Hybrid Conferencing - How to Share Content Wirelessly to Webex Devices

When you connect to Board, Desk, and Room Series devices, you can share content wirelessly when you're not in a call or meeting from the Webex App.

Sharing using Miracast - Windows Only

Sharing using Miracast Instructions
1

On your laptop press Windows+K , or click the Action Center icon and then click Connect . Windows will scan for Miracast receivers.

2

Click on the Webex Board or Room Series device you want to cast to. A PIN will appear on the device's screen.

3

Enter the PIN on your laptop and click Connect to begin sharing

Reopen the Action Center > Connect list and select the connected device to disconnect it, or to change the Projection Mode . For example, you'd select Extend if you want to show slides on the Webex device, but keep meeting notes on your laptop screen only.

Sharing using Apple AirPlay

Sharing using Apple AirPlay Instructions
1

Open the Control Center on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Select Screen Mirroring.

2

Select the Webex device you want to share to.

3

The Webex device will show a Passcode (depending on how security settings have been configured for that device).

Your Apple device will request this passcode.

4

Enter the passcode on your Apple device to establish the share.


 

On Board and Desk Series, swiping up from the bottom of the homescreen opens the Task Switcher, and you can move to another app. This will end your share.

Sharing from the Webex App

1

Click on the device name in Webex App and click Share Screen.

2

When you're connected to a cloud device, you can also improve the frame rate and audio for shared content:

  • Share computer audio—The audio is played and everyone can hear the audio.
  • Optimize for video—The content is displayed at up to 30 frames per second (fps) with a resolution of 720p. For example, if you're sharing a video or slide deck, the frame rate is increased and this reduces any lag.

3

Select the screen or app to share.

4

Check out a preview of what you're sharing at the top of the screen. Make sure you’re sharing only what you want and that everyone in the meeting can see it.


 

To show the preview after it disappears, go to the tab in the control bar at the top of the screen and click the down arrow.

5

While you're sharing, you can select the following:

  • Share screen  to switch to another screen or application without needing to stop sharing first.

  • Annotate  to mark-up a shared screen during a call or a meeting.

  • Pause  to pause sharing your screen or application.

  • Resume  to resume sharing your screen or application.
