The company claims the Surface Hub 2S will have “tablet class precision” on its large screens, each of which will feature a resolution beyond 4K. With its sleek stand, you’ll be able to move it between different meeting rooms with ease. It also features a 4K camera for clear video chats, as well as an eight-element microphone array to capture every voice in the room.
During a media demonstration in New York City, Microsoft showed off how the Surface Hub 2S can deal with a four-person video chat, as well as collaborate with nearby Surface laptops using its digital whiteboard. Everything looks more fluid than other collaborative displays I’ve seen, but of course, the real test will be to see how it works in an actual office environment.
While it’s nice to finally have some concrete details on the Surface Hub 2 line, the one we’re really waiting for is the 2X. Luckily for Surface 2S owners, Microsoft says they’ll be able to upgrade to the 2X down the line through a removable processor cartridge.
