As webcam technology continues to develop, video conferencing has become more commonplace, allowing people to conduct meetings or just stay in touch, while another recent aspect of camera technology that is starting to gain traction is facial recognition. To this end, HP has recently released the EliteOne 1000 G1 All-in-One Desktop Computer, a multi-faceted system that provides immersive video and audio engagement for creating rich video-conferencing environments. It is equipped with a front-facing 480p IR camera that supports Windows 10 Hello, front- and rear-facing 2MP / 1080p Full HD webcams, 2W stereo speakers, and dual integrated mics. Depending on your needs, the EliteOne 1000 G1 can be configured with a 27" UHD 4K WLED anti-glare IPS display and a 1TB 7200 rpm SATA 2.5" hard drive or 256GB PCIe M.2 SSD, or a 23.8" Full HD IPS anti-glare multi-touch or non-touch display with 256GB of PCIe M.2 SSD storage. Using the multi-touch display will allow users to take advantage of 10-point capacitive functionality to utilize the touch gestures and functions in Windows 10 Pro to further improve accessibility and productivity.
Aside from differences in screen size, storage, and multi-touch functionality, both the 27 and 23.8" models feature a 3.4 GHz Intel® Core™ i5-7500 Quad-Core processor, 8GB of 2400 MHz DDR4 memory that can be upgraded to 32GB, Intel HD Graphics 630, DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI 2.0a outputs, USB 3.0 Type-C and USB 3.0 Type-A inputs, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and an SD card reader. Despite the difference in screen size, both displays feature a typical contrast ratio of 1000:1, wide viewing angles of 178°, and tilt support of 5° forward and 25° back, and more.
HP’s EliteOne 1000 G1 All-in-One Desktop Computer is well suited for use in home, office, or scholastic environments, and its AiO form factor will help reduce the clutter on your desk that is typically associated with larger desktop setups and multiple peripherals. If you’re concerned about the privacy issues that can arise from having a webcam, don’t be, because HP has designed these systems with a pop-up privacy camera.
