Use in a fully equipped conference room

When connecting with the Button, it allows you to connect the room speakerphone, microphone and camera
wireless to your laptop and use the better equipment of the room in your video conferencing call.
Icons on the wallpaper indicate the availability and status of the peripherals in the room. When one of them is
not attached to the Base Unit allowing to create an audio only meeting room or a video only meeting room, the
corresponding icon will not be shown on the wallpaper.

The state of the peripheral icons on the wallpaper are in sync with the peripherals. When the microphone is muted, it is guaranteed that no sound is going through the system. A muted microphone is indicated by a microphone icon with dash through the icon.

Basic Use, with ClickShare desktop app

With the ClickShare desktop app installed on your computer you can enter a meeting room and get on the screen in a few seconds.

The ClickShare desktop app connects to the meeting room screen in order to share your content. Presence detection technology is used to do so. The ClickShare desktop app uses Wi-Fi beacons and an inaudible audio signal to detect the most nearby meeting rooms and show a list of maximum 5 most nearby meeting rooms, sorted based on signal strength on your computer. Just click on your meeting room name. This means you will never have to enter IP addresses or scroll long lists of meeting rooms before being connected to your meeting room.

The ClickShare desktop app can be used with or without a Button.
