Kortrijk, Belgium, 15 January 2014 – Barco, a leader in visualization and collaboration technology, is proud to introduce an option that couples two of its cutting-edge products: the ClickShare wireless presentation system, and the stylish Present projectors. With the new ‘ClickShare Inside’ option, the best in collaboration and the best in presentation become one. After integrating this option under the hood of their Present projector, users can wirelessly share their content on-screen, for true collaboration. As part of the ‘Intelligence Inside’ concept, ‘ClickShare Inside’ is the first in a row of optional modules to integrate future-proof and simple collaboration technology. The ‘ClickShare Inside’ option will be unveiled at the Barco booth at ISE in Amsterdam, from 4 to 6 February and will be commercially available as of Q2 2014. “With our new Corporate AV range, we are bringing style and simplicity into today’s meeting rooms. By combining two of our flagship products into one, we are expanding the collaboration functionality of our projectors and continue to lead the way for smart visual collaboration,” says Peter Pauwels, Director Market Development Corporate AV at Barco. “What’s more, when developing our brand-new Present projectors, we wanted them to be fully future-proof and to have ‘Intelligence Inside’. That’s why we’ve reserved some free space under their hood for extra connectivity and networking add-ons. ‘ClickShare Inside’ is the first optional module we are launching within this ‘Intelligence Inside’ concept.”
Easy integration for true collaboration The ‘ClickShare Inside’ option consists of a CSM Base Unit and an integration kit containing a bracket and three cables – HDMI, USB to RS-232, and a power cable – and can be nicely integrated and neatly hidden under the hood of the projector. Featuring a fully wireless connection, the ClickShare functionality is automatically activated once the projector is switched on. Meeting participants can then easily share their content on-screen by means of a unique ClickShare Button, or by installing the ClickShare Presenter app on their Android or iOS smartphone or tablet. And with the new update of the Button Manager software – available for download from 20 January onwards – users can easily pair their ClickShare Buttons via their laptop as well as via the Base Unit’s USB port.
Projection for every need With its comprehensive range of Corporate AV projectors, Barco has exactly the right projector for your meeting room, boardroom or auditorium. Whatever the size, purpose, or demands of the room, our three projector families – Present, Collaborate and Impress – will match your projection need. The largest family of the three, the Present range of single-chip DLP projectors, offers brightness levels from 5,000 up to 10,000 lumens. These unique button-free projectors can be set up as tabletop or ceiling devices with equal ease, and thanks to their stylish white design, they perfectly complement the office space they’re installed in.
Visual collaboration made easy Barco’s full portfolio of visualization and collaboration technology for Corporate AV meets the challenges of today’s changing work culture and focuses on improving efficiency and collaboration in meetings. Our single-chip and three-chip DLP projectors, ClickShare, and the free-standing OBLX structures have been specifically designed to encourage teamwork, operate intuitively, and let you do business without worrying about the technology.
