Global PC and printer major HP Inc on Tuesday unveiled several new offerings that included a Next-Gen security service, a commercial virtual reality (VR) headset and a new range of consumer and commercial PCs.

During its flagship “HP Reinvent: World Partner Forum” event here, the company also outlined its digital transformation agenda, insights-driven go-to-market (GTM) strategy and partner-enablement enhancements.

“As customers’ expectations for amazing technology is higher than ever, collaborating with our partners to meet the evolving needs of the next generation has never been more critical,” said Alex Cho, President, Personal Systems, HP Inc.

As the security landscape continues to evolve, the company unveiled “HP DaaS Proactive Security Service” which is designed to go beyond anti-virus solutions and provide a critical extra layer of defence.

As the world’s most advanced isolation security service for files and browsing on Windows 10 PCs, the new HP security service provides real-time malware protection for computing endpoints and threat analytics through HP “TechPulse”.

The “HP DaaS Proactive Security Service” will be available in more than 50 countries in April globally.

HP also showcased its “Reverb” VR headset (professional edition) with twice the resolution, two-thirds the weight and half the US cost of the HP Mixed Reality VR Headset.

“Reverb” aims to deliver a truly immersive experience with amazing clarity with 2160 x 2160 panel per eye and 114-degree field of view.

The “Reverb” VR headset-Pro edition is expected to be available late April onwards.

Designed for the modern SMB workforce, HP expanded its AMD commercial portfolio with the addition of the HP ProBook 445R G6, HP ProBook 455R G6, and the HP ProDesk 405 G4 Desktop Mini.

Powered by 2nd Generation AMD Ryzen mobile processors, the HP ProBook 445R G6 and HP ProBook 455R G6 notebooks feature an ultra-slim aluminum chassis with crisp lines and clean edges.

The 180-degree hinge allows users to lay the devices flat, making it easier to share content and collaborate, while HP “Noise Cancellation” technology reduces background noise by up to 20dB, informed the company.

The HP ProBook 445R G6 and HP ProBook 455R G6 are expected to be available in June.

As more and more Indians get accustomed to digital assistants on their smartphones, the trend will pick up in the PC segment too in 2020, a top HP India executive said on Tuesday.

More and more people, especially millennials, are getting intuitive on smartphones and touch and voice assistants have become a natural input mechanism for the consumers.

“They have started using voice mechanism like Alexa and Google not just to draw and interact, but also to browse, and hence this will be one of the key trends of 2020 in the PC segment,” Vickram Bedi, Senior Director, Personal Systems, HP India, told IANS.

The new generation is using the computing device a lot more than the previous generation as they are using it to unleash their true potential — their creative side, he said.

“In the recent past, there has been a surge in using devices for creating vlogs, apps, YouTube channel, among others, which will continue to grow,” Bedi added.

HP India garnered 26.4 per cent market share in the traditional PC market in the country, including desktops, notebooks and workstations. Its shipments grew 9.9 per cent from the previous quarter.

According to Bedi, the premium segment is expected to grow in the coming year owing to its high performance, design and mobility.

“There will be a lot more convergence of commercial and consumer devices as consumers are more and more wanting to blend work and play for a ‘One Life’ experience,” he elaborated.
