Why Chromebox For Meetings?
Chromebox for meetings offers users a smarter and more affordable way to achieve collaboration with significant return on investment. With the Chromebox for meetings, employees can collaborate in real time which reduces travel costs, increases productivity in dispersed teams and provides a green solution. So what makes the Chromebox for meetings unique?
What makes this solution different than simply running Google Hangouts on your computer is that the Chromebox for meetings unit includes a customized version of the ChromeOS specifically designed to run Hangouts in conference room settings. The dedicated software allows you to easily start Hangouts, pull calendar invites onto the main screen and join meetings with a single click. In the admin console you can add calendar resources, like meeting rooms, directly to the device, manage multiple devices and monitor usage.
Google's biggest selling point for its new videoconferencing system is ease of use. "No more complex dial-in codes, passcodes or leader PINs," writes Caesar Sengupta, a Google VP working with Chromebox for meetings in a blog post, adding that you can "walk into the room, click the remote once and you're instantly in the meeting." Regarding the powerful Core i7 processor, Sengupta says it is necessary to process and locally encrypt multiple simultaneous streams, adding that because of this, normal Chromeboxes (or lesser powered PCs) won't be able to host this service.
