wePresent is proud to announce the second major firmware update for the WiPG-2000, version 18.104.22.168, which adds several exciting new features, as well as a host of optimizations that provide a much smoother and enjoyable wePresent experience.
Most prominently, the WiPG-2000 has added support for the latest generation of Apple’s operating systems. Full device mirroring ha been possible via Apple AirPlay on previous releases of the WiPG-2000 firmware, but this release adds support for iOS 9, as well as the ability to use the wePresent as an extended display on El Capitan, along with assorted other iOS and OSX bugfixes. 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. Mirroring your wePresent unit through a SMART Screen device will give you touch control for connected devices, and that functionality now works on the full line of SMART Screen products.
The latest firmware update also grants the ability to implement a customized screensaver to your wePresent, featuring your company’s logo or other artwork, as well as a number of bug fixes and security upgrades to the WiPG-2000 itself. The latest update also addresses many common issues that users have reported. Users experiencing the wePresent rebooting or losing power should, by all reports, find those issues cleared up after the WiPG-2000 has been upgraded to the latest firmware.
wePresent releases this firmware upgrade on the heels of a landmark year for our startup, 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, the first device of its kind, designed to make connecting to the wePresent as easy as plugging in an HDMI cable, as well as the first to begin bringing wired devices into the wireless presentation fold. The SharePod was released in February 2016, and is available from any of wePresents family of resellers and integrators.
The wePresent family is proud to bring you the best in wireless presentation technology, and hopes to be your wireless solution in the new year. Whether in a classroom or a board room, wireless presentation allows an unprecedented level of collaboration with your audience, making your presentations less static, and more effective.
