The upcoming smart display is geared toward business use and group productivity.
Microsoft has revealed the latest device in its Surface family of products. The Surface Hub is a large-screen touch panel powered by Windows 10.
Designed for work applications, the Surface Hub allows users to share and create content in a group setting, making it ideal for business meetings and workplace productivity. The device features a 4K display, multi-touch capabilities that recognize up to 100 touch points, digital inking, integrated cameras, sensors and microphones. In addition, the panel offers OneNote whiteboarding, letting workers create a digital canvas for meetings and brainstorming. Office 365 is included as well, and apps like Skype make the display perfect for video conferencing. Finally, users can also share and edit content on the big screen from their laptops, tablets or smartphones.
Models will be available in 55-inch and 84-inch sizes. Full specs, pricing, and a release date have not been detailed yet, but the Microsoft Surface Hub is expected to start making its way to businesses later this year -- and with gadgets as cool as this in the conference room, workers might actually start looking forward to their next meeting.
