Microsoft Surface Hub

Overview

Participants in the office and from remote locations can use this high-definition touch-screen display to brainstorm and get creative throughout the office: conference rooms, huddles spaces, and open collaboration areas. Use it as a digital whiteboard while sharing screen notes with remote participants, who can join meetings automatically.

Workplace trends

  • A mobile workforce that requires tools to connect onsite and offsite teams so they can work on the same documents in real time
  • Organizations are looking to make more efficient use of their office space, which can include a reduction in desk space, but an open layout that lends itself to team collaboration
  • Collaboration spaces are popping up because impromptu, short-duration meetings are more frequent

The Surface Hub engages employees and improves group productivity because it has the features we expect and rely on in the modern workplace, including 84-inch and 55-inch models.

  • Windows 10 operating system
  • Motion-tracking technology
  • Simple touch controls
  • OneNote whiteboard
  • Skype for Business
  • Dual built-in cameras
  • Integrated mic array and speakers

Stormboard

With all its features, the Surface Hub gets even better when you use it with the Stormboard app. Stormboard is a real-time brainstorming and collaboration tool that uses digital sticky notes. Those notes can be shared from the Surface Hub with collaborators around the world.

Stormboard transforms it into the easiest, most convenient brainstorming tool. Write text and create images on the displays, and move them around the Surface Hub display. Zoom in and out of your notes using multi-touch finger gesturing on the display itself. Other great features include:

Video Conferencing and Collaboration

Video conferencing has been a critical component of business collaboration for many years. But today, with more integration possibilities, video conferencing has evolved into a more collaborative experience. With more powerful technology, communication can be about more than just being face-to-face. It can include content sharing, white-boarding, and annotation – and other tools that make it possible to have an actual “working meeting.” Video collaboration systems bring people together in new ways, expanding on the capabilities of traditional video conferencing.

AVI-SPL’s video collaboration solutions include the ability to see and edit the same documents in real time — documents that can be shared wirelessly from personal devices, annotated, and saved. The fluid desktop experience of Skype for Business works in group collaboration settings.  Your video collaboration solution can be sourced from an on-premise system, a cloud subscription service, or a hybrid of the two.

Complementing these enhanced video collaboration systems are open collaboration workspaces and huddle rooms that make it easy to quickly gather in small groups, connect with others outside the office or organization, and exchange ideas.

Workplace Trends

  • As employees bring two or more personal devices (like smartphone and tablets) to work they require the video collaboration solutions that will enable them to be productive from on-site and offsite locations.
  • Companies are designing healthy spaces to improve employee performance and productivity as well as attract and retain top talent.
  • The modern office is designed to better facilitate a range of employee experiences with flexible spaces devoted specifically to activities like collaboration, concentration, innovation, socialization, and revitalization.

Unified Communications & Collaboration

Today’s meeting spaces are the focus of workplace transformation. Change how people can work with one another, and you change what they can do. Wireless sharing, automated control systems, and managed services have helped transform meeting spaces into an area where your coworkers want to be so they can come together and solve problems.

With all the changes in the work environment — mobility, huddle spaces, open collaboration areas — the meeting room remains a vital asset to your organization.  Today’s meeting rooms are more than areas where team members come together to plan and discuss. It’s where they get work done, the space where those remote and on-site, customers and colleagues, can come together and make progress.

Workplace Trends

  • Activity-based work spaces empower different generations to be productive and collaborative in the ways they are most comfortable
  • Meeting rooms with infinite canvas video walls give teams an unlimited amount of digital space on which they can share, store, and work on ideas for projects.
  • Proximity location software lets users know through their smart devices if a room is in use or booked as they approach it
  • Sensors that detect when a room is vacant and no longer in use, so that systems can return to idle mode
  • Meetings rooms are becoming areas where work gets done, not just talked about
  • Customized room control for different user types and access levels
  • Automation technology that readies room for collaboration in less than a minute
  • Move toward wireless technology

Huddle Rooms

Work isn’t confined to the office anymore. It’s a fluid process that allows you and your colleagues to be mobile throughout the day. Because what matters is getting the work done. The workplace is reflecting this change – even as some spaces are getting smaller, but they’re also opening up in terms of their layout. Companies realize the value of dedicated huddle spaces where small groups can come together as needed to collaborate, even if just for a few minutes.

Workplace Trends

  • Organizations are focused on getting the most value out of their real estate and showing ROI per square foot
  • Giving coworkers the opportunity to work closely together as needed
  • Alongside the traditional meeting space, the huddle space is taking its place as a necessary environment in many enterprises and SMBs
