All-Hardware Solution

As an emerging solution released in August 2022, AV Access eShare W50 wireless presentation system has injected vitality into the whole market. It focuses on the core concept of an all-hardware and truly plug-n-play solution. With no software or driver required for wireless casting, it prevents the potential entry points for viruses, spyware, and other external threats. And the USB-C dongle is also guest-friendly, with no software needed. Just plug it in and share your screen in no time.

By contrast, Barco ClickShare CX-20 requires you to install a software application called “ClickShare Desktop App” for wireless casting with its dongle. If your IT environment doesn’t allow you to install any software, perhaps eShare W50 plus dongle is a better solution for you. Built with a system driver inside, the eShare D10 USB-C dongle allows you to connect to eShare W50 and share your screen instantly with just a click of the button, with no extra software application required.

Multiple Connection Methods

Besides, the eShare W50 wireless presentation system allows you to share contents wirelessly from your laptop, smartphone or iPad via AirPlay/Miracast/USB-C Dongle.

However, Barco ClickShare CX-20 is not built with any video input port at all! If you prefer a pure wireless connection method, working on a tidy meeting table, CX-20 may be the right one for you.

By contrast, CX-20 is built with one USB 2.0 type-A and one USB 2.0 type-C, so you can only connect up to two USB peripherals.

Ultra-Low Cost

Above all, the price is what we all are concerned about. The price of eShare W50 plus a donge is 25% of that of Barco ClickShare CX-20. This high-quality and reliable wireless presentation system only costs you $389.99 (with a dongle: $493.98)!
