Barco, the global leader in professional solutions for meeting room visualization and collaboration, announces a major software update to its ClickShare product line, which includes smart meeting streams for wireless conferencing. Taking ClickShare to the next level of simplicity, the software update introduces a set of features that make hybrid laptop hosting an extremely intuitive experience. No hassle, no stress.
Designed for better hybrid encounters
The frequency and number of meetings is constantly increasing over the years, which makes starting and conducting effective meetings a business priority for many companies. Barco recognizes this need and launches a simplified ClickShare user experience for Button and App that makes hybrid meetings from a laptop as easy as making a phone call.
With a revolutionary set of features for better meeting flow, ClickShare responds to the call for more engagement in meetings and brings more confidence to meeting hosts and users. Our intent-based technology makes meetings smarter and more intuitive, reducing stress for participants, solving four of the most common hybrid meeting challenges: powering the boardroom, connecting the laptop to audio and video devices in the room, join a calendar meeting and track content and people while hosting a hybrid meeting room meeting.
“The simplicity and ease of use of ClickShare, our agnostic wireless room system, has always been inspired by customer needs. And in today’s hybrid culture of meetings, new challenges have emerged, especially for remote users. Our latest study showed that almost 1 in 3 struggle to be heard, and 35% have problems with full participation in hybrid meetings. We knew we could deal with hot issues such as dealing with injustice and disengagement with our technology, ”said Michael Vanderheren, Barco’s Director of Product Management.
Meet with confidence and justice
ClickShare’s intelligent meeting streams feature PresentSense, HostFlow, One-Click-Join, and ConferenceView to fully automate and enrich the meeting flow for in-room users, making each hybrid meeting an extremely intuitive, stress-free experience.
As users enter the boardroom with their laptop, ClickShare automatically connects to the boardroom using PresentSense ultrasonic proximity detection. S HostFlow users can start a conference from their laptop with ease, as the ClickShare app automatically directs them as a host or meeting participant. And with just one click (Join with one click), users can start the meeting from their personal calendar.
Finally, the new one ConferenceView the feature solves the biggest pain of today’s hybrid meetings: keeping the review as the host of the meeting. With ConferenceView you can host the meeting from your laptop, share your presentation and watch both the content and the video of the participants on the boardroom display, side by side, without the need for dual screen setup.
What’s more, as a meeting host, you can choose to share a full screen or just an app window, while keeping your laptop screen private for taking notes. So when you decide to bring your own device, your laptop is not only used for hosting video calls, and as a host you enjoy the flexibility to work as you prefer.
A wealth of integration options
Barco enriches ClickShare integration capabilities with digital signs, offering companies an easy-to-use and accessible solution for broadcasting general or personalized information to guests and employees in the workplace, such as welcome messages, news, social broadcasts, personalized and branded content. By integrating ClickShare signs, customers can maximize their investment in boardroom technology and increase the return on investment at their meeting places. In recent weeks, digital sign partners Signagelive, Seenspire and Korbyt have joined the ClickShare alliance program, which provides additional integration opportunities.
“We are making a big leap this spring. Every step of our design process is focused on creating more flow, commitment and interoperability for customers. With intuitive, automated meeting streams, we help clients tackle the challenges faced by participants in remote meetings with inequality in hybrid meetings. The new sign integration options really make ClickShare the state-of-the-art agnostic room solution that delivers superior overall total value for a sustainable, sustainable and intelligent workplace, ”concludes Michael Vanderheren.
