Miracast on ClickShare C-series and CX-series

Numer artykułu: [3351] - Kod starszej wersji: [11875]


Miracast streaming with CX-series and C-series Base Unit works in two stages: Discovery and Connection.

In the first (i.e. discovery) stage, the Miracast enabled devices (typically Windows 10 computers or certain Android smartphones) searches for the Base Unit enabled for Miracast streaming (option Streaming via Miracast must be enabled in the Base Unit WebUI). The discovery always happens via the Miracast Wi-Fi beacons sent out by Base Unit. These beacons are sent out regardless of the state of the Wi-Fi configuration of the Base Unit.

In the second (i.e. connection) stage, the connection for content sharing is established with the Base Unit using either MS-MICE[1] or P2P functionality (aka Wi-Fi direct)[2] or both. The connectivity stage depends on the network configuration settings of the Base Unit - see the table below.

  1. If the Base Unit can be reached over the corporate network, an MS-MICE connection will be preferred and established.
  2. If the Base Unit cannot be reached over the network, a Miracast P2P connection will be set up

In the P2P case, the Miracast receiver (i.e. Base Unit) creates its own wireless network and the device connects directly (via P2P) to it without compromising its personal Wi-Fi connection. This means that your PC or tablet can still be online via its Wi-Fi connection while streaming over Miracast.

Info! An inherent limitation of the Miracast P2P connection is that only one device can be shown on screen at a time.
Info! Miracast on C-5/10 & CX-20/30 only supported:
  • Base Unit is Corporate Network Integrated via LAN cable.
  • Buttons are Corporate Network Integrated via Wi-Fi.

Miracast on CX-50 is always supported, with the exception of the Base Unit in Wireless Client mode.
