Bluetooth Discovery for Apple Devices and Virtual LAN Support
We have just released one of our most significant firmware updates yet. Apple devices with Bluetooth capability can now effortlessly find and connect to ScreenBeam 1100 Plus and 1 000 EDU receivers. This eliminates the need for supporting Apple’s Bonjour protocol, reducing network overhead and simplifying device lists. With proximity-based discovery, only devices within range will be visible. You can enable this feature through the receiver’s Local Management Interface (LMI) or remotely via ScreenBeam CMS Enterprise.
For networks that require managed network broadcast, particularly in data and media-intensive bandwidth environments, ScreenBeam 1000 series receivers now support VLAN tagging. This feature enables seamless integration into VLAN networks and supports up to three VLANs. Simply enable this feature through the receiver’s LMI or remotely via ScreenBeam CMS Enterprise.
Case study – Flint Cultural Center Academy
Our newest case study highlights the success story of the Flint Cultural Center Academy (FCCA) in Michigan. The FCCA is a technology-forward K-8 charter school that deployed the ScreenBeam 1000 EDU with Classroom Commander classroom orchestration and 1100 Plus devices throughout the campus improve classroom interactions and enrich the learning environment by addressing a wide array of use cases.
At ISE 2023 in Barcelona, Yamaha and ScreenBeam announced our partnership integrating Yamaha’s ADECIA Microphone and Speaker Solution with ScreenBeam’s 1100Plus. Now users gain a turnkey wireless collaboration solution with the highest quality audio equipment and wireless Bring Your Own Meeting (BYOM) experience. Reach out to your ScreenBeam rep (see map below) or Yamaha rep to learn more. We would love to hear from you!
