The Differences Between Wireless Display

and Wireless Presentation


Share it with your networks


Wireless display and wireless presentation display are often used interchangeably. Are they the same thing? Almost. There is a slight difference if you want to get technical about the terminology.

First, let’s define the two terms:

Wireless display: Wireless display technology is essentially a standard that allows for wireless mirroring of the user device screen to the room display. A wireless connection untethers presenters to move freely around the room while sharing content.

Wireless presentation: Wireless presentation – or wireless presentation solutions (WPS) – refers to hardware products that provide wireless sharing in meeting spaces and classrooms. ScreenBeam 1100 Plus is a WPS that eliminates cables, adapters and apps making it effortless to share and collaborate over content.

Whichever term you use, you are using the same wireless display technology to accomplish the same goal: simplify setup and operation of sharing your screen with others.

How to Make the Most of Wireless Presentation

The right wireless presentation is great for your business only if it checks all these boxes:

  • Creates a standards-based wireless connection between the source device and the room display or projector that doesn’t require an app or dongle.
  • Makes it effortless for users to connect. Users are more willing to use new technology when it’s easy to use.
  • Makes it easy for both employee and guest devices to connect simultaneously to guest and company networks without compromising security.
  • Provides a flawless wireless connection so users have a great experience.
  • Allows instant switching of presenters without interrupting the presentation.
  • Allows for IT teams to manage and configure devices remotely over the network instead of manually troubleshooting on-site.

Some of the best wireless presentation use cases are:

  • Boardrooms
  • Classrooms
  • Conference rooms
  • Huddle rooms
  • Lecture halls
  • Meeting rooms
  • Stand up meetings
  • Training rooms
  • Office communication
    (note: ScreenBeam includes integrated digital signage that can be used as a communication hub when displays are not in use)

Business and education facilities often have a dense wireless environment with multiple access points with employees trying to connect at once. Because of this congestion, you need a solution that is designed to cut through the noise and that works in the space you are in.
