HP introduces PC-based conferencing system

HP launched the new 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.

“We’ve heard from our customers that conferencing technology should be easy to deploy and manage, secure for sensitive information, and most importantly easy-to-use,” said Benoit Bonnafy, vice president, Business Personal Systems EMEA, HP Inc. “Collaboration is a vital tool for the modern workforce and HP is on a mission to design collaboration technology – like the new HP Elite Slice for Meeting Rooms – to be a simple, meaningful and personal experience.”

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.

The device comes with HP Noise Cancellation to avoid unwanted sounds/conversations in a room, and a tri-colored light ring that indicates volume level and mute. The 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.

The 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.
