Extron Introduces New Wireless Collaboration Gateway
Extron Electronics has introduced the ShareLink 200 wireless collaboration gateway, designed to enable students and teachers to share content to a central screen from their personal devices. The gateway can help users create a standalone wireless presentation system or to add wireless capabilities to a variety of wired AV presentation designs.
ShareLink 200 supports Windows and OS X computers as well as Apple and Android smartphones and tablets. It can display presentations, images and documents from up to four different personal devices at once. ShareLink technology also allows a Windows or OS X computer to communicate with multiple ShareLink 200 units on a network to send the same content to as many as four displays. The WebShare function enables users to send content over the network to a Web browser on each student’s personal device.
The gateway’s collaboration mode lets any user share materials and control a presentation. In moderator mode, only approved content can be displayed.
ShareLink 200’s other features include the following:
- an integrated wireless access point;
- power over Ethernet;
- HDMI and VGA video outputs; and
- antennas mounted on the front panel.
