ClickShare vs Airtame 2

What’s the difference between Barco ClickShare and Airtame 2?

Airtame and Barco offer wireless screen sharing. Both solutions provide a physical product (the receiver) which connects to an HDMI display (or VGA display with an adapter). In the case of ClickShare, presenters have traditionally had to physically plug a transmitter (USB button) into their computer. ClickShare has recently developed a desktop application as an alternative to the button. Below we provide a further comparison between Airtame 2 and Barco’s respective ClickShare models. 

Please note that all technical specifications are taken directly from Barco’s website. In cases where pricing is not directly listed online, we include the quoted reseller price.
