Now offering full mirroring capabilities for Apple's latest mobile operating system upgrade

In the BYOD environment today, we know how important it is for our users to be able to use all of the features on their devices," says Eva Cannon, Director of Marketing for wePresent's US office.

wePresent is proud to announce the second major firmware update for the WiPG-2000, version 2.0.8.9, which adds several exciting new features as well as a host of optimizations that provide a much smoother and enjoyable wePresent experience. This release adds exciting new capabilities to the wePresent line of BYOD technology.

Most prominently, the WiPG-2000 has added support for the latest generation of Apple’s operating systems. Full device mirroring has been possible via Apple AirPlay on previous releases of the WiPG-2000 firmware, but this release adds AirPlay support for iOS9, as well as the ability to use the wePresent as an extended display on El Capitan OS and additional iOS and OSX bug fixes. iOS users can expect a noticeably shortened latency, as well as smoother streaming for video and animations.

Extended display capabilities are also present for Windows 10 after this release, meaning the latest generation of PC tablets, such as the Surface Pro series of hybrid notebooks, will be able to connect and use the full capabilities of the WiPG-2000. Further SMART Screen support has been added, increasing the amount of SMART Screen devices compatible with the wireless presentation hardware.

The latest update also addresses many common issues that users have reported. Users experiencing the wePresent rebooting or losing power should now find those issues cleared after the WiPG-2000 has been upgraded to the latest firmware.

"In the BYOD environment today, we know how important it is for our users to be able to use all of the features on their devices," says Eva Cannon, Director of Marketing for wePresent's US office. "We really pushed to have this firmware address several updates because we believe our line of wireless presentation solutions is the best choice, and as the technology changes, so must we."

wePresent releases this firmware upgrade on the heels of a landmark year, which saw the WiPG-2000 earning three awards after InfoComm 2015, including Most Innovative Wireless Product of the Year from rAVe Publications, and Best of Show awards from both AV Technology and Sound and Video Contractor magazines. 2015 also saw the revelation of the newest member of the wePresent family, the SharePod, designed to make connecting to the wePresent as easy as plugging in a cable to any source with an HDMI output. This will allow devices such as document cameras, DVD players, and guest laptops to access all of the same great features of the wePresent.

Whether in a classroom or a board room, wireless presentation allows an unprecedented level of collaboration with the audience, making presentations less static and more effective. wePresent offers its users a host of features and is a leader in the field of BYOD-capable technology.
