As the commercial market rebounds and with WFH solutions still in high demand, Barco and Shure are collaborating on a solution that will help custom integrators continue to serve those markets.

According to a recent press release, the Shure audio ecosystem now pairs seamlessly with Barco ClickShare Conference, allowing customers to combine high-quality audio for remote communication with easy-to-use wireless in any meeting space. ​

“Customers can rely on powerful and certified solutions with Shure networked audio solutions and our ClickShare Conference products,” says David Fitzgerald, vice president of global alliances at Barco. “This offers customers an engaging videoconferencing experience with high quality audio and easy, seamless wireless conferencing. Hybrid collaboration has never been easier and is just one click away.”

Based on Barco ClickShare’s Hybrid Working Research Study, workers predict a rise in hybrid meetings (meetings featuring both in-person and remote attendees) in the next 12 months. More than half of employees surveyed prefer to host video calls from their laptop, compared to an in-room system (19%) or their smartphone (18%). Based on Shure’s recent State of Meetings Report, 96% of professionals are frustrated with their virtual meetings, with 4 out of the top 5 frustrations related to audio.

Benefits​ of this new pairing include: 

  • Ready for any collaboration platform from your device ​
  • The power of Steerable Coverage technology and cutting-edge industrial design​
  • High-quality audio and innovative wireless conferencing solutions ​
  • Secure audio that prevents eavesdropping with Shure Audio Encryption ​
  • Flexible options for all meeting room sizes​
  • Shure IntelliMix DSP delivering echo- and noise-free and intelligent mixing keeping the agenda on track
  • One-click wireless conferencing

Shure’s DSP IntelliMix P300 and ANIUSB-MATRIX are also certified for ClickShare Conference. Flexible signal routing allows for connectivity between rooms, laptops and even mobile devices.

“Built for the hybrid workplace, your customers, clients, and students will feel like they’re in the room with you when you use Shure’s market-leading wireless and array microphones with Barco’s ClickShare Conference system,” says Paul Gunia, director of technology partnerships at Shure.

According to Barco, when combined with ClickShare Conference, users can enable a flexible and easy way of working. The ClickShare technology also responds to the increasing need for BYOM (Bring Your Own Meeting) in the workplace. With BYOM, users can walk into any meeting room, plug in the ClickShare Conferencing Button and host a video conference from their own device. Within seconds, they share their apps wirelessly to the room display and benefit from the AV setup of the room while using preferred conferencing solutions.​ Audio quality becomes an asset when using Shure’s Microflex array microphones.

Shure and ClickShare work together with leading third-party video conferencing platforms, including Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Cisco Webex, and many others.
