Google has scaled Chromebox for meetings, introducing new hardware that will better support larger groups of people who need to hold remote meetings.

A new 1080p pan-tilt-zoom camera can cover more area to help large groups chatting see one another better, while a new bi-directional microphone and speaker will make sure everyone is heard.

Chromebox for meetings users can also hook two monitors up to the hardware, and share their screens in full-screen mode. On the back-end, administrators have more control over monitoring and deploying hardware, as well as more granular control over whom to give administrative powers.

The new hardware doesn’t come cheap, though. At $1,999, it’s an expensive office communication solution, but may be a good option for larger companies with bigger remote teams.
