Extron Launches ShareLink Pro 1000 Wireless and Wired Collaboration Gateway

Extron just introduced the ShareLink Pro 1000 Wireless and Wired Collaboration Gateway, which enables anyone to present content from their computers, tablets or smartphones onto a display. And, its 4K 4096×2160 output (4:4:4 8 bit color) and wireless compatibility will differentiate them.

Some unique features include something called WebShare, in which a technology displays slide images on attendee’s personal devices via a Web browser so students in a classroom or attendees in a meeting room can capture the presentation via a tablet, phone or laptop. This means the ShareLink Pro 1000 is fully ADA compliant. It’s also compatible with existing TeamWork Show Me cables, which provide connectivity and user input selection and control for TeamWork collaboration systems. They have Dual Gigabit Ethernet, thus providing two high-speed data links, enabling segmentation of guest and private networks for fast and easy access to the Web or other network resources.

Like almost everyone else BYOD product, ShareLink Pro supports simultaneous display of up to four devices including an HDMI-connected device and the Pro 1000 dynamically updates the display layout as new content is shared or removed. The HDMI input supports wired connections from any connected source. To support a wide range of environments, ShareLink Pro has collaboration and moderator modes that facilitate both open and restrictive environments. When used with Extron GVE – GlobalViewer Enterprise software, multiple units can be managed across an enterprise or campus.

The ShareLink Pro 1000 facilitates easy full-screen mirroring for all devices, including Mac and Windows computers and laptops, and Android and Apple tablets and smartphones, displaying the entire screen – not scaling it down from full-screen like most BYOD boxes. For enterprise wide deployments, it includes a fully-customizable welcome screen with multiple configuration options to assist users in connecting their devices and sharing content. A suite of security protocols ensures safe and protected collaboration between user devices and the ShareLink Pro 1000. In addition, centralized management tools enable simultaneous configuration, firmware updates, management, monitoring and control of multiple units from one central location.
Here are all the specs.
