Barco and Crestron Electronics, Inc., both global leaders in workplace technology, have entered into a global patent license agreement earlier this year. This enables Crestron to utilize some of Barco’s ClickShare patents for Crestron’s own collaboration solutions, including AirMedia® wireless conferencing and presentation systems. The agreement will further spur growth of solutions for the BYOM market with the development of additional presentation and conferencing solutions. The Bring Your Own Meeting (BYOM) concept enables users to host calls from their own laptop with their preferred conferencing solution, using the audio and video equipment in the meeting room. Because of the growing interest in hybrid meetings, Barco and Crestron expect the market for wireless conferencing systems to accelerate significantly over the coming years.
