Acer has announced the CXV2 Chromebox, a video conference solution that supports up to 15 conference members across various devices.

Unveiling the CXV2 this week, Acer has revealed that the product boots up in less than 10 seconds, also said to be ‘easy to set up and manage’. Discussing the Chromebox via a press release, the group has said this is the latest addition to Acer’s portfolio of Chrome OS products, which includes Chromebooks, Chromeboxes and Chromebases.

In a press release, Acer added:

“According to data from Gartner, Acer Group is currently the world’s leading Chromebook brand with over 34% market share for the first three quarters of 2015.”

The CXV2 Chromebox is powered by an i7 processor and Intel HD graphics, arriving with a high-quality camera, remote control, microphone and speaker.

Acer’s on-board Chromebox camera supports up to Full HD 1080p resolution, we’re told, which is good news for businesses looking for a crisp picture during video calls. It’s also equipped with autofocus and automatic low-light correction, working in harmony with the omni-directional microphone.

When it comes to security, Acer has promised a ‘simple and secure’ user experience, thanks to the fact that the CXV2 automatically updates itself every six weeks to ensure the latest security features are running as they should. On top of that, all the data on the Chromebox is encrypted, Acer has confirmed.

At the time of writing, there’s no word on when or where the Chromebox will become available. We’re also yet to hear of a price for the new gadget. We’ll keep you posted.
