Microsoft Goes Back to the Drawing Board with the Surface Hub 2

Microsoft Goes Back to the Drawing Board with the Surface Hub 2

Microsoft is also teaming with Michigan-based office furniture company Steelcase to make rolling stands and wall mounts for the devices. In fact, companies that promote collaborative working are five times as likely to be high-performing. The company today unveiled the new generation of its interactive whiteboard, available next year.

Surface Hub 2 looks a lot sleeker and more portable than Surface Hub 1 and was built for "immersive collaboration", Seiler said. Microsoft's Surface Hub 2 features Dynamic Rotation, which lets users rotate the device to portrait or landscape for the best view and usability, and the rotating experience is simply handsome. So it'll look and act like one massive Surface tablet.

Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Whiteboard and Office 365 have all been optimised to run on the interactive whiteboard, and the new Surface Hub 2 also comes with 4K cameras that rotate with the device, along with integrated speakers and far-field microphones.

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. 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, said Microsoft's Chief Product Officer Panos Panay.




Right now, Microsoft is being tight-lipped about the version of Windows 10 and hardware specs being used by the Surface Hub 2. The first Surface Hub made it possible to join a meeting or open a whiteboard with one touch and the Surface Hub 2 adds multi-user sign in. Microsoft says it has sold over 5000 of the original Surface Hub across 24 markets and believes the more affordable Surface Hub 2 will be an even bigger success.

And Microsoft loves their hinges and this device is no different, it can now rotate 90 degrees.

Microsoft isn't yet disclosing pricing, but Seiler said it would be "in line with similar competitive devices".
