HP’s latest release would be one that makes a statement of intent – after all, it is not everyday the computer manufacturer churns out a large-scale, touch-enabled wall of digital signage displays. Known as the HP VantagePoint (well said), it will offer customers an immersive experience through the clever use of videos, local and online applications, in addition to live web and broadcast feeds. The entire VantagePoint measures 132″ across diagonally, functioning as an ultra-high resolution interactive wall that is capable of supporting up to 32 touch points simultaneously, and HP hopes to create new ways for businesses to engage customers via specialized applications with the VantagePoint, in addition to improving back-office operations through touch-interactive decision support collaboration.
HP targets a fair number of industries with the VantagePoint, where they include (but are not limited to) executive briefing centers, showrooms, retail, financial services, automotive, airline, consumer packaged goods and the government. The entire setup comprises half a dozen HP LD4730G 47″ Ultra-Micro Bezel displays, and stands 7 feet hight with a width of 11 feet. Infrared-based touch technology will be employd to sense onscreen interaction, while a high-performance HP Z800 Workstation will be able to handle the heavy stuff such as video and image processing. For audio volume and color contrast controls, an HP Pavilion Slimline PC is employed.
