Computex 2018 | Microsoft introduces Windows Collaboration Displays for the modern meeting room
Microsoft took meeting room collaboration to the next level with the Surface Hub and the recently announced Surface Hub 2 but what if you wanted to just extend your PC to room scale without paying through the nose for a Surface Hub? Enter Windows Collaboration Displays.
At Computex 2018, Microsoft announced that Windows Collaboration Displays will extend the capabilities of traditional Windows 10 PCs for the modern meeting room. These new class of devices will let team members use Microsoft 365 tools such as Office, Teams, and Whiteboard in a modern collaborative environment. These devices also come with built-in sensors that connect to Azure IoT spatial intelligence capabilities. That means, these devices can intelligently control the heating and cooling requirements of a meeting room and also, manage room booking systems based on how the meeting space is actually being used.
Microsoft said Sharp and Avocor will be introducing Windows Collaboration Displays later this year. Hopefully, they come at various screen sizes and price points to make them appealing to both educators and large enterprises alike.
