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.

Leadership in Wireless Display

"Intel® Core™ vPro™ processors with Intel® Pro WiDi, coupled with the new Actiontec ScreenBeam 950 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.
