As technology becomes more mobile, companies are responding to the needs of educators and students who want flexible and wireless presentation options.

Extron Electronics has started shipping the ShareLink 200 Wireless Collaboration Gateway, which enables anyone to present content from a personal device. Supported devices include Windows and OS X computers, as well as Apple and Android smartphones and tablets.

ShareLink technology provides simultaneous display of presentations, images, documents, and other content from up to four different personal devices, eliminating the need to constantly change sources during a session.

Content from a single device shows full screen, and content from multiple devices appears simultaneously in four windows on the display. Any user can share content and control the presentation when it is set to collaboration mode. A moderator mode ensures only approved content is displayed.
