myViewBoard Display allows users to mirror their desktop wirelessly to supported Interactive Flat Panels (IFP) and Wireless Presentation Displays (WPD). myViewBoard Display comes preinstalled on selected ViewBoard hardware, but can also be installed manually on any IFP or WPD that runs Android 6 or higher.


Once myViewBoard display is installed on an IFP or WPD, users will only need to use a compatible browser to start mirroring their device screen to the host.


Prerequisites

Verify that the IFP or WPD that will act as host meets the following requirements:

  • OS must be Android 6 or higher
  • Must have open access to the Public Internet
  • User must have enough rights to install on the IFP or WPD
  • For a list of supported IFPs and WPDs, see this list.
  • The setting "Allow installation of apps from unknown sources" has been enabled on the IFP.


Steps to enable the "Unknown Sources" setting will vary depending on the IFP model. See the following pages below for examples:


If in doubt, your IFP's user manual will most likely contain instructions on installing APK files. If you need further assistance, see if you can find your answers here, or contact your IFP reseller for more details.


It is recommended to have the following ports open:

  • TCP Port 443 (HTTPS) outbound
  • UDP and TCP port 3478 bidirectional to the WebRTC servers
  • UDP Ports 50,000 – 65,535 (RTP/sRTP/RTCP) bidirectional to the WebRTC servers

These ports are optional. If blocked, media will be proxied using TURN on port 3478.


Devices that will cast to the IFP or WPD must meet the following requirements:

  • Operating system must be Windows 10, MacOS or ChromeOS
  • Must have the latest version of Google Chrome, Chromium or Microsoft Edge Chromium browser installed
  • There must be a stable internet connection between the device and the IFP or WPD

  2. Type the Display Code and One Time Password shown on the IFP.
    Note that the password changes every 30 seconds.
  3. Click Send my screen to Display.
  4. If you have multiple screens, you may need to specify which screen you want to display.

Supported IFPs and WPDs

myViewBoard Display can also be installed manually on any IFP or WPD that runs Android 6 or higher. For a list of supported IFPs and WPDs, see this list.


Troubleshooting

If you have issues connecting, check the following:

  • Verify that both the IFP and the connecting desktop have good network connection.
  • Check if the One Time Password has not yet expired.
  • myViewBoard Display supports 1:1 mirroring. This means that each session must be between one IFP and one client only.
