• Avocor begins partnership with Google Workspace

        • Interactive display company, Avocor has announced its global partnership with Google Workspace and the launch of two all-in-one video conferencing and digital whiteboarding devices, the Google Meet Series One Desk 27 and Board 65.

          These two new touch-enabled video devices expand the Google Meet Series One hardware portfolio for millions of Google Workspace users. These Series One devices give Google Workspace customers the most effective means to collaborate for every situation and space, from the desktop to the conference room.

          To address the need for a more powerful personal collaboration tool at the desktop, Avocor and Google Workspace created Series One Desk 27. This 27-inch premium all-in-one touchscreen Google Meet device is also a desk monitor, laptop docking station, and digital whiteboard which integrates Google Workspace's popular Jamboard app. Ideal for personal workstations, including home offices and as a powerful shared tool on rotating hot desks, in privacy spaces and phone booths, Series One Desk 27 offers all the key features users need to see, hear, and contribute to any meeting as if they were together in the same room. 

          While Desk 27 is a personal collaboration device, Board 65 is designed to bring teams together for more efficient, equitable, and intuitive collaboration. The 65-inch Series One Board 65 can be wall-mountable in small-to-medium collaboration spaces and is ADA-compliant. It can also be placed on an optional purpose-built stand for mobility as a shared resource or for setting up spontaneous meetings anywhere. With an interactive touch display, Board 65 connects both in-person and remote meeting attendees, enabling everyone in the room or on a call, to see, hear, and contribute to meetings, brainstorming sessions, and impromptu huddle sessions equally. Meeting participants can also quickly connect their laptops via USB-C for power, device control and instant content sharing. 

          Scott Hix, CEO, Avocor said, “creating meeting equity for teams who are both in-person and remote has never been more important to our global customers and partners, and a shared commitment to supporting meeting equity for the more than 6 million businesses that use Google Workspace is what drove us to create a strategic partnership with Google Workspace. Working together to expand the Google Meet Series One family with Desk 27 and Board 65, we’re now able to offer everyone meeting equity through shared devices for team meeting spaces and a personal device for your desktop – elevating the ability to see, hear and participate from anywhere. By leveraging the power of Google Meet, combined with the sophistication and wide range of capabilities that Avocor has in interactive collaboration hardware, we are helping customers to connect and succeed in the evolved modern workplace.” 

          Dave Citron, director of product management for Google Meet and Meet hardware added, “Google Workspace users logged more than 1 trillion video minutes in 2020 and the number of Google Meet video users continues to grow, so we are pleased to work with Avocor to bring exciting new hardware options to our customers. The best video and collaboration experiences bring together Google Meet and Meet hardware—accelerating overall productivity. We partnered with Avocor to give Google Workspace customers access to one of the best collaboration-first interactive touchscreen technologies on the market. We’re excited to introduce these new Google Meet Series One solutions with Avocor to help Google Workspace customers to get more done.” 

          General availability is expected in late Q4 2021 for Desk 27 and Q1 2022 for Board 65. Both will be sold exclusively by Avocor through the Google Workspace global network of authorised resellers.
