The Extron ShareLink 250 Series Wireless Collaboration Gateway enables anyone to present content from a laptop, smartphone, or tablet on a display, transforming any meeting room into a collaboration space. ShareLink„¢ technology supports simultaneous display of slides, documents, graphs, and photos from up to four devices without needing a cable. It is compatible with Windows® and OS X® computers as well as Apple® and Android® smartphones and tablets. It also includes a moderator mode to ensure only approved content is displayed. In spaces with sight line concerns, slides can be viewed on a personal device via a Web browser. The professional capabilities of the ShareLink 250 Series provide easy integration of mobile devices into meeting and huddle rooms, interactive collaborative spaces, and larger presentation environments.

Share Content Wirelessly

Designed for Bring Your Own Device ? BYOD environments, the gateway is available in two models. The ShareLink 250 W model includes an integrated, dual band wireless access point - WAP. Users connect directly to the ShareLink 250 W via a Wi?Fi connection. A Gigabit Ethernet port provides a high?speed network connection. The ShareLink 250 W is ideal for creating a stand-alone wireless collaboration and presentation system or adding wireless capabilities to a more traditional wired solution.

The ShareLink 200 N does not include a WAP, and works in concert with a facility's existing wireless networks. Users connect to the room"™s WAP via a Wi?Fi connection to access the ShareLink 200 N. This network?only version includes a Gigabit Ethernet port for a high?speed connection and provides the same user experience as the wireless model.

Video from a single personal device is shown full screen or in one of four windows. When multiple devices are connected, up to four sources are displayed simultaneously to enhance collaboration. A variety of content types can be shared, including a simple image, document, or slide show presentation. The MirrorOp® for Extron ShareLink„¢ app enables wireless connection of a mobile device via the Wi?Fi network. This application is free and available for download from the iTunes® App Store or Google Play®.

Windows or OS X computers access the ShareLink 250 Series via a wired or wireless network connection. The user enters the IP address of the ShareLink 250 Series unit into a Web browser, and then follows the instructions to run or install the ShareLink software. The software is available in two versions: Lite and Pro. The Lite version is a runtime application that can be used without installation, alleviating the need for users to have administrative access. The Pro version requires installation but enables video sharing and access to the advanced settings. Alternatively, the user can run the client application directly from a USB flash drive without installing software onto the computer. The application enables the sharing of images, documents, and presentations, as well as full?motion video at 30 fps.

The ShareLink 250 Series includes a bracket for easy mounting on a wall. It also can be mounted in a rack, using an optional Extron rack-shelf kit. For discreet in?room installation, the enclosure is compatible with a wide variety of Extron furniture and under-desk mounting kits as well.

Ideal for Collaboration

The default collaboration mode allows any attendee to easily send content to the display and control the presentation. This can enhance interaction during brainstorming sessions, team meetings, group studies, and other collaborative environments.

Moderated Presentation

ShareLink 250 Series offers a moderator mode that enables centralized control over device access and presentation. The moderator decides which users can access the display and how the content is presented, ensuring only approved content is displayed. This mode is ideal for educational environments, allowing the instructor to have complete control of the presentation on the main classroom display.

Share Content Across Multiple Displays

The ShareLink 250 Series includes the capability to enable a Windows or OS X computer to communicate with multiple ShareLink 250 Series units on a network. The technology allows a computer to send the same content to as many as four displays. This is useful for larger spaces with multiple displays or adjacent rooms used for overflow.

Enables a Secure Connection

The ShareLink 250 Series features security authentication consisting of randomly generated or user-defined security codes to ensure only approved devices can share content. The 802.11b/g/n wireless access point in the ShareLink 250 W lets users share content via mobile devices, while the wired Ethernet connection provides connections for the internal customer network. This configuration maintains the security of the private network while allowing guests access to the public network.

Convenience of Power over Ethernet

Each ShareLink 250 Series unit can be powered locally using the included power supply or remotely over the Ethernet connection. By using Power over Ethernet - PoE, only one network cable is needed in order to accommodate data and power requirements. This streamlines the installation and lowers labor costs, especially when used as an enterprise-class collaborative solution.

Welcome Screen

Upon power up and initialization, the ShareLink 250 Series displays the welcome screen on the main presentation display. The upper portion of the screen includes a graphic with simple instructions for connecting personal devices to the system. It enables users to quickly connect and share content from laptop or desktop computers as well as mobile phones and tablets. It can easily be customized to meet the needs of an organization, such as displaying a corporate or university logo or other image.

The lower portion of the welcome screen provides important information for accessing the system, including the IP address, Wi?Fi name or SSID, and the security code. It also includes a tools menu to enable presenting content directly from a USB flash drive, using the display as an interactive whiteboard, or resizing the display.

iOS Mirroring and Mobile App

For content sharing from a smartphone or tablet, the ShareLink 250 Series will support mirroring of your iOS device from the iPad or iPhone Control Center. A ShareLink 250 Series gateway, will appear in the AirPlay list just like other Apple devices via firmware update coming soon. For Android devices, and iOS devices where annotation may be needed, the MirrorOp for Extron ShareLink app enables wireless connection of the mobile device. Dropbox®, Google Drive„¢, iCloud®, and OneDrive„¢ integration within the app provides easy access to content stored in the cloud. The app is free and available for download from the iTunes® App Store or Google Play®.

Presentation from a USB Flash Drive

An easy-to-use on-screen display enables content selection and playback from a USB flash drive. The USB flash drive, along with a mouse or keyboard, is plugged directly into any of the three USB ports on the ShareLink 250 Series unit. The USB Player can also be controlled over the network with an Extron IPCP Pro control processor. A second tab enables selection and control of content stored locally on the computer, including image, video, and audio files.

Computer Software

The ShareLink software offers an intuitive user interface for simplified operation by non-technical users. With this software, any content that is on the computer screen can be mirrored to the display, including images from Microsoft Surface„¢ Pro 3 tablets. The easy-to-use menu provides playback control, visible indication of sharing status, and display options from full screen to placing the image in any one of four windows on the main display.
