Benefits of Wireless Screen Sharing

There’s a reason why “seamless integration” is one of the most beloved phrases of those fluent in corporate jargon – it describes in two words the ultimate goal of any technology: to create a utopia in which anyone can connect from anywhere using any device without minor hiccups or major drama.

Although many advances in technology have touted seamless integration as a top selling point, few have paid it off as well as wireless screen sharing. Of course, seamless integration isn’t the only phrase that captures the magic that is wireless screen sharing. It’s also simple, cost-effective and easy-to-use, which leads to the attainment of even more desirable buzz-phrases, such as increased collaboration, greater efficiency and higher productivity. To see why we believe wireless screen sharing is not only buzzworthy, but living up to all the hype, check out our top three reasons you need it now.

#1:  No dongle. No problem.

Sharing screens is tough when there are strings attached, and today’s prevailing practice of ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) makes it even more problematic. For example, if you don’t have wireless screen sharing and your team uses a mix of tablets, mobile devices and laptops, then you’ll need a mix of Apple, Windows and Android-compatible cables on-hand to ensure everyone is able to share screens whenever they need to present.

In this scenario, there is almost always drama involving lost cables, the wrong cables, cables and ports with dodgy connections, or not enough cables to accommodate all of the meetings happening at one time. And let’s not forget the good people of IT, who are often called upon during ‘cable emergencies’ to hunt down the right cable for the right device, or to help folks work the TV input to ensure their screens are seen. It’s a waste of time, talent and energy, but it doesn’t have to be. Simply add WiFi to your conference, meeting and huddle rooms and you, too, can toss the jumbled snake-pile of cables taking up valuable real estate on your conference table and share screens like a pro.

#2: See eye to eye.

Remember when you were a kid and you’d go to the movies early to get a great seat, and then inevitably, one minute before the show starts, a giant with a beach-ball for a head would sit down in front of you blocking your view? The grown-up version of this experience happens every day for remote meeting participants, making their dream of working from home, or on-the-road, more like a nightmare.

When a presentation is literally plugged into the room, those who aren’t in the room can’t see it as well as those who are, and many times they can’t see it at all, which hinders their ability to participate and collaborate and enhances the opportunity for miscommunications and emotional disconnects from the topic at hand.

Fortunately, wireless screen sharing allows everyone in a meeting, whether on-site or off, to see what’s going on. You can see the screens of remote workers when they are presenting, and they can see your screen. It’s quick, easy, and dare we say it, seamless. Because wireless screen sharing fosters genuine connections, people are better able to understand one another, meetings are more efficient, collaboration is more productive, and no one gets frustrated or feels left out because they can’t see what everyone’s talking about.

#3: Keep the driver’s seat.

There’s an elaborate dance that takes place every time you switch seats with another driver, from adjusting the legroom, seat-back and side and rearview mirrors, to familiarizing yourself with the controls. If everyone’s anxious to go somewhere, the process can be a bit of a buzzkill.

Changing presenters using a wired system is equally awkward and time-consuming because you can’t take over the screen using your own device, you must switch devices with the presenter. Then, the dance begins. In the meantime, your meeting attendees are losing interest at the same rate of speed that your presentation is losing momentum. Switching devices in order to share screens is a move that’s cumbersome, not to mention unnecessary given that wireless screen sharing allows you to give screen control to anyone you wish, including remote attendees, with just one click. That’s right, one click to get your presentation in gear and get your show on the road.
