Resumee

The InstaShow presentation system Type-C is absolutely uncomplicated. With its high resolution and frame rate, it can really be seen. The design looks very professional and makes an extraordinarily good impression. A latency is noticeable but hardly disturbs the presentation. With the USB Type-C connection of the button, it combines power supply and information transmission in a single cable.

Pro

  • Simple
  • Smooth image
  • High resolution
  • The button needs only one cable

Cons

360° View

With the USB-C connection of the button a particularly uncomplicated system, which enables an excellent picture transmission possible.

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 starts with a simple push of a button.
The image transfer starts 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 button only requires a USB-C input on the transmitter. (If your computer does not have a USB-C output, you might be interested in the Instashow HDMI, for whose button an HDMI and a USB port are required).

The setup is, as announced by the manufacturer, completely uncomplicated and foolproof: You connect receiver and transmitter with their respective device, hold down the 'host' and the 'button'-button for 5 seconds one after the other to connect them.

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 only marginal that it did not bother me when navigating the mouse. Only for video games, the delay could be a disadvantage. However, since the system was not designed for this, but for presentations, this can't really cause minus points in the system's evaluation. However, there is still room for improvement in latency.

Compatibility

The system is compatible with any device with HDMI connection. 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 buttons of the HDMI and Type-C versions 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 simply as an HDMI cable: no additional software is installed. The transmission is secured by 128-bit WPA2 encryption. According to the manufacturer, the devices are completely hardware-based, which ensures 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.
