Vivitek has updated the button-solution of its wireless sharing lineup — NovoConnect — called the LauncherPlus. The new LauncherPlus connects to any laptop to establish a direct Wi-Fi connection to all the Wireless Collaboration solutions in Vivitek’s Novo Ecosystem — both Add-On Devices and All-in-One display solutions.
The new LauncherPlus is designed with an even higher level of security in mind, using a Read Only Memory to establish a single click connection for wireless screen mirroring. It features five buttons for access and control and now uses Wi-Fi (2.4GHz & 5GHz, 2T2R dual band Wi-Fi antenna) for a faster and longer distance operational range of up to 15 meters. Intended for guests that are unable to install the NovoConnect software on their PC/Mac, Vivitek says the new LauncherPlus streamlines and secures the connection process with zero impact on the existing network.
Of course, the new LauncherPlus pairs with any NovoConnect device, as well as the NovoDisplay, an all-in-one 4K collaboration display made by Vivitek. It is also compatible with Vivitek’s NovoTouch, another all-in-one touch display for conference rooms, meeting areas and corporate lobbies. The LauncherPlus’ compatibility with all of Vivitek’s wireless collaboration products in the Novo Ecosystem helps with higher user adoption.
During setup, the new LauncherPlus offers not only mirroring to display devices but also click and display functionality within five seconds when paired. In addition to benefitting from the new LauncherPlus being compatible with 2.4 and 5G Wi-Fi and its enhanced distance range, regular LauncherPlus users will notice other improvements that extend to one Click to Connect, Start and Withdraw, and four buttons with Interactive Functions. These range from “join presentation” to “toggle screen extension,” “show/hide this software” and “move projection position.”
Finally, LauncherPlus delivers a higher level of security supporting the Advanced Encryption Standard, and uses an AES256-bit key to protect data and password protected configuration with Meeting ID and PIN Code Protection. The NovoConnects solutions offer a Dual Network environment to separate networks for guests and employees, making it a trusted solution for IT departments to implement. It also has an ISO 27001 certification for compliance with the international standard for information security management.
