Connected has been recognising the best-in-class technologies that have demonstrated outstanding leadership and pushed the boundaries of excellence for ten years. More than 500 individuals from leading industry systems integrators across Australia cast their votes this year in more than 50 award categories to nominate their most popular brands.
"Over the past 18 months, we've seen a massive upheaval in the way we live and work, and many of this year's results reflect that change," says Anna Hayes, editor at Connected magazine.
"Nowhere is this fact more evident than in our Communications category in which competition was fierce with a number of new players in the mix. The fact that Barco has maintained its first-place position, in such a tumultuous landscape, is testament to the quality of its solutions and the trust that its customers place in them."
ClickShare Conference is rapidly becoming the wireless conferencing solution of choice for today’s hybrid workplace meetings. Continuous investments in a better meeting experience and innovation to enhance the ease of use, versatility and enterprise-readiness of ClickShare Conference have removed the frictions that typically come with hosting a video conference and allows everyone to be part of the conversation.ClickShare Conference shares the apps from a user’s laptop on the meeting room display and wirelessly connects them to the cameras, speakers and microphones in the room for better hybrid meetings. It gives users the freedom to organise hybrid meetings the way they want and where they want. Users host calls from their laptop, use their preferred UC&C platform, and wirelessly connect to the meeting room display and AV peripherals. Ultimately, any meeting room can easily be redesigned into a wireless hybrid meeting room by adding ClickShare Conference.
“We are honoured that ClickShare Conference has won a Connected Most Popular award,” said Claudio Cardile, ANZ Managing Director, Barco. “This recognises our ability to provide customers and partners with the tools they need to help them prosper in a rapidly changing hybrid workplace age.
“At the same time, our strong focus on research and development to enhance the overall user experience is a smart, long-term move that will increase the overall adoption of conferencing solutions. We look forward to remaining laser focused on providing industry best practice and having the diligence, commitment, and innovative business strategies required to advance our solutions in the Australian and New Zealand marketplace.”
