• Sharp introduces first certified Windows collaboration display

        • Sharp has announced the availability of the world’s first Windows collaboration display with Microsoft’s Skype for Business certification. 

          The next-generation 4K Ultra HD display is designed to support and improve teamwork. The 70” 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.   

          Birgit Jackson, Commercial Director Visual Solutions said, “Sharp is proud to be enabling the next generation of collaborative working and team productivity with the world’s first Windows collaboration display – you simply walk in, plugin and work together – but it also monitors your environment and will help to make those conditions optimal. A display is an ideal device to become more intelligent. It’s the centrepiece of the meeting room and your window to the rest of your team and the rest of the world.”

          The Windows collaboration display from Sharp provides businesses with the tools to instantly connect and collaborate. The world’s first-ever display to achieve Skype for Business certification is paired with an integrated high-quality camera with 4K sensor, far-field microphone and speakers to provide users with seamless and high-quality audio and video experience.  The USB-C also provides simple single connection, reducing the amount of time spent setting up meeting equipment.

           

          According to Sharp’s report on ‘Creating the perfect meeting environment,’ which reviews the impact of indoor environmental conditions on office worker performance, employers could improve worker performance by 20 per cent simply by increasing the fresh air supply in offices and meeting rooms. The Internet of Things (IoT) sensor unit on the Windows collaboration display will monitor this type of data and feed this back to the Azure Digital Twins platform to help facilities managers monitor workspaces.

          These advanced 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. Businesses will be able to use this data to improve the management of heating, cooling and room booking systems based on how space is really used.

          The Windows collaboration display from Sharp has been designed to work seamlessly with the familiar Microsoft tools that individuals and organisations 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” interactive display also offers the ultimate collaborative experience thanks to 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 intuitive touch experience which means users feel more confident when presenting.

          The Windows collaboration display is available now through Sharp with pricing information available on request. For more information visit: https://www.sharp.co.uk/cps/rde/xchg/gb/hs.xsl/-/html/windows-collaboration-display.htm
