The solution plugs directly into an HDMI port, adding wireless presentation capabilities to compatible displays and projectors. The stick is also compatible for use with non-NEC products.

Designed to work with multiple device platforms, the MultiPresenter supports workplace Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiatives. It allows users to simultaneously collaborate and deliver wireless presentations from their personal devices, without the need for custom cabling or restrictions on support corporate devices.

From offices to classrooms, users can connect any personal Windows, OSx, Android or iOS device running the companion sender app to the MultiPresenter wirelessly. The app is free and available for download via the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Users pair securely via a PIN in the app to instantly present and share content with other participants. The solution also allows to connect several mobile devices at once to one MultiPresenter as well as to connect to several displays from one device.

With the MultiPresenter, all wirelessly connected devices can mirror each other’s screen and share content while switching presenter on-the-fly,enhancing productivity and teamwork. Additionally, the stick can be powered through the USB port and doesn’t require an independent power supply or external adaptor.

Here are all the specifics.
