Google's new $2000 Chromebox for Meetings pack supports larger spaces
Early last year Google announced Chromebox for Meetings, a virtual meeting solution that provides companies with conferencing hardware, software and support. The collection of hardware is powered by an Asus Chromebox, and uses Google+ Hangouts and Google Apps to communicate with others remotely.
Google has decided to expand their Chromebox for Meetings offering with a new hardware pack that supports larger meeting rooms. The new pack still comes with an Asus Chromebox and a remote, but it now includes two speakers and microphones, and comes with a business-grade Logitech USB 1080p PTZ (pan-tilt-zoom) camera worth $800.
This new hardware allows the larger Chromebox for Meetings package to support 20 people in the one room, rather than eight from the smaller and cheaper package. Both packages allow you to chat with up to 15 people remotely through Hangouts.
