With Lync slowly maturing, it’s taking on more and more roles. One such role, Lync for a conference room, has been delivered in the form of the Lyn Room System. It was announced earlier this year in a Lync Team Blog entry.
The blog entry looks at some of the issue that made conference rooms more difficult for us poor users.
Lync Room System consists of integrated hardware and software delivered by MS partners including:
- High definition touch displays (1080p) for showing video and enabling collaboration. Lync Room Systems are available with 1 or 2 front of room touch displays depending on your room size
- High definition video camera for capturing the room in full 1080p resolution
- Wideband audio for clear sound from the room and to the room
- Table-top touch meeting console to enable the meeting controller to manage the meeting without distracting the other attendees.
- Lync Room System Edition software - a full Lync client optimized to bring the immersive meeting experience to a meeting room setting.
Here’s a picture of one such room setup, with 2 touch screens and one camera from SMART:
I just noticed that super star Lync MVP Alan Jacobs has posted a nice slide deck up on Slideshare.com (http://www.slideshare.net/mucugl/mucugl-october-2013-everything-about-lync-room-system) which shows you pretty much everything you need to know about the LRS system!
