Take a deeper dive into the new features


1. Enhance flexibility in fixed conference rooms with ClickShare’s room switching for both collaboration bars and modular setups
*Upgrade to firmware 2.17 to unlock the full potential of your ClickShare Conference CX-50 2nd generation models. 

ClickShare brings a single user experience to all meeting rooms, even to fixed room setups like a Microsoft Teams Room. With ClickShare you add wireless sharing and native interoperability to the fixed room and enhance the user experience. You decide on the videoconferencing platform for your videocall. You can use the default mode of the fixed setup, or easily switch to Bring Your Own Meeting mode with the ClickShare Conference CX-50 2nd generation. Start a video meeting from your laptop with any other platform via Button or App. When the call closes, the room device automatically switches back to default mode, which is the videoconferencing platform pre-installed in the room .

In the previous firmware 2.16 automatic switching was enabled for fixed conference rooms with collaboration bars like the Logitech Rally Bar & Rally Bar Mini and the Poly Studio X30, X50 and X70. With this release we improved the user experience of this particular fixed setup with collaboration bars. In addition, we added support for fixed conference rooms with Window-based modular setups.


2. Advanced layout for ultrawide displays for the entire ClickShare range

All 2nd generation ClickShare models now support meeting rooms with an ultrawide screen (21:9) over USB-C (DisplayPort). With advanced layout, you can put content on screen using the full available pixel space without distracting black borders.

21:9 is the optimal format for ConferenceView, showing both people and content side by side. This guarantees an equitable meeting experience, and makes all remote participants heard and seen.


3. HostFlow also available for Zoom calls

Smart meeting flows are intent-based, automated workflows in the ClickShare App that make any meeting stress-free. The smart meeting flows guide you through the meeting from checking room availability to an automated start or advanced sharing and viewing options.

The recent update makes HostFlow available for both Zoom and Microsoft Teams calls. When you kick off your meeting, ClickShare automatically guides you as a host or participant, making the start of your meeting stress-free.


4. Admin experience updates

Managing, monitoring and optimizing your meeting experiences has become easier, thanks to our updates in the XMS Cloud platform.

With the latest XMS Cloud update, you can now easily enjoy setting up and managing the room availability feature in all your ClickShare rooms centrally.
