ScreenBeam Classroom Commander

Wireless Orchestration for Windows 10 Classrooms.

Brochure|Data Sheet|Tech Specs|License Info


Interactive learning thrives in the modern classroom. ScreenBeam Classroom Commander is an easy-to-use orchestration system for Windows 10 classrooms, that also delivers classroom agility.

By combining wireless display connectivity with premium orchestration functionality, ScreenBeam Classroom Commander improves lesson flow and collaboration by untethering teachers from the classroom display and enabling classroom agility. Now teachers can move freely and interact with students without interrupting instruction. Constructive feedback is made easy with support of Windows Ink and touchback, allowing teachers to annotate directly onto a student screen from the classroom display—even when student devices are not natively touch-enabled.

Empowering businesses and educators to achieve.


Classroom Agility Enables Proximity Control

Untether teachers to move and interact with the lesson being displayed, making it easy to monitor student reaction and understanding. By enabling proximity control teachers can identify issues quickly, and help off-task students refocus. With teacher permission, students show their work right from their desks or untether from the system and present live at the classroom display. And it’s all done quickly and easily, so teachers make the most of valuable instructional time.

Student Device Management Made Easy

View student screens and active applications in real time, or preview a student screen before sharing to ensure the content is appropriate for the class. Whether a single student is distracted, or the entire classroom needs to focus, teachers can blank an individual student or all screens instantly for “eyes up front.” Guided learning is made easier when teachers can drive URLs and apps across all student screens, and monitor student progress with the ability to private message single students or groups.

Interactive Learning Enhances Student Outcome

Provide constructive feedback using touchback and Windows Ink. Teachers can annotate comments and questions directly onto the student screen from the classroom display—even when student devices are not touch-enabled. Engage students by supplementing core curriculum with interactive online content and digital learning materials. Popular apps such as Skype in the Classroom, OneNote, FluidMath and LifeLiqe are easier to implement without the constraints of wires.

Industry Standard for Wireless Display

ScreenBeam solutions are used as the validation platform for wireless display functionality by companies like Microsoft, Intel, and leading PC OEM and device companies. Actiontec is Microsoft’s lead partner for wireless display and worked with Microsoft to develop wireless display capabilities in Windows 10/8.1. ScreenBeam is an official development partner for Windows 10 and is deployed in thousands of Microsoft campus conference rooms across the globe.

Because of Actiontec’s deep roots as the industry leader, and our ongoing investment in supporting industry device manufacturers, you can be assured that you’re deploying the most broadly compatible, feature rich wireless display platform.
