The new InstaShow S model adds even more options to the platform, allowing laptop users to share content while supporting a wider range of devices. For mobile devices, participants can either connect an InstaShow S button, or wirelessly connect using Apple Airplay, Miracast, or the new BenQ InstaShare app, available for Android and iOS. With InstaShow S, users can smoothly share ideas or stream full HD 1080p video and 16-bit stereo audio wirelessly to an HDMI-equipped display device without limitations.
The new S model is designed to support up to 32 participants or input sources at a time, replacing the cost of standalone wired HDMI switchers and simplifying complex installations. The system’s split-screen mode allows up to four users or sources to be shared to the screen simultaneously. The touch-back feature gives presenters the ability to control their laptop applications directly from an IFP. Moreover, when paired with an IFP, the split-screen mode and touch-back feature enable up to four laptops or devices to be controlled directly from the display. Like the rest of the InstaShow family, it is fully interoperable with any operating system or hardware platform while ensuring absolute data security through WPA2-PSK protection with AES 128-bit encryption.
InstaShow S can maintain stable wireless connections even in Wi-Fi environments. Equipped with Wi-Fi 802.11 ac/n for transfer speeds of up to 700Mbps, the S model facilitates easy and smooth sharing of presentations, pictures, documents, and video. The InstaShow S starter kit comes complete with a receiver, two HDMI transmitter buttons, and tabletop button holder. Additional USB-C buttons will be available later this year. IT managers can also use the BenQ device management software (DMS) solution to maintain and remotely configure InstaShow units.
