IT managers now have the control over the device they require to deploy a wireless display solution with confidence.

Now, with the launch of Intel Pro WiDi and ScreenBeam Pro Business Edition, we're excited to give these user groups the critical business-class security and manageability features they require," said Dean Chang, President and CEO at Actiontec.
