  • You can unleash the digital signage capabilities of the ClickShare alliance partners Signagelive, Seenspire and Korbyt on any ClickShare Present or Conference device.
  • Use the XMS Cloud Management Platform to configure the digital signage provider of your choice on each device.
  • Connect a digital signage player via the HDMI-in port of the CX-50 to replace the screen saver with dynamic content.


2. Enjoy simple, stress-free meetings with smart meeting flows

The redesign of the ClickShare App introduces a highly intuitive user experience.

Smart meeting flows powered by the ClickShare Desktop App are intent-based, automated workflows that make any meeting stress-free. The smart meeting flows guide you through the meeting and help you meet in a simple, fast and efficient way.

  • Mirror your screen, share an application window, or use the meeting room display as an extended desktop with Advanced Sharing. (Extended desktop is available in the new UI as Beta feature.)
  • Kick off your meeting with HostFlow that automatically guides you as a host or participant.
  • Keep remote participants on screen while sharing your presentation with ConferenceView.

3. Advanced Wi-Fi setup

Firmware 2.14.1 enables you to configure the Wi-Fi signal of your ClickShare Base Unit in order to avoid interference with other Wi-Fi signals from nearby meeting rooms.

 

4. XMS: location-based roles and permissions

In XMS Cloud, IT managers can now assign rights and permissions to their administrators, based on their location. This makes it easier for large organizations to manage the ClickShare fleet on specific sites.
