Sharp Middle East and Africa has launched the world’s first Microsoft-certified Windows collaboration display in South Africa.

The Windows collaboration display from Sharp (PN-CD701) is the next-generation 4K interactive display designed to support and improve teamwork.

The 70-inch Class (69.5-inch 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 features of the Windows collaboration display from Sharp brings the power of the intelligent cloud into the workplace, using a combination of IoT and productivity tools.

Organizations 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 has always been at the forefront in introducing one-of-a-kind technologies. The LCD interactive screen was first introduced by Sharp a decade ago. With our expertise in this product category, we are very pleased to bring a new revolution with the “Windows collaboration display” said Stanley Samuel, Dy. General Manager, Sharp Middle East and Africa.


The Windows collaboration display from Sharp has also been designed to work seamlessly with Microsoft tools and applications such as Office 365, Skype for Business, and Microsoft Teams – all of which increase productivity and allow for collaboration in an organization.

The interactive display also offers the ultimate user experience thanks to Sharp’s Pen-on-Paper solution and capacitive touch technology.

“Organizations and teams today want to experience ‘Smarter Meetings’ with more productive collaborations, better space utilizations, and minimal setup. We now offer this possibility through the Windows collaboration display from Sharp,” stated Bharat Gupta, Dy. General Manager, Sharp Middle East and Africa.

Equipped with USB-C connectivity, the Windows collaboration display further offers a simple, single connection from your connected device which covers all the video, touch, and network data needs, and even charges the device.

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, while 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.
