Flexible Sharing & Increased Connectivity: It’s All Inside the Montage January Update.

20th January 2021

This post is written by Julie Adams, a Communication & Content Specialist at DisplayNote.

A new year, for many, often means focusing on improvement; self-improvement, improvement in our jobs, improvement in our focus for the year. This usually means finding a new solution to help us achieve these goals - a new diary, a new blender, a new piece of software. But more often than not, the answer is already there, and it’s not an entirely new solution; it’s a small change to something we’re already doing — an improvement in our approach.

Over the past few months, we used your feedback and internal research to identify ways to make Montage even better. We’re happy to introduce Montage 4.2.3 to you (let’s call it the Montage January update), packed with new features and improvements, so you get even more out of your collaboration sessions.

A No-Fuss Overview of the Montage January Update

  • Floating ID function for screen sharing without interruptions
  • New DisplayNote App for iPad
  • Improved mobile functionality


And Here’s the Extended Edition (with commentary)

Keep the flow with Floating ID

You asked, and we listened. With the new Floating ID function, you have the freedom to use your touch screen and wirelessly share devices at the same time.

Montage’s intelligent design gives you the duality to choose how you work while casting at the same time. Simply start a Montage session, hit minimize or press the screen's home button (on android). The session ID stays on screen while you’re working - be it using the interactive whiteboard, teaching apps, or browsing. You decide.

This new function means anyone in the room can share their screen without interrupting the flow of the lesson or meeting taking place. And with full support for touch events, you get to choose the best place to position the session ID on your screen.

More ways to connect with the DisplayNote App for iPad

BYOD enabled environments have become the new standard in education and businesses. With students and employees relying on personal devices to share their work, ideas, and presentations, wireless collaboration has never been more essential. We’ve added a brand new DisplayNote app for iPad to give you more ways to connect and share your screen than ever before.

Like DisplayNote's iPhone app, iPad users don't need to worry about what network they're on when it comes to mirroring - cross-network mirroring comes as standard.

More than just casting

Users can view what's being presented and annotate, share files - plus much more. It's the perfect tool if you use iPads in your classroom or meeting room.

Improved Mobile Functionality

We’ve been working hard on fixes and improvements to our mobile app. You’ll notice a smoother, more stable experience all around.

These features are free for all users; you'll see a prompt to updates in your version of the software.
