Q. Where can I get the Surface Hub 3 image?
A. You can download it from the Bare Metal Recovery Store, enter your serial number in the recovery page and the option to download the latest image is there. Here is the link.

Q. We see more and more OEMs whitelabeling certified products that are already in the market from other OEMS. @Michael, is the new Lenovo ThinkSmart 180 the same product compared with Jabra P50? Outside of course Jabras management features etc
A. The device is fuly supported by Lenovo, the drivers say Lenovo etc. It means Lenovo have stopped selling their soundbar. They remain selling their All in One Windows Bar. Here is a link to the Lenovo site

Q. Whats the solution for having 25 meeting rooms using a Crestron Flex UC-Engine that will only support Windows 10. Quite a cost to replace the systems just to go to Windows 11.
