Configuring your Chromebox

Chromebox for meetings
21
Before you begin using your device
for video conferencing
Setup requirements
Room size and setup
Your Chromebox for meetings system is designed for a 3-6 person
conference room, though it works well in rooms of 2-10 people.
We recommend a room that contains either a long table with
the monitor at one end (optimal), or a round table. We do not
recommend using Chromebox for meetings with rooms set up in a
classroom style.
The room must have the following:
• Live Ethernet port (for wired network connections)
• AC power outlet
Network requirements
Your Chromebox for meetings device works with both wired and
wireless networks. The network requirements are the same as those
for Hangouts. In addition, we recommend a minimum bandwidth of
1 mbps or 2 mbps (up/down) for group video conferencing.
TIP: Although you can use your Chromebox for meetings device over a
wireless network connection, we recommend using a wired network
connection for best sound and video quality.
Space requirements
• For the Chromebox for meetings device, you must have a 50 mm
x 145 mm x 145 mm / 1.97 in. x 5.71 in. x 5.71 in. (H x W x L) space
available to mount the device or place it on a table.
• For the speakerphone, you must have at least a 55 mm x 140 mm
x 150 mm / 2.17 in. x 5.51 in. x 5.91 in. (H x W x L) space available
to place the unit on the table or mount it on the wall.
• The universal hook mount on the camera fits the width on most
standard monitors.
22
Chromebox for meetings
Display requirements and placement
Your Chromebox for meetings work with LCD, LED, plasma, and
projector-type monitors and televisions. The display must have an
HDMI or DisplayPort input. The screen resolution must be at least
1280 x 720 pixels. For best video quality, we recommend a resolution
of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
You can place the display on a table against one wall, or mount
the display on a wall or ceiling for a projector unit. Note that if you
mount the display, you may need to drill holes and conceal cables.
If you have an existing video conferencing system in the room, you
may be able to repurpose the existing setup for your Chromebox for
meetings system.
Speakerphone placement
The best speakerphone placement depends on the size and layout
of the conference room:
• For rooms where participants sit at one end of the room facing
the display, we recommend placing the speakerphone at the
end of the table closest to the Chromebox for meetings and the
display.
• In larger rooms where participants sit talking around a table
independent of the position of the display, we recommend
placing the speakerphone in the center of the table.
Connectors and accessories
Depending on your setup, you may need the following:
• CAT5e Ethernet cable for wired network connection (included)
• Chromebox for meetings wall mount for wall mounting (included)
• USB extension cable for camera for distances exceeding 5 feet
(one cable included)
• USB extension cable for speakerphone for distances exceeding 3
feet (one cable included)
TIP: If you need extension cables for both the camera and the
speakerphone, you can purchase a second one separately.
Chromebox for meetings
23
• Cable concealers, if needed for wall mounting
NOTE: The cable concealers for wall mounting are not included in the
package and must be purchased separately.
IMPORTANT: The included cable for the camera is 5 feet long, and
the included cable for the speakerphone is 3 feet long. If your setup
of the display, Chromebox for meetings, and peripherals requires
longer distances, you may need to purchase additional USB extension
cables.
Setup your system
Mount your Chromebox for meetings
You can mount your Chromebox for meetings behind the display. Use
a mounting bracket to attach the Chromebox for meetings to your
display or to any VESA (100 mm)-compatible location. A mounting
bracket comes included with your Chromebox for meetings package.
Place your camera
Place your camera on top of the display.
TIP: Keep the camera as close to eye level as possible.
