The changes on the new WiPG-1600 show that once again we are listening to our customers.

Barco announces the upgrade of the wePresent WiPG-1600 wireless presentation and collaboration system. This model adds several sought-after features to the meeting and learning experience and gives customers more networking flexibility at the mid-range price point.

Adding wireless connections
While the previous version of WiPG-1600 needed to connect to an existing IT network through its onboard LAN port, the new WiPG-1600 supports both wired and wireless connections. By allowing users to switch among different networking solutions (wired
LAN, wireless LAN, wired LAN + wireless LAN) to meet different facility needs, the
WiPG-1600 is positioned as the best-in-class choice for wireless collaboration.

Smart collaboration is key
Extra networking solutions are not the only bonus. The new WiPG-1600 also adds a great number of smart and considerate features that would address different needs in an array of presentation/collaboration scenarios. For example, on-screen annotation tools and virtual whiteboard enable the presenter to highlight the key points or to elaborate on the initial ideas during presentation. 1-to-many distribution makes it possible for the same content to be displayed on up to four separate screens simultaneously.
The USB document viewer/media player facilitates users to present without any
PC/Mac/mobile devices, and power over Ethernet (POE) allows for more flexible device placement as no power adapter is required. Video streaming avoids frozen screens and thus ensures seamless sharing.

Keep the customer top-of-mind
“The changes on the new WiPG-1600 show that once again we are listening to our customers. The addition of POE, built in annotation and standalone WIFI options at this price are all in line with the feedback from schools and businesses around the globe.” states Michael Peveler, Director of Sales, Learning Experience for Barco.

These new features, together with enhanced wireless security and the existing strong cross-platform capability (Windows, MacOS, Chrome OS, Android, iOS as well as Air-Play support), promise to take the presentation/collaboration experience to a new level.
