Never change a winning team. The Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub 500 has been on the market for quite a while and is still a crucial member of the ThinkSmart family, but why?


The All-in-One solution – The Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub 500.

Video conferences are now a standard means of communication in companies, but the technology can be fickle. A variety of devices, annoying cables or incompatible versions can quickly ruin your good mood—or even the entire conference. With the Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub 500, your meetings will be more productive than ever. Thanks to the touch display, you can start meetings punctually with just a tap of your finger. Share content quickly and easily and hear what everyone has to say, loud and clear.

Benefits at a glance:

  • A computer, plus audio and video already integrated into one system
  • Preinstalled Windows 10 IoT Enterprise as well as Microsoft Teams (including Skype Room Systems) or Zoom Rooms
  • Very user-friendly thanks to easy configuration and operation
  • Perfect for meeting rooms with 5 to 8 people, but also suitable for larger rooms with additional accessories
  • Clever cable management helps to eliminate cable clutter on or under the desk
  • An additional LED hinge neck ring shows call status
  • Equipped with ThinkShield, the Hub keeps your data safe

And best of all, the price is perfect for almost every budget and existing conference room infrastructures can generally continue to be used.


Modern working with the Lenovo ThinkSmart View and Microsoft Teams.

Think products represent innovation and cutting edge technology. Qualities that the new Lenovo ThinkSmart View has in abundance. This is the first Microsoft Teams conference phone of its kind as the classic phone handset makes way for headsets in the age of video telephony. The Lenovo ThinkSmart View replaces an office phone with an 8" tablet with integrated camera, speakers and microphone rounded off with Microsoft Teams features—for shared desks, home offices and even small huddle rooms.

Users will experience a significant boost in productivity with the Lenovo ThinkSmart View: Microsoft Teams-based collaboration and admin tasks can be controlled directly from the Lenovo ThinkSmart View freeing up more capacities on your actual device. With just one touch, the View enables a seamless dial-in to online meetings ensuring efficient working.
