Barco announced today that it’s sold over 100,000 of its ClickShare wireless presentation and collaboration systems – celebrating the milestone with rAVe’s own Gary Kayye, who helped Barco launch it three years ago. (Watch the announcement party video shot at ISE here.)
Barco introduced ClickShare to the market over three years ago to enable better collaboration and easier sharing in meeting rooms. The innovative product created immediate excitement as it was the first product to enable content from laptops and mobile devices to be shared on the central meeting room display it a really simple way — wirelessly (without software). By introducing the ClickShare Button, which allows the presenter to display content on the central screen with just one click, the system set itself apart from other systems design approaches for small rooms. And, since ClickShare, many companies have tried to emulate the wireless-presentation product’s simplicity, but none have garnered as much success.
In the past three years, the system’s popularity — and sales — have gradually taken off. “ClickShare is a system users need to feel for themselves to be truly convinced,” Jan Willem Brands, VP Collaboration at Barco, explains. “When they click that button for the first time − and experience how easy it really is − people realize what they’ve been missing. So, word of mouth has become a very strong factor in ClickShare’s conquest of the world’s meeting rooms.”
The recent release of the CS-100 and CSE-200, two new units in the ClickShare product family which specifically target the small and medium-sized meeting rooms market, again expands the reach of Barco’s ClickShare offering. These cost-effective solutions join the CSM-1 and the fully featured CSC-1 models, forming a portfolio that meets the needs of every type of meeting room.
