KLICK&SHOW Screen Link
The absolute highlight of the firmware update is without a doubt the new KLICK&SHOW Screen Link function. This makes it possible to link two KLICK&SHOW two base units with each other. This has the advantages that twice as many HDMI outputs as well as processing power are available and content can be output to two displays at the same time.

For example, different value tables can be easily synchronized during presentations, and all participants and content can be displayed simultaneously in web conferences. In education, the instructor's training material can be permanently displayed while the students' content is rotated through on the second display.
BYOM meets MacOS
With the new firmware update, users of Apple MacBooks with the KLICK&SHOW K-FX can now enjoy the benefits of BYOM in hybrid meetings. Thanks to the MacOS BYOM client, UC equipment such as video soundbars and webcams can be conveniently controlled wirelessly from the MacBook. All common web conferencing applications are supported.
