QSC and ClickShare enable seamless hybrid meetings in high-value meeting rooms


Whether you are collaborating in a meeting room or in a high-end boardroom, usability and interaction in hybrid meetings are essential. With Q-SYS from QSC and Barco’s ClickShare wireless conferencing and presentation solutions, you have everything you need to make seamless hybrid meetings possible in any of your high-value meeting spaces.

With Q-SYS and ClickShare Conference, you can Bring Your Own Meeting into high-value rooms and benefit from the performance of the rooms’ AV systems.

Q-SYS is a cloud-manageable audio, video and control platform which enables a seamless meeting experience in high-value spaces, from boardrooms and training rooms to flexible and immersive spaces. It offers integration of any modern conferencing platform via single USB connection, allowing for easy scalability of the familiar meeting experience into high-value spaces. Q-SYS is also an open platform, enabling a greater ecosystem of integration opportunities from Q-SYS Partners like Barco, to tailor a unique end-user experience in any space.

With Barco’s ClickShare wireless conferencing and presentation solution integrated into the greater Q-SYS ecosystem, flexibility and usability are enhanced even more. Combining Q-SYS and Barco ClickShare allows you to Bring Your Own Meeting (BYOM) into high-value spaces, and benefit from Q-SYS’ full-featured DSP processing and software-based control engine, along with a full portfolio of native Q-SYS audio, video and control products.

“With the increased demand for laptop-first (BYOM) solutions, our partnership with Barco brings easy wireless video collaboration into high-value spaces like boardrooms, flex training and all-hands rooms,” says Cory Schaeffer, Director Alliances & Ecosystem, QSC. “By taking advantage of the QSC’s audio, video & control patform along with Barco ClickShare, users can simplify the user experience and provide seamless integration.”

“We continue to see more rooms outfitted with the Q-SYS audio, video & control platform, and we are thrilled our ClickShare Conferencing system communicates seamless with one of the most widely-used AV processing solutions on the market. Simple, easy, wireless. This makes hybrid meetings as intuitive and straightforward as face-to-face meetings,” says David Fitzgerald, VP Global Alliances at Barco.


Three scenarios with Q-SYS and Barco ClickShare are possible:

  1. Q-SYS and ClickShare Conference in a UC&C platform-agnostic room: This allows for full BYOM (use any device, any UC&C platform) in any space.
  2. Q-SYS and ClickShare Conference in a Teams Room or Zoom Room: This configuration allows you to use your own device and switch to your preferred UC&C platform (BYOM). For example, this allows for a Zoom call in a  room designed with a Teams Room computer device. You can also wirelessly share content to the display and automatically connect to the AV in the room.
  3. Q-SYS and ClickShare Present in a Microsoft Teams or Zoom Room: This allows you to bring your own device (BYOD) and wirelessly share content to the room display in a Teams Room or Zoom Room environment, without having to force all attendees to run the VC application on their own device. 


High-end audio & video creates higher engagement

Q-SYS and ClickShare enable you to meet on your own terms, even in high-value meeting spaces, by using the device you are familiar with, and the conferencing software you prefer. Just connect and benefit from the performance of the meeting room’s AV peripherals to create a more immersive, engaging experience. ClickShare also makes remote participants feel part of the meeting by stimulating engagement and offering more interaction features.
