Barco Ships New ClickShare CSE-800

Launched at this year’s Integrated Systems Europe in Amsterdam, the new Barco CSE-800 is now shipping. Designed for large meeting rooms seating 15 people and up, the CSE-800 is, like eat current generation of ClickShare products, a wireless BYOD system but it is different in that it has dual 4K DCI outputs (4096×2160).

The CSE-200 won our ‘Best of ISE award’ in the category ‘Best New Wireless System Product’ here by rAVe.

The CSE-800 allows up to eight users’ screens to be shown on two 4K displays simultaneously (while up to 64 can be connected). And, this version of the ClickShare is the first to offer speaker/instructor moderation, whiteboarding and annotation. The outputs to the displays are both HDMI and the frame-rate is 30 fps.

The CSE-800 can be connected to and managed via the network using WPA2-PSK in stand alone mode or WPA2-PSK or IEEE 802.1X using the ClickShare Button in network integration mode. And, it’s compatible with IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n and IEEE 802.15.1 networks working on both the 2.4 GHZ and 5 GHz frequency spectrum. Connections are via 2x Ethernet LAN.

The CSE-800 also has two USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports on the back and on the front and audio analog line out and in on mini jack socket (3.5 millimeter), digital S/PDIF connectors.

Here are all the tech specs.
