Vivi vs Airtame


Vivi and Airtame are widely used wireless screen-sharing solutions in education, BUT that doesn’t mean they were created equal.

There are several crucial differences that have real implications for teachers, students and IT Managers.

This product comparison has been designed to help you make the best choice for your school, district or higher education institution.

  • Purpose built - Vivi is purpose-built for education, offering teacher and student-specific engagement tools and enterprise management for school and district IT Admins.


  • Digital signage - Vivi includes a robust digital signage solution at no additional cost, offering broadcast of images, videos, live feeds, websites and Google Presentations to classrooms and common areas. Signage can easily be grouped into playlists and scheduled to display on one or multiple screens. Airtame’s offering requires an additional subscription to Airtame Cloud, costing $120 annually or $12 per month for each unit, or a basic version offered in Airtame Cloud Lite.


  • Centralised management - Vivi Central is a robust all-in-one cloud-based management system, designed for IT Admins in education, allowing them to set up rooms and locations, as well as to monitor and configure devices in bulk via the cloud based admin portal. Airtame has a free cloud offering with basic management and configuration capabilities.


  • Teacher control - Vivi has been designed so that the teacher always retains control over the shared display. Each user must log in to the app to access its features and is assigned appropriate access rights based on their identity as teacher or student. The teacher can give control to share a screen to a student or unlock the room to allow students to share without requiring permission. Airtame provides access to streaming moderation and, once the new role has been enabled, can disconnect others at any time.


  • Direct video - Vivi’s direct video play allows teachers to stream HD videos directly to the screen and projector while using their device for other purposes. With videos playing an ever-increasing role in 21st century education, this is incredibly useful. Airtame doesn’t offer this functionality.


  • Collaboration - In modern classrooms it’s common for students to collaborate in small groups, in some cases supported by multiple screens or projectors in the single learning space. Vivi enables student groups to present different content onto individual Vivi-enabled screens, and even have up to 4 presenters on a screen at once. Airtame doesn’t offer this functionality.


  • Personalised professional development - Vivi provides professional development and training to teachers and staff, onboarding and unlimited support, all included with the solution at no additional cost.

Why Vivi?

Investing in technology that can be monitored and measured is the best way to ensure accountability among users.

For this reason, Vivi provides a metrics dashboard and reporting that enables administrators to review how often teachers and students are presenting to the screen, who the most active users are, which classrooms are seeing the most Vivi usage and how often specific Vivi features are being used.

These insights enable administrators to better understand how the system is being used, and to provide support and training to help all users get maximum benefit from the technology in their classroom.

Vivi is the only screen sharing platform on the market that provides this level of pedagogical transparency.
