Microsoft to make TV-sized touchscreens more affordable

Microsoft is said to be gearing up to mass production large touchscreen displays via Perceptive Pixel, the touchscreen maker it bought back in 2012. The goal is to make large touchscreens (like 55" models) more affordable to kick off adoption for business and presentation purposes.
Microsoft purchased PPI in July 2012 for an undisclosed amount. PPI's large-screen touch displays originally sold in the $80,000 range. But Microsoft execs said they were exploring ways to make the displays more affordable. (The 55-inch PPI flat-panel display currently sells for about $7,500 via various retailers/resellers.)

At the time Microsoft bought PPI, the team was folded into Microsoft's Office division because of the synergies between the Office team and PPI around improving meetings via technology. Making meetings more effective remains a priority for Microsoft, and specifically the OneNote, combined Skype/Lync and Power BI teams.
