Logitech Rally Plus – Lenovo ThinkSmart Hub 500 – Microsoft Teams Rooms

Save time on travel and invest in efficient decision-making processes.
Video conferencing is a cost-effective, environmentally friendly, and efficient solution for connecting with geographically dispersed teams and clients.

Choosing the best video conferencing solution for your organisation requires an understanding of your current requirements and potential scalability. If you want excellent quality, flexibility, and adaptability at a low cost, then consider ThinkSmart Hub 500 Logitech Rally Plus.

We’ve done the research and found a great combo solution for the fraction of the price.

Start on time with just one touch
The ThinkSmart Hub 500 delivers an exceptional video conferencing experience for small to mid-size meeting rooms using Microsoft Teams or Skype for Business. What we liked most was the consistently high-quality video and audio, as well as the ease of sharing content with all participants.
Meetings are time consuming enough without trying to get the technology to work properly. With the Hub 500, you can avoid costly late starts and focus on engaging with your teams and clients.

Quality audio
Unlike traditional video conferencing systems, Logitech Rally separates the speakers from the microphones. The standalone microphones provide a superior audio experience and effectively suppress distracting noise and echo. Also, the modular design makes Rally an ideal solution for meeting spaces of almost any size and shape.
For example:
• Microphones: two microphones placed at the meeting table; each can pick up the voices of participants sitting within a range of 2.3 metres
• Speakers: loudspeakers mounted to the wall (or placed near the camera/display) allows audio to be projected to a range of 4.5 metres
The Hub 500 includes integrated audio; Dolby Premium Audio speaker output and 360-degree Microphone array.

Quality Video
Developed in cooperation with Microsoft, the Smart Hub 500 is an all-in-one device. It has a 360-degree rotatable 29.5 cm display with an antiglare, anti-smudge finish. Additional features:
• Rally Ultra-HD 4K video and Logitech RightSense technologies automatically frame participant’s faces whilst optimising colour and natural luminance
• Modular audio components and expansive PTZ capability improve vocal clarity for better discussions during meetings

Room System Design considerations
• Dedicated meeting room
A medium sized conferencing room (dimensions 4.5 by 6 metres) within an enclosed space, reserved for meetings that can comfortably accommodate up to 12 people
• Cable management
Cabling needs are an important part of room system design, seamlessly connecting components and precisely positioning all the necessary equipment for the best results

Security and Practicality
Windows 10 IoT Enterprise provides intelligent enterprise-grade power and protection, with the lock down Skype Room Systems Universal application. In addition, the cable management access points secure physical ports to prevent cables from being accidentally disconnected during meetings.

“The ThinkSmart Hub 500 combined with the Logitech Rally conference cam really gives you studio-quality video, exceptional audio clarity, and a smooth video conferencing experience that would normally require a five-figure investment. Makes Microsoft Teams meetings work.”
