Neat’s full device portfolio now certified for Microsoft Teams


Exciting news announced at Microsoft Ignite, the Neat Frame and Neat Bar Pro are now officially Microsoft Teams certified, which means their entire portfolio of devices is now certified for Microsoft Teams.

  • Near Bar – Microsoft Teams Room for small rooms
  • Neat Bar Pro – Microsoft Teams Room for medium rooms
  • Neat Pad – Microsoft Teams Panel
  • Neat Board – 65-inch multi-touch screen with Audio and Video – Microsoft Teams Room all in one
  • Neat Frame – Microsoft Teams Displays

All of Neat’s devices are Microsoft Teams Rooms for Android.

Ilya Bukshteyn, vice president of Microsoft Teams Devices: “The certification process for Neat’s devices has not only been rapid but also delightful for our joint customers, who appreciated how Neat’s hardware and especially Neat Symmetry video shined with Microsoft Teams and Teams Rooms. Neat is an exciting addition to our Teams partner ecosystem, and we look forward to our joint customers experiencing Teams through these elegant and innovative devices.”

The Neat frame is really interesting It is a 450 NITS 15.6 inch Full HD portrait touch screen device. I’m lucky to have one in my home office I have been testing, and I think it is a great fit for the executive at home, being an always-on device that is ready to go with great video, people framing, 4X Zoom and really impressive noise suppression.

Microsoft has announced plans for hot desking on Microsoft Teams display. With hot desking, employees can locate and reserve a desk in advance or from the device. They can sign in for their personalized Teams experience, and leave no personal data after signing out. This is coming to the Neat Frame later this year.

The Neat Bar Pro has a wide-angle telephoto lens and image depth sensor, which combined deliver 16x zoom.

At Ignite Microsoft also announced IntelliFrame. IntelliFrame enhances the focus and framing of in-room meeting attendees, so that meeting participants in the room each have their own, individual frame in the video gallery. For Teams Rooms outfitted with an intelligent camera capable of producing multiple video streams, IntelliFrame delivers an enhanced video gallery experience. This experience will be available in early 2023.
