I have confirmed that I can pair the Share and ICON.
Is there any information that clearly explains the advantage of pairing?
Pairing a Share to an Icon will let you take advantage our next phase of integrations we will be announcing very soon, possibly this week. Our new white-boarding and screen-share integrations will need this pairing in order to fully function. A whole new release will be announced and outline all the new capabilities that will be available. Stay tuned!!
Thank you, I am looking forward to it!
Hi, I've also paired one of our demo Shares and I'm looking forward to news on the advantages of this pairing. At this moment it appears to do nothing besides discover the Icon and pair to it. Any news on this or any ETA for these to arrive?
Pairing a Share to an Icon is important if you are using the ScreenCloud digital signage add-on. The pairing is how we are able to know if you are in a call or not and when we should display digital signage.
In the next few weeks we will be releasing a number of updates to Share and Icon 700 and Icon 300 that will improve the Share experience greatly if it is paired to an Icon 700 or Icon 300. After this release we will be able to control what information is shown to the far-end during a call. After this release we will only show the Share pairing code locally and not display the code to the far end when in a call. Additionally, pressing the present button on the Phone HD in a call will display the Share home screen with the URL for how to share, but will only show this locally and not to the far end.
Thanks for your quick reply. Is that functionality of hiding the Share info to the remote party limited to the 300 and 700 solely? Any plans to deliver that on the 400, 450 and 600s? I have my Share paired to an Icon 450 that we have in one of our showrooms.
We are planning to deliver this same functionality on Icons 400, 450, 600 and 800. But will be a part of a separate Share release and Icon release for those systems. We don't have a release date set for those systems, but should be in a couple of months.
That is great news, thank you for the insight on the Share roadmap, Amanda.
