Tips for Optimal Performance

To get the most out of ScreenBeam Mini 2, note the following: s

Keep the Receiver in line-of-sight in relation to the source device. Doing this will help ensure the Receiver receives the best possible signal.

s

The Receiver’s optimal wireless range is within 30 feet of the source device.

However, actual range and effectiveness depends on many factors, including the amount of existing signal interference and the building materials used in the surrounding structure.

s

Avoid placing the Receiver near other possible sources of interference (such as electric fans or other devices with electric motors), microwave ovens, and cordless phones.

Display and

Control Options

3

This chapter describes the various display modes and control options that are supported by ScreenBeam Mini 2.

Display Mode

ScreenBeam Mini 2 supports three display modes when connected with a compatible wireless display application (Intel WiDi or Windows 8.1 Project, for example).

In Windows, press the Windows logo + P keys simultaneously to launch the display options and select the desired display mode from the options.

16

ScreenBeam Mini 2 Wireless Display Receiver

Duplicate

The Duplicate mode is used to display the same content on both the device’s screen and the HDTV simultaneously.

Note: There may be minor delay between the content displayed on the HDTV screen compared to the device’s screen. This is due to the current state of wireless display technology.

Extend

The Extend mode creates a single, extended “screen” between the source device and the HDTV. When in Extend mode, dragging windows to the right side of the device’s screen displays those windows on the HDTV, while dragging windows to the left of the HDTV screen displays them back on the device’s screen. This mode allows users to display selected content on the HDTV, while all other windows remain on the device’s screen. When this mode is first selected, the HDTV displays only the Windows desktop.

Second Screen Only

The Second Screen Only mode causes the HDTV to be the only display for the device. All content will be displayed on the HDTV; the source device’s screen will be blank.

17

Display Options

Ultra-Low Delay

ScreenBeam Mini 2 also supports Ultra-Low Delay mode, which helps reduce end-to-end wireless display latency. Real-time applications, such as games, can run without noticeable delay when Ultra-Low Delay mode is enabled on supported devices.

Intel WiDi

You can activate Ultra-Low Delay on a device running Intel WiDi 3.5 or higher.

Follow the steps below to switch to ultra-low delay mode:

1.

Launch the Intel WiDi application, connect to ScreenBeam Mini 2, then click Settings.

2.

In the “Settings” screen, select Current Display Settings.
