Barco Instructs Bailiffs to Collect Evidence of Wireless Presentation Systems Exhibited at ISE

Barco's ClickShare CSE-800 -- Wireless presentation and collaboration system for boardrooms and conference rooms

Today, on the opening day of ISE, Barco has instructed bailiffs to approach the booth of Kindermann and collect evidence of its Klick & Show wireless presentation system present at the show. Barco will now use this evidence for patent infringement lawsuits against Kindermann in the Netherlands, Germany, and any other jurisdiction where Kindermann commercializes its Klick & Show wireless presentation system. The bailiffs have also collected evidence of other wireless presentation systems exhibited at ISE.

In April 2012, Barco launched ClickShare, a meeting room technology that enhances meeting efficiency and better decision making. The unique wireless presentation and collaboration system allows any meeting participant to share content on the central meeting room screen with the use of ClickShare buttons.

Since then, the ClickShare family has expanded, building further on the unique ClickShare experience. The company says "Barco is market leader in wireless presentation solutions, and has shipped over 350,000 units worldwide today." The product was praised by users, resellers, and the press. Several awards attest to the versatility, high reliability, and comprehensive nature of Barco's wireless collaboration portfolio, including the InAVation Award (2013, 2014) and rAVe readers' choice awards (2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017).

To protect the efforts put in the research, development, and marketing of Barco's innovative technology, Barco has secured a strong portfolio of both utility and model patents and registered ClickShare as a trademark in various jurisdictions.

Last year, a Dutch court had already authorized Barco to seize the wireless presentation systems of US-based KanexPro at ISE. Shortly after the patent infringement lawsuit filing in the Netherlands, KanexPro agreed to cease the distribution and sale of its wireless presentation system in Europe and the US. Barco continues to closely monitor other potential infringers and will vigorously enforce its intellectual property rights against companies offering wireless presentation systems copying ClickShare's unique features.
