Surface Hub 2 Camera reframes, adjusts lighting and enables wide angles of view, all without any warping, distortions or depth-of-field issues that might otherwise limit what is visible, claims Microsoft. “The team put tremendous work into tuning the experience to capture and frame what is occurring in the room while being smooth and natural for remote viewers or participants. Whether someone leaves the room, enters or walks up to interact with the display, everyone in the room is in view and in focus”, explained the company in a blog post.

The camera houses a 12-megapixel sensor, with a 136-degree field of view lens that can keep things near (.4m) and far (8m) simultaneously in focus across a wide variety conference room sizes and configurations. It has 1 Teraflop of compute power along with a new algorithm the company developed to automatically compensate for tilt, distortions and wide-angle corrections so object appear as they would in real life.

Further, its AI can detect people across a variety of postures, lighting conditions and rooms, ensuring every participant is equally visible. All of this is housed inside a machined aluminum body, connected with a USB-C mount and attached with a simple magnetic click.
