ScreenBeam Inc. released its latest firmware update Tuesday, now featuring new native Google Cast support. The Version 18.104.22.168 update will allow ScreenBeam 1100 users to wirelessly display over the network with the Google Cast function on these devices:
- All Android devices (whether Google Cast or Miracast)
- All Chromebook/ChromeOS devices (whether Intel-based or ARM-based)
- Windows 7 and pre-2013 macOS legacy devices, mirroring through Chrome browser
The firmware update also enhances guest network isolation as well as system and network security. To ensure guests cannot access the host network, ScreenBeam 1100 now allows guests, who are on the ScreenBeam Wi-Fi hotspot, to be isolated from any upstream network devices.
“Windows 7 devices still remain scattered within organizations and Chromebook Enterprise devices are successfully finding a niche in business,” said Scott La, director of PLM and support at ScreenBeam Inc. “We designed this firmware update to provide organizations universal device support for all employee and guest devices and eliminate connectivity issues so meetings can run smoothly and efficiently.”
In addition to the Google Cast support, the firmware update includes an enhancement to its video playback support for iOS/macOS native mirroring. When mirroring video content from the YouTube app or Safari browser, the ScreenBeam receiver will stream and playback the video directly instead of mirroring.
