ThinkSmart View Plus

As the way people work continues to evolve, it is vital to stay connected and engaged, regardless of how and where they work. The innovative ThinkSmart View Plus running Microsoft Teams display is a solution that enables hybrid work by increasing productivity, flexibility, and collaboration through its personal and hotdesking experiences.

ThinkSmart View Plus is an integrated device with a 27-inch multi-touch display, premium video and audio, and built-in compute for powerful productivity and collaboration.

Designed to enhance personal productivity, ThinkSmart View Plus offers a customized, secure, and flexible Microsoft Teams display experience by providing access to Teams chat, calendar, and files, while also enabling workers to join meetings through the device. When connected to a user’s PC, the ThinkSmart View Plus enables screensharing between the two devices to simultaneously view content and presenters. Additionally, ThinkSmart View Plus easily shifts to monitor mode when connected to a PC through USB-C.

ThinkSmart View Plus running Teams display also offers hotdesking capabilities, a hybrid work solution that allows employees to quickly locate flexible workspaces to touch down and make calls, set up ad-hoc meetings, or sign into their personal Teams experience. Once signed-in, employees can enjoy smooth transitions from their home office to work office without a complicated set-up, all while having a customized Teams experience. Upon sign out, user’s personal information is removed from the device—minimizing security risks.

ThinkSmart View Plus lets team members interact with impact. Featuring a passive stylus pen and a Microsoft whiteboard application, users can explore big ideas together with the device. Users can also hear and be heard more clearly with a premium soundbar with two 5w speakers and four-mic array, while the 4K IRGB camera with auto framing and AI security delivers crisp, clear images.

While in monitor mode, ThinkSmart View Plus allows for comfortable productivity with its ergonomic stand and convenient cell phone stand on the base. The device is also VESA mountable to walls.

The ThinkSmart View Plus utilizes the Qualcomm QCS8250 System-on-Chip (SoC), a purpose-built chip for enterprise and commercial IoT applications from Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. The premium-tier processor is designed to provide maximum performance for compute-intensive camera and Edge AI applications, and also features support of Wi-Fi 6.

“Lenovo’s customers are looking for smart, flexible solutions to empower team members so they can collaborate better in a range of workplace scenarios,” said Shannon MacKay, General Manager of Worldwide Smart Collaboration Business, Lenovo. “The ThinkSmart View Plus is designed with the functionality to help increase productivity, innovation, and employee satisfaction.”

As with all Lenovo ThinkSmart meeting room products, the ThinkSmart View Plus comes standard with three years of Lenovo’s Premier Support, providing access to advanced technicians 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. It also includes one year of Lenovo’s value-added software and services:
