It features a 360-degree rotatable 11.6 inch display, and runs on Windows 10 IoT Enterprise. Other features include Dolby Audio Premium sound experience, 360-degree array microphones and a touch display to control the meeting and large external displays.

Peter Han, Vice President, Partner Devices and Solutions, Microsoft remarked on the ThinkSmart Hub 500.

“Lenovo consistently delivers innovative devices and solutions that meet the unique needs of business customers, and the ThinkSmart Hub 500 is no exception…“This second-generation Skype Room Systems solution from Lenovo will transform meeting rooms, and enable rich collaborative Skype for Business experiences.”
