In today’s workplace environment, take a break and reflect back on how much it has changed over the past 5 to 10 years, followed by the past 10 to 20 years. How much, how big and drastic the changes in the workplace environment over all these years? Now, look at your current workplace, technology and innovations, the disruptions and changes to our work environment. What does the future workplace looks like?
In a recent media event organised by Dell, titled Dell Future Workplace, I had a glimpse into the upcoming changes to how our future workplace might look like (in some cases, they are already into our working environment). During the introduction by key Dell management staff, this quote resonates with me
“The next industrial revolution is upon us”
During an earlier technology article that I wrote on my personal/technology website, I gave an insight into the Future Workplace with Dell. During the visit to Dell Future Workplace, there was a segment that Dell presented, titled “Specialised Workers Zone – Creative Professional”. When I saw the two Dell products showcased there, I wanted to share it separately here on my photography and travel website, for my fellow photographers and creative industry friends (those into video production, film, music, design etc). These two Dell solutions might just be the add-ons to your current workflow that you might need (or wanting to have it).
The two devices that I wanted to share are the Dell Canvas and Precision 5720 AIO. First and foremost, let me share some key information on these two Dell Future Workplace devices –
Dell Canvas – Work at the speed of thought
What began as the Dell smart desk concept in 2014 evolved into Dell Canvas—a new category of smart workspace technology that expands creative productivity for content developers and designers. The 27-inch QHD smart workspace can be used at an angle or flat on a desk so professionals can create, communicate and express their thoughts and ideas as naturally as they do with pen on paper. For example, through the use of touch, digital pen and totems, the Dell Canvas turns drawings into part of the digital workflow and enhances collaboration. Developed in partnership with Microsoft Corp. and powered by virtually any Windows 10 device, Dell Canvas plugs seamlessly into software solutions from partners including Adobe, Autodesk, AVID, Dassault Systems, SolidWorks and Microsoft to unleash the creative genius in everyone
Precision 5720 AIO – The best sound quality of any all-in-one PC
Some All-in-One (AIO) PCs on the market today treat the audio experience as an afterthought. Co-created with Jack Joseph Puig, Grammy™ award winning producer and director of creative innovation at Waves Audio, the new Precision 5720 AIO, cranks sound to a whole new level with built-in audio quality that previously required an external sound bar. With full frequency range high-fidelity audio built in, it delivers the best sound available in an AIO with 10 speakers pumping out sound at 50W per channel.
The viewing experience is equally impressive with a beautiful 4K Ultra HD (3840 x 2160) edge-to-edge touch display supporting 100 percent Adobe RGB colour gamut. The Precision 5720 AIO delivers more performance options with Intel® Xeon® processors, AMD Radeon™ Pro graphics capable of powering VR and outstanding reliability with ISV certifications for top programs like AVID and SolidWorks, as well as leading security and manageability software.
Pricing and availability
All products are available through Dell and its authorized partners.

Thoughts and views on the Dell Canvas and Precision 5720 AIO
From my (photographer) perspective, the Dell Canvas is an ideal solution for photography editing needs and other areas of creative work too. It would make editing easier on a dedicated gadget such as the Dell Canvas. Moreover, this would also allow you to expand the scope of work that you are doing.
The Precision 5720 AIO would be an ideal companion to the Dell Canvas, the all-in-one PC. With the technical sound specifications built in, I reckon musicians would love it too!
At this moment in time, I can’t say that the Dell Canvas is must have for my photography business. However, this device is something that will be beneficial and useful for my photography business consideration in the future.
If you are in the creative industry, the Dell Canvas is a great consideration for your creative workflow. Do visit Dell website and check them out for more information and details.
Running a photography business or creative business, the Dell Canvas and Precision 5720 AIO are two gadgets that can be useful and essential in your business setup and creative workflow. That’s also the administrative or on the go office setup that is also required in running any business. Dell Future Workplace has the solutions for them and I also wrote about them in my earlier article.
Dell Future Workplace has the innovative solutions for different industry professionals. Innovation and technology can help a business to grow and expand.
If you are a small business owner or a medium to big company size workforce, Dell workplace solutions are there for you to look into. Mix and match your needs with the various types of Dell Future Workplace solutions.
What does your Future Workplace looks like for your business/industry?
Personally, my ideal Dell Future Workplace setup in the context of the “On The Go Professionals” + “Creative Professionals”, they would be Dell XPS 13 2-in-1, OptiPlex and a Dell Ultra Sharp Monitor. The Dell Canvas would fit in nicely and ideally, at a later stage in time.
Great post! I think it’s interesting to see something new like this on desktop market, giving users more options. And Dell Canvas also has that Surface-Dial thingy called ‘Totem’. So it will be a good purchase for creative users like designers or artists. Hopefully this thing doesn’t cost as expensive as Surface Studio.
