Magewell adds wireless screen sharing to USB Fusion device

Magewell has expanded the input source possibilities of its USB Fusion video capture and mixing hardware with support for wireless content sharing technologies.

The hardware and accompanying app let users combine cameras, wired or wireless screenshares, and media file sources into live presentations for streaming, live event production, online lectures, webinars, video conferencing and other applications.

The new capabilities will be featured in Magewell's USB Fusion demonstrations in booth C5031 at the 2023 NAB Show (April 16 to 19, Las Vegas) and in booth 2855 at InfoComm 2023 (June 14 to 16, Orlando, Florida).

USB Fusion enables producers and presenters to switch between multiple live and file-based sources, or to combine inputs in picture-in-picture or side-by-side layouts. The results can be captured into Windows, Mac or Linux software via the hardware's USB 3.0 interface or output over HDMI to a projector, display or downstream production equipment. On-device buttons and a browser-based web interface provide easy operation and configuration, while the free USB Fusion companion app for iOS and Android tablets offers expanded layout controls and advanced presentation tools ranging from playlists and recording to annotations and telestration.

USB Fusion now supports wireless casting protocols including AirPlay, Google Cast and Miracast, enabling easy sharing of content from Apple, Android, Windows, and Chromebook devices. Up to four simultaneous wireless sources can be combined in a screencast scene layout, which can then be switched with USB Fusion's dual 1080p60 HDMI inputs, USB webcam input, and media file sources.

The wireless sharing features will be available in an upcoming free firmware upgrade, planned for release later this month.
