Magewell Adds Wireless Screen Sharing Inputs to USB Fusion Video Capture and Mixing Device

prnewswire | April 06, 2023

Magewell has dramatically expanded the input source possibilities of its exceptionally flexible USB Fusion video capture and mixing hardware with new support for popular wireless content sharing technologies. The award-winning hardware and accompanying app let users easily combine cameras, wired or wireless screenshares, and media file sources into visually compelling 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 popular 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. "Input flexibility is one of USB Fusion's key benefits, and the addition of wireless sharing support extends this advantage even further," said Nick Ma, CEO and CTO of Magewell. "The wireless input capabilities are ideal for use cases ranging from incorporating mobile device screens into live event productions, to educational presentations combining an instructor with multiple student contributors." The wireless sharing features will be available in an upcoming free firmware upgrade, planned for release later this month. This update marks the third significant USB Fusion feature expansion in the past few months, joining other recent enhancements including user-defined mapping of scene layouts to on-device buttons; enhanced graphics tools; the ability to control PowerPoint presentations on a connected computer; scheduled recording; ISO recording; Google Drive integration and more.

Cradlepoint Acquires Ericom and its Cloud-Based Enterprise Security Solution

globenewswire | April 05, 2023

Cradlepoint, part of Ericsson announced today that it has acquired Israel-based Ericom Software and their advanced enterprise cloud security platform to solidify Cradlepoint’s SASE and zero trust offerings for hybrid 5G and wireline environments. The Ericom acquisition is a key part of Cradlepoint’s strategy of building a full-stack enterprise security service optimized for 5G. Ericom’s zero trust and cloud-based security solutions will form the basis of the new Cradlepoint NetCloud Threat Defense cloud service, expanding the company’s mobile-capable and router-integrated SASE and zero trust portfolio of solutions for fixed-site, remote worker, in-vehicle and IoT use cases. “Networking and security are rapidly merging within the enterprise, and the cloud is increasingly leveraged as the preferred SASE delivery mechanism,” said Will Townsend, vice president and principal analyst of networking and security at Moor Insights & Strategy. “Cradlepoint's acquisition of Ericom and its zero trust security capabilities should position the company well to capitalize, especially in organizations considering a 5G-centric deployment approach.” Ericom leveraged its deep expertise in remote access and cloud-delivered web security technologies to develop its security solution. It provides organizations with a broad set of integrated security controls aligned with providing the security aspects of Gartner’s Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) framework, including secure web gateway (SWG), remote browser isolation (RBI), cloud access security broker (CASB), zero-trust network access (ZTNA), and more. The cloud-based security solution is delivered on a high-availability and distributed cloud network deployed across various tier-1 cloud infrastructure partners, giving it a global presence and the ability to enforce security policies close to users and the data and applications they need to access. “The combination of Cradlepoint’s expertise in enterprise networking and Ericom’s innovative SSE and zero trust security solutions will create a powerful capability to meet the increasing demand for cloud-based secure network solutions,” said David Canellos, CEO of Ericom. “The acquisition enhances our ability to meet the cybersecurity needs of global enterprises as they accelerate their rapid adoption of 5G technologies. We look forward to this exciting new chapter and its opportunities.” Cradlepoint is a leader in 5G for business solutions and is a main driver of Ericsson’s enterprise aspirations. Its SD-WAN and security strategy is based on the belief that enterprises will not deploy multiple vendor solutions to address their wireless and wireline network infrastructures. As a result, Cradlepoint will offer the NetCloud Threat Defense cloud service built to interoperate with the company’s recently announced NetCloud Exchange SD-WAN offering. While optimized for 5G, NetCloud Threat Defense will be for enterprise-wide deployment across any infrastructure. “Cradlepoint is pleased to welcome Ericom and its advanced, cloud-based security and zero trust products and technology to our family of enterprise wireless solutions,” said George Mulhern, CEO of Cradlepoint and SVP of Ericsson’s Enterprise Wireless Solutions group. “We can now deliver a comprehensive SD-WAN and SASE solution for Wireless WAN and private cellular networking, leveraging 5G while addressing the wireline needs of enterprise customers.” About Cradlepoint Cradlepoint enables the freedom to connect people, places, and things that drive more experiences, more ways to work, and better business results — anywhere. The company is a pioneer in Wireless WAN, offering advanced 4G and 5G routers and adapters — controlled through Cradlepoint NetCloud™.
