With wireless presentation in classrooms becoming increasingly popular in today's hyper-connected environment, we saw a need in the Chromebook market and worked to fill this niche.
Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 16, 2016
wePresent has expanded the platforms it is accessible from with the launch of the MirrorOp app for Chromebook. This app provides full wireless presentation and screen mirroring functionality on all ChromeOS devices, in addition to Windows, Mac OS, iOS, and Android, and is currently available in the Google Play store. With the release of the MirrorOp Sender for Chromebooks and other ChromeOS computers, wePresent has become the first wireless presentation gateway to fully support Chromebooks.
The lower price point of Chromebook computers has caused the popularity of the operating system to grow, making it necessary for wePresent to grow as well. ChromeOS has become common in classrooms, huddle spaces and meeting rooms around the world, due to both its low price-point and versatility. "Because of the software download limitations of Chromebooks, users were prevented from being able to present their screen unless it was physically connected to a display or projector," says Eva Cannon, Marketing Director of wePresent's US office. "With wireless presentation in classrooms becoming increasingly popular in today's hyper-connected environment, we saw a need in the Chromebook market and worked to fill this niche. We are proud to be the first wireless presentation system to fully mirror the Chromebook desktop."
Support for Chromebook came bundled with the previous firmware update (v188.8.131.52), but development on the Chromebook application has been ongoing. wePresent first previewed Chromebook functionality at NCCE 2016 in Seattle, WA this February, to a crowd that was primarily education-focused. ChromeOS compatibility isn’t just important for the education markets either. According to most market share reports, B2B sales of ChromeOS notebooks have increased every year since 2013. A lower price point coupled with easy deployment mean these versatile notebooks have been gaining traction as an affordable enterprise solution.
The latest update to the wePresent WiPG-2000 firmware also brought with it a number of other feature upgrades, including iOS9 compatibility for iPad and iPhones through AirPlay. The upgraded firmware also decreased latency from the wePresent when streaming from AirPlay, added a QR code to facilitate a faster connection, and added the ability to customize the screensaver on individual wePresent units in order to better brand meeting spaces.
