Barco’s Open House


Barco’s Open House

Last week proAV headed over to explore Barco’s Open House event in London where they demonstrated their key products; from the established family of ClickShare wireless collaboration products to the new UniSee video wall displays and the weconnect virtual classroom which will be on show ISE 2019.

Here is a glimpse of what was on show and what caught our eye:

• For those not in the know Barco ClickShare is their infamous, simple plug in device which enables a quick and easy sharing experience for meetings. The range includes a variety of models to suit all from the CS-100 for huddle rooms, CSE-200 for enterprise rollouts in need of an enhanced layer of security features or central management. Next up is the CSC-1, best suited to larger meeting rooms where the 4K resolution allows four users to present at the same time. At the biggest end of the scale is the CSE-800, ideal for large enterprises with a boardroom where eight users can present at once with robust security and large scale connectivity.

• Barco Opspace is an operator workspace solution for control rooms which is robust, flexible and most importantly scalable. It provides easy access to apps, remote desktops and video streams across one unified display creating a complete situation overview. All managed by one keyboard and mouse it makes the overall management of situations easier which means decisions can be made quicker and more effectively.

• Next on display was their latest LCD video wall development, the Barco UniSee. Something that has revolutionised video wall technology this year. The UniSee has Sense X automatic calibration which keeps the image balanced over time. The NoGap technology reduces the image disturbance to barely noticeable and screens can be added to an almost incomprehensible dimension. An optional redundant power supply is also possible.

• Finally another interesting development came in the education arena, Barco have launched the weconnect virtual classroom as the next step in the weconnect cloud-based system where students BYOD to the classroom. The virtual classroom is a teaching and learning experience in an online setting. The teacher sees and hears all students and every remote students hears everyone talking just as if they are in the same space. The weConnect Virtual Classroom is hosted and accessed via cloud-based software, and accessible from any device, allowing true flexibility and engagement.
