Tips for Optimal Performance
To get the most out of the Receiver:
s
s
s
Keep the Receiver in line-of-sight in relation to the source device. This will
help ensure the Receiver receives the best possible signal.
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.
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 supported by
the Receiver.
Display Mode
The Receiver 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 on the keyboard simultaneously to
launch the display options and select the desired display mode from the options.
17
ScreenBeam™ 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 monitor
compared to the source 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 monitor. When in Extend mode, dragging windows to the right side of the
device’s screen displays those windows on the monitor, while dragging windows to
the left of the monitor displays them back on the device’s screen. This mode allows
users to display selected content on the monitor, while all other windows remain
on the device’s screen. When this mode is first selected, the monitor displays only
the Windows desktop.
Second Screen Only
The Second Screen Only mode causes the monitor to be the only display for the
device. All content will be displayed on the monitor; the source device’s screen will
be blank.
18
Display Options
Ultra-Low Delay
The Receiver 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
Ultra-Low Delay is only available on a source 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 the Receiver, then
click Settings.
2. In the Settings screen, select Current Display Settings.

The following tips and instructions are intended for IT personnel only.
1. Update the device’s Intel Wi-Fi Network Adapter’s driver to the latest version provided by the PC OEM or wireless manufacturer. Intel’s latest DualBand Wi-Fi Network Adapter 72xx and 3260, and corresponding driver
released on January 2015 are known to be best at handling DCM (Different
Channel Mode). There should be little to no effect to the Miracast P2P
when changes are made to the Infrastructure Wireless connection.
2. For devices with and older Wi-Fi Network Adapter, such as
s
Intel’s Centrino 6xxx or similar series,
s
or Marvell’s AVASTAR series,
there are limitations to the driver and/or hardware, and the performance
might not be as stable. If this is the case, try from one of the following
procedures:
s
if Internet is not required, disconnect the device’s Wi-Fi connection
from wireless Internet SSID, then connect to the Receiver;

What is Wi-Fi Miracast™?
Wi-Fi Certified Miracast™ is a groundbreaking solution for seamlessly displaying video between devices, without cables or a network connection. Users
can view pictures from a smartphone on a big screen television, share a laptop
screen with the conference room projector in real-time, and watch live programs from a home cable box on a tablet. Miracast™ connections are formed
using Wi-Fi Certified Wi-Fi Direct™, so access to a Wi-Fi® network is not
needed–the ability to connect is inside Miracast™-certified devices.
What is Wi-Fi Direct and can I connect to ScreenBeam using Wi-Fi Direct?
Wi-Fi Direct is a peer-to-peer technology that Miracast™ connections are
formed in. Even though some newer Android 4.0 and Windows 8.1 devices
may detect ScreenBeam in the Wi-Fi Direct devices scan list, they will not be
able to connect to ScreenBeam. The device must support Miracast™ to connect
with ScreenBeam.

ScreenBeam™ Wireless Display Receiver
Can I connect to the Wi-Fi router and ScreenBeam simultaneously with my
Intel WiDi laptop?
Yes. Connect the laptop to an available Wi-Fi router first, and then connect to
ScreenBeam. You can then view online content and beam it to the HDTV.
Can I connect to the Wi-Fi router and ScreenBeam simultaneously with my
Miracast™ device?
Some Miracast™ devices cannot connect to both the Wi-Fi router and
ScreenBeam at the same time. Refer to the device manufacturer’s or carrier’s
user manual for more information.
Can I connect several Intel WiDi or Miracast devices to ScreenBeam simultaneously?
No. You can connect one device to ScreenBeam at a time.
Can I connect to multiple ScreenBeam Receivers simultaneously?
No. You can only connect to one ScreenBeam Receiver at a time.
My TV/Projector does not have an HDMI Input. Can I still use ScreenBeam?
Yes. An HDMI-to-VGA adapter is included for compatibility with legacy display devices.
Can Microsoft Surface Pro tablet output Intel WiDi?
Originally, Microsoft Surface Pro does not support wireless display. However,
it can support wireless display after you upgrade its operating system to
Windows 8.1. The latest Microsoft Surface 2 and Surface Pro 2 with Windows
8.1 can support wireless display.
Can I use the ScreenBeam to access online content directly?
No. ScreenBeam does not directly connect to the Internet. You must use a
source device (laptop/Utrabook/tablet/smartphone) to wirelessly stream the
online content to your Receiver.
60
Troubleshooting and FAQs
Can ScreenBeam support UoIP?
No.
Can I push media to ScreenBeam using DLNA?
No. ScreenBeam is not a DLNA media receiver.
Does ScreenBeam work with the Apple iPhone, iPad, or iPod?
No. ScreenBeam does not support Apple devices or the AirPlay protocol.
How to set my receiver to use the 5G frequency?

in this band can produce better performance.
To set your receiver on the 5G band, you must prepare a 5G router first.
Note: not all routers support the 5G band. You can confirm this with the
product manufacturer.
When a 5G router is available, connect your device to the 5G router first, and
then connect your device to your receiver. Then your receiver will works in
the 5G band.
How to identify if my device can connect to ScreenBeam?
ScreenBeam supports Intel WiDi ready and WiFi Certified Miracast devices.

If the Intel WiDi (3.5 or higher) application is already installed on your
device, your device can connect to ScreenBeam.
If your device does not have Intel WiDi, try this simple method to check if
your device supports Intel WiDi. Download the Intel WiDi (3.5 or higher)
application and try installing it on your device. If it can be installed, your
device supports Intel WiDi. If the application can’t be installed, update the
drivers of the graphic adapter and wireless adapter on your device first,
and then install the application. If it can be installed, your device supports
Intel WiDi. Otherwise, your device doesn’t support Intel WiDi.
To check if your device is Miracast enabled, check if the WiFi Certified
Miracast logo is printed on the package of your device or directly on your
device, or, if the wireless display app is available on your device. If yes, your
device can connect to ScreenBeam.
