AVAD Adds Barco as Channel Partner
Offering wireless collaboration with the click of a Button
Los Angeles, Calif. —April 27, 2015– AVAD LLC, North America’s leading provider of solutions to the residential and commercial custom installation markets, is announcing the addition of Barco to its list of valued partners. Barco, a global leader in collaborative visualization solutions, is now offering its popular Present-P and Present-C Series business projectors along with ClickShare through AVAD. Barco ClickShare makes connecting to a meeting room’s video system a matter of clicking a button and offers another meeting room technology solution to AVAD’s customers. Installers will experience the simplicity of install and their clients will enjoy how easy wireless collaboration can be.
There are two flavors to fit client’s needs: ClickShare CSM-1 is best for standard meeting rooms. Users attending the meeting simply plug in the button, open the application, and click. ClickShare CSC-1 is optimized for high-profile meeting rooms, boardrooms and conference rooms. Sixty-four buttons can be wirelessly connected to the base unit. Perfectly synchronized sound and video ensures that movie clips can be shared. Dynamic content from iPads, iPhones and Samsung Galaxy devices can be shown directly to the screen using the specialized apps. Fully synchronized sound and video can accommodate up to four people on screen simultaneously.
“We’re all very excited as the Barco business technology line-up enhances our high-resolution presentation tools and, in keeping with our long-range strategy, enables our customers to expand their reach in the commercial marketplace,” said Hugh Hughes, Director of Purchasing and Vendor Management at AVAD.
Barco’s business projectors come in both single- and three-chip DLP models, offering a range of lumens and resolutions suited to a wide variety of professional applications, from boardrooms to classrooms to large auditoriums. User-friendly, compact and quiet, Barco projectors feature the latest visualization technologies, including panoramic resolution, to present crystal-clear images in any environment. When combined with Barco’s ClickShare single-click presentation system, users can elevate their meeting rooms to a more powerful level of usability, leading to enhanced meeting efficiency and better collaboration. New projectors and other accessories are available via special order.
