Easy, Secure and Flexible Collaboration
New collaboration features allow a room full of computers or wireless devices to connect to a single display. Four screens can be shown simultaneously. LiteShow III can be used in three secure configurations:
Wireless display only
Wireless display and internet connection
Wireless display, internet and secure network access
When a projector or other display with LiteShow III is connected to a network, computers on the network can connect to the LiteShow III enabled display to share visual information just like sending documents to a network printer. In addition, meeting guests can collaborate immediately by using the LiteShow III USB drive to easily make a direct wireless connection to the display without installing software.
Wirelessly Display High-Quality HD Video
Videos are a huge part of knowledge sharing in today’s business and education environments, however sharing them wirelessly has been hindered by interruptions or choppy playback. LiteShow III provides fast on-board video decoding, which does the heavy-lifting instead of the presenter’s computer. This produces fast and clean display of HD video and audio regardless of connection speed or the computer’s processing power.
