Definition: Surface Hub


A whiteboard from Microsoft that combines Windows applications and Skype video calling. Introduced in 2015 and featuring 55" and 84" wall-mounted touchscreens, the Hub accepts standard Windows applications such as Office; however, an organization can create custom software to fulfill its teams' collaboration requirements. Apps from a user's computer can interact with the Hub as well. See Surface Studio, Surface tablet and Surface Book.
