Wednesday 16 September 2020 | 09:18 CET | News

Lenovo announced, in partnership with Google Cloud, purpose-built meeting room products that include a collection of hardware components to enable workplace collaboration. The Google Meet room kits from Lenovo provide collaboration products for new and existing G Suite and Google Meet customers who need to outfit spaces to address the challenges of new hybrid working models.

Pricing, availability

Ready out-of-the-box, the kits include compute, controllers, cameras, soundbars, microphone pods and cables and are available in three distinct offerings for small, medium and large meeting rooms: Small Room Kit at USD 2,699; Medium Room Kit at USD 2,999, as well as Large Room Kit at USD 3,999. All are available starting November.

Small Room Kit and Medium Room Kit each come with a compute device and a 12MP camera. On top of that, the first kit comes with a Speaker Bar with integrated mics and a remote controller, while the second kit includes one Mic Pod and a 10.1-inch touchscreen controller. The kit for large rooms comprises a compute device, a 20.3MP Camera with zoom, two Speaker Bars, two Mic Pods and a 10.1-inch touchscreen controller. 

Available in two colors, Chalk and Charcoal, the kits provide flexible and scalable options. Furthermore, the kits are backed by a three-year Lenovo Premier Support warranty and optional Smart Collaboration Managed Services are available.

Design, functionalities

Designed by Google Cloud and Lenovo, the Google Meet room kits complement a modern workplace ethic with minimalist design and a user-friendly interface for easy interaction. Lenovo and Google believe the future of work is fluid and flexible, and the Google Meet room kits were created with the new hybrid workforce in mind. 

Controlled by a high-performance compute device, the platform includes an exclusive Google TPU (Tensor Processing Unit) that provides AI and machine learning functionality to maximise audio and video quality. Power over Ethernet (PoE) allows the compute device to carry low voltage power and network traffic over ethernet to the kit’s components, such as the controller, cameras and speaker bars. Google Meet Room Kits from Lenovo also include AI cameras with future-proof 4K capability for participant framing, and built-in TrueVoice noise cancelation technology.
