Electronic innovations in Korea
KES is the largest electronics and IT fair in Korea and showcases the latest trends and innovations. The last edition attracted around 700 companies from 20 different countries. On 7 October, the opening day of the fair, organizer Korean Electronics Association (KEA) awarded prizes to a total of 20 companies and their solutions. These awards, the 2013 KES Innovation Awards, were divided into 3 categories: Best New Product, Best Design and Best Content. The winners were selected by a jury of sector experts.
ClickShare was submitted to the Innovation Awards by Barco’s Korean partner and reseller Computer & Communication. The solution received one of the much-coveted Best Content awards. The jury praised ClickShare’s ability to intuitively share content on one, single screen by simply pushing a button. ClickShare is completely wireless and allows users to share content through a USB device or user-friendly app for iPhone, iPad or Android. Furthermore, the system automatically displays the most optimal resolution, without messing up the layout.
The award is a major leap forward for ClickShare in Korea. Today, many big-name corporations and organizations are starting to embrace this technology, including Electronic Newspaper, GM DAEWOO, SAMSUNG Electronics and Korea Express Way. All of them have praised ClickShare’s many benefits.
