Put Your Dongle Away: The Wireless Conference Room Delivered
May 19, 2016 by Priscilla Barolo

You’d like to share some documents in your upcoming meeting. What do you do? Run them off at the copier? No! This isn’t the 90’s. How about plugging your laptop into the conference room system with a dongle? Nope! This isn’t the 2000’s. The year is 2016. It’s time: put your dongle away!

The Problem With Dongles in the Conference Room

Put Your Dongle Away! The Wireless Conference Room DeliveredThe problem with dongles is multifold:

  • They break
  • They go suspiciously missing whenever you need one
  • They aren’t compatible with your device, so you end up searching for an adaptor (aka the Double Dongle Nightmare)

This antiquated technology, however, is necessary with other video conferencing platforms, so most people have just accepted this inconvenience as the way things are. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

Wireless aka Dongle-Less Content Sharing

The solution is to put your dongle away and use Zoom’s wireless content sharing instead! In your Zoom Room you can screen share any content wirelessly with your remote and/or local participants without dongles. There are two methods:

  1. Type into your browser and then type in the meeting ID or room name. Your content will pop-up right away on the conference room screens and your remote participants’ devices.
  2. Share via Airplay mirroring from your Mac, iPhone, or iPad. Follow a few simple steps and your content will be shared in no time.

If you’re ready to cut the dongles, cords, cables, and nonsense, sign up for a live demo with a Zoom product specialist today!
