Very easy to use system that has a very good image transmission.

General information

The InstaShow Presentation System consists of the host (the receiver) and 2 buttons (the transmitters). The system is expandable to 16 buttons. No additional software is required for use. Each person can easily mirror the screen content of his computer to a larger screen at the touch of a button.

The image transfer is started with a simple push of a button.
The image transfer is started with a simple push of a button.

The device is primarily intended for use in business environments.

Setup

The host is connected with an HDMI cable to a TV or beamer and powered via Micro-USB to USB cable. This can be done via a USB output of the device or via the included power adapter and a power outlet. The connection of the buttons follows the same principle, so you have to use 2 ports of your computer. (If you have a modern computer with USB-C, you might be interested in the InstaShow Type - C, for whose button only a single USB-C port is required.)

The setup is, as announced by the manufacturer, absolutely uncomplicated and foolproof. You plug the receiver and transmitter into their respective devices, hold down the 'host-' and 'button'-buttons for 5 seconds one after the other and they are connected.

Range

The connection between transmitter and receiver works via WIFI 802.1 1ac.

In our test office, I tested the range across the room. The video, which I played on my laptop for the test, only began to falter slightly on the TV after 15 meters.

Picture and sound quality

The image quality is fantastic. In video mode, Full HD videos are transmitted at a rate of 60 fps. Colours and contrasts do not look any different than when you transfer movies or presentations with a conventional HDMI cable.

The sound is transferred in good stereo quality and is synchronized with the picture being played.

Delay

A slight delay between the transmitter and receiver cannot be completely avoided. The InstaShow Presentation System has a very fast transmission time with a delay of 0.17 s on the TV and 0.1 s on the computer screen. You will notice a slight latency when moving the mouse cursor, but it is so minimal that it didn't bother me when navigating the mouse. Only for video games, the delay could be a disadvantage. However, since the system was not designed for video games, but for presentations, this cannot really cause minus points in the rating of this system. However, there is still room for improvement in latency.

Compatibility

The system is compatible with any receiver with HDMI connection. The transmitter requires a USB output to provide video output. No additional software is required as the InstaShow Presentation System is actually a "Plug & Play" product.

The InstaShow buttons of the HDMI and the Type-C version can be connected to the same host.

The InstaShow HDMI and the InstaShow Type - C buttons can be simultaneously connected to the host.

Security

The system works as simple as an HDMI cable, no additional software is installed. The transmission is secured by 128-bit WPA2 encryption. According to the manufacturer, the devices work completely hardware-based, which ensures a low hack susceptibility.

Does InstaShow need to be connected to the Internet?

No, you don't need an Internet connection to use InstaShow. However, it is possible to set up a connection via the W-Lan to control the host even if it is mounted on the ceiling of the beamer, for example, and is therefore difficult to reach.
