HP at CES 2022: Unlocking the Power of Hybrid Work Experiences with Intelligent Collaboration and Creation Technology

HP Inc. strengthens portfolio with its largest launch at the annual technology tradeshow

PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 04, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HP Inc. today unveiled new devices and solutions designed to enhance collaboration and creation experiences so people can work and create wherever they are.

Hybrid work requires more than simply collaborating and working together. It challenges technology to provide the same experience no matter where people are. Workplaces are now wherever people want them to be, but the expectations of their work doesn’t change. People need to be seen and heard clearly and be productive and inspired.

“Hybrid changed everything. We now have more freedom to be productive and creative from anywhere,” said Alex Cho, president, Personal Systems, HP Inc. “Our hardware, software, and solutions innovations deliver the experiences needed to thrive in a hybrid world, providing the power to blend our most productive environments for work and creativity with our most inspired ideas.”

Collaborate with meaningful experiences for hybrid work
Continuing to build on the recent launch of HP Presence,1 HP added exciting new features for better video conferencing experiences. People can now enhance their onscreen image to personalize how they show up in meetings with the Appearance Filter, while the myHP application provides a single dashboard to control and customize their PC experience – like applying video settings across their conferencing apps with a single click. HP has also made its advanced collaboration technology available across more of its portfolio, including the EliteBook 800 G9 Series PCs, EliteBook 1000 G9 Series PC, ZBook Firefly G9, and Z40c and Z34c G3 Curved Displays, and newest Elite Dragonfly PCs. From 5MP cameras with HP Auto Frame to AI-based noise reduction filters and dynamic voice leveling technology, HP Presence delivers a better way to be seen, be heard, and share ideas for people outside of the meeting room.

Taking workforce collaboration to a whole new level, HP has expanded its portfolio of Elite Dragonfly devices, delivering on the customer demand for premium mobile devices when it comes to hybrid work. These devices drive progress towards increasing sustainability with recycled magnesium, aluminum, and ocean bound plastics.2

The HP Elite Dragonfly G3 with Windows 11 empowers mobile professionals to bring their best to every meeting. Still lighter than air at under 1kg3 and available in Slate Blue or Natural Silver, the HP Elite Dragonfly G3 is powered by 12th Gen Intel processors. The HP Elite Dragonfly G3 features a 13.5” clamshell design, while giving users more screen with a taller 3:2 aspect screen ratio to keep them productive. Enhanced by HP Presence, the Elite Dragonfly delivers an exceptional collaboration experience with Audio by Bang & Olufsen and four discrete amps working together to create immersive sound, HP Dynamic Voice Leveling automatically optimizing voice clarity, and AI-based noise reduction 2.0 enhances audio so people can be heard even when wearing a mask. Equipped with intelligent charging, the battery learns work patterns to optimize power consumption. HP Wolf Security for Business4 provides a resilient defense against malware and hacking.

Purpose-built for the mobile intensity of cloud-centric workstyles, the HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook Enterprise is the world’s most advanced Chromebook for business.5 Delivering breakthrough collaboration experiences and security, the new premium Chromebook empowers business and cloud users with the simplicity of Chrome OS to collaborate, share and capture ideas. Designed with a tight integration with Chrome OS, the world’s first haptic trackpad on a Chromebook6 gives users a new dimension of control and responsiveness. Wrapped in a stunning 360-degree design and enhanced by HP Presence, the device features a 5MP camera with lowlight improvement for high-quality video chatting and four speakers expertly tuned with Audio by Bang & Olufsen create an immersive user experience. Users can also take notes and share ideas on the fly with an optional magnetic pen7 that attaches and charges wirelessly on the side of the device. As people start to travel again, keeping sensitive data private while on the go has become essential. The HP Sure View Reflect integrated privacy screen protects sensitive information while HP Sure Shutter blocks your webcam with a single click. Enabling comprehensive, multilayered security for business, the HP Elite Dragonfly Chromebook is the world’s first Intel® vPro Chromebook.8

Whether you’re working from home, in the office, or somewhere in between, work together as if you’re in the same room as your colleagues with lifelike video and crisp audio with five new conferencing monitors designed to make your workspace more productive, collaborative, and immersive.
