The Beam family of products, which includes BeamPro® and Beam®, is an industry-leading telepresence solution that combines mobility and video conferencing for an immersive communication experience everywhere conversations occur.

This smart presence system (SPS) needed to serve as a physical "body" for off-site employees, emphasizing face-to-face communication with onsite co-workers. Speck Design recognized multiple advanced A/V and motorized components that were needed to bring Beam to fruition. It was also crucial the exterior product design be warm, approachable, elegant, and easy for users to understand. Furthermore, Beam would need to be able to withstand some bumps and bruises along the way.
