Avocor partners with Microsoft to build a new category of advanced collaboration displays that enable teamwork, creativity and productivity
Avocor, the fastest-growing collaboration display solution company in the world, today announced it is building Windows collaboration displays that feature the world’s most advanced touchscreen technologies to enhance collaboration and enable teamwork. The new collaboration displays are fully compatible with Windows 10 and deliver the power and productivity of Office 365 and Microsoft Teams at room scale. They offer people new ways to connect, collaborate and deliver results.
Both Avocor and Microsoft understand that the most effective businesses have a team-based, collaborative culture and are focused on enabling creativity and productivity. And companies that promote collaborative working are five times as likely to be high-performing. In the modern workplace teams come in all shapes and sizes and can be local or spread across the globe. To enable teamwork, you need tools that empower people to seamlessly connect in a huddle room, conference room, or in any team space.
“Microsoft is making teamwork easier than ever before, and the new Windows collaboration displays enable this by providing a room-size display on which people can work together, using apps like Microsoft Teams and Whiteboard to get projects done,” said Ruston Panabaker, Vice President IoT solutions, Microsoft. “We are thrilled that Avocor is working with us to launch the Windows collaboration display category, and that they are bringing a line of innovative displays to market that will be compatible with Windows 10 applications, Touch screen and Inking capabilities.”
Collaboration displays built by Avocor deliver a new level of empowerment for people to work together in real-time and collaborate in efficient and intuitive ways. These brand-new 4K 20-point touch displays will offer flawless pen and inking capabilities that enable people to easily use the best of Microsoft 365 collaboration tools – from Windows and Office to Microsoft Whiteboard and Microsoft Teams – at room scale, all backed by the intelligent cloud.
The upcoming Windows collaboration product line by Avocor will feature integrated cameras, stereo speakers, far field microphones, and pen., and will easily connect to any Windows 10 PC via a single USB-C. In addition to being teamwork devices, Windows collaboration displays from Avocor will include built-in sensors that connect to Azure IoT, so facility managers can utilize the environmental data they collect to make real-time decisions.
“Avocor is changing how people can collaborate and working with a partner like Microsoft accelerates the customer experience so it’s easy and effective,” said Scott Hix, CEO Avocor. “Windows collaboration display products by Avocor will be an ideal solution for huddle spaces, offices and meeting rooms and seamlessly integrate into any Enterprise.”
Although we will not be showing a Windows collaboration displays at InfoComm, The Avocor F series F-6550, an interactive display with inking and touch will be in Microsoft’s Infocomm 2018 booth N2814 and Avocor’s booth N2714. Avocor will also preview a display that will show features of the Azure IOT solutions at InfoComm. Pricing, display sizes and availability for the additional Windows collaboration displays built by Avocor will be announced this summer.
