With Surface Hub 2S, enjoy the freedom to take your ideas with you and turn any space into a teamwork space. Wherever you or your team moves, works or collaborates, the Hub 2S easily moves with you thanks to the Roam™ Mobile Stand created by our partners at Steelcase. It is also slimmer and 40% lighter than the original Surface Hub. And with the APC™ Charge Mobile Battery, your team’s workflow remains uninterrupted as you unplug and move to a new space.

Surface Hub 2S 85”

For a large-room meeting experience with big teams, pair the 85” with a high-resolution enhanced camera and mics.

Surface Hub 2S 50”

For smaller spaces and quick huddles, the 50” is a perfect fit with the Surface Hub 2 Camera,5 integrated far-field mics and crystal-clear speakers.

Bridge The Gap

Whether a team is in the same room or spread across the globe, Surface Hub 2S is a powerful platform for Microsoft Teams and Skype for business meetings that lets remote employees actively participate in meetings or working sessions. When using Surface Hub 2S, teammates no longer have to worry about not feeling “present” enough or missing out on real-time collaboration. With Surface Hub 2S and its 4K+ resolution screen and barely visible two-element front-facing stereo speakers, your teammates can be seen and heard. And with an array of full-band 8-element microphones and a 4K-capable camera, you look and sound crisp and clear.

Let Ideas Lead

With the hectic pace of work today, it’s tough to stay focused and feel creative. Ideas are often born and die within the constraints of conference room walls. No more worrying about getting kicked out of the conference room and taking photos of the whiteboard – with Microsoft Whiteboard you can pick up where the team left off with a persistent, digital teamworking canvas you can share across devices and platforms. It lets you easily sign in to work with your Office 365 files, access must-have Microsoft and business apps natively, project content wirelessly with Miracast, and interact naturally with Surface Hub 2 Pen and touch.

An All-In-One Device


Surface Hub 2S harnesses the full power of Microsoft – Windows 10, Microsoft Teams, Office 365, Microsoft Whiteboard and the intelligent cloud – to unlock the productivity of your team. This new device packs even more performance into a thinner, lighter, more versatile design. 40% lighter than its predecessor, and with a 60% thinner display, this device fits easily into any space – from a traditional conference room to a compact huddle space. The vibrant 4K+ 50-inch multi-touch display offers an inviting canvas to co-create with the best pen and touch experience and the highest resolution compared to any device in its class. Plus, this device offers 50% faster graphics performance than the original Surface Hub.

Teamwork Makes Dreamwork With Surface Hub 2S

Surface Hub 2S gives teams the flexibility to come together wherever they work best. It takes something that has long been a fixture in the conference room – the shared screen – and transforms it into a mobile computer, built for teams. This device offers the thinnest edge and smallest bezels in its class, bringing you closer to your content and your team and integrating seamlessly into any office environment. When paired with the Steelcase Roam Mobile Stand and APC Charge Mobile Battery, Surface Hub 2S creates a mobile collaboration experience that frees teams from the conference room and allows your ideas to be as mobile as you are – no AC power connectivity required.

Come Together With Surface Hub 2S

Too often, great ideas get stuck on the conference room whiteboard and the team’s flow gets broken when the meeting ends. This device enables teams to work digitally all the way through their creative process, with access to the tools they rely on. Easily sign into your Office 365 account to access and interact with the content you need, run must-have Microsoft and business applications natively, and interact naturally with Surface Hub 2 Pen and touch. The Microsoft Whiteboard allows people to collaborate on a shared digital canvas from almost any device so it’s easy to pick up where you left off, keeping teams in their flow.
