Since Chromebox for meetings launched two years ago, customers have enjoyed a more simple solution for meetings. With smaller spaces in mind, today, Acer introduced the all new Chromebase for meetings. Perfect for huddle spaces, phone rooms, or individual desks. This is an all-in-one dedicated video conferencing device designed for up to two people, making it the perfect solution for smaller meeting rooms.
Built on Chrome OS, Chromebase for meetings includes four microphones, two speakers, and an adjustable HD camera for sharper video and audio. Not to mention, that Google Hangouts has been updated to support up to 25 participants, expanding the opportunity for collaboration. Say goodbye to peripherals, because this Chromebase sports a 24-inch touch-screen eliminating the need for a keyboard and mouse. The Chromebase for meetings launched at a price point of $799 ($549 + $250 management license for the year). The Acer Chromebase for meetings is the first of its kind from Google, as it integrated Chromebox for meetings technologies into a single form factor.
For the last month we have been testing this product internally giving access to our entire company to utilize it for smaller, one-on-one video hangouts. It currently resides in our “UK Wildcats” huddle room (see images below) and gets used at least once an hour by someone in the office.
The Chromebase for meetings can be booked through Google Calendar, just like a Cfm, making it easier to utilize and plan on the fly. Once it arrived, we had it up in running in minutes. This is a plug and play, self-contained video conferencing solution. One can simply walk in, use the touch-screen to join the meeting, and boom, immersed into a Hangout.
One of the more interesting features on the device is the ability to adjust the camera via a separate level on the back of the Chromebase (see image below) to help add additional angles beyond tilting the screen itself. This device will continue to be used to help streamline our day to day activities, and it a great piece of technology to increase productivity.
