Elmo Unveils New Point-to-Multipoint Content Delivery System
Elmo USA, a developer of imaging
products for schools, has unveiled its new point-to-multipoint content delivery
system, Elmo P2MP, at the InfoComm 2014
show taking place in Las Vegas, NV from June 18 to 21.
The Elmo P2MP is designed for use in classrooms and meeting rooms. It
connects through a hub to an Internet-connected host computer, and it can
distribute content wirelessly from the host computer to up to 40 devices in the
room. Those receiving devices can be Macs, PCs running Windows 7 or 8,
Chromebooks, or smartphones or tablets running iOS or Android. In order to
receive the distributed content, the devices must run the P2MP app to connect to
the Elmo P2MP's private, secure network. Once connected, they can receive any
content from the host computer, including content from external devices or
sources connected to the host computer, such as document cameras or Internet
According to the company, "the ELMO P2MP gives educators and presenters
complete control of the content displayed on attendee's devices." Devices
connected to the Elmo P2MP's private network can't view other content unless
they leave the private network, and the host computer is notified when a device
leaves that network.
Elmo USA is demonstrating the Elmo P2MP at the InfoComm 2014 show in booth
