The Microsoft Team is back in snowy Seattle after an amazing week at Integrated Systems Europe in Amsterdam last week!



Teams Devices Event.png


 


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.

Microsoft Surface


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!

Two years ago we introduced the next generation of Skype Room Systems, a center of room control with one-touch join, to add the best audio and video to your meetings.  We started with one hardware partner and now work with six leading device manufacturers, to deliver the best quality experiences for both Skype for Business and Microsoft Teams meetings. To date, customers have conducted more than 130 million minutes of meetings through Skype Room Systems. In light of this momentum, and to mark our commitment to making Teams a complete meetings and calling solution, we are rebranding Skype Room Systems as Microsoft Teams Rooms.


 


This rebranding signifies the continued delivery of features being built to enhance Teams meetings experiences. Our goal is to extend Teams meetings into every space from small huddle rooms to large conference rooms.


We’ve recently announced and delivered several capabilities that enhance the Teams Meetings experience in meeting rooms:



  • Proximity detection (coming soon), makes it easy to discover and add nearby, available Microsoft Teams Rooms to any meeting.

  • Companion experiences with mobile, to join your devices in content-only mode.

  • Support for dual screen rooms.


And it’s important to note that Microsoft Teams Rooms still work with Skype for Business calls and meetings.


 


 


Meetings Simplified


Meetings are easy to schedule, simply use Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Teams to invite your conference rooms to a meeting just as easily as inviting your colleagues.


 


Schedule Teams.pngSchedule Teams in Outlook


 


One touch-join


Instantly start your meeting from the center of the room control with one touch.


 


Teams Meeting onscreen.pngMicrosoft Teams Rooms Console


 


Proximity based meeting join, for an available Microsoft Teams Room, the Microsoft Teams client on your PC (and soon from mobile) has a proximity sensor that detects the room and you can add the room easily to the meeting.


 


Proximity Join.pngProximity join from Microsoft Teams


 


Inside the meeting room, the front of the room display and console will show that you are trying to add the room, and simply accept the incoming invitation on the console to bring the room into the meeting.


 


Join from Teams Rooms.pngProximity join from Microsoft Teams Rooms


 


Microsoft Teams will automatically join the meeting in content-only mode from your PC, allowing the room to provide audio and video into the meeting without echo and feedback generated by the other clients in the room.


Learn more about how Microsoft has deployed Microsoft Teams Rooms internally, in more than 2,400 Meeting Rooms around the globe to make meetings better.

Additionally in our phones business, we recently added our first native Teams Phones from Yealink, the T56A, T58A, and CP 960.  These desk and conference room phones all have a touch screen and existing customers can now instantly upgrade to Teams as they migrate their platform.    



Look for more exciting announcements from our partners at Integrated Systems Europe in February, and please visit office.com/teamsdevices to learn more about our portfolio of Teams certified devices.

Today, we kick-off the HIMSS 2019 conference and we are excited to share the new capabilities in Microsoft Teams that empower healthcare professionals to provide their patients the best care possible. At HIMSS, we’ll demonstrate how Microsoft Teams can help your healthcare organization improve clinical and operational outcomes and better coordinate patient care – all on the secure and compliant Microsoft 365 cloud.


 


Please stop by our booth (No. 2500) for hands-on demos and to get all your questions answered by our experts. Not going to be at HIMSS? Be sure to follow @MicrosoftTeams to hear about the latest news and updates from the conference.


 


Read the full announcement blog here, and read below for a detailed look at the new Teams capabilities.


 


1. Send urgent messages with priority notifications


Priority notifications alert a recipient to an urgent message on their mobile and desktop devices until a response is received, every two minutes for up to 20 minutes.


 


Availability: Priority notifications is available in private preview. Interested in joining? E-mail teamsforhealthcare@service.microsoft.com.

2. Assign a delegate for when you are unavailable


 


Message delegation enables a user  to delegate messages to another recipient when they are not available, for example while in surgery.


 


Availability: Message delegation is coming soon.

3. Integrate FHIR-enabled electronic health records (EHR) with Teams


With this care coordination functionality, hospital and clinical staff on-the-go can securely access patient records, chat with other team members, and even start a video meeting, all without having to switch between apps. Learn more here about the care coordination solution in Teams.


 


Availability: Private preview. Find out more from our partners here.

4. Securely share images with smart camera


Smart camera can interpret different image types such as a document, whiteboard, or index card, and can utilize auto crop for easy consumption. The smart camera experience has been built with Microsoft’s Office Lens functionality and allows for image annotation. Images taken from the smart camera in Teams are not auto-stored to the user’s mobile device, allowing clinicians to share images in a secure and compliant way.


 


Availability: Available on Teams mobile apps iOS and Android

5. Plan and create schedules with shifts


With shifts, the schedule management tool in Teams, clinician and staff managers can easily plan and create shift schedules, and health team members can review schedules, swap shifts, or offer shifts from their mobile devices, all in real time.


 


Availability: Shifts is available on both Teams desktop and mobile. Check out support documentation here


 


 


 


S.pngCreate and distribute schedules to your health team. Easily review your schedule, and day and shift notes, directly from your mobile device


 


6. Deploy consistent teams customized for healthcare with team templates


Team templates let administrators quickly pre-define a team’s channel, install apps, pin tabs, and more so users can focus on collaboration rather than spend time setting up a team and allowing for consistent teams across the organization. The ward template is meant for communication and collaboration within a ward, pod, or department. The template can be used to facilitate patient management, as well as the operational needs of a ward. The hospital template is meant for communication and collaboration between multiple wards, pods, and departments within a hospital.


 


Availability: Available on Teams. Check out support documentation here


 


7. Rich mobile message federation


Native federation will allow users to have the same level of experience when chatting with other users within the same or different tenants/organizations; this includes the ability to have 1:1 and group chats as well as send rich content such as files and emojis.


 


Availability: Coming soon.
