An overview of the different ways you can avoid sharing cables in collaboration spaces
Wireless presentation system is a device that allows you to mirror your notebook or mobile device content on a shared projector, flat panel, or TV without a need to plug in a cable. Presenters can be switched at a click of a button and no precious time will be wasted wasted. According to Gartner Research, wireless presentations systems are one of the top 10 strategic technologies to improve BYOD collaboration in office spaces.
Unlike consumer wireless dongles for screen mirroring, commercial wireless presentation systems are designed to improve collaboration during meetings and enable multiple presenters to share ideas, concepts, and media without having to plug in a long cable. Because these are purpose-built for collaboration, a typical system will have these key elements:
Multiple presenters – Most systems come with at least two buttons to enable collaboration out of the box and can support 16 or more different presenters.
Content Encryption – Market leaders in this category encrypt the content so that people outside the meeting room cannot wirelessly “listen in” or record the presentation.
What are the most popular features in wireless presentation systems?
For budget reports, calendars and schedules, the ability to read small text on a shared display is crucial to the collaborative process. Most commercial-grade wireless presentation systems will deliver 1080p resolution, while the more expensive versions can deliver 4K.
Companies rely on videos to effectively communicate their messages to their customers. Different models of wireless presentation systems handle video differenty and depending on the type and configuration of the wireless presentation system, it can be easy to be able to play videos over the system at frame rates up to 60 frames per second without jittering or frozen frames.
Multiple Screen Options
Many mid-range and higher-end systems enable you to display more than one image on the screen. The most popular models can provide either a split-screen with two presenters or support quad screens with four presenters. When combined with 4K resolution, this enables each presenter to have a high-resolution 1080p image that makes the details of a spreadsheet easy to read.
When connected to an interactive flat panel or projector, the touch back feature can enable a presenter to annotate and control the presentation directly from the screen – while wirelessly saving the changes and notes on a Windows notebook.
Custom Welcome Screen
Commercial-grade systems typically have welcome screens that can be customized via text or special welcome graphics to provide instructions or reminders to the people in the meeting room.
