3M Comply (Filp and Magnetic) on Privacy screens make it easy to switch

Akash jain Estimated Read Time: 2 Minutes

Applying privacy filters to your screen is quick and easy, but if you want to share your screen with others, a little work is required. There have been several solutions, such as magnetic filters that only work on ferrite frames, or hanging filters that leave a gap between the screen and the filter. Now 3M has developed a folding system that seems to be the easiest solution to quickly and temporarily remove your privacy screen.


What is 3M Comply Flip.

Comply Flip is a hinge system that allows you to flip your privacy filter. You can simply flip the filter to the back of the screen when you want to temoprairly remove the privacy screen. Getting back to privacy mode is a matter of flipping it back to the screen again. Comply Flip works for Laptops.

What is 3M Comply Magnetic

Comply Magnetic is a Magnetic system that allows you to quickly attach and remove your privacy filter.  There are ferrite strips that you attach your monitor and magnetic clips that you attach to your privacy screen.  You can quickly and effortlessly remove your privacy filter and put it back on with this magnetic solution. 


What is the advantage of Comply Flip.

With Comply Flip, you can quickly switch from privacy mode to public mode. Previous filters had to be removed/stored and would accumulate fingerprints when removed. With Comply Flip, there are tabs on the side that you can use to hold and flip without touching the visible part of the filter.  So there are no fingerprints on filters, no storage required, and no double sided tapes to be removed.

What is the advantage of Comply Flip.

With Comply magnetic, you can quickly remove your privacy filter and put it back on. You would still need to store /keep the filter somewhere unlike flip where the filter remains attached to the screen though.

Which filters come with Comply Flip and comply Magnetic

Looks like All new laptop models come with Comply Flip and monitor filters will come with comply magnetic. However, distribution channels will have some inventory of models without comply. It is likely that all models will be equipped with Comply  by the end of the year if 3M decides to start shipping all the privacies with Comply.

What are workstations and how they compare against Desktops

Akash jain Estimated Read Time: 2 Minutes

Computer systems are the workhorses of your business and it is important that you choose a system that will help you stay productive.

So how do you decide whether to choose a desktop or a workstation. Each system has a specific purpose, and ultimately it is your use case that will determine which system you should choose.

What is a workstation?

First, let us take a look at what exactly a workstation is. The easiest way to define a workstation is to think of it as a desktop (or laptop) with extreme power to accommodate demanding workflows and applications. Applications such as video editing, engineering, CAD and 3D design, graphics editing, and artificial intelligence are a few examples of applications so demanding that only a workstation cuts it

A workstation is not just an upgraded desktop with more memory or better processor, but the entire hardware is selected to give you maximum performance. Let us take a look at the hardware differentiation in workstations.

How a workstation is different from a desktop

What makes a workstation a workstation - the hardware, of course. The hardware of a workstation is different from that of a desktop PC in a number of ways

  • Ability to use GPUs: Workstations give you the option to purchase and upgrade to higher-end GPUs. Graphics-intensive applications, rendering, and AI learning are some of the applications that benefit greatly from GPUs.
  • Faster ECC memory: most workstations use the higher performance (DDR5 3000MHZ) RAM with error correction. So it is not just a higher number of RAM, but a higher number of high performance RAM.
  • High-speed storage with protection: you can use SSDs in desktops as well, but workstations offer additional slots for NVMe SSDs that you can use as them as boot drives for faster performance. They may have RAID controllers so you can combine multiple drives with failover protection.
  • Power and cooling: They have larger power supplies to accommodate more components and often have better cooling.
  • Expandability and Slots - Both internal and external expansion slots are offered for future expandability.
  • ISV Certification : Workstation manufacturers receive certifications from independent software vendors - the vendors that develop the software most commonly used on workstations. This certification guarantees that your favorite application will run smoothly and with optimal performance on the certified Worksation.

All of this make a workstation PC different from a regular consumer Desktop PC.

Applications Where the workstation fits

When you need high computing power and a hardware platform that is scalable and expandable, you need a workstation.

1. ML, AI and data scientists.
ML uses GPUs and requires large memory to store raw data sets. Workstations are ideal for such applications

2. media users - 3D designers, video editors, animators.
Rendering 3D video, viewing high-resolution graphics, and editing video in 8K require powerful GPUs and high-performance memory on workstations.

3. CAD designers, engineers, and graphic artists.
Workstations with GPUs and powerful CPUs provide an optimal user experience for designers and engineers.

4. other verticals - healthcare, finance, energy
Anyone who needs an agile machine that can process large amounts of data quickly can turn to workstations. Users in Verticals like Gas, Energy, Finance and Healthcare use workstations to run their resource hungry applications.

Workstation form factors - Tiny, SFF, Tower and Laptop.

If you are short on space, a Tiny or SFF (Small Form Factor) workstation may be for you. They are smaller and have a smaller number of ports.

A full-size tower offers maximum expansion capabilities and a variety of ports.

Finally, there are mobile workstations in laptop format.

Finding the right size of privacy filter

Your screen size is indicated by a single diagonal size without indicating the aspect ratio. This makes choosing the appropriate sized filter for your screen a bit more work than just specifying the diagonal size
