Microsoft has just introduced the Surface Hub 2, a follow up to the original 2016 Surface Hub. It’s a 50.5-inch giant digital whiteboard that’s made specially for conference rooms. The device features a gorgeous 4K+ multi-touch display and 4K cameras that rotate with the device, integrated speakers and far field mic arrays that allow everyone in the meeting to feel as if they are right in the room with the rest of the group. It supports a standard Surface 3×2 aspect ratio which means everyone has more usable space to create and collaborate.
The Surface Hub 2 scales and adapts to the workspace through tiling up to 4 screens together in portrait or landscape view. Its Dynamic rotation function allows you to use the best orientation for your content to help people work in the way that best suits them and the people they are collaborating with. It is also significantly sleeker, more agile and more affordable to fit any workspace or work style than its predecessor. The device works well with Microsoft collaboration tools, such as Windows , Office, Microsoft Whiteboard and Microsoft Teams – all backed by the intelligent cloud.
The Surface Hub 2 will be available for purchase in 2019.
