Since 2002, IT managers and corporate collaboration experts have been trying to improve team collaboration and brainstorming by enabling multiple people to do wireless presentations at the same time. The most famous collaboration room in the world is the White House Situation Room, where the President and his advisors can interact with multiple screens simultaneously to arrive at the best course of action.
For corporations on a smaller budget than the White House, the basic need for team collaboration is still strong, but most current solutions typically require network logins, a lot of bandwidth, and expensive (and often proprietary) systems. Enter the BenQ InstaShow S, a revolutionary new approach to corporate collaboration.
While there are many ways to wirelessly present in a meeting room, ranging from a $129 Apple TV to a $50K custom programmed AV control system, many of these approaches only will display a single screen at a time. Many companies use apps like TeamViewer to enable multi-presenter collaboration, which requires complicated network logins – and bandwidth – to show everyone’s screen.
The BenQ InstaShow S wireless presentation system is different. Using its unique HDMI wireless technology, you simply plug in a button to your device, then tap and present. Want more presenters on the screen? Push the multi-screen button, and the next presenter shows up on the split screen. The InstaShow can handle up to four simultaneous presenters at a time without loading an app or logging onto a network.
No IT manager takes security lightly – and the concern of having your confidential collaboration sessions being transmitted over the internet can be concerning to some companies. The InstaShow S uses a 128-bit encryption methodology to transmit data from the button to the receiver, ensuring that no one can see the content – whether they are on the internet- or just in the next room.

With the growing popularity of BYOD devices in the workplace, you want a system that can collaborate effectively with whatever device the presenter wants to use. While most wireless presentation systems work well with Windows and MacBooks, newer devices such as Chromebooks don’t work with the many popular wireless presentation systems. With InstaShow, you can plug into nearly anything that has an HDMI output including Chromebooks, Chromebits, and even Raspberry Pi’s – regardless of what operating system they are running. Imagine an engineering collaboration session to debug a software program using a MacBook, Windows notebook, iPad, and Raspberry Pi – all on the same screen. With InstaShow – it is not only possible – but effortless.
At $1499, the InstaShow S can improve your collaboration sessions without expensive network configuration, costly annual subscriptions, or complicated software apps. Its secure design keeps your IP from falling into the wrong hands, and its ability to use nearly any device can help teams understand and address issues quickly and decisively.
