Clearly taking aim at Barco’s ClickShare, Vivitek has announced two new additions to its NovoConnect Solution, a wireless collaboration system. Building on the NovoConnect, is the new LauncherPlus and NovoEnterprise, both aimed at more business applications.
The plug-and-play LauncherPlus ensures that meeting participants’ laptop computers wirelessly connect within seconds to the NovoEnterprise main unit. The LauncherPlus is a USB device that plugs directly into the laptop and thanks to its embedded WiFi, it streams laptop content effortlessly to the big screen. The LauncherPlus is especially convenient for visiting guests, or when colleagues from other offices are on site. Furthermore, as it is driver-free, no trace or residue is left on laptops after they disconnect.
Aimed at SME and corporate environments, NovoEnterprise has been designed to provide guests with an ad-hoc wireless connection. Thanks to NovoEnterprise’s standalone operation and external antenna, it provides a robust wireless connection, and prevents guests from accessing the corporate network, thus ensuring that network security is maintained.
High-performance connectivity is assured thanks to NovoEnterprise’s high-bandwidth 2T2R dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi. This delivers optimal standalone Wi-Fi performance, even when demand on the available bandwidth is high. This enhanced connectivity enables guests to mirror their Windows, Mac, iOS, Android and Chromebook devices to the big screen smoothly and effortlessly.
In combination, NovoEnterprise and LauncherPlus are ideal for meeting rooms where lots of external guests are expected; they are also very useful for hotels to facilitate their guests hiring a meeting room. Simple and easy to use with no training required for guests, it greatly reduces the burden on facility support.
