Lenovo today announced a new Windows 10 IoT Enterprise based meeting room solution powered by Skype for Business. The Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub 500 is a Skype Room Systems device which can connect remote and local participants to Skype for Business meetings and shared content.

Meeting participants need not carry their personal laptops to the meeting room equipped with this solution. It comes with a 360-degree rotatable 11.6-inch display enabling easy access to all the participants in the room. And the Dolby Audio Premium offers great sound experience.

  • All-in-One Design Compute Power, Display and Audio
  • 11.6″ Rotatable Display and compact footprint to fit everywhere
  • 360 Degree LED status indicator

“Workplace transformation begins with collaboration. As workforces are changing, businesses need to provide tools to enable efficiency and teamwork in the office and with colleagues around the world. One obvious need for change is in how meetings are conducted, including the ongoing issue of the wrong technology to get meetings started quickly. This wasted time can cost businesses millions in lost productivity, so we’re thrilled the ThinkSmart Hub 500 can help solve that issue” said Christian Teismann, senior vice president and general manager, Commercial Business Segment, Lenovo PCSD. “Together with Microsoft, we are excited to combine our skills and expertise to help customers enable smarter meeting rooms with devices like the ThinkSmart Hub 500.”

Lenovo Smart Hub 500 trial will start later this year with availability and pricing expected in first quarter of 2018.
