SMART Room System for Microsoft Lync


The SMART Room System for Microsoft Lync brings Microsoft Lync into meeting rooms providing seamless voice, video and data collaboration.

SMART worked directly with Microsoft to develop the turnkey solution for meeting rooms that simplifies the collaboration experience for both virtual and face-to-face participants. Connecting to the Microsoft Lync platform, the SMART Room System provides seamless online collaboration through sharing of real-time video, voice and data, without the need for extra hardware or software.


The integrated solution is designed for rich and dynamic meeting experiences. Featuring SMART’s industry-leading interactive displays, meeting participants can share ideas creatively and effectively.


The SMART Room System for Lync offers much faster meeting start-up time than the average 8-10 minutes required, as indicated by Microsoft’s internal studies. Start-up time for an active session with full access to audio, video and presentation data is reduced to a single click.
