Ditto Configuration Application. The application can be downloaded from your Ditto Account Portal. It is available for Mac, 32-bit Windows and 64-bit Windows. The configuration tool can detect and add supported receivers found on your network.
The Ditto Configuration Utility can be used to add rooms and receivers to your Ditto account. However, it can only add older receiver types such as Apple TV 3, Apple TV 2 and Chromecast. Newer receiver types have different pairing instructions.
