Sharing content has always been one of the most important parts of the collaboration process – it allows us to show each other what we’re working on in the way that best showcases what we’re trying to do. It also makes it easier to convey important information in a way that’s clear to see for all. With that said, content sharing also has its obstacles which need to be anticipated. Accommodating for those should ensure that your meetings can go off without a hitch. Barco’s Clickshare systems help you to simplify your meetings. Find out how you can utilize this ingenious collaborative technology to get more out of your group sessions and meetings by reading on below.
Barco Clickshare is a collaborative technology that streamlines our methods for sharing content in group situations. There are two different devices you’ll need to start using the system: the click button and the receiver. The button can be connected to your device, whether that’s a laptop, tablet, desktop or even mobile, whilst the receiver is connected to the screen, controlling the devices that are shown to the room. This simple yet effective system makes it so easy to instantly share content between users via a single communal screen with just a simple click – this cuts out distractions and puts the full focus onto the content being referenced and investigated at that time.
Why Would You Use It
The system would most likely be used during a meeting or group collaboration project, with different users all having pieces of content that they’d each like to share during the session. The Clickshare setup means that only the selected content will be displayed on the main screen, with the user simply clicking their share button to project their screen to the room. This can also be adapted to allow for split-screening between up to 8 users at once – this helps you to compare work side-by-side, or allow people to present different viewpoints and strategies at once. Provided that you have the correct screen, you’ll also be able to annotate and whiteboard around the content that’s being displayed, helping you to take a hands-on approach to change and improving the work on the screen.
What Different Packages Are There
We all know that different meetings will require a different setup – sometimes you’ll be having a quick brainstorming session between just a few people, whereas on other occasions it’ll be a company-wide conference with a huge number of participants. For obvious reasons, these different scenarios each require their own tech setup – smaller packages won’t be able to handle the demands of larger meetings, but larger packages maybe a little too much for quick sessions. Barco Clickshare comes with solutions that tailor to any company’s size, which means you can find the right layout for every situation you might be faced with. The smallest setup is the CS-100 Huddle; as the name suggests, this is designed for huddle meetings for smaller teams. With the CS-100, you’ll be able to utilize the iOS and Android apps, but only one user can have their laptop screen displayed on the larger communal screen at one time. This setup also doesn’t feature the annotation or whiteboarding facilities, so keep that in mind before choosing your setup.
Alternatively, the CSE-800 brings the Clickshare technology to the largest scale, giving you more power and the scope to collaborate in a much wider sense. The device features an extra HDMI port, annotation/whiteboarding capabilities, and also supports Chromecast and Airplay, offering more connectivity options for a truly seamless collaborative experience. The larger system can also incorporate sharing for up to 8 users at once, harnessing multiple users to allow as many people to collectively work together at the same time – this makes even the biggest group projects or meetings flow as effectively as you could wish them to.
Finding the right collaborative technology to use in your meetings can be a difficult process with a lot of trial and error, but once you’ve found that perfect system it’s a dream come true. Gone are the days of worrying about how you’re going to present content intelligently during your meetings – they’ve been replaced by peace of mind thanks to intelligent content sharing devices that allow you to keep meetings flowing, ensure that the content is visible, and make it easy to access and annotate for everyone involved.
