Tips for Optimal Performance
To get the most out of ScreenBeam Mini 2, note the following:
s
s
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.
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 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.
