Having started off the operations from 16 mm films and projectors, overhead and slide projectors, Konika films and Hot Shot cameras, the company has been in sync with the changing technology and products, says Sanjeev Bhasin, Managing Director, in conversation with Elets News Network (ENN).
Tell us about the circumstances in which Ceeco Technologies has been in existence since the 80s.
Ceeco Technologies was established in 1986 as “Cinesonic Electronic Equipment Pvt Ltd” In order to address Cinema and Sound opportunities that existed during the time. We have seen the change from Analog to Digital era. Having started off the operations from 16 mm films and projectors, overhead and slide projectors, Konika films and Hot Shot cameras, the company has been in sync with the changing technology and products.
How has been the journey of thirty-plus years?
In its 30 years of journey, Ceeco has set new benchmarks in design quality, technological expertise and project management in auditoriums, conference rooms, boardrooms, seminar rooms, broadcast and post production studios, network operating centres, digital signage applications, distance learning etc. The organisation, over a period of time, has evolved into a multi-product and divisional entity with a strong network of distributors and dealers across India. Building long-term relationships with suppliers, customers and team members has helped us create a credible and respected business.
Would you elaborate about your prime product ClickShare?
This is an incredible piece of equipment manufactured by Barco Belgium. It is a must for every boardroom or meeting room. It is a very innovative wireless presentation tool that makes connecting to meeting room’s display system a matter of clicking a button. It allows all present participants in room to participate more actively. This is done by unique ClickShare Button or by installing a simple app to share content from an Android or iOS Smartphone or Tablet. It creates its own Wi-Fi network, bypassing the one of the organisation and thus completely reducing IT intervention. It can convert the existing VGA cabled analog meeting room to a 100% digital and BYOD compatible meeting room within no time.
What about the security aspect of this device?
