Huawei launches latest productivity tool to NZ enterprise market

Huawei has launched its IdeaHub Pro in New Zealand, with the aim to enhance collaboration and productivity in offices.

The interactive digital whiteboard, meeting platform and computing device is designed to help New Zealand businesses redefine their workflows for the next normal, the company wrote in a statement.

The device is available in 65-inch and 86-inch sizes, with 4K resolution that can support 60fps wired and wireless projection from up to 20 devices.

IdeaHub Pro integrates a 35ms ultra-low writing latency for a highly responsive writing experience. It also features an intelligent writing recognition technology that can automatically identify words, figures, and flowcharts to enhance readability.

In addition, the IdeaHub Pro is equipped with a 4K camera that features an AutoFrame function that can automatically adjust the camera to deliver an optimal image based on the number and positions of attendees.

IdeaHub also uses face and voice detection algorithms to provide the best picture of the speaker. At the same time, its intelligent microphone system delivers a clear audio transmission within eight meters while reducing the acoustic impact of ambient noise, Huawei states.

IdeaHub Pro supports Windows platform extensions and an open SDK for 3rd party applications. The device comes with two installation modes either wall or a mobile bracket for simple deployment in office, education, healthcare or home environments.

It will be available from selected retailers, including PB Tech, Cyclone and Elive starting at RRP NZ$12,999.00 (excluding GST) for the 65 inch model and RRP NZ$17,999.00 (excluding GST) for the 85 inch model.

Huawei Technologies New Zealand managing director Yanek Fan says, “New Zealand’s COVID-19 elimination strategy has allowed Kiwis to mobilise their workforce much faster than many other countries.

"However, the pandemic has also forced organisations to re-evaluate traditional workflows and redefine the role of the office.

“This means that New Zealand is in a unique position to set an example of what the ‘next normal’ could look like for businesses.”

Fan says, “Studies have shown that while New Zealanders are attracted to the idea of a flexible working environment, collaboration has remained a challenge.

"We believe that IdeaHub will help define the next generation of smart office equipment that will enhance our ability to work together from any location and drive our productivity.”

Huawei is a global provider of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure and smart devices. The company’s mission is to bring digital technologies and solutions into consumer and business markets for a connected world.
