The Microsoft Team is back in snowy Seattle after an amazing week at Integrated Systems Europe in Amsterdam last week!
This was the first presence for Microsoft Teams Devices along with the Surface team at the ISE conference. Jointly, we showcased Microsoft’s broad portfolio of conferencing and collaboration devices across personal and shared spaces for Microsoft Teams.
Our booth staff was very busy over the course of the week delivering hundreds of demos of Microsoft Teams, Office 365, and Surface, providing guided booth tours of our different spaces which included Huddle Space, Meeting Room, Executive Office, and our Devices Bar, and meetings with our key customers and channel partners.
Windows Collaboration Displays
Microsoft showcased the first two WCDs from Sharp and Avocor that will be available for customers to enhance their meeting experience with high-resolution multi-touch & pen displays that include integrated stereo speakers, as well as Microsoft, certified far-field microphones and camera, so customers can easily use the best of Microsoft 365 collaboration tools – from Windows and Office to Microsoft Whiteboard and Microsoft Teams – at room scale, and all backed by the intelligent cloud. A simple, one-cable connections make all your apps and content available on the Windows Collaboration Display and even charges your PC. In addition to being teamwork devices, Windows collaboration displays include built-in sensors, such as presence detection, that connect to Azure IoT, so users can find available collaboration spaces and facility managers can utilize the data they collect to make real-time decisions.
It was great to have the Surface family including Surface Hub integrated into our booth presence with our other Microsoft Teams devices last week. Surface Hub is a powerful, pen and touch-enabled large-screen collaboration device with integrated Windows 10 computer, so it runs applications (Microsoft and third-party) natively. In addition to wireless Miracast support and wired projection capabilities, you can also sign-in to the Surface Hub directly to access your cloud content, making it super easy to view and edit your files. Surface Hub is also a great platform for remote meetings. Last summer, Microsoft Teams was introduced on Surface Hub and customers are loving the experience of one-touch meeting join and large-screen remote participant view. Surface Hub empowers teams to collaborate and brainstorm and is great for collaboration spaces like the huddle and open spaces.
Excitement continues to build for Surface Hub 2S, which will start shipping in select markets next quarter!
