Vivitek Releases V 3.1 of NovoConect Collaboration Software

So far, the Vivitek NovoConnect is the top competitor to the Barco ClickShare for a button-based wireless collaboration system. Vivitek also just released version 3.1 of its software, adding what it’s calling Quad View screen capability allowing four inputs to be wirelessly-streamed to one screen in nearly any layout format — not just a 2×2 wall configuration — including Apple AirPlay and GoogleCast capability.

In addition, new features like AES-256 security protocol compatibility, a software interface that is not only faster to download for their Launcher buttons to connect but also a better UX and a configurable sleep-mode timer.

Other features include something the company calls AirNote (UI flow includes on-off control, current user display, user designation, etc.), Full on-screen mirroring in iOS or Android, slideshows can now be used in full-screen mode and no WiFi password is required.

Go here or search for Vivitek in the Chrome Web Store App Store, or Google Play Store and get the update for free.
