I am still not sure if one needs a wifi connection (or SIM card for iPad) to view a presentation.  If not, how does one go "On Air".  I might still be new and ignorant, but there is no way to save a presentation.  It is only available on the Proclaim servers.  Am I right?

Going "On Air" simply means that Proclaim is in presentation mode and will output (through your computer's video card) to your second monitor or projector. You don't need to be on a wifi network unless you are planning to use the signals feature or the remote control apps for Android an iOS. I hope that helps.

Platform Details for Alpha/Beta Testing Reference:

  • Windows 7 Home Premium x64

Hi Diederick

You can't "save it" to a specific file or an external resource (such as a pen drive) but when you create the presentation on your computer as will as being stored on the Proclaim servers a cached copy is kept on yours.

So you can use this cached copy to run an "On Air" presentation from. So if, for example, you were to create the presentation on a laptop in a Wi-Fi enabled area you could take the laptop to your church and use it to run the presentation when disconnected from the Internet.

As Chris points out there are some limitations to be aware of

Now my ignorance is showing.  Where is the cache to be found on the Mac system?

Hi Diederick

There is an interesting discussion on this at http://community.logos.com/forums/t/46211.aspx.

It ends by Scott (from Logos) saying that they are not intended to be end-user accessible.

I don't know where the cache is found but, based on Scott's comment, I wouldn't try and access it directly!
