Today HP Inc. introduced the EliteOne 800 G8 All-in-One (AiO) for more engaging collaboration and meaningful connections in hybrid work environments. HP also announced new commercial desktop PCs.
People want to make personal connections – whether with eye contact, body language, or clear and crisp audio. With 32% of office employees expected to work from home in the foreseeable future and 26% expected to split their time between home and office,1 technology that helps bridge the physical distance between team members and coworkers is critical.
“The pandemic has given us a fresh perspective on not only the importance of the PC, but better insight into how we collaborate, stay connected, and elevate the way we work at home and in the office,” said Andy Rhodes, Global Head of Commercial Systems and Display Solutions at HP. “Our premium desktop portfolio enables authentic and meaningful collaboration experiences and optimal productivity in new work environments.”
The HP EliteOne 800 G8 All-in-One is a virtual conference powerhouse for the home and the office. Available with a 23.8-inch or 27-inch diagonal display, and an integrated pop-up camera, the PC empowers users to show up in an authentic way and better connect with colleagues when they cannot be there in person. Powered by an 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor,2 the PC can handle resource-intensive projects and virtual meetings so users can multi-task and co-create quickly and reliably. At the same time, the HP security suite keeps user data safe and secure. Designed for collaboration, the EliteOne 800 AiO allows users to:
- See clearly and look their best. Making a personal connection in a virtual world starts with eye contact. The optional dual-facing 5MP camera3 ensures users are seen clearly. Intelligent face tracking follows and actively frames user movement so they can break free from their desk, move around, and stretch during virtual calls. Not only does the camera follow the user, but with a wider field of view with the popup webcam, users can look their best with a more flattering angle while giving them more room to roam during their calls. When it comes to lighting, auto scene detection automatically adjusts for optimal video, ensuring users look great any time of day.
- Hear clearly and sound their best. Minimize potential background sounds with premium audio features. AI-based noise reduction filters not only outbound noise, but inbound noise as well. This is the first HP PC with this enhanced experience and can filter over 350 million types of voices and noises. HP Dynamic Voice Leveling automatically adjusts the volume on voice to maintain consistent volume whether near or far from the microphone. HP Sound Calibration4 tunes audio for an immersive sound experience and HP Dynamic Audio5 uses AI-based technology to tune audio to speech, music, and movies while suppressing background noise.
- Work and be at their best. Users can optimize how they work in shared spaces. HP Run Quiet Design finely tunes the fans to keep systems running quiet and cool, minimizing distractions for users and those around them. HP Modern Standby delivers a ready-to-work experience by downloading emails, receiving network events, and making other important updates while the PC is asleep and connected to a network. Additionally, HP Presence Aware helps keep data secure by locking the PC when users step away and waking the PC when they return.
- Feel supported by an empowered IT team. IT teams are enabled with solutions to simplify how they deploy, secure, and manage their PC fleets. HP Manageability Integration Kit helps shorten the amount of time needed to setup PCs and allows IT to better manage the devices once deployed. HP Patch Assistant enables automation of software updates based on a schedule set by IT, with no end user dependency.
