Microsoft Reinvents the Traditional Whiteboard
The Surface Hub digital screen allows distributed teams to actively participate in business meetings
Microsoft revealed The Surface Hub, a digital whiteboard and modern conference room experience for businesses. The interactive 84-inch, Windows-powered 4K HDTV will bridge boundaries for remote teams and offer enhanced opportunities for collaboration through its Bluetooth connectivity and touchscreen surface.
A large scale version of its Surface tablet line, the new product includes built-in microphones, cameras, and sensors, meaning the screen can immediately detect when a person walks up to it. A team can sketch ideas freely using a stylus pen and touch display, with the option to move 3D images around on the screen. The whiteboard can also display presentations, graphs and digital content while employees simultaneously interact with the screen.
