Surface Hub 2S 85" - Collaboration at a Massive Scale

Published Sep 22 2020 08:06 AM 7,209 Views

I am excited to echo the announcement from Robin Seiler’s Surface Blog, that starting today in the US, and more markets to follow, the Surface Hub 2S 85” is available for pre-sales reservations.  We also shared that the device will be available to commercial customers starting in January 2021*.



I’m personally thrilled to see the public announcement of the Surface Hub 2S 85" because it has shared space with me since word of COVID-19 struck the USA.  I talked the Surface Engineering team into letting me borrow a device so I could attempt some demos in my satellite office location.

What impresses me most about the Surface Hub 2S 85” is the craftsmanship and attention to detail through-out the device.  The form, fit, and finish of the materials, even on the early prototype I’ve been using, is built with fine precision.  This is a product that will truly become the cornerstone to any collaborative environment.   


Since those early days in March, I’ve been sharing remote presentations, a few times a week, to customers under NDA, explaining the capabilities and technical details inside the largest Surface device we’ve ever made.  The device is a true joy to use.  It starts with the ability to clearly see co-workers and customers in Microsoft Teams Gallery View where the 85” capitalizes on its size to show people simply in a larger form. From here we can also open the Microsoft Whiteboard and brainstorm with co-workers across the globe while interacting with them across audio and video feeds. The Surface Hub 2S 85” delivers on the idea of remote and in-person collaboration in a truly massive scale.


I’m happy to share that we can now provide this complete demo and product walk through, no NDA required.  If interested, please reach out to your Surface Specialist to schedule a time and if you don’t have a Surface Specialist to work with, look for an upcoming Webinar schedule we’ll be sharing soon on this blog.
