Video conferencing company Zoom has launched new hardware to help users work remotely. Called the Zoom for Home – DTEN ME, the device is essentially a large touchscreen tab. It is priced at $599 ( 45,037 approximately).

Zoom’s DTEN Me comes with a 27-inch touchscreen display. It has three web cameras. The device also features as many as eight noise-reducing microphones. As expected, it ships with Zoom app preloaded. Neat Bar and the Poly Studio X Series are its early partners.

Zoom’s first hardware has been developed by DTEN, a US-based company known for making appliances specifically for video conferencing.

Zoom claims the device has been developed with simplicity in mind. Users can simply launch the interface by entering a pairing code, akin to Facebook’s code generator. Once the interface has launched, you can access all the key functionalities. This includes starting a meeting or making a phone call.

The device also allows users to link the interface to your calendar. You can also share the screen. For this, the device uses ultrasonic pairing with a laptop or a smartphone. According to TechCrunch, the pairing is very similar to Bluetooth but uses sound frequency between 18 and 22KHz to connect the devices.

Zoom’s first-ever hardware will start shipping in August. Users in the US can place pre-orders for the device. There is no word on the availability of the device in markets outside the US.
