Meetings are best done face to face. But in reality that can't always happen. Usually you find yourself on a conference call or some weird chat room designed for employes to pitch opinions and ideas. Thats all about to change with what Google sees as the solution to that problem.
Meet Google Chromebox for Meetings. Google Chromebox for meetings is a video conferencing system powered by Chrome OS. It brings together Google+ Hangouts and Google Apps in an easy-to-manage Chromebox, making it simpler for any company to have high-definition video meetings.
Instant Meeting Room
Chromebox for meetings comes with a blazing-fast Intel Core i7-based Chromebox, a high-definition camera, a combined microphone and speaker unit and a remote control. Set up your entire room in minutes and easily manage all meeting rooms from a web-based management console. All you need is the display in your room, and you’re good to go.
Simpler and Faster Meetings
Walk into the room, click the remote once and you’re instantly in the meeting. No more complex dial-in codes, passcodes or leader PINs. Share your laptop screen wirelessly, no need for any cords and adaptors. Integration with Google Apps makes it easy to invite others and add rooms to video meetings, directly from Google Calendar.
Meetings with Anyone, Anywhere
Up to 15 participants can join the video meeting from other conference rooms, their laptops, tablets or smartphones. Need to meet with a customer who doesn’t use Chromebox for meetings? That’s easy too—all they need is a Gmail account. You can also connect to rooms that have traditional video conferencing systems using a new tool from Vidyo, and participants who prefer phones can join your meeting with a conference call number from UberConference.
Chromebox for meetings is available in the U.S. today starting at $999, which includes the ASUS Chromebox and everything you need to get going. Later this year, Google is planning to launch in Australia, Canada, France, Japan, New Zealand, Spain and the U.K.
