The Windows collaboration display from Sharp is a next generation 4K 70” intelligent interactive professional display units, these units enables better space utilisation and control of room temperature, humidity and carbon monoxide levels and more productive collaboration in workplace meeting spaces such as boardrooms, training rooms, technical reviews and virtually anywhere else, with the ultimate aim of creating a fully controlled environment where energy levels are monitored and adjusted automatically. The Windows collaboration display from Sharp has in-built sensors that can connect to the Microsoft Azure Digital Twins IoT platform, and other commercially available cloud and subscription services such as Sharp WorkSpaces as part of a smart building environment. Occupancy – a motion sensor detects the presence of people in the room. An additional artificial intelligence (AI) service can analyse this data and count the numbers of people, while in conjunction with a 3rd party AI service provider, displays and other equipment could be automatically switched on to enable a faster setup and help improve the scheduling of room bookings. During a meeting, the IoT sensors can also be utilised by another AI service to detect the location of whomever is speaking controlling the three-dimensional microphone array to focus on the relevant person. Temperature – its intelligent climate measurement sensor can be used by an AI service to automatically regulate the room temperature and relative humidity to make the room feel more comfortable. By intelligently optimising the operation of the air-conditioning it also helps reduce costs. Light – an ambient light sensor helps with intelligent lighting control, as it automatically measures the level of light in the meeting space. An AI service could then adjust the in-room lighting system with changing day and night conditions, which can reduce eye strain and may save money on wasted energy. Air quality – the Windows collaboration display continually measures and analyses the ambient air quality in the meeting room sending data to another AI service, automatically adjusting the air-conditioning to provide the best possible working environment. Actively using the data collected by the Windows collaboration display and making physical changes to how rooms are used and controlled is best achieved with a Facility Manager using the latest industry smart tools and technologies.
