Touch redirect works when you have connected your Windows 10 laptop to the Webex Board with an HDMI cable and a USB-C cable. It’s well suited for tasks that involve drag and drop, drawing programs, and maps.

Touch redirect is initially only available when you’re not in a call.

The feature is tested and verified with Windows 10. Basic functionality should also work with another OS.


Touch redirect is only available on Webex Board 55S, Webex Board 70S, and Webex Board 85S.

Limitations

  • If you accept a call while using touch redirect, the connection will automatically be turned off. To continue touch redirect after the call, you must connect the cables again.

  • When you use touch redirect, you can’t use annotation on the screen you’re sharing.

  • Volume control on the Webex Board isn’t available when touch redirect is in use. Use the volume control from your laptop.

  • If the Webex Board has Touch 10 controller connected, you can’t move your self-view while a USB-C cable is connected to the board.

  • Touch redirect isn’t available with Companion Mode.
