No matter which Yamaha YVC Series speakerphones users choose, they will be able to use Yamaha UC's sound technologies. Barco's ClickShare Wireless Conference range of products work with these conferencing systems as well as the user's display and camera setup without the hassle of physically connecting devices using cables and adapters.

Yamaha UC and Barco ClickShare Conferencing offer device configurations to suit a customer's room size, group size, and collaboration needs. For small meeting rooms with up to four people, the YVC-200 and ClickShare CX-20 enable reliable communication.

Meeting rooms with four to 10 people will benefit from the YVC-330, which features Yamaha's SoundCap technology to eliminate background noise, and ClickShare CX-30 with touch back, annotation, and blackboarding capabilities.

In addition, two YVC-330s can be daisy-chained to cover up to 16 participants. Large meeting spaces where up to 40 people can gather will require the YVC-1000's separate microphone and speaker system along with ClickShare CX-50's AV driving multi-content sharing.
