This is really cool, unlike other enterprise teleconference vendors, this is single fee up-front and free ongoing.

Can you chromecast to a chromebox? If so this can replace the crap load of Apple TVs we have at work, great for the 1/2 of folks that're on Thinkpads.

edit: missed "includes first year's $250 management & support fee"

You can do better than Chromecast with the Chromebox setup, you can share your screen, window, or document, into the hangout so that all participants can see it. You can do this now with Hangouts, you don't need the Chromebox.

We use this at Google for all of our video conferencing, and have for years. It's very well battle tested.

Edit: It looks like there's a $250/year fee per Chromebox. I'm not sure if that's good or bad compared to other vendors. You can connect from your computer or phone for free though.

Not free ongoing.

Assuming your Thinkpad-toting friends are running Windows... http://www.airsquirrels.com/airparrot/

Thought it said 250 per year after first year.
