Barco has announced that the CS-100 and CSE-200 have joined its ClickShare wireless presentation and collaboration portfolio, offering the freedom to better tailor the ClickShare unit to the meeting room’s—and the participants’—needs.
In this way, Barco’s ClickShare portfolio spans the complete spectrum of meeting rooms, from small huddle rooms to large boardrooms. With this wireless presentation and collaboration system, users can share what’s on their laptop or mobile device, on the presentation screen.
ClickShare’s most prominent advantage is the use of Buttons—USB-powered devices users plug into their PC or Mac.
With a simple click, this Button wirelessly transmits the content from the laptop to the large meeting room screen.
Anyone—including guests—can share right away, without the need for training. With the ClickShare App, users can also share content from their mobile phones or tablets.
With the release of the CS-100, Barco offers the first ClickShare unit designed for small meeting and huddle rooms where sharing is a basic need, where there is no room for technical issues.
The CS-100 is a stand-alone model with a HDMI output that allows up to eight users to connect, with one user sharing at a time. This can either be done using the ClickShare Button or the ClickShare App.
The CS-100 includes the standard ClickShare security features including encryption, login management, https and the possibility to hide the SSID of the Base Unit’s wireless network.

The CSE-200, meanwhile, has been developed for enterprise rollouts that require enhanced security features, a wider range of connectivity options including AirPlay support or central management.
This unit can be integrated into the company network, enabling remote management. Two users can share on screen at the same time—either via ClickShare Buttons, the ClickShare App or a combination of the two.
The CSE-200 is suitable for standard meeting rooms and for user convenience, security features of the CSE-200 can be set to one of three predefined levels, depending on the company’s policies and needs.
Last but not least, the device’s API also makes integration into the company network a lot easier.
“The CS-100 and CSE-200 are two important additions to the ClickShare product portfolio, greatly expanding our market reach,” says Jan Willem Brands, VP collaboration at Barco.
“Joining the CSC-1, which was optimised for high-profile meeting rooms and boardrooms, allowing four users to share simultaneously and to connect screens with UHD (3840 x 2160) resolution, Barco now offers a ClickShare model that fits any meeting room, from small huddle room to boardroom. The new tagline (Plug into simplicity – tap into amazing) sums up the product’s main benefits: a very simple to use solution that brings never seen value to the users. The CS-100 and CSE-200 now complete our portfolio and will contribute to further writing ClickShare’s success story.”
The CS-100 and CSE-200 units will have their trade show premiere at the Barco booth at ISE on stand 11-F100.
