ViewSonic Corp launched the ViewBoard Cast Button, a brand-new accessory of ViewSonic’s wireless presentation display (WPD) solution — think: ClickShare button. The ViewBoard Cast Button is designed to make wireless multiscreen collaboration simpler. Once a one-time setup is completed by pairing the Button to ViewSonic’s ViewBoard interactive displays or commercial displays then, all users need to do is plug the Button into a laptop to send their video to the display. The Button supports a variety of operating systems including Windows/Mac/Chrome OS and there are two types of ViewBoard Cast Buttons available which support HDMI and USB-C respectively. Both can be powered by laptop without any battery.
Keeping security in mind, the ViewBoard Cast Button’s app-free design eliminates potential security and privacy risks by removing any network connection or app installation.
