How much can the air take?

ClickShare wireless presentation and collaboration system
Wireless transmission is fantastic. Because let's face it: nobody likes cables (except if you are a cable manufacturer of course). But even the air has its limitations.

Hot in hospitality: business meetings!

Business travel: it remains the subject of many discussions. On the one hand, some people claim that modern means of communication will make it less and less useful, eliminating the principle in a few years. On the other hand we have the facts: despite the quite excellent alternatives, business travel is still increasing! This is probably because people still prefer to meet face-to-face with their customers or colleagues, and because business is becoming even more globally. Business hotels are the hubs of this phenomenon, because more and more, meetings are held on the premises of the hotel. The challenge of hotels is therefore not to attract business people, but to attract meetings…

Did you reach collaboration-nirvana yet?

ClickShare wireless presentation and collaboration system
78% of business leaders want people to collaborate more efficiently. That was an interesting statistic in a survey we did last year. It’s a very large group of people we can enlighten with our meeting room collaboration products (mainly our wireless ClickShare solution). But let’s reverse things: there are also 22% of business leaders that DON’T want their people to collaborate more efficiently? Now isn’t that noteworthy as well?

How much 'personal space' does a projection screen need?

EN57 lens mounted onto projector
Chances are high that you associate a projector with a certain throw distance. When thinking about the place you want to position/hang your new projector, you most likely will calculate a substantial distance between the projector and the screen. This can be logical, but also a nuisance. For example in rear-projection systems, this distance is in most cases very disturbing. The solution? Short throw lenses!

Let's talk about specs

Specs. They are an important part of any product description and nobody would ever think about omitting them. But what do they really tell? They say how much light a projector can produce. How big the difference between the darkest black and the lightest white is. What type of light source the device uses. All not unimportant, for example if you want to see if a particular projector suits the lighting conditions of your meeting room. But what do you really know about projected images? Right: absolutely nothing!
