Mass shipping of Surface Hub rival begins10 February 2016
Set to rival Microsoft’s Surface Hub on both technology and price point, the 70in DTEN70 display equipped with DisplayTen Wireless Technology is available for mass shipping, DisplayTen announced today.
Exhibiting the DTEN70 model, the display features a 70in screen made from Samsung Grade A glass, and features completely wireless connections, a simple, software-free setup and connections with virtually any device that has a USB port.
Wei Liu, founder and CEO at DisplayTen, commented: “Microsoft Surface Hub has been announced several times but it is still not available. The DTEN70 is available; it is an open and flexible system, and it offers more features than Microsoft Surface Hub, as well as being significantly more affordable.”
The device is Android-based yet is compatible with Apple, Microsoft and all web- and PC-based software, and can be operated independently, or from a laptop or mobile device. Users can write easily on the screen with their finger, draw around it to select and move that note, as well as generate QR codes to enable the user to take screen content with them on their mobile device.
With two-way control, the display is able to mirror mobile device content as well as that from laptops and PCs using the DisplayTen DTenShare, which plugs into a USB port and enables the simple sharing of content from any device to the screen. This makes wireless sharing possible in seconds in meeting and huddle rooms, as well as classrooms.
Liu added: “Some people limit what you can use with their devices, making you use their software. We have decided to be as open and as flexible as possible, which is a business decision but also a vision.
No one should be limited to a closed ecosystem, which is why we chose Android and which is why we are different from other companies.”
