Hi Tech Community,

 

Does anyone know the Surface Hub 2S in-built microphones range?

 

Thanks a lot,

Anca

Hi @Anca_V 

 

I've not seen any figured quotes anywhere, but we've tested whispering at around 15-20 feet and it picks it up just fine. Has made for some very interesting meetings where people haven't realised it can pick up what people are whispering under their breath! :grinning_face_with_sweat:

 

Ultimately, the microphones are highly directional and very sensitive, and will adjust their sensitivity based on the volume coming from the room.

 

Thanks

Hi @Daniel Hudson and @Anca_V,

 

Surface Hub 2S will have a new feature that resolves just that, unintended background voices heard in the meeting. "An integrated 8-microphone, full-band array with Beamforming focuses on people speaking in front of ..."

Work is underway so check again shortly.

 

Best regards,
