Extron recently announced its collaboration with HP in creating scalable meeting solutions for modern work spaces. 

What is the scope of the partnership? 

Extron is integrating room automation, audio, and signal extension capabilities with the HP Elite Slice G2, Microsoft Teams Rooms®, and Zoom Rooms™ solutions. The collaboration with HP brings Extron audiovisual control capabilities to the HP Elite Slice G2 providing complete AV and conferencing control across the enterprise.

Why is it needed?

With this new solution, a simple tap on the HP Center of Room Control screen can control call volume for the room as well as send commands that trigger automation events for display control, shades, lighting, and more.

Why is this important for workspaces?

“Our work with HP enables Extron to integrate our extensive control and room automation experience into the HP Elite Slice G2, Microsoft Teams Rooms, and Zoom Rooms solutions.” says Casey Hall, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Marketing for Extron. “Using the HP Center of Room Control screen, users will be able to control conferencing, room AV, shades, lighting, and more.”

“Many companies are transforming their current conferencing rooms to incorporate new technologies for more flexible meeting infrastructures. HP is excited to work with Extron to help create scalable, powerful collaboration experiences for today’s workforce,” said Loretta Li-Sevilla, Head of Future of Work and Collaboration Business. “By incorporating AV control and automation into a single user interface, the HP Elite Slice G2 will enhance the conference room experience for our users.”

As part of this conferencing, control, and automation ecosystem, occupancy sensors can also be added to automate system power to turn on displays when participants enter a room and turn them off when the room is empty.
