Dual Wi-Fi for Screencasting

If you're having network difficulty screencasting on the Vibe board, this is a proven solution.

For customers with wireless screencasting issues, including:

  • Inability to screencast through the network
  • Unstable wireless screencast 

Dual Wi-Fi will set up a hotspot for you to screencast wirelessly, which is more stable and a smoother experience.
