Extron ShareLink Pro LinkLicenses are feature upgrades for ShareLink Pro Wired and Wireless Presentation System products. These LinkLicenses add a variety of capabilities to the presentation system, such as displaying content from centralized signage providers, decoding H.264-based streams from select Extron streaming products or other available live streams, and sharing content between multiple ShareLink Pro devices in active learning spaces.

LinkLicenses are software-enabled enhancements that allow you to easily upgrade Extron products. There are several types of LinkLicenses and each type unlocks a unique set of features and capabilities. With LinkLicenses, you can upgrade your system right out of the box or, over time, as your AV system demands grow.

LinkLicense for Digital Signage

This upgrade enables the ShareLink Pro 1100 and ShareLink Pro 500 Wired and Wireless Presentation Systems to display web-based HTML content from digital signage providers such as Appspace, Carousel, Seenspire, and others, when users are not connected to the products. This signage content can be tailored to include audio and video information for current events, notices, weather, traffic, or other topics the administrator may create with their signage provider’s system. Once users connect to the ShareLink Pro to share content and collaborate, the signage content is removed but returns once all users disconnect. LinkLicense for Digital Signage allows customers to fully utilize their ShareLink Pro display screens for messaging and background imagery when they are not being used for presentations and collaboration.

LinkLicense for Digital Signage also enables ShareLink Pro Wired and Wireless Presentation Systems to decode H.264‑based streams from select Extron streaming products or other available live streams. These video streams can originate from Extron SME and SMP encoders and streaming media processors or can originate from any live H.264 stream available on the network. This LinkLicense® also supports Expo Mode on the ShareLink Pro 1100 and ShareLink Pro 500 to temporarily replace the ShareLink Pro welcome screens or BYOD shared content with H.264 streams, videos, or image content for special events or unique signage needs.

Unique Features
  • Displays digital signage content on the ShareLink Pro when users are not connected or sharing content – Allows displays to be used for information, as well as presentation or collaboration.
  • Increases utilization of dark display screens with continuous visual content — This eliminates the need for an external media player or additional displays to provide content.
  • Provides current information and content tailored to user needs via centralized digital signage providers — Centralized signage providers such as Appspace, Carousel, Seenspire, and others, make it easy to supply consistent information across many rooms or spaces.
  • H.264 Streaming Signage feature displays H.264 content on the ShareLink Pro when users are not connected or sharing — Content from Extron SME and SMP encoders and streaming media processors can be selected as well as any H.264 live stream.
  • Expo Mode enables the ShareLink Pro to display dynamic content as an alternative to the welcome screens — Temporarily display H.264 streams, videos, or image content instead of BYOD shared content for unique events, announcements, or signage.

LinkLicense for Active Learning

In spaces where wireless sharing on multiple displays is needed, LinkLicense for Active Learning enables multiple ShareLink Pro 1100 Wired and Wireless Presentation Systems to display content between units. This is ideal in active learning rooms with multiple small groups working together and a central instructor station. LinkLicense for Active Learning will enable easy sharing among multiple displays for comparison or discussion between student groups or between the instructor and student groups. Display assignments can be controlled by an instructor using an optional touchpanel or touchpanel app interface.

Unique Features
  • Share content between multiple ShareLink Pro devices – Enables content on one ShareLink Pro 1100 display to be shown on other ShareLink Pro 1100 displays. This allows multiple ShareLink Pro devices in a space to share content for active learning spaces where wireless sharing on multiple displays is needed.
  • Ideal for active learning spaces
  • Saves equipment and installation costs — LinkLicense-enabled ShareLink Pro 1100 devices in an active learning space eliminate the need for hardwired AV cabling and equipment between student and instructor stations found in traditional AV installations.
