Lenovo Unveils ThinkSmart Core to Embrace Hybrid Working Models

At Integrated Systems Europe Digital, Lenovo has introduced ThinkSmart Core, the company’s first modular room kit designed for flexibility and scalability in meeting spaces.

This is a certified solution for Microsoft Teams Rooms or Zoom Rooms, Core is available in two room kit configurations:

ThinkSmart Core + Controller is a kit for spaces with pre-existing audio-visual components certified for Teams or Zoom.

ThinkSmart Core Full Room Kit includes the Core compute device and Controller plus adds the ThinkSmart Cam and ThinkSmart Bar. The complete kit supports huddle to large rooms and can be scaled up with additional table-top microphone options.

The purpose built ThinkSmart Core compute device is powered by an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ vPro® processor and delivers connectivity to support most meeting room configurations. Core includes Intel® Iris Xe graphics and supports two 4K front of room displays via HDMI ports, 4K cameras, USB audio and a room whiteboard camera.

Smart integrated cable management and VESA mount compatibility means the device can be discretely located virtually anywhere in the meeting room.

ThinkSmart Controller is a 10.1-inch ten-point touch screen powered by USB-C

The ThinkSmart Controller is a 10.1-inch ten-point touch screen powered by USB-C (10-meter cable included) with its integrated stand with a 30-degree or 60-degree viewing angle. Integrated Infrared sensors detect when participants enter the room and a 3.5mm headphone jack provides direct audio connection.

ThinkSmart Core Full Room Kit also includes the previously announced ThinkSmart Cam and ThinkSmart Bar offering a complete conference ready solution with intelligent features, high quality video and immersive audio for an exceptional collaboration experience.

Deploy, Manage and Maintain

As with all Lenovo ThinkSmart products, the components come standard with Lenovo’s Premier Support, providing access to advanced technicians 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. The ThinkSmart Core kits also include one year of Lenovo’s value-added software and services:

ThinkSmart Professional Services: Deploy and Maintain will help IT departments set up each kit, configure and integrate into existing unified communications platforms; and includes a one-year renewable maintenance contract that also comprises a redeployment option to a new meeting space if required.

ThinkSmart Manager Premium is Lenovo’s collaboration management software suite. Maintaining effective collaboration means the technology needs to be always on, always connected and easy to use. ThinkSmart Manager Premium helps IT departments to configure, control and manage the entire portfolio of ThinkSmart solutions from a single intuitive interface.

“Because the right technology provides not just productivity, but personal connections so important to collective well-being, our goal is to continue to innovate to bring people together,” said Shannon MacKay, general manager, Lenovo Smart Collaboration Business. “No matter where they are or how they work, ThinkSmart is as much about putting smiles on peoples’ faces as it is about maximizing meeting efficiencies.”
