Surface Hub 2 Offers Microsoft's Take on Minority Report

15 May, 2018, 22:29 | Author: Grady Montgomery
  • Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2 with 50.5-inch display

Concrete release date information is also nowhere to be found. Surface Hub 2 will be tested with select customers throughout the rest of 2018, and the company expects to formally release the product sometime in 2019.

'Seeing four of the attractive 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 exact specs aren't out yet, but the Surface Hub 2 will have a 50.5-inch display with a 4K or greater resolution. The Microsoft Surface Hub 2 also features a 4K webcam (which is removable and rotatable) and far-field microphones for a better video calling experience. You can put up to four Surface Hub 2 devices side-by-side - in either portrait or landscape orientation - and they'll all work together as one massive screen. The new Surface Hub 2 is sleeker, more agile and more affordable to fit any workspace or work style.

Last year, Microsoft said that the current generation Surface Hub devices were picking up momentum worldwide. She said Microsoft is starting to provide details today, May 15, because Surface Hubs have a long purchase cycle. It's a solid, interesting concept, though as a wired device it can't be as mobile as Millennials are.

In terms of software, the device runs Windows 10, Office 365, Microsoft Whiteboard and Teams, the chat-based collaboration app that is steadily evolving into a full-fledged enterprise communications platform. The original Surface Hub advanced this mission, making it possible to join a meeting or open a whiteboard with one touch. This spells out to something around $5000 - one-fourth of the Surface Hub's price tag.




The Surface Hub 2 won't be battery-powered, though Microsoft's not saying exactly what technology will power it. Microsoft says that there are 5,000 companies using Surface Hubs, including half of Fortune 100 companies.

Though the Hub 2 will run Microsoft's Whiteboard and Skype apps, as the first Surface Hub did, Teams will be the centerpiece of the new Surface Hub 2.

Surface Hub 2 Intro video. Rather, the ability to switch from landscape to portrait via a hinge will prove as a huge attraction, according to Microsoft.

The Surface Hub was a insane expensive digital whiteboard that could handle anything from video conferences to document collaboration.

Yet, if there's one thing that Google's Chromebooks demonstrated easily it's that the educational sector is ripe for targeting by tech companies if they keep prices in check.
