Where would we be without online conferences?
We’ll show you the latest tools for even more spontaneous and true-to-life professional meetings.
The way we work together has changed dramatically over the last year. Hybrid forms of collaboration which see employees sitting in different environments, battling different background noises are now part and parcel of the business day. This has also led to exciting new developments in technology, some of which you can discover here.
From the perfect monitor to all-in-one systems that make joining cinema-quality conferences possible at the touch of the button. Optimised tools for small huddle spaces where a handful of employees meet for intensive collaboration. Professional enterprise-grade audio equipment that block out the sounds of your loved ones and pets so you can keep focussed on your work. The golden age of video conferencing is upon us …
If you’ve had a fantastic idea, you want to be able to present it in a meeting in such a way that it inspires the other participants. Smooth and cross-device collaboration are possible thanks to the whiteboard feature and Miracast and now attendees can ideate together with the Surface Slim Pen. Look no further than the stylish Microsoft Surface Hub 2S. Modern teams work flexibly. Ideas develop everywhere. And the Surface Hub 2S 50" and Surface Hub 85" move with you. No matter if in a conference room or workspace, with its thin design and optional mobile APC battery, you have all the freedom you need. The far-field microphones, crystal-clear speakers, vivid 4K display and the 90° Surface Hub 2 camera combine to ensure that all participants can be heard and seen. And thanks to seamless integration of Office 365, you can use all the apps your team knows and trusts.
Small meeting rooms and huddle spaces are all the rage, creating opportunities for ad-hoc collaboration in a space designed to minimise disruptions. Of course, these shared spaces have to be suitably equipped and this is where the Webex Room Kit Mini comes into play. The compact video conferencing device with a 120° field of vision is perfect for small meeting spaces. The built-in speaker and intelligent beamforming microphone with automatic noise cancellation deliver crystal-clear sound. Share content or your screen in high quality while the camera with speaker tracking makes sure you always appear in the best light. The Room Kit Mini is available with or without SIP codec and works with Cisco Webex, Zoom and Microsoft Teams.
The new Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub has been developed with the aim of making intelligent collaboration even easier with everything you could ever want from a premium all-in-one conferencing system built in—a 25.6 cm (10.1") matte touch display, clear sound with the integrated full duplex speaker and four dual array microphones. The Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub is pre-configured for Microsoft Teams (including Skype for Business) and Zoom Rooms. The 20% slimmer design and a unique ThinkSmart OneCable mechanism ensures your meeting room always looks tidy. With matching peripherals like the new Lenovo ThinkSmart Cam with active speaker tracking, auto zoom and auto framing to name but a few features, the Hub can also be used in large conference rooms.
Can’t find the right display for your conferences? Then you’ve not seen Dell’s 4K displays. Crisp visuals and impressive colour accuracy are complemented by smart collaboration features that take your meeting experience to the next level. The anti-glare touch screen has an anti-smear coating to prevent visible fingerprints and reflections. Innovative InGlass™ touch technology from FlatFrog enables several users to interact simultaneously with up to 20 touch points. The monitors are also equipped with numerous ports such as HDMI, VGA and USB and can be managed remotely by the IT department. Smart features such as the Dell Screen Drop feature mean they can also be flexibly adjusted to different heights and enable comfortable group work at the screen.

Each EXPAND model enables clear conversations, is easy to use and offers perfect connectivity. By optimising communication between your colleagues and customers, the EXPAND series provides the perfect foundation for modern collaboration.
