Over the years, Microsoft has envisioned huge touchscreen displays mounted on walls where individuals work collectively in a shared space. The future is nowhere as the tech mogul has introduced their Surface Hub 2.




Based on the futuristic design, Surface Hub 2 is a giant conference room display that will arrive at the market in 50 and 85-inch touchscreen versions. The functional design will enable the users to collaborate and work using the screen rather than just sitting and seeing the boring presentation slides.

“The unique thing about the Hub, in comparison with the rest of the Surface line, is that it’s not a personal computer,” explains Microsoft’s hardware design Chief Ralf Groene. In an exclusive interview, he added that “it’s really a computer that belongs to space.”

However, the drive to the future is expensive. Businesses will have to pay $8,999, the base price of the model Surface Hub 2S, and with all the added options, the prices will go up to nearly $12,000. Microsoft will massively update the all-new modular processor cartridge that will go along with the screen hardware compared with its previous model of the same product line. “It’s competent, the technology is amazing, but I think what it does to people collaborating is way more exciting than the industrial design,” says Groene. The specifications and hardware updates include an 8th generation Intel Core i5 processor, high-definition front-facing three-way stereo speakers with an all-new 50-inch Pixel Sense display. The new 3:2 ratio display assisting the portrait mode will help view documents and have conference calls vertically.




A dedicated 4K camera for this “interactive whiteboard” is also designed by Microsoft and is detachable. Also, if your office workings depend on Office 365, it can prove to be a reliable companion as it supports the software that can be used for your business. The current model will run on Windows 10 with existing desktop apps designed to run on it. However, the detailed software modifications from the desktop to Hub will be revealed later.
