BenQ's InstaShow WDC10 wireless presentation system eliminates the need for attendees to download an app in order to share the screen.
While the app works at the time, you likely never use it again. But it often sits on your device anyway, leaving the door open for hackers, malware, and security problems down the road. Even legitimate apps, says BenQ, can become outdates and vulnerable because your system administrator doesn't know you installed it.
The WDC10 does not require any meeting software apps. Rather, simple push a button and up to 16 users can share content seamlessly and in high-quality video from any notebook - even the latest models equipped with USB-C - without cables, connectors, or drivers.
InstaShow wirelessly connects a user's computer to a central display or projector without requiring driver installation or compatibility with any OS or hardware platform. With InstaShow, any participant, even a guest, can automatically take control of the meeting and share content with the group without slowing down the presentation, disrupting the flow of conversation, and without downloading yet another app that can be a potential point of entry from unwanted hackers. Most systems, adds BenQ, max out at eight input sources, while the InstaShow has 16.
Completely hardware-based and user-friendly, InstaShow's setup and connection are as fast and simple as plugging the button into the user's HDMI or USB-C port and tapping it.
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 mix and match with either USB-C or HDMI models in the same room to accommodate any device. A new version, the WDC20, will be released in Q4 2019 and adds 4K support to transmit ultra-high-quality, UHD content.
The WDC10 is US$999 and the WDC10C is US$1,099.
