Avocor today introduced the first Windows collaboration displays featuring touchscreen, Windows 10 and Microsoft 365. The first Windows collaboration displays by Avocor will ship in December of 2018.
Avocor says they worked with Microsoft to create a single-cable solution that connects a Windows PC to the display. It allows for immediate control of the camera and mic for video and audio, as well as providing hard-wire Ethernet connection and power to the laptop.
The displays are native 4K (3840×2160) resolution with 20-point touch, pen and inking capabilities with Microsoft 365 collaboration tools – from Windows and Office to Microsoft Whiteboard and Microsoft Teams – and Azure cloud. In addition to an integrated conferencing camera, the collaboration boards include stereo speakers, far-field microphones, a stylus with eraser and connection to a PC via a USB-C cable. The cable transmits video, touch, USB control, internet and power. It’s also integrated with a so-called smart switcher that switches to the input with a signal connected. In addition to being Teamwork devices, Windows collaboration displays from Avocor also include built-in sensors that connect to Azure Digital Twins, so facility managers can utilize the environmental data they collect to make real-time adjustments and future room and investment planning.
The 65-inch AVW-6555 Windows collaboration display by Avocor will ship in December 2018 and is available globally for $6,995 USD (£5,400 Pound Sterling; € 6,100 Euro). Additional sizes will be announced early in 2019.
