Acer has announced the world’s first touchscreen Chromebase (CA24V) for meetings and dedicated video conference system.
This solution includes all of the hardware, software, and services needed in one package, along with 24/7 technical support, and easy administration through Chrome Device Management, Acer says.
The latest addition further expands Acer’s industry-leading Chrome OS device portfolio, which currently includes Chromebooks, Chromeboxes, Chromebox for meetings solutions, and Chromebases.
Acer explains that the Chromebase for meetings, designed for videoconferencing, features a large screen of Chrome OS device, a 24-inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) display with IPS technology, reproducing consistent and accurate colors at up to 178-degree wide viewing angles,
An array of four microphones and two speakers ensure that participants can hear and be heard clearly, while an adjustable HD webcam and a chassis that easily tilts from – 5° to 30° allows them to be framed perfectly on the call.
The statement further explains that the Chromebase for meetings solution, utilizes Google Hangouts, and can host video conferences with up to 25 participants across a variety of devices such as laptops, tablets, or smartphones.
It highlighted that with a meeting link, colleagues, customers, or partners can join in the call whether in a conference room, at home, or on the go.
Enterprise IT administrators can deploy and manage hundreds or thousands of Chrome devices with ease through Chrome Device Management, significantly reducing the workload of technical support and consequently reducing the total cost of ownership (TCO) for organizations. The Chromebase for meetings solution also integrates with other videoconferencing systems and existing phone systems.
Regarding its security issues, it stated that the Chromebase for meetings, which runs Chrome OS, will receive automatic updates every six weeks to ensure it is always secure and up to date, adding that all data, whether stored on the Chromebase or in the cloud are encrypted and protected by its Trusted Platform Module (TPM) 1.2 chip, which securely generates and stores cryptographic keys.
Each time Chrome OS boots up, Verified Boot checks the integrity and validity of system files to ensure they have not been tampered with.
