Together with Microsoft, famous for introducing the Surface Hub, Avocor is building Windows collaboration displays to enhance and accelerate teamwork, increasing productivity and collaboration in the workplace. 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.
"The new Windows collaboration displays by Avocor will make teamwork easier and more efficient by making it possible for people to extend their PC experience and applications like Microsoft PowerPoint, Teams and Whiteboard to a large interactive display that has been designed from the onset to be fully compatible and easy to use."
Ruston Panabaker, Vice President IoT Solutions - Microsoft
Windows collaboration displays by Avocor feature integrated AV with a premium conference camera, stereo speakers, far-field microphones, fine-tipped stylus with eraser and will easily connect to any Windows 10 PC via a single Type C cable. The cable transmits 4K video, touch, USB control, internet and power for fast frustration-free use. Smart switching makes multiple-user collaboration fast and simple.
Uniquely, our WCD includes inbuilt IoT sensors that connect to the Microsoft Azure Digital Twins platform. These sensors gather and feedback instant information and environmental data such as room temperature and light levels to the Azure platform, providing intelligent data to facilities managers. Users can utilize the data they collect to make real-time room adjustments, future room decisions and investment planning, maximising the meeting room ROI.
Avocor and Microsoft have worked together to create an innovative single-cable solution that immediately and intelligently connects a Windows 10 PC to the display. It allows for the immediate control of the camera and mic for video and audio, as well as providing hard-wire Ethernet connection and power to the laptop. No more struggling with cycling through the source, searching through a sea of connection cables or ports - bringing power cables to meetings or struggling with WiFi and passwords. What used to take 10 minutes and cause undue stressed and distraction is now a seamless, single-cable connection that takes seconds.
