The TelyHD device has this ability using client software called TelyShare, but we primarily use Cisco codecs for room systems, so it would be a useful add-on that would allow us to untether the presenter's laptop.
I'm asking that the BlueJeans bridge recognize the laptop I used to enter the pairing code when connecting via Room System as an associated device from which to share content. Currently the management controls are available in-meeting from that computer, but there are no sharing options unless you plug it into the codec.
Hopefully that made sense, I started to confuse myself writing it! Thanks for your reply.
we tried using other wireless presentation tools like the AMX Enzo, barco clickshare and Crestron airmedia, but none work with linux ;)
I definitely agree that having the screen share ability from pairing to a room system would be beneficial and i have seen that raised as a feature request a while back.
Pairing and sharing is under review and being worked towards by
the product team.
In the meantime, I would like you both to try the /share feature. Its not a documented feature at this point but it will allow you to present content (without paring to the room systems) wirelessly or wired into your call without sending or receiving any video or audio.
From any laptop in the room simple add the /share behind your meeting ID URL -
All necessary audio, video and speakers will be muted and you will see a message on the left portion of the screen that will tell the users that they are connected in Content Mode Only".
However, the user can un-mute the devices if needed but be aware they may create unwanted echo into the call.
Think of this as a very quick way to share, while already in a call with a room system, from multiple laptops (presenters) in the same conference room.
Note: You do not need to be paired in order to use the /share feature
Please let me know if you have any other questions about this feature.
