Microsoft Goes Back to the Drawing Board with the Surface Hub 2
15 May 2018, 07:17 | Justin Tyler
I could try to describe Microsoft's upcoming Surface Hub 2 - a scalable, 4K, 50.5-inch touchscreen display, videowall collaboration conferencing system that you can roll around, but I bet you already yawned halfway through that sentence.
Under the covers, Surface Hub 2 will run Microsoft 365, which means Windows 10, Office 365 and Enterprise Mobility + Security.
The Surface Hub was a insane expensive digital whiteboard that could handle anything from video conferences to document collaboration. Although none of them look as slick and snazzy as Microsoft's new Surface Hub 2.
The software on the Surface Hub 2 is, of course, based on Windows 10. Using "Dynamic rotation" the Surface Hub 2 is also able to rotate to either a portrait or landscape orientation depending on the needs of a particular task.
The Surface Hub 2 will include 4K cameras that rotate with the device and integrated speakers and far-field mic arrays. Seeing four of the handsome Surface Hub 2s lined up together has undeniable visual effect and will have a profound impact on what groups can accomplish together, allowing users to display multiple pieces of content side-by-side. "The new Surface Hub 2 is sleeker, more agile and more affordable to fit any workspace or work style", explained Panas Panay, chief product officer in a blog. Multiple (up to four) Surface Hubs can also be tiled together in portrait mode for "undeniable visual effect" and enabling teams to get work done across Microsoft Whiteboard, PowerBI, PowerPoint, and a full view video call.
We haven't got any concrete specs beyond the Microsoft Surface Hub 2's display size, but we'll update this page as soon as we know more.
Microsoft hasn't revealed any details regarding the pricing or even the exact launch date. We've sold to more than 5000 customers across 25 markets. As for the hub itself, Microsoft says it'll begin testing with select commercial customers this year ahead of general availability in 2019.
