With the goal of easing and improving the transition to working from home, Lenovo is announcing new hardware and tools designed specifically for effective team collaboration while working remotely – the ThinkSmart Cam and ThinkSmart Bar.
The ThinkSmart Cam is a webcam that offers up to 4K resolution at 30FPS or up to a 1080p resolution at 60FPS. It also has a wide field of view for those working in small groups so that more people can fit into the frame. Picture quality can be assured with its high dynamic range and high contrast. Lenovo says that it can produce bright images even in low-light.
The device is compact and lightweight, making it easy to set up, carry around with you, or store if needed. It also has AI and Smart features such as active speaker tracking, auto-zoom, auto framing, and people counting.
No added applications are needed since the Lenovo ThinkSmart Cam complies with the requirements of Microsoft Teams Rooms and Zoom Rooms. Additionally, it can be synced with ThinkSmart Manager for central management and customization.
Pair this with the ThinkSmart Bar, and you can match quality video with quality audio. This premium soundbar offers features designed specifically to enhance a user’s video conferencing experience. It has a built-in subwoofer and noise cancellation technology to provide “lifelike clarity.” Equipped with four beamforming microphones, you get clear audio whether you’re at home or at the office. Like the ThinkSmart Cam, it can also be synced with the ThinkSmart Manager for management.
The ThinkSmart Cam and Bar will be available early next year.
