As the old adage goes, “Content is king”. And it’s true. When you’re in a meeting, the most effective way to share your knowledge and ideas is by sharing your content.

But accessing content in a shared meeting space can often be painful (think forgotten USBs, wireless connection issues, and incompatible cables).

...Introducing the Network Drive Shortcut.

We know that accessing your content is integral to good collaboration, so this new feature makes it quick and painless to get your files up on the display and share them with the room. No need to worry about downloads, your laptop battery, or even USBs.


A No-Fuss Overview of Network Drive Access

  • Access your network drive files on the meeting room display
  • Choose who can access the files in the meeting room
  • Customize your privacy settings


Access your files with ease

If your organization uses a network drive, access to your content with Launcher is now super easy and secure. You can walk into a meeting space and access the files you need on the meeting room display - without the need to use your own device. This makes it easy to present work, collaborate on shared projects and share your files with the room.

All your files will be available from the meeting room system via the network drive shortcut - so you can access your content in any meeting space with Launcher.


Flexible Security

Concerned about giving access to network drive content for anyone who steps into the meeting room? Worry not, as you can request a username and password whenever a user wants to access the network drive, or you can securely store those details. The choice is yours.
