The Wireless VPS III offers the ultimate in computer presentation sharing. If you have a meeting room with a VGA projector and you want a roomful of people to have a simple way to share their screens with others, then this affordable, plug-and-play receiver is your solution.
This latest version of the popular Wi-FI receiver not only supports presentation sharing through 4-to-1 split-screen and 1-to-4 projection, it also provides 802.11n Wi-Fi support—delivering up to five times the throughput and greater range of earlier Wi-Fi technology. The 802.11b/g/n compatibility means it can communicate with the latest mobile devices, too.
How it works.
The Wireless VPS III plugs into a projector or any display device with a VGA port. Wallmountable, it functions as both a wireless receiver and an 802.11b/g/n access point, enabling as many as 254 laptop or other Wi-Fi users to log in and display their computer screen video from hundreds of feet away*. The system's application software captures the images and sends them through 2.4-GHz radio waves to the receiver for output.
In standard Presentation Mode, meeting participants can project their computer screens. They can launch PowerPoint® Viewer or another application or open any file (such as a Word document or JPG image), and it will be projected wirelessly to the Wireless VPS III for overhead display.
It also has a Video Mode, through which users can choose a video or audio file from their computers for playing for an entire room**.
Plug and show.
With the accompanying Plug & Show USB token, wireless presentation becomes easy for all your meeting participants. Just link your PC or laptop to the Wireless VPS III through a WLAN or an Ethernet connection, plug the token into a USB port, and in seconds, your screen will be wirelessly projected to the projector and, in turn, onto an overhead screen seen by the entire room.
4-to-1 split-screen projection.
With this 4-to-1 split-screen feature, the Wireless VPS III displays up to four user screens through a projector at the same time. The individual screens are shown in quadrants, which makes it great for education and training applications where multiple users can compare work and share information. Just what you need to enhance meeting productivity.
Plus 1-to-4 screen projection.
Because the system supports 1-to-4 screen projection, an individual user can project his or her screen on four separate screens at the same time (four Wireless VPS III units are required). This feature supports both standard PC Presentation mode and Video Mode. This is particularly ideal for sharing information among users in different meeting rooms or classrooms.
PDA wireless projection.
You don't need a laptop or desktop computer to link to the Wireless VPS III. Simply use your handheld PDA/Windows Mobile device to browse to the receiver through Wi-Fi and join the presentation. You can project photos stored on your phone to the big screen, run a photo slideshow, show videos in .mpeg or .wmv9 format, or play MP3 music files. Images and videos will be scaled for playing large on the big screen automatically.
You control conference participants.
The Wireless VPS III's conference control function helps you moderate a conference. You control the order of projection from connected users' PCs or devices, as well as assign quadrants to each presenter during a 4-to-1 split-screen session and, in 1-to-4 setups, which users get to have their PC video displayed on which screen.
Simple, Web-based control interface.
The Web-based administrative tool makes it simple for an administrator to control the entire presentation. The interface has clear headings for conference participants, and with a touch of a button, you decide the sequence and order of conference presenters. What's more, it features a user-friendly SNMP application. Through it, you can configure and manage device settings on multiple Wireless VPS III receivers.
Magnifier feature for enlarging images.
The Wireless VPS III has a magnifier feature for a codec-free video clip watching experience. By dragging and dropping the video into the magnifier capture region, you'll be able to watch the video on a big screen for the best experience.
Macintosh® wireless projection.
The Wireless VPS III supports Mac® computers connected to a client and projected wirelessly. By launching the Mac client software that's stored in the accompanying USB token, the system enables Mac users to use the wireless presentation feature. With the III version update, Mac projection speed is up to five times as fast as the earlier version.
Works as a wireless access point, too.
The Wireless VPS III can also be used as a wireless access point, so you and a roomful of users can access content on the Internet or a wireless LAN. Wi-Fi AP Client Mode also makes it easy to communicate with other access points in your wireless enterprise. Or, through its RJ-45 port, you can link the receiver to a wired LAN.
Remote desktop function.
Have greater mobility when presenting at a podium or anywhere in a meeting room. The Remote Desktop function enables you to control a presentation from a wireless USB mouse/keyboard or to toggle between slides in a presentation using a USB wireless clicker. Just plug the receiver for your mouse/keyboard or clicker into the USB HID port on the front of the Wireless VPS III unit.
Great for high-security environments.
The Wireless VPS III features session login and WEP/WPA key security, and because it gives you the ability to control which participants can link to your wired or wireless network, the technology is great for conference or training rooms in high-security applications. You are the gatekeeper for all users. For instance, you can allow a visitor to run a PowerPoint presentation in your conference room without having any access to your WLAN. Or you can allow that visitor just Internet access.
Autoconfiguring network setup.
When you connect the Wireless VPS III to a LAN that already has a DHCP server present, the receiver takes an IP address assigned to it by the server. But when the Wireless VPS III is connected to a LAN that does not have a DHCP server, the receiver becomes the DHCP server in the network.
* Under optimum conditions, depending on the environment.
** Quality of video playback may vary. Some buffering may occur. The Wireless VPS III is designed primarily to be a wireless presentation sharing device, not a wireless video streaming device.
