With ClickShare Conference, we bring better collaboration for all meeting participants, and this in any

Michaël Vanderheeren, Product Management Director, ClickShare, underlines. “Click- Share Conference gives you the choice to use the conference tool that you find most produc- tive and connects you to camer- as, speakerphones, soundbars and other USB-peripherals in the room for a better, more im- mersive meeting experience. Everything
becomes your laptop.”
For example, say you start a remote meeting at your desk, you can simply continue with the immersive experience of a meeting room by plugging in the Conferencing Button. It al- lows that same room to be used with the Unified Communica- tions (UC) platform of choice without the need for changing setup or configuration when switching forms.”

isations that quickly realise the benefits provided, not just now, but in the future. Most impor- tantly, our customers can be as- sured that, whenever their Me- diaSuite order was placed, this exciting update will be available across existing 6014 and 5014 models, as well as on all new MediaSuite TVs into the future.” Verhaeghe continued: “Our team will continue to work to- wards new features and benefits for MediaSuite to supplement and complement the many apps available from the Google Play Store, YouTube and Chrome- cast, while knowing our updates will keep MediaSuite at the cut- ting-edge well into the future.”
flat screen solution, combining three key functions - a 4K-UHD display, wireless collaboration capabilities and digital signage. Designed for huddle rooms and offices, NovoDisplay transforms conventional group meetings into a meeting format that’s more befitting of the ‘always– on’, digital era, where everyone is encouraged to participate. With its flexibility and rich fea- ture set, the multi-faceted No- voDisplay provides a seamless gateway to effortless wireless in- formation sharing in meetings as well providing a digital message/ announcement board during oth- er office hours. The NovoDisplay delivers true return on invest- ment too, thanks to its reduced set up time and simplified inte- gration. To maximise the value of No- voDisplay, when it’s not being used for meeting purposes, it can easily take on a second role as a digital signage or board to communicate messages – from wayfinding, to ‘Welcome’ messages, news, departmental goals, canteen menus and gener- al information updates – thanks to the built-in NovoDS digital signage solution .
Commenting on the intro- duction of NovoDisplay, Holger Graeff, General Manager, Vivitek EMEA, added: “Following the success of our NovoConnect and NovoDS solutions, it was logical for Vivitek to develop an all-in- one solution which offers all the connectivity and communication features required by many busi- nesses today.”
