Sharp has partnered with Microsoft to release a new class of large-format, interactive displays. The Windows collaboration display from Sharp is a 4K ultra-HD 70″ class (69.5″ diagonal) display that helps improve collaboration and meeting effectiveness by taking advantage of familiar Microsoft Office 365 apps to simplify meetings, extend the desktop to room scale, and communicate with teams in-person and remotely. This display promotes collaboration with simplified connectivity by offering laptop smart switching and mobile device wireless casting connectivity, and by enabling real-time collaboration using touch, ink, a built-in 4K HD videoconference camera and a dual microphone array. The device also includes a sensor hub that connects to Microsoft Azure IoT for Smart Spaces, enabling facility managers to collect real-time room data to make real-time decisions. This enables automatic detection, via built-in sensors, that captures room use, ambient lighting, temperature and other environmental data.
