At the Windows 10 briefing event, Microsoft made many big announcements, and unveiled a giant new device for the office running Windows 10. The new device is called the Surface Hub, and it’s the next generation of Microsoft’s Perceptive Pixel, the new category of Surface is a massive 84-inch 4K display including support for pen and multi-touch gestures input.
Surface Hub is meant for business customers and conference rooms, but Microsoft says, it will be an affordable solution to help teams in the workplace to collaborate in a new way. The device features dual cameras, microphones, Bluetooth and NFC connectivity, and various other “advanced sensors”.
The basic idea of the Surface Hub is to have a device to collaborate, have meetings; interact with data on the screen using a stylus or your fingers, and share work with anyone.
It runs Windows 10, but it features a customized interface tailored for the device. It offers OneNote as the main app to draw and annotate, Skype video calls, you can run any Windows application, and other Windows 10 devices can connect easily.
