SMART has just unveiled its newest product, designed specifically for users of Microsoft Lync. SMART Room System for Microsoft Lync is a turnkey solution for meeting rooms that combines audio, video and data for face-to-face and remote collaboration.
The beauty of the SMART Room System is its simplicity. While previous collaboration solutions may have taken a few minutes to activate, wasting valuable meeting time, the SMART Room System detects movement in the room and is ready to use at the touch of a button. The system comprises one or more SMART panels, a high definition camera that offers an ultra wide angle so the entire meeting room can be captured, and a high quality microphone and speakers that deliver 3D audio. A desktop control console provides easy access to screen layout, content and controls and enables email functionality so you can share meeting notes immediately.
Collaboration with the SMART Room System isn’t confined to the meeting room either – the customised codec offers native connectivity to Microsoft Lync so you can invite people to join the meeting remotely on their own device. This is straightforward to set up – you simply install the hardware, configure the system and connect to Lync.
The SMART Room System offers all the intuitive tools that SMART integrates into every device, including automatic detection of whether you are using a pen, your finger or hand to write, erase and manipulate objects on screen. Pen colour can be changed with a button click, and you can quickly switch between your usual applications and content – for example, a PowerPoint presentation – to a whiteboard for easy note taking.
The SMART Room System will be available in three different configurations: a single 70” panel, a larger 84” panel or two 70” screens that sit side by side. Further expansion is available through daisy-chaining several microphones together, ensuring the system will be suitable for any meeting room layout.
The SMART Room System will be available to purchase in summer 2013 and Smarter Interactive are authorised suppliers. For more information watch the video below or call us on 0118 336 0010.
