Kortrijk, Belgium, 22 November 2013 – Barco, a leader in professional meeting room visualization and collaboration systems, introduces the new CSM Base Unit for its ClickShare collaboration and presentation system. ClickShare now comes in two flavors – the new CSM Base Unit and the original full-featured CSC Base Unit – so that any meeting room can benefit from the ClickShare experience.
Since its introduction, ClickShare has changed the meeting culture of a large number of professionals around the world. By enabling all participants to share their content on the central meeting room screen at the click of a button, ClickShare ensures that everyone is involved more intensely in the decision-making process. Coupling extreme simplicity with an unmatched user experience, everybody who has used ClickShare is immediately hooked.
ClickShare for the standard meeting room
The new CSM Base Unit offers the core ClickShare experience at a price of 1750 EUR. This means that any meeting room, regardless of its capacity, can be fitted with a ClickShare system. The new CSM Base Unit displays images up to Full HD resolution – via its HDMI or VGA output – and is fully compatible with both the ClickShare Button and the free apps for iOS and Android. Only one user can share on-screen at a time, but eight Buttons can be connected wirelessly to the base unit, ready to share. A set consists of the CSM Base Unit and two ClickShare Buttons.
What if you need more?
For users who need higher resolution or a double screen setup, or want multiple users on the central screen at the same time, Barco recommends the current CSC Base Unit. Designed for high-profile meeting rooms, boardrooms and conference rooms, this system offers a full set of features to deliver a more complete ClickShare collaboration experience. Among other features, the CSC can drive two separate screens simultaneously, as well as support special output resolution, including panoramic composition (2560 x 1080). Up to four people can share content on-screen at the same time, while 64 Buttons can be ready to share.
A ClickShare for every meeting room
“For the introduction of the CSM Base Unit we’ve made extensive use of the capabilities of AWIND, the Taiwanese technology-leader that Barco acquired earlier this year,” says Guy Coen, General Manager Collaboration. “This new base unit combines the many years of experience of both design teams to offer a new ClickShare experience. As it is within most meeting room budgets, a whole new range of professionals will discover ClickShare, making the system an essential part of any meeting room’s equipment.”
The CSM is now shipping in Europe and North America.
