Microsoft Surface Hub 2S Event Recap

by Volker Weber

Microsoft continues to build fantastic hardware that augments their software in a beautiful way.

Microsoft has had several attempts with collaboration technologies, which failed, but more recently they are getting quite a few things very right. Teams and the Surface Hubs are really well designed and work well. If only the Surface Hubs were a bit more affordable and available...

I was in a conference room with a Surface Hub recently. It took me several minutes to realize it was a hub and not a big monitor and that I was supposed to touch it to log onto teams & join the meeting. Once I worked through that, it was super easy to connect & audio & video worked perfectly. They are beautiful devices but unfortunately too pricey for most businesses, I fear. Hopefully they’ll get more reasonably priced as time goes on.

The new Hub may turn itself on, when it senses a person in the room. Or so the sensors suggest.

The old Surface Hub already has a motion sensor to detect people entering a room. Some companies disabled this functionality. See section „Turn on screen with motion sensors“
