The Brightlink 595wi is capable of using touch in two modes, PC Interactive and PC Free Annotation. To switch between these two modes, press “Mode” on the Crestron panel.
PC Interactive Mode
With the use of a standard USB printer cable, the presenter can take control of their laptop or desktop computer while standing at the board. This mode is useful for minimizing back and forth travel between screen and computer. The presenter can navigate their computer with ease or go through their presentation with out loosing the engagement of their audience.
This function will not work through Wireless Network Projection
