This week’s news was interesting not especially for new document-imaging news, but news concerning two OEMs expanding into markets outside of print.
The first was HP Inc., which is expanding into the market for conferencing solutions, with solutions for enhancing, organizing, and securing both in-person onsite, and remote, virtual conference meetings.
The second was Sharp Corporation, which, according to several Japanese news sources, is planning on reentering the television market. Sharp exited this market in 2010 amid low sales, but appears now to be getting back into it. It’s said to be doing so with factory resources from parent company Foxconn, and with a new partnership with the ROKU television streaming service.
