Wireless presentation versus wireless conferencing: what's the difference?

When new technologies come along it’s often difficult to see the woods for the trees. Each release is billed as upgrade or successor to a previous or rival model, but when it comes to ClickShare,  our range of wireless presentation and conferencing systems couldn’t be more different.

Unlike many new product releases, our solutions are designed to offer something different. New technologies accommodate changing work patterns and make a new set of processes more fluent and efficient.

Rather than simply replacing the old with the new, our latest range of wireless conferencing systems has been developed alongside our range of wireless presentation systems. Our customers have the freedom to choose which is right for them.

Read on to find the all-important information you need about the differences between our agnostic, wireless room systems to make an informed decision over which is most suitable for your business. Let’s get started.

What is a wireless presentation system?

A wireless presentation system is an intuitive, forward-thinking solution that changes the way you deliver presentations and hold meetings forever. A technology, developed with a user-centric approach that is incredibly simple to use but vastly effective.

With ClickShare Present, you can share presentations, videos and platforms without having to mess with wires, cables and adapters. Your meeting can start right on time and is completely clutterfree. It’s making presentation simple, easy and completely wireless. Wireless content sharing can add real value in any meeting room, from huddle to boardroom. It makes collaboration flow with one click. It can be used in a fixed meeting room like a Microsoft Teams or Zoom Room or it can be used as a stand-alone.

Enjoy interactivity features like touch-enabled support, blackboarding or annotation. Enjoy the benefits of full BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) and access screen sharing from any employee device - laptop, mobile or tablet - using Airplay, GoogleCast or Miracast.

What is a wireless conferencing system?

Our meeting style has changed almost beyond recognition in recent times.  With hybrid ways of working - a mixture of in-office and remote working - as the new normal, it’s often difficult to get everyone you need in one room at the same. A wireless conferencing room system might be the answer. Rather than postponing or rearranging meetings, optimize your remote meetings with ClickShare Conference instead, offering an effective, wireless solution that lets users connect and collaborate effectively in a matter of seconds – perfect when time is limited.

With ClickShare Conference, our agnostic, wireless conferencing room system, you easily turn any space into a hybrid meeting space. Run better hybrid meetings from any laptop. Host a video meeting with the UC&C solution of your choice, wirelessly using the room camera, microphone and speaker All participants, in-room or remote, can be seen and heard perfectly. Enable team members in the office to connect with remote participants in a matter of seconds.

Our solutions are all about  BYOM (Bring Your Own Meeting). They allow you to join any type of video conference from your own laptop with either the ClickShare Button or ClickShare App. Whether you are in huddle, a meeting room or a board room. ClickShare Conference works seamlessly with your videoconferencing software, your camera brand, your laptop, and most importantly, makes hybrid meeting as intuitive as having a face-to-face meeting. It brings humanity, increased engagement and interaction back into videoconferencing.

So how do wireless presentation and conferencing systems differ?

Having focused on the purpose of each system, and emphasized that they are different products rather than direct replacements, we felt it might also help to show how the two systems differ with a side-by-side comparison. While both systems offer a seamless, wireless approach with no training required and fast, effective guest access – along with enterprise-grade security – there are some key differences.
