Barco announces Android app for its ClickShare meeting room presentation system
Kortrijk, Belgium, September 5, 2013 – Barco, a leader in professional meeting room visualization and collaboration systems, has extended BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) support for its ClickShare product with the release of a new Android app. The app extends ClickShare support for mobile devices beyond Apple’s iOS.
With ClickShare – Barco’s revolutionary meeting room collaboration system – users can present their content on the main meeting room screen with just the click of a button. Now users of Android phones and tablets can also enjoy the ClickShare experience with the new ClickShare mobile app for Android. The app provides a virtual button allowing users to show documents, pictures and screen shots in the ClickShare composition. As Android is now one of the most widely used platforms for smart devices in the world, this hugely expands the applicability of ClickShare.
“The BYOD trend is becoming increasingly significant for businesses and we want to offer users the flexibility to share their content within a meeting room environment from any device and in the most straightforward way possible. Therefore, it was of key strategic importance for us to extend support for the ClickShare technology to the Android Operating System,” explains Guy Coen, General Manager Collaboration at Barco.
“The market response to ClickShare has been overwhelmingly positive, and the app for iPhone and iPad has been very popular with users. Extending this to Android undoubtedly opens the way to a new wave of ClickShare enthusiasts.”
The ClickShare iOS app has also been updated and is now compatible with Microsoft Office documents, as well as JPEG images and PDF documents. The ClickShare Android App is available to download free from the Google Play store now.
Barco’s ClickShare occupies a new market segment - collaborative meeting room technology. ClickShare is a wireless single-click meeting room presentation system that allows any number of users to display content from up to four devices at once on a single screen, and all in the correct resolution. It is compatible with Windows and Apple Mac computers, as well as tablets and smartphones running on the Android and iOS operating systems.
