Cost vs. Capability

Choosing The Right User Experience

Scalability

Cost vs. Capability

Solstice is the most powerful and flexible wireless collaboration platform, and it is also affordable for every meeting space – significantly more capable and less expensive than the Barco ClickShare CS 800 and 200 models and dramatically more capable than the CS 100 which is similarly priced. Both Solstice and ClickShare offer multi-user wireless content sharing, but Solstice is also far more robust across end user and administrative capabilities as well as deployment flexibility.

Unlike ClickShare, Solstice also offers value-add capabilities beyond wireless content sharing – such as room calendar integration, digital signage playback, meeting analytics, and a robust API for other integrations – to help you get more out of your meeting spaces. And due to Solstice’s software-based architecture, Pods are easily updated with future capabilities using a feature-rich software upgrade path, giving you additional value even after your initial purchase.

Mersive Solstice

Mersive Solstice enables users to walk into a meeting space and easily share content from their laptops and mobile devices to the in-room display. Solstice offers contemporary and intuitive app-based content sharing that is the same on every user device and delivers best-in-class streaming performance. For guests and other occasional users that may not want to download the Solstice app, Solstice also supports Airplay and Miracast streaming protocols as well as a wired content source.

Solstice also supports sharing any amount of content as well as customizable, drag-and-drop control of content layout on the display. Clickshare limits content sharing to 2 sources per display and layout control is limited to full screen or quadrant view.

ClickShare’s sharing option includes using the physical ClickShare button which is difficult to manage and expensive to replace, an app experience that is inconsistent across user device platforms, and a wired input offered only on the ClickShare’s most expensive models, the CSE 200+ and CS 800.

Solstice has been designed from day one to be deployed on enterprise networks, and Solstice Pods are fully IT-compliant and scalable to any number of rooms, providing enterprises with all of the security, management, and configuration options they need to be successful. Batch configuration and updates are supported through a centralized management tool, and deployment monitoring, alerts, and meeting analytics facilitate oversite and optimization of Solstice-enabled meeting spaces.

While ClickShare can be deployed on the existing network infrastructure, it was originally designed to be deployed off network, as its own wireless hotspot. The ClickShare product suite lacks administrative, security, and configuration capabilities necessary for large scale deployments and ongoing management in some enterprise environments.
