Microsoft designed the first Surface Hub to connect teams dispersed across buildings and time zones with a new, more intuitive and inclusive way to hold meetings, share content and work together. With the changes in our work landscape and more people working remotely, now more than ever businesses are looking for communication technology that helps recreate the energy and connection we feel when we’re in a room together.
In these last twelve months of remote work, we’ve seen our customers transform how they use Surface Hub across a range of industries.
As many parts of the world continue to work from home, or anticipate the relaxing of distancing guidelines in order move back to the office, they plan for new hybrid and satellite work environments, Surface Hub 85" will ease and facilitate that transition. One benefit to a larger screen that the Surface Hub 85" provides is that it can help implement social distancing for people to stay six feet apart while working together.
Businesses can make reservations for the Surface Hub 85” from January 2021.
For the first time, you can run the same Windows 10 Pro or Windows 10 Enterprise on Surface Hub to gain the familiar experience and features you enjoy on your PC, like taskbar, Start menu, applications and more on a brilliant large screen.
This update in October 2020 addresses customer requests and brings new features to help customers configure, manage and collaborate on their first generation and second-generation Surface Hub devices.
This new, larger size Surface Hub 85” represents the culmination of years of listening to our customers to better understand their needs.
To help customers bring people, place and technology together, we collaborated with our partners at
Steelcase to co-design a series of mount solutions. Steelcase Roam for the Surface Hub 85” brings a
floating wall mount for perfect integration, a floor supported wall mount for easy install, and a mobile cart
that provides flexibility and re-configurability for any space.
At more than 85” we have brought customers a larger screen in a smaller chassis than the previous version, with bezels that are 45% smaller, a display that is 20% thinner, and 30% lighter in weight than its predecessor. The fit and finish of the product delivers a level of quality that cannot be found elsewhere.

I’m personally thrilled to see the public announcement
of the Surface Hub 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 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 85” delivers on the idea of remote and in-person collaboration in a truly massive scale.
Empower teams to collaborate whenever and wherever their ideas strike. Surface Hub is thin and lightweight, and enables mobile, cordless, uninterrupted teamwork. Turn any space into a teamwork space.
Be seen, be heard, and actively participate in the group discussion with best-in-class technology. Remote meetings and ad-hoc calls run seamlessly with Microsoft Teams or Skype for Business.
