Acer Chromebox for Meetings

Expected availability - calendar Q2 2016

Acer recently announced its Chromebox for Meetings CXV2 package, allowing businesses to get videoconferencing up and running quickly without having to integrate any other solutions. This excellent package will be available from Tech Data in Q2 2016, please contact for the latest information on this product.

The hardware, software and support package boots up in about eight seconds enabling it to quickly support up to 15 participants per conference across various devices. The solution is easy to set up and manage, making it a simple and effective solution for businesses who want to get online without hassle and to be conversing with clients or colleagues promptly.

Acer’s Chromebox for Meetings CXV2 is powered by an Intel Core i7 processor and Intel HD graphics to ensure the best quality video possible using the integrated camera. The camera has a Carl-Zeiss lens, supports 1080p video, and has automatic low-light correction so that everyone can be seen even if their environment is less brightly lit.

Also included in the hardware package is an omnidirectional microphone and speaker to ensure all participants can be heard, and a wireless remote control with keyboard for operating the system. To keep everything secure, Acer uses its Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 chip for encryption and protection, which generates and stores cryptographic keys for users on demand.

As it runs on the Chrome OS, the CXV2 is automatically updated every six weeks to add new features as and when they're rolled out, fix any bugs and correct any security problems that have been found. This makes IT management less labour intensive than other videoconferencing systems that need to be manually updated to keep them up-todate.

Being controlled via Chrome Device Management means that although manufacturer’s support is included in the CXV2 package, technical support interventions are needed infrequently which keeps costs lower for organisations.


The new Chromebox for meetings CXV2 is the latest addition to Acer’s industry-leading portfolio of Chrome OS products including Chromebooks, Chromeboxes, and Chromebases. According to data from Gartner, Acer Group is currently the world’s leading Chromebook brand with over 34% market share for the first three quarters of 2015.
