Powered by Google Hangouts Meet, Google's video conferencing software, the NMP660 facilitate presentations, brainstorming, and decision-making - even when employees, clients, or students are spread across the globe.
The ViewSonic NMP660 Chromebox is Google GMS certified and fully supports Google Play and the Chrome web store for a variety of apps. It can also manage, through the Google Management console, education and corporate applications.

"Utilizing an interactive large format display or monitor alongside a ViewSonic Chromebox delivers a compact yet powerful solution with the speed, simplicity and security of Chrome OS," said Andy Chien, product marketing manager at ViewSonic Americas. "Because Chrome OS is becoming more of an industry standard with enterprise and education peripherals, the ViewSonic NMP 660 Chromebox is an affordable device to manage the platform. We see a limitless amount of solutions for the ViewSonic NMP660 Chromebox, from using it in the classroom and boardroom to leveraging it as a tool for digital signage installations."

"ViewSonic offers innovative display solutions worldwide. With the launch of ViewSonic NMP660 Chromebox, our worldwide customers could also enjoy the benefits brought by Chrome OS."

With ChromeOS? Yes. Throw fully functional Android, not AndroidTV, on it and that changes. Viewsonic is normally smarter than this. :confused:

Yeah, that seems to be missing. It''s pricier than Roku and Apple TV.. and Apple has Dolby HDR.
