Yet Another Company Launches a “Button” Solution in an Attempt to Compete with ClickShare

BenQ’s new InstaShow WDC10 wireless presentation system is a button-based wireless sharing system for up to 16 users. Claiming compatibility with any OS and any hardware platform, InstaShow is designed to allow any participant, even a guest, to take control of the meeting and share content with the group. Completely hardware-based, InstaShow’s setup and connection include plugging a “puck” into the user’s HDMI or USB-C port on the device you want to share on a projector or monitor and tapping the InstaShow button.

We haven’t tested this box from BenQ, but, so far, the best alternative to ClickShare we’ve seen (as a systems product) is the Vivitek NovoConnect.

InstaShow is compatible with all mobile devices and operating systems and works with any display with an HDMI port. It also supports up to four different split screens.

The WDC10 portfolio shares images up to 1080p, and the latest model, the WDC10C, is designed for compatibility with the latest notebooks using the new USB-C connector. InstaShow buttons can be mixed and matched with either USB-C or HDMI models in the same room to accommodate any device. BenQ told rAVe that a new version, the WDC20, will be released in Q3 2019 (launched at InfoComm) and adds 4K output. It’s priced at $999 for WDC10 and $1,099 for WDC10C.

Here are the details.
