key digital kd byod4khub

Key Digital introduced the KD-BYOD4KHub BYOD and BYOM wireless presentation and conferencing gateway, a wireless solution for conference and presentation spaces that enables users to bring their own device of any OS and present to a shared display while the hub receives the USB camera, mic and audio in the room for collaboration with local and remote video conference participants (think Barco ClickShare CX-50 Gen 2).

The KD-BYOD4KHub adds an HDMI input for direct input from a dedicated room computer or primary presenter laptop, dual HDMI outputs for mirrored or independent viewing on two connected displays/projectors and a capture feature to mirror the room’s main or sub display to share in videoconferencing software (Zoom, Teams, etc.) and completely immerse videoconference participants in multi-presenter meetings, huddles and brainstorming sessions. The KD-BYOD4KHub serves as central connection for USB cameras and audio sources. Audio from the casting device is de-embedded at the unit’s analog L/R audio connector for ease of integration with audio amplification and mixing systems. With CEC and RS-232 room display management, the KD-BYOD4KHub’s customizable home screen and digital signage mode can turn displays into branding canvases between meetings.

Up to five presenters may share content at the same time with an auto-adjusting screen layout, along with moderator management, annotation, and touchscreen/mouse control capabilities.

Here’s a video of the KD-BYOD4KHUB we shot at InfoComm 2024:

Users with Windows, Mac, Chrome, iOS or Android devices may wirelessly cast content via the KD-BYOD4KHub’s Wi-Fi network. The included KD-BYODFD auto-launching flash drive delivers plug-and-play casting with Windows and Mac OS. Additionally, users may follow the on-screen instructions to download the KDPlay+ app onto their device. KD-BYOD4KHub also boasts native support of Airplay from iOS devices, Chromecast from Chromebooks, and Miracast from Windows and Android OS.

Dual network ports enable the KD-BYOD4KHub to provide internet access via employee and guest network connections. This allows employees to access their network resources during internal meetings while maintaining network security when providing guests with meeting and internet access. The KD-BYOD4KHub may act as the Wireless Access Point or may be accessed by devices via a wireless or wired network connection in WiFi Client or LAN Connection modes. Four-level security includes casting / pairing pin and device-type permission options, AES-256 + RSA-1024 encryption.

The Key Digital KD-BYOD4KHub will be available for preorder in Q3, 2024 at an MSRP of $1541.00. (USD).
