At Computex in Taipei, Taiwan this week Microsoft has announced a new type of conference room display it calls “Windows Collaboration Displays”. These are essentially large displays with cameras, mics, and sensors that you can hook up to your existing Windows 10 PCs.

Nick Parker, Microsoft's corporate vice president of Consumer and Device Sales:

These large, interactive displays will let people experience Microsoft 365 collaboration tools: Office, Teams and Whiteboard at room scale, and include built-in sensors that can connect to Azure IoT spatial intelligence capabilities. This incredible technology will allow facility managers to utilize environmental data to make real-time decisions.

Like Microsoft’s own Surface Hub, these displays offer high resolutions, and support multi-touch and pen input. Microsoft isn’t making these collaboration displays though; the company says a variety of them will be made available by third parties such as Sharp and Avocor later this year.
