Lenovo Announces ThinkSmart View Plus Microsoft Teams Personal Collaboration Device
Lenovo just announced the ThinkSmart View Plus running Microsoft Teams display, a standalone (personal) collaboration display with audio, video and whiteboarding features. The smart collaboration solution is purpose-built for hot desking, phone booths, executive desks and home office use cases.
In addition, Lenovo just launched the IP Controller for collaboration spaces as well as the ThinkSmart One.
ThinkSmart View Plus: The ThinkSmart View Plus running Microsoft Teams display is a solution that enables hybrid work by increasing productivity, flexibility and collaboration through its personal and hotdesking experiences.
ThinkSmart View Plus is an integrated device with a 27-inch multi-touch display, premium video and audio and built-in computing device, too.
ThinkSmart View Plus offers a customized, secure and flexible Microsoft Teams display experience by providing access to Teams chat, calendar, and files, while also enabling workers to join meetings through the device. When connected to a user’s PC, the ThinkSmart View Plus enables screensharing between the two devices to simultaneously view content and presenters. Additionally, ThinkSmart View Plus easily shifts to monitor mode when connected to a PC through USB-C.
ThinkSmart View Plus running Teams display also offers hotdesking capabilities, a hybrid work solution that allows employees to quickly locate flexible workspaces to touch down and make calls, set up ad-hoc meetings, or sign into their personal Teams experience. Once signed in, employees can enjoy smooth transitions from their home office to work office without a complicated set-up, all while having a customized Teams experience. Upon signing out, the user’s personal information is removed from the device — minimizing security risks.
Featuring a passive stylus pen and a Microsoft whiteboard application, users can explore big ideas together with the device. Users can also hear and be heard more clearly with a soundbar with two 5w speakers and four-mic array, while the 4K camera with auto framing and AI security delivers video.
Lenovo IP Controller: Lenovo is offering a new controller option for ThinkSmart Core and ThinkSmart One to control collaboration spaces. The new Lenovo IP Controller is an AV over-IP display with HDMI pass through that features easy-to-use Ethernet connectivity (CAT5e) with PoE. Easier to install and use, the new controller allows for installation up to 100 meters from the PC without the hassles of extenders, complicated installation, and needing power at the table. The new Lenovo IP Controller addresses the growing demand for HDMI on table, as well as IP Connectivity with PoE compatibility.
Lenovo ThinkSmart One: Unveiled in 2022, the ThinkSmart One, the world’s first Windows-based collaboration bar, is available February 2023 in select markets worldwide. Designed for small to medium meeting rooms or dedicated home office spaces, the ThinkSmart One is powered by an embedded 11th Gen Intel Core processor with vPro technology. Supporting familiar video conferencing applications such as Microsoft Teams Rooms or Zoom Rooms5, and featuring eight microphone arrays with echo and noise cancellation, 15-Watt stereo speakers and an integrated high-resolution camera with wide field of view, ThinkSmart One offers an exceptional audio-visual experience.
The ThinkSmart View Plus will be available in select markets worldwide starting mid-2023, from $2,345.
