New Surface Hub is a monster all-in-one PC with a 4K screen

Microsoft wants to transform the workplace with the Surface Hub, a giant 84-inch touch-enabled 4K screen that runs Windows 10.

If you’ve spent hours sifting through endless flipcharts, or photos of flipcharts, then Microsoft has a vision to end the tedium. It’s answer is a huge 4K screen it calls the Surface Hub.

Like its tablet namesake, the Surface Hub supports multi-touch and an accurate and pressure sensitive digital pen. But it also supports multiple pens at the same time, so more than one person can be writing on the screen at the same.

It’s a full PC, so has built-in dual cameras, microphones and speakers. This means you can use it as a video conference screen, and you’ll use Microsoft-owned Skype to do that, of course.

Key to this is full-screen version of OneNote where you can import all sorts of diagrams and annotate them on the screen, and you can do this while conferencing using snapped windows at the side of the screen.

You can also share content from other devices to the Surface Hub, which you can then share with people on a video call.
