ScreenBeam Pro supports the Managed Meetings feature, which is provided with Intel Pro
WiDi (Gen 5). The Managed Meetings feature allows meeting participants to share their
screens interactively, or allow the owner (the first connected user who has set the interactive
mode to “I can request others to present”) to manage other participants.
There are three meeting modes available when the Managed Meetings function is enabled.
Only I present. No one else can share or take control.
Others can request to present. Other people can request control/sharing.
I can request others to present. You control sharing.
Note: To use the Managed Meetings function, the AGO function must be enabled. Refer to
Section 5.3.18. Setting up Autonomous Group Owner (AGO) for details.
Note: Intel® Pro WiDi (WiDi 5.x.x.x) requires the Haswell (or better) systems.
Note: For detailed instructions and related information about Intel Pro WiDi’s Managed
Meetings, refer to http://www.actiontec.com/prowidi.

display application (Intel WiDi or Windows 8.1 Project, for example).
In Windows, press the Windows logo and P keys simultaneously (
display options and select the desired display mode from the options.
+ P) to launch the
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 the 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.
You’ll see everything on the connected screen, and your device’s screen will be blank.
4.3. Ultra-Low Delay
The Receiver also supports ultra-low delay, which helps reduce end-to-end wireless display
latency. Real-time applications, such as games, can run without noticeable delay when the
Ultra-Low Delay mode is enabled on supported devices.
21

be able to connect with the ScreenBeam receiver if this mode is enabled. Refer to
the device’s user manual for detail about enabling the PIN connection.
Random: A PIN code is generated randomly by the system and displayed on
the connected HDTV/projector.
Static: Users can define seven (7) digits, and then the system generates an
eight (8) digit PIN with that seven digits included.
Enter seven (7) digits in the Static box, click the "Apply" button, and the
system generates an eight (8) digit PIN and display it on the Static PIN field.
This PIN will not be displayed on the connected display.

video playback when working in a clean network.
3. Click the Apply button, and then click OK on the pop-up message box to confirm.
31
5.3.8. Setting up Force EDID at RTSP M3
Extended display identification data (EDID) is a data structure provided by a digital display
to describe its capabilities to a video source (e.g. graphics card or set-top box). It is what
enables a modern personal computer to know what kinds of monitors are connected to it.
If the EDID data provided by the display device is not compatible with the video source (such
as ScreenBeam Pro), the video display may show a distorted or blank screen.
The Force EDID at RTSP M3 feature is used to override the information from the EDID data,
and outputs 1080p/i resolution.
Follow the procedure below to set up Force EDID at RTSP M3:
1. Go to the Features tab page by clicking the Features tab.
2. Set the Force EDID at RTSP M3 feature to Enable or Disable according practical
requirements.
Enable: Information from EDID data is overridden. The video output of the receiver
is set to 1080p/i resolution.
Disable: The EDID data is used for negotiation to decide an output resolution.
Generally, the maximum resolution supported by the receiver and the display device
is used.
3. Click the Apply button, and then click OK on the pop-up message box to confirm.
5.3.9. Setting up HDCP Encryption
HDCP Encryption is supported by most display devices and may be required by some.
Disabling this feature may improve the video performance when high interactivity is desired.
Also in certain setups, some HDMI switches may have problem with the HDCP encryption
32
and this feature is provided for the compatibility issue.
Follow the procedure below to set up HDCP encryption:
1. Go to the Features tab page by clicking the Features tab.
2. Set the HDCP Encryption feature to Enable or Disable according practical
requirements.
Enable: This option is default. HDCP encryption is enabled to protect HDCP
protected media.
Disable: Disabling the HDCP Encryption function will improve connection speed
and compatibility. However, you cannot play HDCP protected media.
3. Click the Apply button, and then click OK on the pop-up message box to confirm.
4. The receiver reboots, and new settings take effect after the reboot.
Warning: DO NOT disable this feature, unless you have confirmed that your display device
supports that.
5.3.10. Setting up the VGA Compatibility Mode
Follow the procedure below to select a VGA compatibility mode:
1. Go to the Features tab page by clicking the Features tab.
2. Go to the VGA Compatibility Mode line, and select the desired option in the VGA
Compatibility Mode box. There are three options: Disable, 1080, and 720.
33
