What’s more, we are expanding distribution in countries like Japan and China to further fuel our growth.

Innovation that matters

Today ClickShare is more alive than ever, winning five awards so far in 2017, totaling 25 awards since its launch. In February Barco expanded the ClickShare offering with a new flagship model, the CSE-800: the perfect, high-end companion to current models for huddle rooms and corporate meeting rooms. The product was developed upon the request of customers to fulfil their need for smooth collaboration in boardrooms and conference rooms. The CSE-800 complements the top-range portfolio, making ClickShare one of the only players in the field to match the needs of every type of meeting room. 

Wainhouse research reviewed the brand new CSE-800 features immediately after its launch: “The CSE-800 offers a compelling combination of flexibility, usability, and performance. For those seeking an exceptional, enterprise-ready, wireless presentation experience, it will not disappoint.”

Powerful presentation technologyDigital Divide study

The ClickShare solution, well-known for its ease of use, reliability and intuitiveness, continues to address the needs of many companies struggling with meeting room technology. As the recent survey conducted by Vanson Bourne and Barco on ”The Workplace Digital” divide confirms, presentation issues can affect the reputation of a company, workforce productivity and employee morale. With 7 in 10 of IT respondents reporting that presentation tech issues cause disputes between colleagues over who is to blame, resulting in postponed or cancelled presentations (75 %), and potential damage to business reputations (50 %). By harnessing the power of a straightforward technology like ClickShare, presentation issues can be a thing of the past, enabling IT and Facility managers to drive efficiencies across the business in the brightest, simplest and most productive way.
