The Google Meet Hardware portfolio offers a variety of solutions to provide exceptional and consistent user experiences to all sizes of meeting rooms. Today, end customers want consistency whether they are participating in a meeting from home, attending a check-in meeting in a small conference room, or presenting to company leaders in the executive boardroom.
Meeting room attendees should be focused on business objectives rather than troubleshooting audio visual or worrying about setting up their presentation. Though Google Meet Hardware serves room solutions up to 20 people, additional capabilities are required for more high-value spaces.
High-value spaces are business-critical, high-visibility, and impactful environments that are feature-packed and offer an optimal experience for all users. These include flexible and divisible rooms, executive spaces, training and all-hands, boardrooms, immersive environments, reverberant rooms, auditoriums, and multipurpose spaces. Collaboration spaces need to be defined by desired experience and not room size alone with an increasingly hybrid workforce. Employees expect more automation, features, and functionality in the physical and virtual spaces where they need to collaborate on a standardized UC platform they understand.
Now with Q-SYS, the Google Meet hardware portfolio extends the exceptional Google Meet experience from the focus room to any space in your campus. Q-SYS enables enhanced functionality, such as automated room combining, HDMI video distribution, systems that support multi-zone microphones, automatic camera switching, and custom room controls on a Google Meet Controller. Connect your Google Meet compute device to Q-SYS with a single USB to unlock the power of Q-SYS audio, video, and control processing. Operating on standard IT infrastructure, the Q-SYS OS provides simple scalability for network-based devices. Additionally, Q-SYS offers a room optimization application and a pre-configured Q-SYS Designer Software design file to streamline room setup.
The Q-SYS Core OS is jointly tested and supported to work with Google Meet, enabling current and future Q-SYS product interoperability. With Q-SYS and Google Meet, you’re able to choose from a wide variety of native amplifiers and loudspeakers along with third-party integration capabilities to suit the needs of your space.
