New user interface (v1.21 only)

- Disk encryption is introduced, enabling the Cynap/Cynap Core SSD to be encrypted if required.
- Firmware updates are now signed, which prevents unsigned unofficial firmware versions from being installed.
- To prevent against brute-force attacks on the administrator password, the system will be locked after 20 unsuccessful attempts.
Added support for Panopto video platform
- Additional recording functionality for vSolution Cynap systems now enables them to act as a capture agent for the Panopto platform. Working in partnership with Panopto engineers, the WolfVision team has extended the existing Capture feature pack, which after activation, enables recordings made locally on Cynap to be pushed either automatically or manually to Panopto's video content management system.
- The Miracast screen mirroring protocol is extended to enable multiple devices to screen share at the same time (max. 2 on Cynap Core, max. 4 on Cynap).
- Miracast stability and performance is improved, and latency is reduced.
- Miracast PIN function is now available in order to moderate screen sharing
Native support for Touchback control
- It's now possible to use a touchscreen monitor to control a laptop wirelessly during a Cynap session. This function is now native, and does not require installation of any apps.
Access Point settings
- Access Point settings are now switched on by default, enabling initial settings to be performed.
Log file generation
- The Cynap/Cynap Core 'About' section now includes the possibility to generate a log file.
Renaming of recorded files
- On starting a recording, there is now an option to rename the recorded file (this feature has to be enabled in the settings before it can be used).
Support for PowerPoint wireless clickers
- For presenters who prefer to use a wireless USB clicker when presenting using PowerPoint, support is now provided for these devices when presenting on-screen using Cynap.
