Google launches Chromebox for meetings

New Delhi, India, May 15, 2015: Chromebox for meetings lets organizations run and manage high ­definition video meetings for any conference room. It brings together the usability of Google+ Hangouts and collaboration of Google Apps for Business to an easy to manage Chromebox.


Instant meeting room

Chromebox for meetings comes with a blazing­fast Intel Core i7­based Chromebox, a high­ definition camera, a combined microphone and speaker unit and a remote control. Set up your entire room in minutes and easily manage all meeting rooms from a web­based management console. All you need is the display in your room, and you’re good to go.

Simpler and faster meetings

Click the remote once and you’re instantly in your meeting—no more complex dial­in codes. Share your laptop screen wirelessly with a universal short­URL, without any cords and adaptors. Integration with Google Apps makes it easy to invite others and add rooms to video meetings, directly from Google Calendar.

Meetings with anyone, anywhere

Up to 15 participants can join the video meeting from other conference rooms, their laptops, tablets or smartphones. You can meet with customers and partners—all they need is a Gmail account. You can also connect to rooms that have traditional video conferencing systems with Vidyo. Participants who prefer phones can join your meeting with a conference call number from UberConference.

Easy to manage

Chromeboxes run Chrome OS, so they update automatically and get better—not slower—over time. You will automatically get the latest security fixes, OS and feature updates for Chromebox for meetings. Start a remote meeting, control reboot frequency, restrict external calls, or manage users from a central web­based management console. SRTP is used to encrypt voice and video traffic and SSL is used to encrypt management traffic.
