KORTRIJK, Belgium, February 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Barco, a global leader in professional meeting room visualization, announces an important expansion of its wireless presentation and collaboration portfolio. The CS-100 and CSE-200 join the ClickShare portfolio, offering the freedom to better tailor the ClickShare unit to the meeting room's - and the participants' - needs. In this way, Barco's ClickShare portfolio spans the complete spectrum of meeting rooms, from small huddle rooms to large boardrooms.
Barco developed ClickShare to give presenters the confidence they need to be successful. With this wireless presentation and collaboration system, 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. ClickShare's most prominent advantage is the use of Buttons - USB-powered devices users plug into their PC or Mac. With a simple click, this Button wirelessly transmits the content from the laptop to the large meeting room screen. Anyone - including guests - can share right away, without the need for training. With the ClickShare App, users can also share content from their mobile phones or tablets.
A ClickShare for every meeting room
With the release of the CS-100, Barco offers the first ClickShare unit designed for small meeting and huddle rooms where sharing is a basic need. This unit gives presenters the confidence they need to be successful: the assurance that no technical hiccup will hinder their presentation. The CS-100 is a stand-alone model with an HDMI output, that allows up to 8 users to connect and with one user sharing at a time.
This can either be done using the ClickShare Button, or the ClickShare App. 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.
The CSE-200 has been developed for enterprise rollouts which require enhanced security features, a wider range of connectivity options including AirPlay support, or central management. This unit can be integrated into the company network, enabling remote management. Two users can share on screen at the same time - either via ClickShare Buttons, the ClickShare App, or a combination of the two. The CSE-200 is ideal for standard meeting rooms, creating a perfect environment to spark creativity. For user convenience, security features of the CSE-200 can be set to one of three predefined levels, depending on the company's policies and needs. Last but not least, the device's API also makes integration into the company network a lot easier.
Plug into simplicity - tap into amazing
"The CS-100 and CSE-200 are two important additions to the ClickShare product portfolio, greatly expanding our market reach," says Jan Willem Brands, VP Collaboration at Barco. "Joining the CSC-1, which was optimized for high-profile meeting rooms and boardrooms, allowing 4 users to share simultaneously and to connect screens with UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution, Barco now offers a ClickShare model that fits any meeting room, from small huddle room to boardroom. The new tagline (Plug into simplicity - tap into amazing) sums up the product's main benefits: a very simple to use solution that brings never-seen value to the users. The CS-100 and CSE-200 now complete our portfolio and will contribute to further writing ClickShare's success story."
The CS-100 and CSE-200 units will have their trade show premiere at the Barco booth at ISE (Amsterdam, 9-12 February, booth 11-F100). Join us there for more information and hands-on tests.
