Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, video conferencing service Zoom has become incredibly popular, helping those working from home to stay connected. Having just 10 million daily active users in December 2019, the app managed to bring in over 300 million by April 2020. In light of its success, the company is now expanding into the hardware market, launching its own product line named Zoom for Home to further enhance you work-from-home experience.
Since the Zoom is predominantly a software company, the actual manufacturing processes will be handled by third parties, which in the case of the very first launch will be DTEN, a manufacturer that usually designs technical solutions for conference rooms. The debut release titled Zoom for Home DTEN ME features a 27-inch monitor equipped with three in-built wide-angle cameras, eight separate microphones, and a touchscreen display that can be used for presentations or annotations. Designed to be more personal than conventional conference room machines, the device can also automatically sync all your contacts and calendar information, allowing you to stay on track with much more convenience.
The new Zoom for Home DTEN ME is now available for pre-orders, retailing for $600 USD. Head over to DTEN’s website to learn more.
Elsewhere in tech, Alibaba’s Jack Ma has sold some of his shares for $8.2 billion USD.
