Barco, Crestron Enter Global Patent License Agreement for BYOM Market Growth
Barco and Crestron have entered into a global patent license agreement earlier this year. This enables Crestron to utilize some of Barco’s ClickShare patents for Crestron’s own collaboration solutions, including AirMedia wireless conferencing and presentation systems.
Barco will continue to develop collaboration technologies but the point of the agreement between Barco and Crestron is to further spur the growth of the BYOM market, with each company investing in technology that enables collaboration with a simple experience for employees.
Barco has obtained more than 50 patents in major jurisdictions like E.U., U.S. and China. The patents cover a broad range of innovative wireless presentation and conferencing features, underlining ClickShare’s simplicity and ease of use. Barco continues to monitor the wireless presentation and conferencing market closely. The company has built a strong track record in enforcing its intellectual property rights against companies copying ClickShare’s unique features.
