Avocor is working with Microsoft to introduce Windows collaboration displays, a new category of large interactive displays that will help teams connect, collaborate, and perform.

The new collaboration displays are fully compatible with Windows 10 and deliver Office 365 and Microsoft Teams at room scale.

"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, VP 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."

The new 4K 20-point touch displays will offer pen and inking capabilities that enable people to use 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 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 use the environmental data they collect to make real-time decisions.
