HP and Zoom announced a partnership during HP Reinvent. This translates into three ready-made HP Zoom Rooms solutions, on which Zoom’s video conferencing software is already configured out of the box.

The solutions are scalable, easy to use and easy to implement and manage. This makes them interesting not only in large companies, but also for SMEs. Prices are not yet known, but will be announced closer to launch. The new solutions will be available from August.

  • HP Elite Slice G2: A plug-and-play solution for small meeting rooms and huddle rooms (2 to 7 people), with video, audio and CoRC (Center of Room Control) integrated.
  • HP Elite Slice G2 Audio Ready: This solution is intended for medium sized meeting rooms (7 to 15 people) and offers the flexibility to connect the system to existing AV infrastructure.
  • HP Collaboration PC: This mini-PC connects to external AV peripherals and CoRC, allowing businesses to customize and ensure compatibility with existing infrastructure (additional screens, microphones, cameras). This solution is particularly interesting in areas with specific needs such as boardrooms, classrooms and training rooms.

The fact that our customers can take these systems straight out of the box with Zoom Rooms already pre-configured means that they can roll out hundreds or thousands of these rooms quickly. The options for integration with other AV systems enable them to use Zoom Rooms for any room, says Odel Gal, head of product management at Zoom.

HP already offers similar solutions for Skype today. We’re expanding our HP Elite Slice G2 portfolio and making it easier for IT decision-makers to choose an intuitive and seamless meeting room experience that makes employees independent and frees up IT resources, concludes Andy Rhodes, global head of commercial PCs at HP.
