What are the requirements?
PartyMeister doesn’t need much to work. Just these 3 things: - iPhone (or iPad) - TV or Projector - WiFi
Does PartyMeister work on every tv?
Yes, this photo-sharing app is suitable for every tv. PartyMeister works on the most famous TV brands in the world. Think for example of Samsung, LG, Sony, Panasonic, Hisense, Philips, etc. Our application also supports so-called media streamers such as Roku, Fire TV & Chromecast. Don't have a smart TV? No problem! Get Chromecast, Roku, or Fire TV. Plug it into the TV. Now you have a smart TV too! This ensures that PartyMeister can be used on your party or event.
Does the app support projectors and beamers too?
Yes, of course! You need a media streamer though. Get a Roku, Fire TV, or Chromecast. Connect it to the projector and WiFi. PartyMeister then automatically recognizes the media streamer in the network. Keep in mind that the photos on a projector or beamer may be less sharp. This is not caused by PartyMeister, but by the lower image resolution of the projector. Projectors & beamers often offer a bigger screen size than TVs. And, they are portable too. Making it easy to move around. However, the setup can be a pain. And, projectors are noisy too. In general, smart TVs have the very best picture quality. Definitely brand-new televisions.
How do I connect PartyMeister to a projector/ beamer?
Just follow these 5 easy steps: 1) Plug your Roku Stick’s HDMI plug to the projector input jack. 2) Turn on your projector & follow instructions. 3) Pick the WiFi network. 4) Make sure your iPhone is on the same network (not necessary for guests). 5) Search for TVs & connect PartyMeister with Roku device. That’s it! The same can be done with Amazon Fire TV and Google Chromecast. With this hardware, you can turn projectors into smart devices.
I have a TV, but no smart TV. How can I use PartyMeister?
No worries! It’s a piece of cake. Just follow these 6 simple steps. 1) Download PartyMeister in the App Store. 2) Get a media streamer like Chromecast, Roku or Fire TV stick. 3) Connect the media-device to the TV. 4) Connect TV to WiFi. 5) Connect PartyMeister to the media streamer. 6) Personalize the party settings & invite guests. That’s it!
How do I find out if the party location (wedding venue) has a smart TV?
Contact the location manager and ask if a smart TV is available. Perhaps he or she knows. If the TV is less than five years old, then it's almost certainly a smart TV. Otherwise, there are several ways to recognize a smart tv: The remote control of a smart TV has a button with a house on it. Also called "home". Old-fashioned (not smart) TVs don't have this. Press home. You will then see logos of apps appear, such as YouTube & Netflix. This means that it is a smart TV. Another method is to find out the year of manufacture of the TV. Most TVs made after 2011 are smart TVs.
Does the TV need to be connected to the internet?
Yes, the TV needs to be connected to WiFi. This is a stable network that can show your party photos in real-time on TV without any problems.
Do I need an Apple TV, HDMI or external hardware?
No, you don't need expensive, clunky or unsafe things to share photos on TV in real time. PartyMeister only requires a TV connected to WiFi. And, party-goers of course! We make it easy so you can enjoy your party with friends and family. Easily capture precious moments.
Does PartyMeister also work with Roku, Fire TV or Chromecast?
Yes! This revolutionary slideshow app also works on Fire TV, Chromecast & Roku. Our developers are experts in this field. They know better than anyone how the technology works for this. This means you don't have to worry about anything. With PartyMeister, your party will be phenomenal. Everyone shares their moment with the rest. So you can enjoy the best moments of your life forever.
How do I make sure that unwanted pictures are not shown on the screen?
Oh that's very easy! PartyMeister has a built-in moderation feature. It is automatically enabled unless you disable it. This means that photos must first be approved before they appear on television. Make someone at your party the moderator, do it yourself or turn off this functionality in the settings.
Is moderation required?
No, photo moderation is not required. It's your party, you're the boss. Easily turn off the photo moderation and trust the photo skills of your guests. Be aware that it is then possible to have blurry photos or other unwanted images appear on TV.
Does the moderator get a message with every new photo?
Yes, the moderator will receive push notifications when new photos are added by guests. This simplifies the approval or rejection process. Obviously, the moderator will not receive 10 push notifications when 10 photos are uploaded at once. In that case, the moderator will receive 1 notification for multiple photos.
Is it possible to ban specific guests from photo uploads?
No, this is currently not possible. Perhaps our app developers will implement this as a feature in the future. For the time being, we assume that everyone behaves decently at parties ;-)
