Quicklaunch tabbed interface is designed to work with smaller HDMI or USB touch screens known as consoles. Consoles are usually on the meeting room table but can also be placed beside the monitor.  It provides one-touch capabilities to join meetings and launch action tiles. Typically, Quicklaunch is setup to display on the console at all times (fixed mode) with the meetings and applications starting on the ‘Big Display’ at the front of the room.


Consoles come with or without USB Capture Cards that can be used in conjunction with Quicklaunch for HDMI wired screen sharing.


To setup a console display:

  1. Setup Microsoft Windows
  2. Setup in Quicklaunch
