Download the MirrorOp (Sender) App
• Windows Phone/Windows RT not supported by MirrorOp
1) Make sure your PC/Mac is WiFi-enabled, and connect your PC/Mac to the WiCS-2100
through WiFi. You can find the WiFi network name (SSID) of your WiCS-2100 device on
the standby screen of the projector/display. [Default SSID is WiCS-2100-xxx (xxx are the
last three characters of the MAC ID shown on the bottom of the WiCS-2100)]
Windows
Mac
2) Open the browser of your computer, and enter the IP address or the device hostname in
the address bar (URL bar) of the browser. You can find the IP address and hostname on
the standby screen of the projector/display. [Default IP address is 192.168.100.10;
default hostname is WiCS-2100-xxx (xxx are the last three characters of the MAC ID
shown on the bottom of the WiCS-2100)]
3) You can see the “Home” page as below. Click “Portable Software” or “Installer” to
download the portable version or installed version of the MirrorOp (Sender) app for
Windows (Windows 7/8/10) or Mac (macOS 10.9 and above). [Please disable the “Smart
Screen Filter” on the IE browser; otherwise you might not be able to download the app.]
11
WiCS-2100 User’s Manual
Note:
The difference between the portable version and installed version of the MirrorOp
Sender app lies in the following:
(a)
The installed version of the MirrorOp Sender app supports the UoIP (USB over IP)
and SidePad features of the connected WiCS-2100 device, but the portable
version does not. [These differences only apply to Windows users.]
• The UoIP feature of the WiCS-2100 allows users to remotely control the
projecting PC from the display using “special” hand gestures. (Special hand
gestures are used in some game apps and interactive whiteboard apps.)
• Please be aware that UoIP needs to be enabled in the settings of the MirrorOp
Sender app before you use this function. [MirrorOp Sender ->
->
Preferences -> Advanced -> (Remote USB Support) -> Simulate as local
USB]
(b)
The portable version of the MirrorOp Sender app can locate and connect to
the target WiCS-2100 device automatically (if your PC/Mac and the
WiCS-2100 are on the same intranet). Guest users are recommended to
download the portable version as they can start a presentation without any
application installation or device discovery.
(c)
Internal users are suggested to download the installed version of MirrorOp Sender
if there are a number of WiCS-2100 devices deployed on their company/school
networks and they need to connect to different WiCS-2100 devices from time to
time. If they use the portable version, the MirrorOp Sender app will automatically
locate the original WiCS-2100 device (via which the MirrorOp Sender app was
downloaded) and they may need to search for their target device manually.
4) If you have installed the MirrorOp Sender app on your computer, you can click “Device
Profile” to download an MOP file. The downloaded MOP file provides a quick way to
connect to a predefined receiver. A user can double click on the MOP file, and it will
connect to the predefined WiCS-2100 device automatically.

8.5 Remote Control/Remote Touch Control (UMT)
WiCS-2100 supports remote control, including remote touch control (UMT). Users can
remotely control the projecting computer from the display via a mouse, keyboard or touch
screen.
Note:

The UMT (universal multi-touch) function can only support USB HID touch devices
compatible with Windows 7/8/10. Therefore, when the operating system of the sender
device is macOS, touch events on the projector/display screen are translated into
mouse events on the screen of the sender device. [Please be aware that Windows 7
can only provide limited multi-touch capability for specific applications.]

Each USB port on the WiCS-2100 device can supply up to 5V/0.5A power. Additional
power supply is required if the attached HID device needs more power.

Moderator Preview & Control
Moderator actions can be performed in various ways. In particular, WiCS-2100 supports a
new feature called “Student Monitor”, which is moderation via MirrorOp Sender UI.
“Student Monitor”, designed especially for the education, allows teachers to easily stay in
control of the class while encouraging student interaction and collaboration to the greatest
extent possible.
Plaese note that AirPlay and Chromecast (Google Cast) protocols do not support the
moderator functions. After moderation (conference control/student monitor) is enabled,
users’ attempts to connect to the WiCS-2100 via AirPlay or Google Cast will be rejected.
Thus, if you want to use AirPlay or Google Cast, you need to connect your sender device
to the WiCS-2100 before moderation is enabled. However, once stopped,
AirPlay/Google Cast projection cannot be restarted in the moderation mode.
11.1
On-Screen Moderation:
Moderator preview & control can be done directly on the display. Once senders are
connected to the WiCS-2100, the moderator can view the thumbnails of senders’
device screens right on the display. Besides, the moderator can execute the control
actions by simply clicking the icons on each thumbnail. (Please refer to the section “8.
Main Button and Toolbar”.)
11.2
Web-Based Moderation:
Moderator control is one of the functions you can perform through the web admin
page. However, thumbnail preview is not available for the web-based moderator.
(Please refer to the section “9.1.2 Moderator”.)
11.3
“Student Monitor” (Moderation via MirrorOp Sender UI):
“Student Monitor” enables moderator preview and control from a Windows/Mac
sender (teacher). With this feature, monitoring and moderation can be done directly
via the MirrorOp Sender UI (User Interface) on a teacher’s Mac/Windows computer. In
43
WiCS-2100 User’s Manual
other words, through the MirrorOp Sender UI, a teacher can use his/her Mac/Windows
computer to preview and control all students’ device screens before they are projected
to the display. As moderation and monitoring can be performed with ease and
without interfering too much in student group activities, “Student Monitor” is a
great tool for creating a dynamic but orderly classroom.
Below is the detailed information about “Student Monitor”:

