Canadian collaboration software and technology provider Smart Technologies has finally unveiled its SMART Room System — a hardware and software-integrated offering qualified and interoperable with Microsoft’s Lync Server 2013 — that was announced earlier this year at Enterprise Connect in Orlando, Florida. The new offering will help bring Lync real-time communication tools into any enterprise conference room or meeting space.

The SMART Room will combine the vendor’s well-known interactive touch display technology for visual collaboration — with Lync’s unified communication features. The system will give Microsoft users access to enhanced collaboration capabilities during meetings — such as audio, video and data presentation — regardless of whether they are having a face-to-face meeting or virtual collaboration sessions, said Smart.
In addition, users won’t have to waste precious meeting time firing up a room system. Launching a meeting can be done in one touch of the slick, glass display screen, the company said.
The SMART Room Systems, which will range in size to support 2-16 room-based participants, will include a wide-angle, high definition camera offering 109-degree field of view, echo-cancelling speakers and microphones that can be daisy chained to reach all users, and a desktop room control console. The interactive display screens range in size from 1 x 70 inches, 1 x 84inches, or 2 x 70 inches. Smart Room Systems are now available and shipping worldwide.
