WyreStorm ScreenLink is a new collaboration software for wired or wireless (Wi-Fi) network display sharing from Windows and Mac devices to its 5x1 HDBaseT and AV Over IP Presentation Switchers, SW-0501-HDBT and NetworkHD NHD-SW-0501, respectively.
Potential applications include large screen corporate and collaborative classroom environments.
The software itself was designed to enable all users to start sharing their screens in seconds regardless of technical expertise. ScreenLink supports the simultaneous connection of up to 26 Mac or Windows laptops/computers to each SW-0501-HDBT or NHD-SW-0501 presentation switcher. Up to four computers can be displayed at the same time through a variety of configuration options; including single, dual, PiP and quad-view.
ScreenLink features a three-step on-screen set-up process with fast connection of new devices. Security is also a priority, which can be set to fixed, random, or no access code requirements.
After installing the software application via a direct download from the presentation switcher, USB key or web, user then only need connect to the local network, enter the on-screen number to start ScreenLink and beam their screens over the network to a display connected to the SW-0501-HDBT or NHD-SW-0501.
The convenience of wireless network streaming allows users to share their computer screens without worrying about connecting cables, ideal for viewing spreadsheets and documents to the room. For applications where latency is important when sharing of audio and video, such as video conferencing, voice over IP calls, software demonstrations and trainings both the SW-0501-HDBT and NHD-SW-0501 models support wired VGA and HDMI inputs for fully uncompressed, zero-latency sharing.
Both switcher models offer switching and auto scaling of 4x HDMI, 1x VGA sources up to 1920x1200p @60Hz, microphone input with phantom power, stereo inputs, and auto-mix stereo audio output. A variety of control options include front panel, built-in Web UI, CEC, contact closure panels, IP and separate or combined RS-232 to manage and control the switcher or external devices.
ScreenLink is available as a free download and preinstalled with SW-0501-HDBT (Q3 2016) and NHD-SW-0501 from Q4 2016