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Why does the WiCS-2100 (set as an access point) not appear among the list of available
WiFi networks on my computer/mobile device?
A: This may be because your computer/mobile device only supports 2.4GHz WiFi, not 5GHz
WiFi. As the WiCS-2100 uses the 5GHz band by default, it does not appear among the list
of available WiFi networks on your computer/mobile device. To fix this issue, you should
go to the Admin page (wePresent Configurator) of the WiCS-2100 and change the “Band”
setting from “5GHz” to “2.4GHz”. [Admin/wePresent Configrator -> WiFi & Network ->
WiFi Settings -> AP Mode -> Band -> 2.4GHz]
Q: Why can’t I access the WiCS-2100 web UI (user interface) through a web browser?
A: This may be because your sender device (PC/Mac/mobile device) and the receiver device
(WiCS-2100) are not on the same intranet. In order to troubleshoot this, you can try any
of the following:
•
Set the WiCS-2100 as an access point (AP), and connect your sender device to the
WiCS-2100’s WiFi.
•
Connect your sender device to the WiCS-2100 via a router.
•
Use an Ethernet cable to connect your sender device to the WiCS-2100.
Q: Why can’t the MirrorOp app find the WiCS-2100 device?
A: This may be because your sender device ((PC/Mac/mobile device) and the receiver device
(WiCS-2100) are not on the same subnet. In order to fix this issue, you can try any of the
following:
•
Set the WiCS-2100 as an access point (AP), and connect your sender device to the
WiCS-2100’s WiFi.
•
Connect your sender device to the WiCS-2100 via a router, and make sure they get
an IP address automatically (via DHCP from the router).
•
Use an Ethernet cable to connect your sender device to the WiCS-2100.
57
WiCS-2100 User’s Manual
To check if your sender device and the WiCS-2100 are on the same subnet, you can
compare the IP address of the sender device with that of the WiCS-2100 (shown on the
standby screen of the projector/display). They should be identical in the first three
sections, and only differ in the last section. For example, the IP address of the sender
device is 192.168.100.11 while that of the WiCS-2100 is 192.168.100.10.
If your sender device is a PC/Mac, you can also use the ping command to check the
connection between your PC/Mac and the WiCS-2100.
Note:
WiCS-2100 supports device discovery across subnets via SSDP, but you need to
configure your network environment to enable SSDP by ensuring all of the
following:
(a)
UDP port 1900 is allowed in your firewall;
(b)
The multicast IP address 239.255.255.250 is whitelisted in your firewall;
(c)
IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) and PIM (Protocol Independent
Multicast) are enabled in your network environment.
For assistance, please contact your IT administrator or network equipment supplier.
Q: What can I do if my network does not allow the sender and receiver devices to be on the
same subnet?
A: This sometimes happens in the network configurations of schools or offices where you
just cannot change the settings of the networks you can connect to. If the receiver
device (WiCS-2100) is not on the same subnet as the sender device (PC/Mac/mobile
device), you can manually enter the IP address of the receiver device in the “Input
hostname or IP” field (on the user interface of MirrorOp) in a bid to locate the WiCS-2100.
58
WiCS-2100 User’s Manual
MirrorOp Sender
MirrorOp Presenter
Q: Why does the WiCS-2100 lag from time to time?
A: This may be caused by WiFi interference. Our advice is as follows:
•
If there are multiple wireless APs deployed in your company/school network, it is
recommended that your sender device (PC/Mac/mobile device) and the WiCS-2100
should connect to whichever AP has the strongest signal.
•
If your sender device connects to the WiCS-2100’s WiFi (the WiCS-2100 acts as an
AP), make sure that your sender device is not too far away from the WiCS-2100 and
avoid the physical interference (such as wall and other solid objects) in the wireless
coverage.
•
If multiple APs on your company/school network use the 2.4GHz band (note: the
WiCS-2100 uses the 5GHz band by default), try your best to have them use
different WiFi channels. Channel 1, 6, and 11 are recommended as they are the only
non-overlapping channels in the 2.4GHz band.
Q: Why does the WiCS-2100 still lag when my sender device and the WiCS-2100 are
connected via LAN?
A: This may be caused by insufficient bandwidth. A common scenario is that when you
project a high-resolution photo/video from your computer to the display, a “yellow
turtle” icon appears on your computer screen, which denotes lagging in performance.
59
WiCS-2100 User’s Manual
You may try lowering your computer’s resolution before starting the projection in order
to fix this problem.
Q: Why does the display show “No DHCP Server”?
A: This happens when both of the following conditions are met: (a) The “Bridge” mode is
enabled in “Network Settings”; (b) There is no DHCP server available on the network.
Please note that the wePresent DHCP server will be disabled in the “Bridge” mode” and
that the WiFi station mode cannot be activated in the “Bridge” mode. Therefore, if you
want to enable the “Bridge” mode, you need to do both of the following: (a) Connect
your WiCS-2100 device to your company/school network via an Ethernet cable; (b) Make
sure that a DHCP server is available on the network to which your WiCS-2100 device is
connected.
