Lenovo announced at the Microsoft Ignite conference a new device to tackle conference room complexities and help companies embrace the digital transformation of modern workspaces. The Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub 500 is a Skype Room Systems device that manages collaboration within modern meeting rooms. With the ability to simply connect remote and local participants to Skype for Business meetings and shared content, it eliminates the hassle of sharing personal laptop screens and messing about with cables. Developed in cooperation with Microsoft, the Smart Hub 500 is an all-in-one device, with a 360-degree rotatable 11.6-inch display and runs Microsoft Windows 10 IoT Enterprise.
The Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub 500 transforms meeting rooms with an easy to deploy and simple to manage solution. With Dolby Audio Premium sound experience, 360-degree array microphones and a touch display to control the meeting and large external displays, the Skype Room Systems is built for medium-sized meeting rooms.
Pilot programs with Lenovo Smart Hub 500 begin later this year with product availability and pricing expected in first quarter of 2018.
