First up, HP took wraps off its all-new Presence All-in-One Conferencing PC with Zoom Rooms. It comes in two sizes: 23.8-inch and 27-inch.

HP Presence is the technology curated by HP for video conferencing. Just like Apple's Center Stage, it follows the person on the video call when moving and keeps them in the middle of the frame. The Dynamic Voice Leveling technology optimizes voice clarity to maintain consistent volume whereas AI-noise reduction 2 filters unwanted background noises. The PCs are also equipped with Wolf Security for Business that prevents threats and keeps the user data safe.
