Actiontec Launches the First Enterprise-grade Wireless Display Solution
ScreenBeam Enterprise Edition delivers complete wireless display capabilities — modernizing connectivity while uniquely facilitating deployment and management
Sunnyvale, California, September 29, 2015 — Actiontec Electronics today announced the launch of ScreenBeam Enterprise Edition, enabling “swipe to connect” wireless display capabilities in large-scale enterprise deployments. It is the first line of wireless display receivers designed specifically to meet the demanding needs of enterprise environments—supporting dual-band 802.11ac, enterprise-level security, BYOD, centralized IT management, and Intel Pro WiDi. ScreenBeam Enterprise Edition redefines what’s possible in today’s modern conference room.
ScreenBeam’s wireless display technology modernizes the conference room—improving efficiency, flow, and productivity with a wire-free zone that removes the complexity and clutter of cables and adapters. With ScreenBeam, users simply swipe to connect to displays and projectors enabling them to share presentations and other content from their compatible laptop, smartphone, or tablet, wirelessly.
With wireless display, anyone in the room can display their content without the need for special adapters or proximity to the projector. ScreenBeam makes it easy to beam content to the display, manage presentation flow, and keep presentations and meetings moving without interruption.
ScreenBeam Enterprise CMS
With its optional Central Management System (CMS), ScreenBeam is the first wireless display solution that truly meets the demands of enterprise deployment and management. It enables remote provisioning, troubleshooting, and monitoring. IT managers now can apply global policies, configure security settings, and update the firmware on thousands of devices spread across multiple sites from a central location.
CMS allows companies to scale out deployments while protecting their investment in devices and infrastructure by enabling simple firmware updates to accommodate new hardware and software. It’s critical for large and mid-sized deployments where IT cannot physically visit hundreds of conference rooms to service or provision devices in the field.
Recently, MESA Public Schools, Arizona’s largest unified school district, deployed more than 3,600 ScreenBeam receivers throughout its schools using ScreenBeam CMS. Find out more about MESA and ScreenBeam here.
Leadership in Wireless Display
“Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors with Intel® Pro WiDi, coupled with the new Actiontec ScreenBeam 950P Wireless Display receiver delivers business a wireless display solution that makes every presentation a cable-free experience. The combination delivers the ease and convenience of wireless display with the security and manageability that businesses demand,” said Tom Garrison, vice president and General Manager of Intel’s Business Client Platforms.
Actiontec has joined with Intel in developing the industry’s leading wireless display solutions. Actiontec’s ScreenBeam platform is the de facto validation platform used by Intel, Microsoft, and major PC OEM companies to test their devices’ wireless display functionality.
Actiontec’s ScreenBeam Enterprise Edition delivers the highest levels of performance, security, manageability and reliability. The ScreenBeam Enterprise Edition also supports the latest Intel Pro WiDi features, making it the go-to platform for many enterprise customers.
“We believe that wireless display is the future for every conference room, meeting space, and collaboration area in the enterprise. It not only enables a new level of connectivity, but also ultimately conserves one of its most valuable resources: time. The minutes saved in each meeting—by connecting more efficiently and effectively—multiplied by all of a company’s meetings and employees equate to significant time savings returned to the enterprise. ScreenBeam is an essential tool for today’s modern businesses,” said Dean Chang, Actiontec CEO.
About ScreenBeam Enterprise Edition
ScreenBeam Enterprise Edition consists of two models to meet the needs of any business: 950 and 950P (featuring Intel Pro WiDi).
ScreenBeam Enterprise Edition 950
This fully-integrated, enterprise-class wireless display platform includes 802.11ac and 802.11n dual radios, Ethernet, and HDMI. VGA In and VGA Out interfaces provide a connection for legacy, non-wireless devices. Extensive mounting and placement options allow IT to mount the receiver to ceilings, tables, or hidden locations as needed. ScreenBeam Enterprise Edition 950 can be centrally managed through the optional CMS, and a free local management console is included for smaller deployments where centralized management is not necessary.
ScreenBeam Enterprise Edition 950 offers broad device compatibility, working with millions of existing devices including Microsoft Windows 7, 8, 8.1, and 10; Android/Wi-Fi Miracast devices; and Intel WiDi laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
ScreenBeam Enterprise Edition 950P
ScreenBeam Enterprise Edition 950P offers all the functionality of the 950, while also adding support for Intel Pro WiDi. This solution is designed specifically for those enterprises and organizations that are deploying end user devices with Intel Pro WiDi. The Enterprise Edition 950P offers the highest level of wireless display performance, security, and user experience with support for Intel specific features such as Pro WiDi managed meetings and privacy screens.
ScreenBeam Enterprise Edition 950P requires availability of Intel Pro WiDi on client devices, or the optional use of ScreenBeam USB Transmitter.
