Windows Collaboration Display by Microsoft

At the latest Computex keynote, Microsoft outlined their latest foray into shared work surface interfaces.


Built around Microsoft 365 features, now Office, Whiteboard, and Teams can be easily integrated with whatever a company may need, all as a part of the Windows Collaboration Display launch.

Using Microsoft’s Azure loT spatial intelligence program, sensors on the display board creates measurements of the room to generate adaptive models of the current space.

Spatial intelligence is nothing to sneer at either, as according to Microsoft “in an office environment spatial intelligence can enable better management of heating, cooling, and room-booking systems based on how the space is actually used.”  

Support ready to go

Microsoft has already partnered with a handful of third-party hardware manufacturers to create Collaboration Displays, such as Sharp and touchscreen manufacturer Avocor.

The displays will allow for both touchscreen and pen inputs, the attachment of stereo speakers, a microphone, and a built-in camera.

It’ll be some time before products hit the shelves, with no mention of price point just yet. Though it's expected to be less than that of the Surface Hub, so around US$9000.

Would you be inclined to shell-out $9,000 on a display? What do you think about the integration within your office? Let us know in our comments.
