(Media-Newswire.com) - Beijing, China, 15 January 2013 – Barco, a world leader in visualization solutions, is proud to announce the launch of ClickShare in China. ClickShare is a solution that solves some very recognizable issues commonly experienced in meeting rooms by millions of people worldwide. This ‘one click wonder’ not only helps the presenter get the presentation on-screen in a second, but it also allows the other people in the meeting to participate more actively. The result is enhanced meeting efficiency and better decision-making. More than 100 people – including visualization industry experts, Barco’s partners, and the press – were invited to join today’s official launch of ClickShare in China, and to have a complete demonstration of the system to understand its features and functionalities and its key role in enhancing the effectiveness of meetings.
Collaborate in style
A standard ClickShare set-up consists of four USB devices ( the ‘ClickShare Buttons’ ), a storage basket ( the ‘ClickShare Tray’ ) for neatly storing the Buttons when they’re not in use, and a Base Unit. The Base Unit has a fixed connection to the meeting room’s AV system and handles all processing. To put their presentation on the large meeting room screen, users simply connect a Button to their PC or MAC, click it … and immediately their desktop is transferred wirelessly to the large visualization system. What’s more, ClickShare doesn’t interfere with the laptop’s resolution, and it automatically optimizes the display on the meetng room screen. A ClickShare Base Unit supports the connection of up to 25 users and allows 4 users to display their presentation contents on the screen simultaneously.
Mr. Karl Reynders, Barco’s Vice President Sales & Marketing Greater China, commented: "We are very pleased that ClickShare has received such good feedback worldwide. A recent ClickShare users survey indicates that 93% of the respondents state that the product vastly improves meeting efficiency. I believe that our Chinese partners will soon find it truly helpful to millions of users every day – freeing them from the previous tedious method of operation, allowing more participants to share different information, and really transforming meeting collaboration."
"We were very impressed with the easy set-up and operation of the unit, which proved to be a true out-of-the-box solution,” a user from a Forbes 500 global financial services firm commented after the trials. “ClickShare is a great tool for meeting scenarios in which users desire to display multiple graphics simultaneously – and fortunately, operating ClickShare is simple and intuitive.”
High demand outlook in China
As indicated in the recently released “2012 China Conference Blue Book”: each year, conference meetings receives over 100 million people attendance annually, with an average annual growth rate of 20%. This has brought a huge demand for conferencing equipment, which has also spawned a huge market demand.
Nie Weigang, Sales Director of Barco Projectors for Greater China, said that the concept of ClickShare is to encourage meeting collaboration and provide an excellent user experience. “Barco is very proud to launch this product today in China – we really believe ClickShare will enhance the relationship with more business partners, strengthening Barco’s leading position in the Corporate AV market.”
