Microsoft To Launch Windows Collaboration Display System Later In 2018

Earlier, the tech giant, Microsoft was in news for their big acquisition with GitHub. The rumor only made a chaos for many users and made them migrate to the competitor’s platform as a result of panic. But the commitment made by the tech giant has been proved successful in controlling the chaos.

“Now, Microsoft has something in their basket to hit the world. This time they came up with the windows collaboration displays.”

Windows Collaboration Displays is among the most intriguing feature to make the highlights out of the Computex keynote today of Microsoft. However, there is not much information provided by the company about the hardware platform.

In the first look, the platform looks similar to the firm’s own Surface Hub digital whiteboard, but as per the company, in reality, it is a non-compute device improving the experience of a desktop PC to room scale. To put it plainly, it will work in collaboration with large displays, instead of as a stand-alone device.

The new system is developed focusing on the tools of Microsoft 365 and is intended to work with the software of companies like Teams, Office, and Whiteboard. The sensors placed on the platform uses the capabilities of Azure IoT spatial intelligence. A blog is written to provide more detail information about the technology used, but the platform itself is made using the room measurements to create portable models.

Microsoft has already partnered with some of the 3rd-party hardware makes to develop Collaboration Displays which has Avocor and Sharp. The system will support pen inputs and touchscreen inputs, a camera, stereo speakers, and microphone as well.

The products will be accessible in the market later this year. However, there is no comment made about the price of the system, but Microsoft promising “low price points,” which means they will be available under $9,000, a price of Microsoft’s Surface Hub.
