World's first Microsoft-certified interactive display with IoT sensor hub in the region

Sharp officially unveiled the world's first Microsoft-certified Windows collaboration display (PN-CD701), which features a built-in high quality 4K camera, built-in microphone, IoT sensor hub and works seamlessly with Microsoft 365 collaboration tools. 

Launched in the GCC, Africa and CIS countries, the Windows collaboration display from Sharp is the next generation 4K interactive display designed to support and improve team work. The 70-inch class (69.5-inches diagonal) interactive display meets Microsoft's specifications, combining Sharp's award-winning touch technology and sensors that can work with Microsoft Azure Digital Twins to monitor collaboration spaces.

The advanced feature of the Windows collaboration display brings the power of the intelligent cloud into the workplace, using a combination of IoT and productivity tools. Organisations will be able to use the IoT sensor data to improve the management of heating, cooling and room booking systems within a meeting room.

"Sharp is a technology pioneer and has always been at the forefront of innovation. Over a decade ago, Sharp was the first to introduce LCD-based interactive screens. Today, we are pleased to bring a revolution with the next generation collaboration device, the Windows collaboration display," said Sota Saito, deputy managing director, Sharp Middle East and Africa.

The Windows collaboration display from Sharp has been designed to work seamlessly with familiar Microsoft tools and applications such as Office 365, Skye for Business, Microsoft Teams, etc. that increase productivity and allows for collaboration among individuals in an organisation.
The interactive display also offers the ultimate user experience, thanks to Sharp's pen-on-paper solution and capacitive touch technology.

"Organisations and teams today want to experience 'smarter meetings' with more productive collaborations, better space utilisations and minimal setup. We now offer this possibility through the Windows collaboration display from Sharp," stated Bharat Gupta, deputy general manager at Sharp Middle East and Africa.

Equipped with USB-C connectivity, the Windows collaboration display offers simple single link from a connected device, which covers all the video, touch, and network data needs; it even charges the same. Additional integrated wireless casting makes it easy to share information from PCs, laptops, mobiles and tablets without the need for cables.

The PN-CD701 has an attractive and elegant edge to edge design. The on-screen display (OSD) buttons are discretely located on the front for quick and easy control. The high-quality video conferencing camera and IoT sensor hub have been integrated neatly on the top of the display. An integrated directional microphone picks up sound from anywhere in your collaboration space.

Unique IoT features of the Windows collaboration display from Sharp

. Air quality: The Windows collaboration display continually measures and analyses the ambient air quality.

. Temperature and humidity: The intelligent climate measurement can monitor temperature and humidity in a meeting room.
