What’s New from Avocor, Brother, Meta Quest Pro, EE, Circular Computing & Cauli

The modular seven

Interactive display and video conferencing company Avocor is launching a range of modular room solutions in partnership with Logitech. CollabTouch collaboration solutions marry Avocor E and G series displays with Logitech video collaboration room kits and work seamlessly with the customer’s preferred UC software application. Unlike most all-in-one display solutions, the seven CollabTouch configurations can be tailored to meet the specifications of any room and give users the freedom to repurpose gear and swap components to make the most of any space without replacing the entire room kit.



More natural VR

Announced at Meta Connect 2022, the Meta Quest Pro is the first in a new class of VR headsets featuring an all-new design with guided Fit Adjustment for comfort. Other enhancements include high-resolution sensors that enable digital content and the real world to be shown together in full-colour mixed reality and eye tracking and Natural Facial Expressions for more reactive avatars. All of this, claims Meta, makes Meta Quest Pro the perfect device for collaborating and working more naturally in VR. The $1,499.99 price tag includes a headset, two self- tracking controllers, stylus tips, partial light blockers and a charging dock.


EE connected laptops

EE has announced a new range of Connected Laptops that enable sole traders and micro-businesses to run their businesses from anywhere. The range brings together tools and capabilities from EE and BT and a choice of devices from Samsung, Lenovo and Acer paid for monthly over two and three-year plans. Connected Laptops come with a built-in 4G/5G SIM and mobile data plan; a choice of one ‘smart benefit’ from a list that includes Microsoft Office 365, entertainment options like Apple Music and BT Sport, and EE’s Roam Abroad pass; a free campaign on BT’s Digital Marketing Hub advertising platform; a free Square digital payment reader for contactless payments; and the reassurance of a Stay Connected Guarantee, Next Day Device Replacement and an Annual Device MOT.

Remanufacturing as a service

Circular Computing has launched an industry-first Remanufacturing-as-a- Service (RaaS) to help organisations give a second life to their laptops, including enterprises with a large installed base, leasing companies with their own owned products, system integrators/ resellers and OEMs. The carbon neutral remanufacturer will take in laptop estates from these organisations and give them a second life via its BSI Kitemark- certified remanufacturing process at a fixed cost of £150 per laptop. Circular Computing says the as-a-service model will enable companies to lower their IT procurement costs by up to 70%, cut their Scope 3 emissions and mitigate supply chain issues, as Circular Computing remanufactures existing products to ‘equal or better than new’.


Turn handwriting into text

Laserfiche, the SaaS provider of content management and business process automation, has added intelligent data handwriting recognition to Laserfiche Cloud, enabling organisations to extract handwritten text from forms and document for processing as digital data in business process automation. This follows the addition of new intelligent capture capabilities earlier this year including full-text searchability of audio and video files stored in Laserfiche, including voicemails and recordings of video meetings.



Reusable cups

Cauli, the reusable food packaging scheme, is building on the success of its reusable CauliBox lunchboxes with the launch of reusable and recyclable CauliCups. Made sustainably in the Czech Republic, the 100% polypropylene cups can be reused 400 times before being recycled into new products. They are currently available in 10oz and 12oz sizes, with a 16oz cup in the pipeline. Each year, 2.5 billion disposable coffee cups end up in landfill.

Better connected

Brother UK has upgraded its P-touch desktop label printer range with enhanced connectivity and new models for intermediate (the PT-D460BT) and advanced (PT-D610BT) applications, as businesses turn to professional labellers for help in organising hybrid work-spaces. Brother Product and Solutions Manager Aaron Hopkinson said: “We’re seeing significant growth in demand for professional labellers as more people are using the office within hybrid working models. Speaking to customers, it’s clear that workplace organisation is a challenge, especially following the explosion in flexible working arrangements. The upgraded range ensures we offer a solution to every labelling challenge, whether it’s identifying equipment like headphones and laptops or identifying storage containers in a warehouse or tidying up cables in a home office.” With QWERTY keyboards and LED screens, all devices can be used as standalone labellers as well as connected ones.
