A new year, for many, often means focusing on improvement, self-improvement, improvement in our jobs, improvement in our focus for the year. This usually means finding a new solution to help us achieve these goals – a new diary, a new blender, a new piece of software. But more often than not, the answer is already there, and it’s not an entirely new solution; it’s a small change to something we’re already doing — an improvement in our approach.
Over the past few months, we used your feedback and internal research to identify ways to make Newline Cast even better. We’re happy to introduce Newline Cast 2.2.3 to you (let’s call it the Newline Cast January update), packed with new features and improvements, so you get even more out of your collaboration sessions.
A No-Fuss Overview of the Newline Cast January Update
- Floating ID function for screen sharing without interruptions
- New DisplayNote App for iPad
- Improved mobile functionality
- Fixes and improvements
And Here’s the Extended Edition (with commentary)
Keep the flow with Floating ID
You asked, and we listened. With the new Floating ID function, you have the freedom to use your touch screen and wirelessly share devices at the same time.
Newline Cast’s intelligent design gives you the duality to choose how you work while casting at the same time. Simply start a Cast session, hit minimize or press the screen’s home button (on android).
The session ID stays on screen while you’re working – be it using the Newline interactive whiteboard, teaching apps, or browsing. You decide.
This new function means anyone in the room can share their screen without interrupting the flow of the lesson or meeting taking place. And with full support for touch events, you get to choose the best place to position the session ID on your screen.
It also allows you to start a session on Android, switch to the Windows OPS with no interruption to your screen sharing.
More ways to connect with the DisplayNote App for iPad
BYOD-enabled environments have become the new standard in education and businesses. With students and employees relying on personal devices to share their work, ideas, and presentations, wireless collaboration has never been more essential. We’ve added a brand new DisplayNote app for iPad to give you more ways to connect and share your screen than ever before.
Like DisplayNote’s iPhone app, iPad users don’t need to worry about what network they’re on when it comes to mirroring – cross-network mirroring comes as standard.
More than just casting
Users can view what’s being presented and annotated, share files, and much more. It’s the perfect tool if you use iPads in your classroom or meeting room.
Getting the software
These features are free for all users; you’ll see a prompt to updates in your version of the software.
