September 6, 2014 – In February, Google announced the “Chromebox for Meetings” initiative as Google wanted to expand its considerable market reach into the enterprise space. Dell – a global leader in enterprise computers and devices – has taken up the cause with its new Dell Chromebox for Meetings.
The premise behind Chromebox for Meetings is simple – build a small computer aimed at businesses and telecommuters elegantly simple enough in hardware but has enough punch to power video conferencing and collaboration.
The Dell Chromebox is exactly this – running with the latest Intel 4th generation processors, a full HD webcam, a speaker phone, and the cabling to mount the box almost anywhere in your office space. The design is very compact and should fit well into growing and medium-sized businesses.
Current generation video outputs will not be a problem – the Dell Chromebox has multiple ports including the more common HDMI, outputting to dual monitors, and even 4K resolution output capability. And as this is a Chromebox, users will have access to familiar Chrome-based applications. This Dell solution should be a boon to medium-sized businesses who want to upgrade their video conferencing capabilities. The Dell Chromebox is priced at USD$999, and the solution includes one year support and service in the US.
