What Is Surface Hub 2?
At first glance, Microsoft Surface Hub 2 is a giant display for the conference room environment, but with a little digging, you can see that it’s so much more than that. The device is designed to enable and encourage collaboration in every sense – it isn’t a personal computer, but a device that belongs to an entire space with users using it together to create something truly special. Available in 50-inch and 85-inch variations, you’re able to tailor your surface hub experience to the room that it will be situated in.

How Will You Use It?
Think of Microsoft Surface Hub 2 as a tablet that’s capable of running your meetings at a higher standard than you’ve ever been able to before – you’ll be able to utilize the front-facing 3-way stereo audio to create immersive sound during presentations, or crisp, clear video call audio during conference calls with people from around the globe. The device can also be combined with a custom-built camera that’s capable of capturing video and images in perfect 4K quality, so you’ll never have to worry about poor-quality video calls and conferences again. This camera is powered by USB-C and can be attached to the top or side of the device using a magnetic function.
In addition to this, there is also a wealth of features built in to the device that make collaborative working easier than ever – the large screen allows for multiple users to be signed in and active at once, meaning you’ll be able to simultaneously access and share files, draw and annotate, and present at once – this is a huge step forward for collaborative work. Further to this, you’ll also find that the screen is fully rotatable, meaning you can use the device at the angle that best suits the task at hand, with the ability to change that with a simple turn of the screen.
For users that are already using the Microsoft package, you’ll find a deeper level of integration and functionality available that allows you to get even more out of the tools and services that you’re currently using – this improves not only practicality, but also efficiency and ROI too.
Why Does This Improve Your Meetings?
The Surface Hub 2 improves your meetings by offering a next-level experience to everyone involved. The device acts as an upgrade on almost all of your conference room tech and rolls it into one super-intelligent device that’s at the center of your meeting space.

Alternatively, employees are sure to find new ways to collaborate and showcase work and projects using the device’s collaborative tools such as simultaneous log-in and whiteboard features.
However you plan to use Surface Hub 2, it’s best to use it in an environment that’s been tailor-made for its presence – this way you know you’re in a position to get the most out of this truly incredible device.
