WIRELESS BYOD PRESENTATIONS
Extron’s new ShareLink 200 Wireless Collaboration Gateway enables anyone to present content from personal devices including Windows and OS X computers as well as Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.
ShareLink technology provides simultaneous display of presentations, images, documents, and other content from up to four different personal devices, eliminating the need to constantly change sources during a session. Content from a single device shows full screen, and content from multiple devices appears simultaneously in four windows on the display. Any user can share content and control the presentation when it is set to collaboration mode, and a moderator mode ensures only approved content is displayed.
Designed for professional AV applications, this wireless gateway also includes integrator-friendly features such as an integrated wireless access point, Power over Ethernet, and front-panel mounted antennas. It can be used to create a stand-alone wireless collaboration and presentation system or to add wireless presentation capabilities to a variety of wired AV system designs.
“The trend toward BYOD use in collaborative and presentation spaces has fundamentally changed how we design and build AV systems for meeting rooms, classrooms, and boardrooms,” says Extron VP of sales and marketing, Casey Hall. “ShareLink 200 is designed to offer our customers a reliable wireless solution that supports a wide range of devices and platforms, enabling flexible content sharing from smartphones, tablets, laptops, and desktops in virtually any environment.”
The ShareLink 200 enhances presentation for audience members with WebShare technology, which enables content to be sent over the network to a web browser on each attendee’s personal device and is particularly useful if sightlines to the display are interrupted or when slides need to be saved for future reference. ShareLink also allows a Windows or OS X computer to communicate with multiple ShareLink 200 units on a network to send the same content to up to four displays, for example in larger spaces with multiple displays or to support adjacent rooms used for overflow. For easy integration into modern digital and legacy analog systems, ShareLink 200 includes HDMI and VGA video outputs to support a variety of display devices and system switchers.
