Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2

Microsoft announces the Surface Hub 2 with 50.5-inch display

This, and the fact that there's a smaller 4K option, is similar to what Google's been offering for a year and a half with Jamboard. Pen input is still available as well and I'm told the input accuracy should match that of other Surface products.

Surface Hub 2 looks a lot sleeker and more portable than Surface Hub 1 and was built for "immersive collaboration", Seiler said.

The giant screen can now rotate into portrait or landscape mode easily and can be scaled through tiling up to four screens together for larger spaces. While we are having a video call with someone, we do not have to shrink their face, but instead, use the full capacity of the Surface Hub 2. The device will enable businesses to take advantage of all Microsoft's core business applications such as Teams, Microsft Whiteboard, Office 365 and to name a few with the power of Windows 10. Microsoft's new Surface Hub 2's design is a huge leap forward from the first-gen Surface Hub, and it looks absolutely lovely. This allows you to place four Surface Hub 2 tablets side by side to make one giant screen or to utilize them individually to display different documents on each screen. The 50.5-inch Surface Hub 2 trades the outgoing model's 16:9 aspect ratio for 3:2, ups the resolution to "greater than 4K", and reduces the weight to between 55 and 77 pounds, which is lighter than the first Surface Hub. Seeing four of the attractive Surface Hub 2s lined up together has undeniable visual effect and will have a profound impact on what groups can accomplish together, allowing users to display multiple pieces of content side-by-side. "That's why Microsoft today is announcing Surface Hub 2, designed from the ground up to get people engaged - to get out of their seats, create and dynamically collaborate as a team, regardless of location".

Putin opens Crimean Bridge
Originally, the bridge was expected to be built before 2018 and put into operation in the summer of 2019. The Kerch Strait Bridge will open to cars and public transport on Wednesday, May 16.

Immersive Collaboration provides us with the life-size video conferencing. We've sold to more than 5000 customers across 25 markets.

The Surface Hub 2, which Microsoft will begin testing later this year and ship some time in 2019, is the successor to Surface Hub 1, which launched in March 2016.
