ClickShare

2 min read

With wireless collaboration solutions you share content swiftly and intuitively on the meeting room screen. To help you keep control and raise the level of meeting engagement an advanced set of interactivity features is at your fingertips.

Blackboarding is one of the features that encourages the natural flow of ideas and helps to capture additional thoughts of the content shared. ClickShare adds energy to meetings and leads the way to more innovative methods of collaboration by offering blackboarding on touch enabled screens with the CSE-200+ and CSE-800 models.

What is the blackboarding functionality?

Blackboarding allows you to use the meeting room’s touchscreen as a writing board to write or sketch ideas on. Let creativity flow and have more dynamic meetings. With only one tap on the screen, you can save your real-time brainstorming session and share a copy with all meeting participants connected to the ClickShare Base Unit via the Button or via the ClickShare Desktop App. 

With only one tap on the touch screen, you can select the blackboarding functionality. Combining a touch display and a wireless collaboration tool drives the productivity and engagement in your meeting room. With an additional tap on the screen, you can select the 'save' option. Saved sessions can be found on your laptop under c:\Users\username\Documents\clickshare-downloads. Files are never saved on the Button or Base Unit.

Why is blackboarding better than whiteboarding?

  • Black backgrounds give less stress on the eyes since black absorbs the light. White backgrounds have bigger contrast and cause more strain to the eyes.
  • Black backgrounds with white text make it the focus on the written text higher because the contrast is stronger with white. It’s easy to see from afar and it does not create blind spots.
  • Black backgrounds make the eye more sensitive for brighter colours.
