Microsoft will release Surface Hub for business on 1st July. It will be available in both 55-inch and 84-inch models.
With Windows 10, Surface Hub provides a platform to build amazing large-screen apps for group productivity, such as the already-built-in custom Office and Skype for Business apps. Surface Hub is a fully integrated alternative to costly videoconferencing and digital whiteboard solutions, providing a complete collaboration experience at a competitive price.
The Surface Hub experience is designed around a highly responsive screen built for ink and touch. Both versions of Surface Hub are integrated with optically bonded displays capable of detecting 100 points of multitouch and up to three simultaneous pen inputs, dual 1080p front-facing video cameras, and a four-element microphone array that detects and follows voices to eliminate background noise during videoconferencing sessions. Surface Hub also features built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and a variety of ports for easy wired and wireless connectivity options, allowing devices to share content to the screen.
Surface Hub and related accessories will be available to order starting July 1 and will begin shipping worldwide in September in 24 markets including the United States, Canada, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Qatar, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates and the United Kingdom.
Surface Hub 55-inch for huddle spaces, small conference rooms and offices is priced at $6,999, and Surface Hub 84-inch for larger meeting rooms is priced at $19,999.
