Microsoft has this week unveiled its next-generation of conference room displays taking the form of the Microsoft Surface Hub 2. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about the vision Microsoft has for the office and conference room of the future. As the name suggests the latest version of the Surface Hub builds upon the design of the display first launched back in 2016 offering 1080p 55-inch and 4K 84-inch option. The Surface Hub 2 now offers a 50.5-inch display with a greater than 4K Ultra HD resolution, 3:2 aspect ratio and extremely thin bezels and can be combined or tiled with others to create a larger display area.
As you can see in the embedded video the orientation of the Surface Hub 2 can be changed instantly to accommodate the application and layout required. Unfortunately Microsoft has not revealed many specifications for the Surface Hub 2 or any worldwide availability or pricing at the current time. Microsoft explains a little more about the inspiration behind the new Surface Hub 2.
“Surface Hub 2 was designed from the ground up to be used by teams – to get people out of their seats, to connect and ideate, regardless of location. The new Surface Hub 2 is sleeker, more agile and more affordable to fit any workspace or work style. The gorgeous 4K+ 50.5” multi-touch display creates an inviting canvas to co-create, harnessing the power of Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Whiteboard, Office 365, Windows 10 and the intelligent cloud. The 4K cameras that rotate with the device, integrated speakers and far field mic arrays allow everyone in the meeting to feel as if they are right in the room with the rest of the group, while our standard Surface 3×2 aspect ratio means everyone has more usable space to create and collaborate.”
