The tech giant Lenovo have joined with Google Cloud to bring a new range of hardware, specifically designed for businesses using Google Meet. Say a ‘hello Google’ to the new Series One Room Kits.

The new kits will consist of multiple pieces of hardware in ‘Room Kit’ bundles. Designed to make it even easier for people to use Google Meet for collaboration across multiple industries.

Back in May 2020, Google Meet became free for everyone.

Google Series One Room Kits

The new Series One Room Kits are designed for 3 room sizes, and are classified as; small, medium and large – each kit contains different hardware.

The larger the room, the more intuitive the kit. For example, the large kit includes a 20.3MP camera with 4x zoom.

Smart Audio Bar

The new smart audio bar uses TrueVoice®, a multi-channel noise cancellation and voice amplification technology that ensures every voice is heard. The smart audio bar uses 8 beam-forming microphones. This means sounds like, background noise, moving around, or typing on a keyboard, are filtered out completely – whilst voices are kept crystal clear.

AI 4K Camera

Kits include a true 4K smart camera. The high resolution makes digital PTZ (pan, tilt, zoom) effects and automatic participant framing without any loss of image quality. This means the camera will pan automatically, and re-adjust when people enter or leave the room.

Meet Compute System

The Meet Compute System is a purpose-built system to manage Google Meet on Chrome OS, making it easy to install, manage and update.

Everything is securely managed through the Google Admin console, including device setup, status checks, and minor issue resolution. Which can all be done remotely. Each kit can anonymously sense the number of room participants and visits.

Mic Pod (Medium & Large Kits only)

The mic pod is Google Assistant compatible, meaning that you can use Google commands before and during meetings.

10.1″ Touch Controller (Medium & Large Kits only)

The new touch controller acts as a main hub for meetings. Meeting control is simple, you can manage new participants and questions, all from the hub.

The touch controller is included in medium and large kits, a smaller remote is available in the small kit. The touch controller is powered by a single cable.
