Delivering on its promise to provide dealers and end-users with a new generation of ProAV solutions that help them connect faster and more reliably to the Internet in virtually any presentation environment, Stampede Presentation Products, Inc. today announced the introduction of the wePresent™ WiPG Wireless Interactive Presentation Gateway from Rockwall, Texas based wePresent USA, Inc. According to Stampede President & COO Kevin Kelly, Stampede has been tapped to distribute the new presentation platform in the United States, Canada, and Latin America.

“Conference rooms, meeting rooms, board rooms, classrooms and lecture halls are where educators and executives connect, communicate, and collaborate,” Kelly said today. “Unfortunately giving a presentation in these environments sometimes becomes a guessing game of which cable to use, which input button to push, or how to solve poor resolution issues with incompatible equipment — causing frustration and stress that costs presenters time and money. With the wePresent WiPG 1080p wireless presentation system, presenters can now overcome these challenges.” According to Cory Cannon, CEO of wePresentUSA, Inc., “Wireless technology is where the corporate AV industry is headed and wePresent has become the centerpiece of many ProAV dealers’ systems designs. Our mission is to help corporations, universities, and schools connect, create, and communicate their vision through innovative and cutting-edge IT & AV technologies. Our partnership with Stampede promises to bring this new technology to market across the US, Canada, and Latin America. Stampede has a history of helping to launch and educate the market with cutting-edge technology, and they are very excited to bring the WePresent WiPG-1000 and the WiPG-1500 to market.”

Available in two models (WiPG-1000 and WiPG-1500), wePresent is a powerful device that allows up to 64 users to wirelessly connect and take turns giving presentations to a display from any device, wirelessly in full 1080p HD. WePresent is compatible with any operating system, like Mac or PC, and supports wireless presentations from both iOS and Android smartphones or tablets. Users can also display up to four of these devices on-screen simultaneously.

In addition, wePresent is unique in its ability to act as a wireless access point, making it easier to allow guests to safely access the Internet without having to get a password to access a company’s internal LAN.

“The market need for a solution like wePresent is going to grow by leaps and bounds as two major trends continue to transform the presentation marketplace — The Internet of Things and Bring Your Own Device,” asserted Kelly. “Corporate executives and professional educators need a reliable solution for their conference rooms and classrooms that allows their staff to easily display a presentation wirelessly. The wePresent solution addresses this need with a powerful wireless presentation gateway that offers plug and play simplicity at a price that makes it easy to deploy company-wide in every classroom, meeting room and conference room. The entire Stampede sales team is excited to help bring this breakthrough presentation system to end-users in virtually all of the vertical markets our 11,000 dealers serve.”

Features of the wePresent system include:

  • The ability to wirelessly present from any device in 1080p: The wePresent WiPG systems allow instant 1080p wireless presentations to be given from any PC or Mac computer, as well as Windows Surface Pro PCs, iOS devices, Blackberry devices, and Android mobile platforms.
  • True Plug-and Play Simplicity: The wePresent system connects to any conference room TV or projector by HDMI or VGA, and immediately displays a customizable on-screen start menu with directions on how to connect your various devices.
  • Wireless Access Point: wePresent is also a wireless access point, which allows your guests to present directly to the device without routing their presentation through your network, and it safely allows them to access the internet without logging into your network.
  • More Features: Full 1080p HD resolution with secure enterprise-level WiFi encryption, plug-and-play touchscreen integration, on-screen annotation, blackboard annotation feature, and more.
