Microsoft's Surface Hub 2 was designed from the ground up for teams

Microsoft's Surface Hub 2 was designed from the ground up for teams”

The gorgeous Surface Hub 2 features a 50.5-inch multi-touch display with 4K resolution.

Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Whiteboard and Office 365 have all been optimised to run on the interactive whiteboard, and the new Surface Hub 2 also comes with 4K cameras that rotate with the device, along with integrated speakers and far-field microphones. Robin Seiler, the general manager of Surface Hub engineering, told Business Insider the price of the new Surface Hub will be comparable in cost with the competing digital whiteboard offerings from Google and Cisco, which could mean a price of about $5,000.

Microsoft launched Surface hub back in June 2015.

This week, Microsoft has begun more openly talking about the new hardware and we finally have our first look at the new device.

For those keeping track, 3:2 is the same aspect ratio as Microsoft's other Surface products, and it works well with this new device considering the fact that it can now rotate to a portrait position as well.

In addition to the trick rotating feature, the Surface Hub 2 supports tiling, which allows you to pair up to 4 screens together in either landscape or portrait mode. While we are having a video call with someone, we do not have to shrink their face, but instead, use the full capacity of the Surface Hub 2.

The updated software is also designed with Microsoft's Fluent Design, so it already looks much better than the original Surface Hub's software. Dynamic rotation allows you to use the best orientation for your content and Microsoft has teamed up with Steelcase to create a system of rolling stands and mounts to help make Surface Hub 2 mobile. Microsoft says it has sold over 5000 of the original Surface Hub across 24 markets and believes the more affordable Surface Hub 2 will be an even bigger success.

Microsoft isn't sharing pricing and exact availability details for the new Surface Hub 2 just yet.

Microsoft says that it will be testing the Surface Hub 2 with select commercial customers this year, and the device would become available for purchase for everyone in 2019.

The most interesting part is the concept video.
