Skype Room Systems device offers meeting room control, participant connection and analytics

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, July 31st, 2018:   Lenovo launches 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.

“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 consistently delivers innovative devices and solutions that meet the unique needs of business customers, and the ThinkSmart Hub 500 is no exception,” said Peter Han, Vice President, Partner Devices and Solutions, Microsoft. “This second-generation Skype Room Systems solution from Lenovo will transform meeting rooms, and enable rich collaborative Skype for Business experiences.”

The Smarter Office is Today

The continuing evolution of technology and the focus on digital transformation brings smarter devices to enable improved collaboration spaces and meeting environments. 92% of businesses are planning Workplace Transformation Initiatives (WTI) to build smart offices that enhance individual and collaborative work experiences for local and remote users.  The exponential growth of smarter offices creates opportunities for hardware and software vendors, resellers and systems integrators as customers look to fuel investments into WTI. 

Efficient Conference Room Meetings

Most of today's meeting rooms have projectors or displays and audio speaker phones. There is rarely video conference support and participant hardware is not connected to any collaboration platform. Meeting set up time can often exceed ten minutes, wasting valuable creative time.

The Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub 500 can transform your meeting rooms. Easy to deploy and simple to manage, the Hub 500 can make any space a Skype for Business meeting place. Featuring 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 purpose built device is the ideal conference companion for huddle and medium-sized meeting rooms.

Pricing and Availability:

Lenovo Smart Hub 500 is now available in the UAE for a starting retail price AED 7,399/.
