Wireless Screen Mirroring Options for Interactive Flat Panels - which is the best?

Best Wireless Screen Mirroring Solutions for Interactive Flat Panels

According to Futuresource, sales of interactive touch screens have nearly doubled since 2015 and are becoming prevalent in corporate and education collaboration rooms where two-way communication is needed to communicate your ideas.

Because of their size and weight, interactive panels typically are mounted on the wall, or on rolling stands to be able. to be positioned where they are most effective.. The problem – where – and how - do you run a long HDMI cable to enable effective collaboration? Running cables through the wall and floor can be expensive (and impractical) – and dragging cables around when you move the display in a room is not very safe or convenient.

The answer – a wireless presentation system, InstaShow. These systems enable you to connect a receiver to an HDMI input on the panel – and present from anywhere in the room. But what kind of system is best for an interactive flat panel – and what features should you look for? Here are five things to look for when selecting a wireless presentation system for your interactive flat panel.

Key Feature #1 – 4K Resolution

Nearly all panels sold today feature 4K resolution, so make sure your wireless presentation system supports the standard default resolution of your new flat panel. 1080p will work fine, but when you are using a split-screen, you will want as much detail as possible to see the details.

Feature #2 - Split or Quad Screen Capability

Collaboration means sharing ideas – so why not put both ideas on the screen at the same time. For that matter, why not four ideas? The best wireless presentation systems can support four or more presenters at the same time – although trying to keep track of six or seven different presentation screens at the same can be pretty messy.

Feature #3 - Interactive Touch Back to the notebook

You can write on your new interactive screen – so why not capture that in your notebook. Many of the latest wireless presentation systems will enable Windows users to annotate and control their presentations or spreadsheets right from the panel – and save it on their notebook. Real-time collaboration that enables you to mark up your files is a game-changer when it comes to fast-moving idea generation sessions.

Feature #4 - Hassle-Free Connection

To share your screen on the panel, you need to connect to it. The simplest – and most popular way to connect to the display is a simple button. According to Futuresource, buttons are the # 1-way companies use. (chart and link) Attach the button, and you should be able to connect in seconds. For mobile devices, you can also use buttons, as well as special apps that enable you to connect wirelessly. Avoid systems that require proprietary apps that need to be loaded on your notebook to work, as they can make the system difficult to use for visitors.

Feature #5 - Secure Encryption

Want to make sure your confidential information doesn’t fall into the wrong hands? Encrypt it. While some wireless presentation systems broadcast your content over the network openly, the best systems take extra steps to make sure that what you send to the interactive panel can only be seen on that panel. (what happens in Conference room B stays… ). Make sure that from the moment the data leaves your notebook, it is using 128-bit encryption, and that you are not sending content over the network openly.

While there are a lot of wireless presentation systems available today, which are the best for interactive flat panels – and what are the tradeoffs between features and costs between the most popular brands?
