What is an audiovisual projection app?

An audiovisual projection application is a web, mobile, or desktop application that enables users to project content onto screens. Audiovisual projection apps typically include interfaces for configuring the screen resolution and color depth of the projection devices and selecting from among different input sources such as HDMI or VGA. They also usually include interfaces for viewing live video feeds from cameras or drones and managing the configuration of these devices.

Projection apps are often related to media management apps, such as photography apps, video editing apps, and audio recording apps. Examples of projection apps include PowerPoint, Keynote, Prezi, and Teleprompter.

How to successfully grow your audiovisual projection application

An audiovisual projection app can gain new users by offering an in-app education about how to use the technology, as well as by providing a short demo. In order to grow its user base, an audiovisual projection app should offer help getting the equipment and software set up, as well as offering tips on how to make the most out of the tech. As with all apps, these services must be delivered in a way that is consistent with the brand.

Risks and challenges of building a audiovisual projection application

An audiovisual projection app can face high liability risks related to the content it hosts. The app could be held liable for copyright infringement or defamation if it fails to take down user content in a timely manner. It is also important to build a mechanism within your application to allow you to respond quickly when you are notified of infringing content on your platform.
