ScreenLink features a simple three-step on-screen set-up process with fast connection of new devices. Security is also a priority, which can be set to fixed, random or no access code requirements.

The convenience of wireless network streaming allows users to share their computer screens without worrying about connecting cables, ideal for viewing spreadsheets and documents to the room. For applications where latency is important when sharing of audio and video, such as video conferencing, voice over IP calls, software demonstrations and trainings both the SW-0501-HDBT and NHD-SW-0501 models support wired VGA and HDMI inputs for fully uncompressed, zero-latency sharing.
