Sharing content

In the meeting room, you can share content from a device (such as a laptop) with participants, for example, to show a PowerPoint presentation or share your desktop.

Connect your device to the Teamline system and on the touchscreen controller during a call, tap share my PC screen:

If enabled by your administrator, you can tap presentation help for assistance with connecting devices to the Teamline system.

Sharing content with Pronto

Pronto can be connected to devices (such as laptops) to share content and audio, and display current meetings on the Touch and room display, even if the room is not invited to the meeting. When connected to the device, Pronto detects active meetings in your Outlook calendar, then enables the join now tile on the Touch to allow the room to join the meeting.

Connect Pronto to your device:

The first time you plug Pronto in, instructions are shown on the room display:

When the Pronto app is launched, the presentation source screen is shared to the room on the display and active meetings are displayed as a join now tile on the Touch and on the room display. Future meetings in your Outlook calendar that start within the next 15 minutes are displayed on the Touch and are visible on the room display. On subsequent connections using Pronto, the app does not need to be launched and content and meetings are shared immediately with the room.

To begin sharing content with meeting participants, tap share my PC screen on the Touch.

Sharing content using Screen Share

On Teamline 5141 systems, you can also present content using an HDMI-to-USB dongle, such as Logitech Screen Share. If you are using Logitech Screen Share to share content, you can present audio to meeting participants. Otherwise, audio is not shared from connected devices. To connect your device to the room, follow the manufacturer’s instructions specific to your device.

Sharing content using Miracast

If enabled by your administrator and supported on your Teamline system, you can use Miracast to share content in meetings. Before you use Miracast, ensure you check that:

  • Your device supports Miracast
  • Your video drivers support Miracast and are up-to-date
  • Your wireless network card supports Miracast
  • Your WiFi drivers are up-to-date

On Windows 10, press the Windows key + K. A list of available devices is displayed. Select the Teamline system from the list to start sharing your screen.

For instructions to use Miracast on Windows 8 and for troubleshooting information, go to the Microsoft Support Site at:

Sharing content using Skype for Business

To share content using Skype for Business:

  1. If you are not already connected, start a Skype for Business call with the account associated with the Teamline meeting room.
  2. When the call is accepted in the room on the touchscreen, click Share Content at the bottom of the Skype for Business window.
  3. Select the content you want to share (for example, your desktop or a PowerPoint file), then click Share.

For more information about sharing content using Skype for Business, refer to the Skype for Business support page .

If you are in the same room as the Teamline system, It is recommended that you mute the volume and microphone on your device while you present to prevent audio feedback.
