“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,” Microsoft’s Nick Parker said in an official blog post. “This incredible technology will allow facility managers to utilize environmental data to make real-time decisions.”

Sharp and Avocor are confirmed to be making Windows Collaboration Displays for release later in 2018. No details specifications on models have been revealed yet however the Windows Collaboration Displays made by Sharp (see above image) is confirmed to be 70″ in size.
