When it comes to wirelessly sharing the screen, there are actually many ways to do so. Some require users to install the software, some require users to use an extra dongle to do it. However, some companies may have policies in place to restrict employees from installing software randomly on their work computers. Here are a few common reasons:
- Security risks: Randomly installing software can expose the company’s network and systems to security vulnerabilities. Some software may contain malware or have weak security measures, which could compromise sensitive company data or provide unauthorized access to networks.
- Legal and licensing concerns: Many software applications are protected by copyright laws, and using them without proper licenses is illegal. Random software installations may lead to unauthorized use of copyrighted software, exposing the company to legal risks and potential fines.
- Compatibility issues: Software installations can sometimes conflict with existing software or the operating system, causing compatibility issues and system instability. Unapproved software may not undergo compatibility testing within the company’s environment, leading to unforeseen technical problems.
- Technical support challenges: Supporting a wide range of software installations becomes challenging for IT teams. When employees install software randomly, it becomes difficult to provide efficient technical support and troubleshooting, potentially leading to increased IT costs and decreased productivity.
If your company has those concerns and you are not allowed to install extra software, don’t worry, you can still enjoy wireless presentation in the meeting room. ASTROS provides users several ways to share the screen without using cables. Here are how you can share without installing software:
