HP today revealed Sprout Pro by HP, a new all-in-one targeted towards schools and professionals. HP believes Sprout Pro consolidates the PC, document camera, 2D and 3D scanners and more into a cost effective, all-in-one solution that reinvents the way teachers and students learn, create, collaborate and share.
Sprout Pro is similar to the original all-in-one Sprout PC with several software and hardware enhancements.
Sprout converts your desk’s surface into a digital-physical workspace and adds new functionality such as:
- The Sprout Companion for Skype for Business enables a new level of remote sharing and collaboration including the ability to share a Sprout 2D capture during a Skype meeting, as well as easily annotate on the Skype whiteboard using the Sprout pen and mat.
- HP External Display Mixer allows users to share what’s on the Sprout dual screen, video from the webcam, or the downward facing camera — or all at the same time.
- HP Scan provides added professional-level document scanning and optical character recognition with features like custom resolution, exposures, color or grayscale and scan destinations for pro-level results.
- HP Magnifier replaces a document camera and allows users to share live physical objects or documents with an audience, including zooming and capture.
- Microsoft Windows 10 Professional provides a safer, innovative and updated experience while helping you to manage your devices, apps, and identities.
- The new generation Intel® Core™ i7 processors with DDR4 memory for additional processing power and integrated graphics performance.
- Trusted Platform Module for enhanced security.
In addition several new 3D-oriented applications from Autodesk-Tinkercad, Sculpt+ and Print Studio are now built for Sprout.
