Successful meetings are all about confidence – confidence in ideas, confidence in presentations, but also confidence in the meeting room technology. It is the last aspect which Barco, a professional visualization and networking solutions, has been bolstering with ClickShare CS-100. The innovative wireless presentation system has been redefining the corporate meeting room experience for Indian businesses, addressing major pain points such as meeting room productivity through cutting-edge technology. Users can simply share what’s on their laptop or mobile device, on the presentation screen. No cables, no set-up, no waiting to join in.
A truly BYOD-led solution which is extremely easy to deploy and use, CS-100 brings the ClickShare experience to meeting rooms, where sharing content from a laptop or mobile device is a basic need. Anyone – including guests – can connect with one click and share right away, without the need for any training. Users simply plug a USB-powered device – the ClickShare Button – into their PC or Mac and click the button to get the content from their laptop on the large meeting room screen (display or projector). With the ClickShare App, users can also share content from their mobile phones or tablets. This enables seamless and convenient sharing of information during meetings, allowing for better business productivity for both large corporate players as well as SMBs. The CS-100 is a stand-alone model with an HDMI output that allows up to 8 users to connect, with one user sharing at a time. The CS-100 includes the standard ClickShare security features including encryption, login management, https and the possibility to hide the SSID of the Base Unit’s wireless network.
Speaking on the announcement, Ramya Chatterjee, Director Sales – Entertainment & Visualization of South Asian Region, Barco Electronic Systems said, “Latest studies indicate that nearly 46% professionals feel that business meetings are a waste of time and negatively impact productivity. This perception is largely fueled by the inherent inefficiencies of legacy display solutions, which not only take a lot of time to set up, but also restrict information flow between various participants. Our innovative wireless collaboration solution, ClickShare CS-100, is aimed at addressing this concern. By providing a single touch-point solution, we are not only facilitating better user experience, but also significantly improving meeting room productivity for Indian businesses.”
Working on different frequencies and channels, Barco’s CS-100 addresses several major concerns caused due to outdated cable-based connectivity for projection and display. Its wireless functionality means that malfunctioning wires do not waste critical meeting time, while its hassle-free installation does not require elaborate and time-consuming revamping of the entire meeting room. The innovative solution has already received impressive reception globally, thanks to its differentiated approach, and has reiterated Barco’s position as the foremost innovator in the enterprise collaboration space. The company is currently promoting it in India through its extensive channel network. Barco is also encouraging the appointment of new IT Channel partners who can add value to its channel ecosystem by taking this innovative product to players in the large Corporate and SME segments.
