HP Elite Slice
HP transforms meeting spaces with new Collaboration PC
HP Inc unveiled a set of conferencing and collaboration technology designed for the office of the future, the latest in a series of HP innovations that reinvent the PC experience and extends it into modern meeting spaces. The HP Elite Slice for Meeting Rooms G2 and an all-new 55-inch diagonal 4K conferencing display are part of HP’s growing ecosystem of PC-based conferencing tools and displays designed to make the collaboration experience simple, scalable and versatile.
Unified Communications (UC) based collaboration technology – solutions that integrate voice, video, and data for real-time collaborating – is growing and HP Elite Slice for Meeting Rooms G2 with Skype Room Systems (SRS) provides a seamless technology experience for the unique demands and needs of businesses and their workforce. This innovative collaboration PC enables a high-quality audio and video experience using Skype for Business.
Curated for collaboration, HP Elite Slice for Meeting Rooms SRS is designed with a variety of features to make the meeting experience simple and pain-free. To reduce time spent setting up calls, the optional Center of Room Control is a 12.3-inch diagonal touch screen that easily manages conference calls, and includes the HP Presence Sensor that senses when a participant enters the room to start the meeting. The control includes a 1.3 m cable to easily move around the room for use by multiple participants, features multiple viewing angles and is built with smudge-resistant glass coating to help reduce the unsightly fingerprints that can accumulate throughout a day’s use.
- To ensure that meeting participants can be heard clearly and avoid the dreaded “I thought I was on mute” mishap, the device features 90 dBa audio for sound and clarity, a far field microphone that can capture sound up to five meters away, HP Noise Cancellation to avoid unwanted sounds/conversations in a room, and a tri-colored light ring that indicates volume level and mute.
- To avoid the dongle drama and cable clutter experienced in many conference rooms, HP Elite Slice for Meeting Rooms SRS features a wireless display module that eliminates the use of cables with easy sharing via Skype for Business. There is also an option to allow guests to connect directly to the device through the HDMI port.
- HP Elite Slice for Meeting Rooms SRS is as easy to deploy, secure and manage as a traditional PC, with a standards-based user interface, HP Manageability Integration Kit, and a tool-less set up.
- As conference devices are typically shared across multiple users, always on, and often unattended for long periods of time, HP Elite Slice for Meeting Rooms SRS features HP Sure Start with Dynamic Protection and is the only conferencing solution with a self-healing BIOS. The device also features tamper-proof port covers to prevent tampering or damage by users.
