InFocus Corporation has been in the wireless presentation market nearly as long as Barco (the inventor of the market-leading ClickShare), although InFocus’ marketshare in that market hasn’t been significant. But now InFocus is back with a new button-based system called SimpleShare — a point-to-point presentation solution for wireless connectivity and sharing of videos, presentation, documents, data and more. SimpleShare is device-agnostic and allows users to share high-definition video and sound wirelessly to any display with an HDMI input. SimpleShare allows for a plug-and-play installation with no software, downloads, or network management required, making it incredibly user-friendly for anyone to implement without burdening the IT department. Users can also switch between up to 254 presenters with the click of a button.
Available in three bundled solutions, there is a SimpleShare package for every application. The base model SimpleShare (INA-SIMS1) includes one transmitter and receiver perfect for a small meeting room; SimpleShare Presentation System (INA-SIMPS1) is a complete conference room solution with three transmitters and a charging station; SimpleShare Touch Presentation System (INA-SIMINT1) supports up to three presenters with wireless touch control from a touch display panel, and allows users to annotate on anything they present from their source device, as well as draw and write on a built-in digital whiteboard.
The SimpleShare platform was designed with information security top of mind. SimpleShare utilizes WPA2, the most secure encryption method available, developed by the Wi-Fi Alliance. Servicing a radius of 15 meters from the receiver, the AES-CCMP algorithm used is a cipher key encryption with variable key size and changes at varying intervals, preventing any possibility of leaked data or hacking.
Here are all the specs for the $899 SimpleShare.
