HP's conferencing monitors might be the next big thing to help make WFH bearable

Image Description

HP has launched its first "conferencing monitors" that are equipped with everything needed for remote online collaboration, including a webcam, a microphone, and a speaker bar. 

The HP E24d G4 and E27d G4 are not exactly new, having first been introduced at CES 2020 as ‘advanced docking monitors’ - but now that they are equipped with audio capabilities, the two have been rebranded as ‘conferencing monitors.’ 

HP’s E24d G4 and E27d G4 advanced docking monitors were originally designed primarily for offices and came with a GbE port, a pop-up webcam with a built-in microphone and IR sensors, a USB-C port that supports 100 W power delivery, a five-port USB 3.0 hub (four USB-A, one USB-C), and a DisplayPort input and output to daisy chain another LCD. 

Since advanced docking monitors were meant primarily for offices, they were not equipped with a speaker bar by default. 

By contrast, HP’s E24d G4 and E27d G4 conferencing monitors feature everything ADMs do and come with HP’s S101 speaker bar out-of-box. Just like ADMs, CMs can be connected to a PC using a single USB-C cable.

All you need for WFH

The general specifications of HP’s conferencing monitors look rather decent for typical working horse-class LCDs. HP’s E24D G4 and E27D G4 conferencing monitors are based on a 23.8-inch Full-HD (1920×1080) and a 27-inch Quad-HD (2560×1440) IPS panels, respectively. The displays feature 300 nits brightness, a 1000:1 contrast ratio, a 5 ms GtG response time, and a 60 Hz or 75 Hz refresh rate.  

HP points out that its E24d G4 and E27d G4 conferencing monitors (just like advanced docking monitors) were designed specifically to fit into different environments and take up as little space as possible. In addition, both displays feature very thin bezels to make usage of multi-display configurations more comfortable. 

HP plans to start selling its E24d G4 CM and E27d G4 Conferencing Monitors sometimes in October. 

In the UK, the E24d G4 CM will be priced at £275, whereas the E27d G4 CM will cost £370.

  • Linkedin signs million-pound deal with UK government for specialist job recruitment

    The UK Cabinet Office has signed a two-year deal with LinkedIn as it looks for new candidates for various “specialist” roles, including numerous digital professionals and senior roles.

    As reported by Public Technology, only the details of the first year are known, as the deal will be re-evaluated after the first 12 months. Starting in December 3, 2021, LinkedIn will provide the Cabinet Office with a total of 17 LinkedIn Talent Solutions licenses, and 144 posts to be advertised by the government agencies, via Job Slots. 

    Each license is worth around £7,275, bringing the total cost for the first year up to just above £205,000. In total, the deal will be worth around £1m, with the remainder of the funds being spent in year two. 

    Licenses split between departments

    There will be multiple beneficiaries of the contract, the report claims, including the Government Digital Service (six licenses, 40 job postings), the Government Recruitment Service (five licenses, 70 job postings), the Government Commercial Function (four licenses, 20 job listings), and the Cabinet Office’s People and Places Team and its Director General Workforce unit (each will get one license and three postings). 

    The Cabinet Office will not get any software licenses, but will have eight job slots, which will be spent for positions at the Crown Commercial Service.

    LinkedIn is the go-to social media and recruitment platform for professionals worldwide. It currently has more than 800 million active users, in more than 200 countries and territories around the world. Among its various services is the LinkedIn Talent Solution, a job site that allows users advanced headhunting features, such as advanced search filters and spotlights, smart suggestions for skills and locations, or prioritizing candidates “ready or open to make a move”.

    In the contract, it was said that the Cabinet Office sought “access to a large diverse UK-based candidate pool of 10 million-plus” people, and the “ability to target both the active and passive candidate market when posting jobs and conducting candidate search activities”.
