Magewell and Iluminari Collaborate to Add HDMI
PC Input Capabilities to Quicklaunch
Nanjing, China and Calgary, Alberta —September 23, 2016 --Nanjing Magewell Electronics Co., Ltd. (“Magewell”) and Iluminari Inc. announced today that Magewell has joined Illuminari’s QuicklaunchTM Solution Partner Program (QSPP). Introduced in August, the QSPP provides a unique framework for delivering multiplatform collaboration experiences across customer environments. Through the Quicklaunch Solution Partner Program, Magewell augments the Quicklaunch experience to easily support wired device inputs. In particular, the Magewell USB Capture HDMI video capture dongle combines with the new Quicklaunch application to reduce the complexity of incorporating wired HDMI inputs.
Magewell USB Capture HDMI allows users to stream the HDMI output of a connected device to a Quicklaunch-equipped PC through the PC’s USB connections. With its HDMI v1.4a input, the Magewell capture device will accept resolutions of up to 1920 x 1200 at 60p. Because it uses the existing drivers on the computer, the USB Capture HDMI will work with any software that supports those drivers. For PCs that do not have an available USB 3.0 port, the Magewell USB Capture HDMI will work with a USB 2.0 port, although the resolution and frame rate capabilities will be reduced due to the restricted bandwidth.
Quicklaunch™ is a fully configurable, multi-platform meeting application with a simple user interface that brings appliance-like ease of use to the meeting room with the flexibility and familiarity of collaboration applications. Quicklaunch™ helps ensure a consistent experience across the full enterprise, minimizing the need for user training and IT support.
“We are pleased that Iluminari recognizes the high quality, versatility and ease-of-use that the Magewell USB Capture HDMI dongle brings to their Quicklaunch solution, and we are honored to become members of the elite Quicklaunch Solution Partner Program,” said Fei Ma, Chief Technical Officer at Magewell. "The combination of the Quicklaunch one-click experience with our truly plug-and-play video capture provides virtually unlimited options for sharing video sources across all popular meeting platforms. Our partnership ultimately provides users with a powerful and robust yet simple meeting and collaboration experience.”
“We are delighted to be working with Magewell to solve challenges our customers face when adding wired device screen sharing capabilities to Skype for Business or really any platform,” said Angela Hlavka, CEO at Iluminari Tech. “Our collaboration ensures our customers get a tested and intuitive wired screen sharing experience. With Magewell and Quicklaunch together it provides our customers a great experience.”
