3 Things You Didn't Know About the Microsoft Surface Hub 2S

By now, Microsoft Surface Hub 2S has taken the corporate world by storm as it is known for its sleek design and new outstanding features. As compared to the Surface Hub 1, which was launched in 2015, the Microsoft Surface Hub 2S is now equipped with thinner bezel and comes with a stand to wheel it around conference rooms or in an open-plan office space, making it ideal for many companies to integrate Microsoft Surface Hub 2S in their office settings.

With growing demands in the use of video conferencing as a part of the ecosystem in the business environment, Microsoft has equipped the Microsoft Surface Hub 2S with a 4K camera that is powered by the USB-C and can be detached from its mount. As the Microsoft Surface Hub 2S is designed to be wheeled around the office space, a snapback mechanism was created for the camera in order to prevent any damage from crashing into any doors.

''Microsoft Surface Hub 2 provides a robust whiteboard experience, but your whiteboard can be shared across Windows 10, iOS, and Android devices, so you can jump back into the same brainstorm session anytime, anywhere from any devices,'' - Microsoft.

This is one of the compelling features that sets Microsoft Surface Hub 2S apart from any other interactive whiteboard which is the dynamic collaboration whereby it enables multiple users to collaborate simultaneously in a single workplace.

Despite its amazing features that Microsoft Surface Hub 2S is equipped with, there are other interesting features that are discovered by our ESCO team. Here are the 3 things that you didn't know about the Microsoft Surface Hub 2S:

1) You can beautify your drawings and writings on the Microsoft Whiteboard function.

When you draw or write using the Surface Hub 2 Pen on the Surface Hub 2S, they can be easily beautified with a built-in function in Whiteboard (application). This makes sharing your ideas simple and of course, beautiful. Simply circle the writings/drawings and press on the magic wand and instantly, it beautifies your writing/drawing.

2) It can withstand 100 Touchpoints.
