In our BYOD enterprise environment, we are seeing tablets and phones being used nearly as much as, if not more, than a traditional notebook and desktop computers. When it comes to setting up a meeting room, what should you look for in a wireless presentation system that will be using mobile devices?
Since tablets and phones don’t have the same standard ports as a notebook, connectivity is always a factor. The simplest way to connect by using an HDMI output that is available on almost every tablet and mobile device. With an InstaShow USB-C button, plug it into your iPad Pro or Android device and start wirelessly presenting. You can also use a Lightning to HDMI adapter to connect to an HDMI button.
The other way is to use a mobile app such as BenQ InstaShare. These apps install on your phone and have been certified by Apple and Google for security. With the BenQ InstaShare app, you can either mirror your phone or cast photos and videos to the screen. You can use Miracast or Airplay protocols to connect to the InstaShow S receiver.
Our mobile devices contain a lot of confidential information that needs to be protected, and logging onto strange networks can be risky for both the host and visitor if something goes wrong. When physically connected to the InstaShow button, the mobile device does not need to be connected to the corporate network. Also, the InstaShow button will automatically encrypt the content to keep your confidential information from prying eyes. You can read more about the various security elements built into InstaShow here.
Now, everyone owns a smartphone and a tablet – how do you share information for easy collaboration on with such small screens? With InstaShow S, you can display four mobile devices on a single display at the same time – making it easy for iPads, Androids, Chromebooks, and Android devices to collaborate on a single 100-inch projector screen or 75-inch flat panel.
With over 30 brands of wireless presentations systems today – which one is right for you? Here is a comparison of three of the top-selling worldwide brands for BYOD devices:
The InstaShow S has several other features that make it attractive to notebooks as well, such as touchback capability to that enable interactive displays to annotate Windows computers and centralized management software to update and manage the units on a corporate network.
