*Transmission distance depends on actual environment. Stated distance is based on line-of-sight measurement. Structures constructed of steel, wood, concrete, or brick may decrease transmission distance.

QCast Dongle for BYOD Classrooms of Today

  • Compatible with projectors with HDMI/MHL connector
  • Excellent image quality with support for multiple file formats
  • Supports Display Mirroring by Android (Miracast), iOS and Windows 8 (WiDi) Smart Devices

BenQ has always strived to bring more enjoyment to teaching and learning, providing today's educators from around the world with the latest classroom projection solutions. In supporting the latest BYOD trend, BenQ introduces the QCast Dongle, which is designed to support wireless projection by mirroring contents displayed on computing and smart devices onto the big screen. More and more educators and students are using Apple iPads and Android tablets to interact in class, and enabling wireless display through these devices simply empowers creative and interactive teaching and learning. The Qcast software can be used with smart devices and computing devices for access to multiple file formats, cloud storage, as well as camera, music, video and web-browsing features. Lastly, NFC (Near Field Communication) has transformed everyday life for the better, making day-to-day tasks like transit tickets, clocking in and out of work and exchanging digital contents quicker, more intuitive and effective. NFC smart devices will be able to connect to the QCast Dongle for wireless presentation with a simple tap.  

Quick Wireless Kit for Time-Saving Business Presentation Set-Up

To support business professionals deliver an impactful business presentation efficiently, effectively and timely, BenQ has put together the Quick Wireless Kit, which consists of the Quick Wireless Connection USB and a Wifi dongle to support hassle-free, cable-free and installation-free wireless projection set up that will only take up a couple minutes of the presenter's time. A great timesaving solution for making business presentations using a PC, notebook, or smart device, the kit requires no downloads of any additional software applications to the presenter's PC or notebook. However, if the presenter wishes to present with his or her smartphone or tablet, he or she will find BenQ's own QPresenter Pro APP the perfect wireless presentation aid for making a powerful impression.
