Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q) Will ScreenBeam Conference support handoffs if there is more than 1 person that wants to present? Example- A person is managing the Teams meeting with their laptop. They share their screen to the front display but someone else wants to present, can a 2nd presenter share their screen?
Initially, only the person that is connected to the front of room resources will be able to present. In a future release, we may extend support for Multiview and QuickSwitch to allow for additional presenters
Q) Will the user need to have Admin rights to install our BYOM app
Yes. In most managed environments, it is expected that the IT department will deploy this as part of a corporate approved image. However, in cases where users wish to install the app independently, they will need admin rights to their PC for the installation
Q) How is the performance of the app compared to competitive offerings?
Our goal is to deliver good performance that does not overly use system resources. We expect to enable ScreenBeam conference to run on 7th generation Core i5 and up (or equivalent AMD) processors.
Q) Do we need to validate every meeting room peripheral to work with SB1100P?
At initial launch we will support 3-in-1 Video Bars (i.e., Logitech MeetUp or Poly Studio) as well as 2-in-1 (speaker + microphone) devices used in conjunction with stand along camera. We will publish a list of tested devices. This does not mean other devices will not work, list is only based upon devices tested in house.
Q) Is Multiview and/or QuickSwitch mode available for in room sharing when using BYOM app?
At initial launch, neither Multiview nor QuickSwitch Mode will be supported. We may add support for extended ScreenBeam features like this in a future update.
Q) Will we have an mobile version (iOs/iPadOs and Android ?)
There are no plans to support mobile devices at this time.
Q) What is on the audio output of the box?
There are no changes to the I/O supported on the ScreenBeam 1100 Plus. Audio devices are supported via USB. It is recommended that the devices either be 3-in1 devices (Microphone, Speakers and Camera all in one) or 2-in-1 devices (Microphone + Speakers) used in conjunction with a standalone camera to ensure proper echo cancellation during the meeting. In future updates, we will add support for separate standalone microphone, speakers and cameras.
Q) Is there an additional license fee or charges required to enable ScreenBeam Conference?
ScreenBeam Conference is enabled on the SB1100P at no additional charge nor annual license fee.
Q) How will the ScreenBeam Conference app be made available?
The app will be hosted on https://screenbeam.com/getconference. However, we expect most corporate deployments will be part of an approved corporate image and distributed by the organization’s IT department.
Q) Does the app work with any UC conferencing platform?
We expect that most UC platforms should work correctly. However, at launch our initial testing is on Microsoft Teams and Zoom.
