At Computex last month, Microsoft rolled out its Windows Collaboration Display, a new category of device with support from Sharp. At its own Inspire conference this week, the company showcased another OEM partner.
Avocor, a major player in collaboration displays debuted its Windows Collaboration Display. The device comes with 4K resolutions and runs at 60 Hertz. Avocor says its display will connect to any Windows 10 PC through a USB-C cable.
Other specifications include 20-point touch support to enhance same-screen collaboration. Inking is fully supported for those who would interact with and use Windows Ink. Integrated cameras, far field microphones, and stereo speakers complete the multimedia picture.
Azure IoT Smart Spaces is managed through built-in sensors. This means facility managers can use data to make real-time decisions. The new device will be launched before the end of the summer.
“Avocor is working with Microsoft to accelerate the customer experience so it's easy and effective,” said Scott Hix, CEO Avocor. “We have worked together with Microsoft to ensure the Windows collaboration displays by Avocor perform flawlessly, maximize the Microsoft 365 experience for teams and integrate seamlessly into every enterprise.”
Windows Collaboration Display
Microsoft's Nick Parker described in a blog post how the Windows Collaborative Displays work within an enterprise environment.
“Windows Collaboration Displays [are] large, interactive displays [that] will let people experience Microsoft 365 collaboration tools—Office, Teams, and Whiteboard—at room scale, and [they] include built-in sensors that can connect to Azure IoT spatial intelligence capabilities.
This incredible technology will allow facility managers to utilize environmental data to make real-time decisions. A variety of collaboration displays, from Sharp and Avocor will be available later this year.”
