Microsoft has released the AI-enabled Surface Hub 2 Smart Camera. The device has automatic framing and tilt compensation to ensure an accurate image despite meeting participants' positions.

Microsoft has unveiled the Surface Hub 2 Smart Camera for Surface Hub 2S. The AI-enabled camera, designed for meeting rooms, has a high-quality video to ensure participants are seen and heard regardless of their position.

The 4K ultra-wide-angle lens camera has a horizontal field of view over 136°, ensuring a crisp image of anyone or anything within 1.3 to 26.2 ft (0.4 to 8.0 m). The device has automatic framing technology, zooming out and adjusting its angle to make sure everyone in the room can be seen.

Other AI features include light adjustment and tilt compensation, which accounts for the camera position and straightens the output video; Microsoft claims this tool enables more natural eye contact. Distortion correction reduces the warping of the picture caused by the wide-angle lens, ensuring that proportions are accurate.

The gadget has a 12-megapixel sensor and one teraflop of computing power. The smart camera can be magnetically attached to the Surface Hub 2S, connected via USB-C and has a machined aluminium body.

The Surface Hub 2 Smart Camera is available to purchase now for US$799.99 (€956.27). From May 31st, the gadget will be able to be bought with the 85-in Surface Hub 2S for a combined price of US$21,999.99 (€19,928.91).
