Microsoft reveals Surface Hub 2, its all-new interactive whiteboard

It rocks a 50.5in display, which is around five inches smaller than its predecessor but comes in a 4K resolution rather than 1080p, and has a 3:2 aspect ratio, slim bezels and can be flipped horizontally as well as sit vertically.

The product provides access to Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Whiteboard, Office 365, Windows 10 and the intelligent cloud. Despite the rumours and speculations, Microsoft remains totally committed to the Surface Hub product line.

Microsoft says it's teaming up with Steelcase to offer a number of options in terms of rolling stands and mounts for those who buy the giant whiteboard. More will be coming soon, and you can check out more on Surface Hub 2 by checking here.

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

While the device does only come in one size, multiple Hubs can be paired together to create a larger canvas for collaboration; Microsoft calls this "tiling" The company believes that this approach will serve its customers better, rather than having two fixed iterations. This will also allow users to share and work on different apps side-by-side.

MICROSOFT RECKONS IT'S GOT future office tech nailed down with the Surface Hub 2, a digital flip chart meets easel that looks like just the device for so-called "creatives" to show off their work.
