“App creep” is the continuous and thoughtless addition of apps on a laptop, phone or tablet that are laying down a pathway for potential hackers, malware, and security problems down the road. Even if completely legitimate, these apps could become outdated and vulnerable because your system administrator doesn’t know you installed it.
BenQ’s InstaShow $1,099 WDC10 wireless presentation system (https://business-display.benq.com/en/findproduct/wireless-solution/instashow-wireless-collaboration/wdc10.html) is designed to now only eliminate app creep for meeting software but also the CIA-level security clearance from IT needed for participants. By using a hardware solution, organizations can take a step toward reducing app creep not only for internal users, but visitors as well. With the push of a button, up to 16 users can share content seamlessly and in high-quality video from any notebook — even the latest models equipped with USB-C — without hassling with cables, connectors, drivers, and software.
InstaShow is a plug-and-play solution that wirelessly connects a user’s computer to a central display or projector without requiring driver installation or compatibility with any operating system or hardware platform. With InstaShow, any participant — even a guest — can automatically take control of the meeting and share content with the group without slowing down the presentation. The system supports up to 16 different input sources.
InstaShow is compatible with all mobile devices and works with any display with an HDMI port. It also supports up to four different split screens
The WDC10 portfolio shares images up to 1080p, and the latest model, the WDC10C, is designed for compatibility with the latest notebooks using the new USB-C connector. InstaShow buttons can mix and match with either USB-C or HDMI models in the same room to accommodate any device. A new version, the WDC20, will be released in the fourth quarter and will add 4K support to transmit UHD content.
