Minneapolis, Minn. – Williams AV has upped the ante with its newly enhanced Presenter HUBand Audio Presenter HUB wireless presentation systems.
The Presenter HUB is a wireless video hub designed to simplify connecting wireless devices such as laptops, tablets and mobile phones to the video equipment in your meeting room by using Airplay®, Google Chromecast and Miracast™. The Presenter HUB features a HDMI 4K output for connecting to your room display, and five 3.0 UBS ports, an HDMI input, two Comm ports and one ethernet network port for connecting everything else in your room.
The Presenter HUB performs as a wireless video hub connecting all of the video equipment in the room to the wireless devices in the room. Switching between multiple presenters is as easy as tapping a connect button and letting the next presenter show what’s on their device. Additional Presenter tools include annotation and highlighting capabilities on any live video source, as well as providing a digital whiteboard on demand. For added mobility, its iOS and Android apps allow you to stroll the room and control your computer’s presentation from your device – all while providing high-quality video to your display. With two-way display stream capabilities, you can take anything connected to the Presenter HUB and stream it into such software applications as Zoom®, Skype™ and GoToMeeting™. Use the camera in your device for local video, or plug in a USB room camera for complete room coverage.
The Audio Presenter HUB incorporates all the features of the Presenter HUB – then cleverly adds audio to the mix, delivering industry first, truly wireless, audio + video connectivity. The Audio Presenter HUB can wirelessly connect all computers, tablets and smartphones to the installed audio and video systems in the room. Combine a conference call with a PowerPoint simply by connecting your phone to the Bluetooth (via the included B-WAP Bluetooth wireless access point) and wirelessly casting your laptop to the room display.
The advanced audio system in the Audio Presenter HUB features a professional mixer with Bluetooth. The integrated mixer includes four inputs (two mic/two line), two line outputs and two 25-watt amplifiers. Acoustic Echo Cancellation ensures echo-free conference calls. The patent-pending design allows for integration of the B-WAP into the ceiling above your workspace, allowing for connection of Bluetooth devices within a 100-foot range, and minimizing distance limitations and signal blockage.
“Today’s meeting rooms are no longer just about connecting audio and video equipment in a room,” says Rob Sheeley, president and CEO of Williams AV. “They are equally about connecting your digital devices. Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Airplay, Chromecast and Miraplay are digital connections that also need to be addressed in a room design. The Presenter HUB and Audio Presenter HUB are designed to allow integration of your AV components and your digital devices into one common system. This architecture enables you to leverage the professional pro audio and video systems in the room with any of your mobile devices. With our two-way video feature and Bluetooth audio, doing a wireless video conference has never been easier.”
