The Throw feature allows others to send images or videos from their device to a myViewBoard session.


Participants can only throw to active sessions running on myViewBoard for Windows. Before asking participants to throw, prepare the 'target' session first:

  1. Launch the myViewBoard for Windows program.
  2. Sign in using a myViewBoard account.
  3. Enable casting. On the main toolbar, click the Cast icon to open the Cast toolbar:
    • If disabled, the cast icon is red and the myViewBoard name is empty. Click the red cast icon to enable.
    • If enabled, the cast icon is green and the myViewBoard name is displayed.
  4. Provide the myViewBoard Name to the participants.

For more information on casting, see Wireless Presentation.
