DVDO’s new TILE is a “universal wireless casting box” for both professional and commercial integrators. DVDO will also be demonstrating the TILE solution at Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) February 6 – 9, 2018 in RAI Amsterdam in the Custom Home Europe, Stand #1N85. The DVDO TILE claims to simplify the process of wirelessly connecting multiple users to an existing display system (think: Barco ClickShare but with input overlay capabilities). TILE allows casting of any desktop, application, video, image or other content to the shared screen with the simple touch of a button (sound familiar?).
Up to five different tiled windows can be displayed simultaneously, allowing multiple users to share content, compare videos and images, or to bring up websites alongside presentations. The TILE system offers five HDMI inputs including an HDMI 2.0a 4K pass through, two USB inputs and two HDMI mirrored outputs. Aimed at collaborative environments, TILE users manage their inputs and output configuration via the TILE App, which is available for iOS and Android mobile devices, as well as for Mac and Windows PC systems.
A Moderator mode can help approve and queue the casted content before it is shown on screen, offering an amazing feature for educational environments such as universities.
The DVDO TILE is $1,199
