Microsoft Surface Hub 2S features and technical specifications

The new member of the Surface family, Microsoft Surface Hub 2S, offers improved performance in a thinner, lighter and more versatile design than the other models in the series. The device is 40% lighter in weight than the previous version and a 60% thinner display. For these and other reasons, Microsoft Surface Hub 2S is perfect for any environment, from classic meeting rooms to modern and compact huddle rooms.

The product integrates a 50″ 4K multi-touch display and offers a large canvas to collaborate better and use the touch-screen with maximum comfort. The purpose of the Microsoft Surface Hub 2S is to offer the flexibility to get together wherever you are in order to collaborate, develop a project and do your work in the best way. Given the purposes, the product offers, in addition to a slim design, a 4K video cameraexcellent sound quality and far-field technology for the microphone to ensure the best collaboration for all participants.

So how do you move a 50″ device from one room to another easily? Simple, thanks to Roam Mobile Stand (designed by partner Steelcase) and alla APC Charge Mobile Battery, two essential accessories for transport and feeding. In short, it will be easy to move the device from one place to another without interrupting the work or project in progress, this also applies to Skype video calls over WiFi.

“The business world, increasingly interested in recent years by digital transformation processes that revolutionize its assets, needs innovative spaces and solutions to allow teams to collaborate and give their best in the design of winning ideas. As research by Steelcase has shown, 80% of employees consider teamwork essential to doing their best work. However, with the spread of remote working and the proliferation of global teams, it is increasingly difficult to physically be in the same room. Just think that 70% of professionals said they work remotely at least once a week and 53% do it at least half the days of the week. With Surface Hub 2S, we intend to offer companies a cutting-edge technological tool, capable of optimizing teamwork, in any context, both physical and virtual”, commented Elvira Carzaniga, Business Group Lead Surface of Microsoft Italy.

However, it does not end here, because Microsoft’s commitment in the business sector continues apace: in fact, two new devices in the Surface Hub line have already been announced, dedicated to spaces that need displays capable of offering excellent interaction via touch or via pen, as well as an alternative version of the 85″ Surface Hub 2S expected in 2020.
