Microsoft held its annual conference for developers and IT professionals called Microsoft Ignite, which was first publicly demonstrated the second generation interactive whiteboard Surface Hub.
Microsoft Surface Hub 2 is a 50-inch touchscreen display that is designed for presentations and collaboration on various projects. The announcement of interactive whiteboards took place in may of this year, though no details about the device then didn’t.
By the way, during the conference full specifications Surface Hub 2 has not been announced, the company reported that it made changes to the hardware and the Board will be called the Surface Hub 2S. But the participants were able to assess the novelty in the work. First of all it concerns the rotary mechanism of the Board: when you change the orientation from portrait to landscape the image is not inverted, as we used to see it on the smartphone, and adapts to the screen position. This is more clearly shown by the animation below.
On the bottom under the display is a fingerprint scanner that is used for quick authentication of users. Also note that while working with Surface Hub 2S you can display the list of recent files for each user separately, allowing you to work with them together in one workspace.
The release of Microsoft Surface Hub 2S will be held next year. The Board is equipped with 4K cameras and a display with a thin framework on the sides. However, demonstrated at the conference, the software, including adaptive flipping of the screen, will be available only in 2020. Then, together with adatom, Microsoft plans to release a version of Surface Hub 2X.
