Microsoft officially announces Surface Hub 2 for Businesses

Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2 with 50.5-inch display

We've teamed up with workplace expert Steelcase to create a system of rolling stands and easy-to-use mounts to help Surface Hub 2 customers be truly mobile, gain a new perspective and capture their ideas wherever they do their best work.

Do you remember the Surface Hub? The new and improved Surface Hub 2 boasts a higher-resolution touchscreen than the original, plus dual removable 4K rotating front cameras that support video calling, enhanced far-field microphones, and other improvements.

On paper, this device looks excellent.

And it's not just regular screen rotation.

Another nifty addition to this year's Surface Hub is the fact that it can be employed in the portrait orientation as well, unlike the previous one which was restricted to a landscape position.

Everytime I see craveable conference-room technology, though, it makes me think of the 20 minutes (or more) it usually takes to debug basic group conference meetings. Companies can line up four Surface Hub 2s together to get an incredibly lovely experience across all the Surface Hub 2s.

Windows 10 on the Surface Hub 2 is also getting a massive update from the looks of things.

Earlier this year a report revealed that Microsoft is working on the next generation Surface Hub and it could be announced as soon as this year. Microsoft also made sure to cut on bezels so Surface Hub 2 has a better screen-to-body ratio.

Microsoft suggests they've brought the original Surface Hub to more than 5000 customers across 25 markets.

As for the software, Microsoft tells me that it is running an iteration of Windows 10 and that UWP apps will run as well but we will need to wait for the full spec-release to better understand how this machine is operating behind the glass.

Microsoft isn't yet disclosing pricing, but Seiler said it would be "in line with similar competitive devices". This apparently brings it in line with Microsoft's Surface laptops and tablets, which the company says were created to give the look and feel of a piece of paper.

Microsoft has re-thought a lot about how displays function in the collaboration space and we are seeing quite a few changes in this new device.
