Sharp Imaging and Information Company of America (SIICA) announced today the first Windows collaboration display with Microsoft's Skype for Business certification.
The next generation 4K Ultra HD display is designed to support and improve team work. The 70" Class (69.5" diagonal) interactive display meets Microsoft's specifications, combining Sharp's touch technology and sensors that can work with Microsoft Azure Digital Twins to monitor collaboration spaces.
The display is paired with an integrated camera with 4K sensor, far field microphone and speakers. The USB-C connectivity also provides simple single connection.
The Windows collaboration display has built-in sensors that can connect to the Microsoft Azure Digital Twins IoT platform and other commercially available cloud and subscription services, such as the upcoming Sharp Synappx WorkSpaces, as part of a smart building environment.
These features are part of Microsoft's vision to bring the power of the intelligent cloud into the workplace, using a mix of AI, IoT, and productivity tools to create a more productive and collaborative environment.
The display has been designed to work with the familiar Microsoft tools that individuals and organizations will already be using in their workplace. Office 365 provides businesses with a digital hub for teamwork through Microsoft Teams, a platform that brings conversations, content and tools together in one place for easier group collaboration.
The 70" Class (69.5" diagonal) interactive display also features Sharp's Pen-on-Paper experience, an instant and accurate writing feel close to using a real pen on writing paper. The 10-Point P-CAP Capacitive Touch helps to create this touch experience which means users feel more confident when presenting.
The Windows collaboration display is expected to ship in the North American market in the coming months.
