Microsoft has unveiled the Surface Hub 2S during a special event in New York.
Panos Panay, Chief Product Officer at Microsoft, revealed that the device uses Windows 10, Microsoft Teams, Office 365, Microsoft Whiteboard and the Intelligent Cloud.
It also “packs even more performance into a thinner, lighter, more versatile design”. The Surface Hub 2S is 40% lighter than its predecessor, while its 4K, 50-inch, multi-touch display is 60% thinner. It also offers 50% faster graphics performance than the original Surface Hub.
“Surface Hub 2S gives teams the flexibility to come together wherever they work together best,” Panay wrote in a blog post. “It takes something that has long been a fixture in the conference room – the shared screen – and transforms it into a mobile computer, built for teams. Surface Hub 2S offers the thinnest edge and smallest bezels in its class, bringing you closer to your content and your team and integrating seamlessly into any office environment.
“When paired with the Steelcase Roam Mobile Stand and APC Charge Mobile Battery, Surface Hub 2S creates a mobile collaboration experience that frees teams from the conference room and allows your ideas to be as mobile as you are – no wall-mounting or AC power connectivity required.”
