Business Transformation

Plantronics is an innovative technology company searching for a way to reduce meeting start-up time and better engage remote meeting participants. The solution? Extending their Microsoft Lync solution into the meeting room.

Watch their story

An integrated solution

All of the room components are designed to work together. This creates a single integrated solution for audio, video and data collaboration that simplifies installation, support and ensures the components function as a single system.

Systems designed for any room

SMART offers 6 different sizes of room systems designed for 2 to 16 people and ranging from 100 to 300 square feet. Systems feature 55", 70" and 84" displays.

Proximity detection

The interactive display will automatically turn on when it detects motion in the room. This saves energy costs when not in use and allows quick access to the technology when meetings start.

Wide angle camera

SMART's camera features a 109 degree field of view (the largest available for a Lync Room System) allowing remote users to see the entire room without the need for pan/tilt/zoom functionality.

Natural videoconferencing

SMART's camera reduces eye gaze, making remote and in-room participants feel as though they are looking each other in the eye.

Object awareness

The SMART display automatically detects a finger or a pen without special mode switches or buttons and allows users to erase ink on the display with their palm.

Administrative console

The large 11" room control lets users change the screen layout, display presentation content and email notes at the end of the meeting.

Instantaneous startup

Start your meeting with one touch.

Microsoft Lync interface

Users who know Microsoft Lync will find it easy and intuitive to use the SMART Room System. It maintains the Microsoft Lync interface they are familiar with.

Support for scheduled or ad hoc meetings

The SMART Room System supports the ability to start ad hoc whiteboarding sessions or to set up scheduled meetings. Either meeting starts with just the touch of a button.

Interactive Sharing

Interactive Sharing expands collaboration capabilities beyond PowerPoint and the Lync Whiteboard by adding multi-touch and inking over any content within the SMART Room System meeting room.

Customer Testimonials

The SMART Room System for Microsoft® Lync® eliminates meeting room frustrations and optimizes unparalleled collaboration. Don’t take our word for it. See what our customers are saying.


“Now we have meaningful, real conversations.”

- Peter Scott, Director, End User Technology


“Improves our ability to collaborate across the organization, no matter where all the meeting attendees are connecting from.”

- Tom Gill, CIO

“I was just recently in this meeting and someone mentioned “Man, I wish we had a white board.” And so I started a white boarding session, and I just started drawing while everyone continued to talk. It's something I would not have been able to do previous to a SMART room type of experience in the room.

- Boris Seibert, Sr. Director Alliances, Plantronics

“The deployment of the SMART Room System was relatively easy because the solution is fully integrated from a single vendor (SMART), requiring a minimal investment from our IT group to get it set up. The system provides a seamless, one-touch, “always on” type of experience freeing up the IT team from support calls.”

- Beau Wilder, Director, Strategic Solutions Planning, Plantronics

“I think I would be interviewing an organization on how they communicate and collaborate, not only internally but with their customers. And if they didn't have collaboration platforms like Lync and SMART boards, I probably wouldn't join the company. I'd just be ineffective.

- Boris Seibert, Sr. Director Alliances, Plantronics


It just works. Since we deployed SMART Room Systems there hasn’t been one complaint.”

“Previously our engineers had been sharing drawings via email – it was slow, taxing on the servers and cumbersome. SMART Room System changed that. Collaboration became real-time and eliminated these inefficiencies.”

This is just the start. We’re really interested in the next generation of SMART Room System. Being able to plug in your laptop and annotate over any content - our engineers are just drooling over this.”

- Steven Graham, Global Infrastructure Architect


“Meetings can now reliably start within seconds, eliminating the stress normally involved with our legacy AV solutions.”

“We have achieved dramatic reduction in costs, implementation times and support turnaround due to vastly reduced component complexity, averaging 60% savings per room.”

- Greg Gerwing, Solutions Architect

Marquette University

“With over 2,000 active Lync users, the SMART Room System was a perfect fit.“

“Press one button to quickly get to the heart of the meeting.”

- Dan Smith, Deputy CIO


“The SMART Room System... immediately changed the way we did business.”

“One of the key benefits was the ability to conduct architecture design sessions remotely without losing the advantages of being there in person.”

- Bryan Letcher, Information Worker Architect
