UIBC for Miracast (Touchback capabilities)
The Miracast option includes the implementation of the User Input Back Channel (UIBC) feature, which enhances the interactivity and convenience for teachers and students alike. Here are three key use cases of UIBC in Montage:
- With UIBC, users can now control their presentations wirelessly from their display, effortlessly navigating through slides or zooming in on specific content. Users can highlight key points or annotate directly on the touchscreen without needing to be physically close to the source device.
- Collaborative learning and group projects: UIBC enables users to wirelessly share their work from Miracast-enabled devices to the interactive touchscreen, fostering collaboration and creativity. Users can work together on projects or presentations, easily navigating through content using the touchscreen's intuitive controls, promoting a more hands-on learning experience.
- Seamless media control for educational content: The UIBC feature allows users to control media playback on their display, which is streaming content wirelessly from a Miracast-enabled device. Users can pause, play, skip, or rewind videos or interactive media using the touchscreen's controls, providing a seamless and engaging learning experience.
With the addition of UIBC, Montage wireless casting software enhances the experience, promoting interactivity and collaboration while simplifying content sharing and control.
