Last week, CES 2019 ended and we showcased partnerships and innovations in smart technologies, including modern personal computers, connected computing devices, powerful gaming computers, IoT solutions for retail, as well as new Azure Sphere modules and starter kits to help keep billions of connected devices secure.
We believe the personal computer is the best smart device that takes creativity and productivity to the next level by helping people do more. Personal computer innovation continues to drive innovation in our lives, help us achieve incredible levels of productivity, and open up new opportunities for people in the cloud.
Modern PCs are sleek, fast, safe and durable, have long battery life, and are beautifully designed at all price points. Premium PCs like the HP Specter Folio and LG Gram 17 ″ combine sleek design with amazing battery life, great for any task, and the latest features to showcase the best Windows 10 experience. will appear in Russia later).
There are sleek mid-range 2-in-1 devices with long battery life, like the Lenovo Yoga C630 WOS (Windows on Snapdragon), and there are thin and light ones like the Acer Swift 7 laptop that won’t take up much space in your bag.
We’re also seeing a rise in low-cost laptops that are safe, easy to use with and without the Internet, and great for work or play. You can get a powerful, powerful PC that lives up to Windows’ expectations at a price that’s right for you.
Another innovative, rapidly growing area is PCs that are constantly connected to the Internet. These devices will change the way you think about computers, because they are always safe online and are equipped with batteries for continuous operation without recharging all day, so you can be even more productive.
Previously, LTE communications were considered a “nice addition”, but now more and more users see the benefits of constant communication with people and projects that matter to them – both at home and at work. We firmly believe that fast, affordable and ubiquitous connectivity to LTE and now 5G cellular networks will be essential to helping everyone work on a multitude of different devices.
The power of PC gaming
Windows 10 is the largest PC gaming platform, and we continue to add new features to it for incredibly deep immersion in games that are more and more immersive. Our partners are innovating with these Windows features and releasing new, very powerful gaming PCs with the latest generation of processors and graphics, delivering impressive performance to the gaming community.
Windows 10 has a Game Bar that lets you record, stream, and customize every game. It’s a single control center where you can choose your preferred audio settings, record what’s happening on your screen, and instantly stream your gameplay to Mixer in real time. to work with large images and video files without problems.
Internet of things
The Internet of Things (IoT) is another area where a lot of innovation is emerging, and our partners are offering new smart devices and cloud solutions that customers demand. The IoT is transforming the way businesses work, helping to improve operational efficiency, reduce costs, improve service quality, and digitally transform products and services. Buyers also use connected IoT devices for different purposes. New devices and technologies based on IoT help users stay connected and be more productive in everything, be it fitness, household chores, shopping, finance or any other area of life.
Microsoft is pleased to partner with the broadest range of partners in the IoT ecosystem, including OEMs, solution providers, and aggregators, to help deliver a variety of IoT solutions to businesses and customers across a variety of industries and industries.
We’re seeing these investments drive retailers’ efficiencies, create new ways to interact with shoppers both in-store and online, and change the way we approach personalized shopping.
For example, on these holidays I did not have to stand in a line to buy gifts. e, scan any items, pick them up and immediately leave the store. Payments will be automatically posted to its’ve used apps on my mobile.
like SKIP for quick shopping, which we are showcasing at CES this year. With SKIP, a customer can enter the store buyer’s SKIP account. These simplified mobile checkout solutions help retailers improve their customer experience and allow retail employees to focus on more important things.
It’s not just the interactions with shoppers that are changing. We are also demonstrating the Mobility Object Tracking and Monitoring solution, which uses low-cost RFID IoT sensors, sonar and Bluetooth to monitor indoor and outdoor objects.
We are also demonstrating the Genetic Retail Sense Video Analytics solution. Powered by Microsoft Azure, this analytics solution enables retailers to use their existing surveillance cameras to track key retail metrics such as customer count, wait times, heat maps, directional analysis, and occupancy. Using this data, store operators can make the necessary changes to the scoreboard, optimize shop fittings, adjust staffing tables, and more, increasing the overall efficiency of interaction with customers.
The automotive industry is also adopting innovative smart devices. Because these devices can operate with or without cloud connectivity, a holistic approach to security that encompasses the cloud, hardware, and software needs to be taken.
This will help protect the billions of microcontroller devices produced every year and make the devices we install in our homes more secure.
