Microsoft Unveils Gorgeous New Surface Hub 2

Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2 with 50.5-inch display

Microsoft has announced that it'll begin testing the device this year with select commercial customers, but that it will not be available for purchase until 2019. 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.

Microsoft has announced a "more affordable" Surface Hub 2 will offer a 4K+ 50.5-in multitouch display.

The Surface Hub 2 will include 4K cameras that rotate with the device and integrated speakers and far-field mic arrays.

Almost three years after the launch of the original Surface Hubinteractive whiteboard, Microsoft introduced the second-generation model on Tuesday, May 15. In that video from 2015, Microsoft also showed users pushing and pulling content from a centralized hub to their individual PCs and other handheld devices with a flick-like gesture. Surface Hub 2 takes the baby steps towards a multiple display thing.

According to the company, the design inspiration for Surface Hub 2 was taking whiteboard-enabled collaboration beyond the conference room and enhancing productivity for different kinds of users. Despite the rumours and speculations, Microsoft remains totally committed to the Surface Hub product line. I am not exactly sure what Microsoft considers to be a competitive device.

Microsoft is targeting the Hub 2 at work, rather than play. Microsoft says that there are 5,000 companies using Surface Hubs, including half of Fortune 100 companies.

'Avengers: Infinity War' Becomes the Highest Grossing Superhero Movie of All Time
Infinity War will take a little of that audience, but there's no reason to believe the film won't easily surpass $150 million. China was the last market where " Avengers: Infinity War " opened, and Earth's mightiest heroes made their premiere count.

Interestingly, the Surface Hub 2 has a hinge system which allows it to be rotated between landscape and portrait mode, and can be mounted on a wall or used with a rolling stand to make it more accessible.

Dynamic Collaboration is a new feature that lets two team members actively collaborate on the same project at once using one Surface Hub 2 device.

The updated software is also designed with Microsoft's Fluent Design, so it already looks much better than the original Surface Hub's software. The whole idea of a Surface Hub was to make collaboration and videoconferencing much more efficient.

Microsoft also promises that Surface Hub 2 will support multi-user sign in, so multiple people can authenticate in the same workspace and simultaneously share their documents.

So far, Microsoft is keeping pricing and technical details under wraps.
