The Microsoft event happened yesterday, 26th October 2016 as announced earlier by Tech Habor. The event was scheduled in New York with all the buzz around it, we expected something exciting and for this Microsoft did not disappoint the audience at the events who were dazzled at the event. One of the highlights of the event was the Microsoft Surface Studio.
Windows PCs dominate computer sales, the hearts and tabs of the creative class belongs to Apple.
Microsoft is definitely not here to play this time and the market is so rife for the Surface Studio to take over from the iMac. Yesterday, Microsoft moved aggressively to break up that monopoly with the Surface Studio is designed for the creative process. Check out some of the features and specs of Microsoft’s latest piece of hardware.
Microsoft Surface Studio
The Surface Studio has 28” PixelSense™ display that provides a huge canvas for all kinds of work. Use it upright, or draw on it like a drafting table. It has a192 PPI (4500 x 3000 resolution) , 10 point Multi Touch with a 3:2 aspect ratio.
Zero Gravity Hinge
The Microsoft Surface Studio is designed with a Zero Gravity Hinge that moves the display weightlessly from an upright angle, down into Studio Mode with one hand.
Surface Studio Pen
Microsoft Surface Studio Pen is an intuitive tool for creation that gives you 1024 levels of pressure sensitivity, has a 12-month battery life, and also works with Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book.
One of the most exciting features for Artist, game creators, developers is the Microsoft Surface Studio Dial.
Surface Dial gives you quick and intuitive access to the brush settings you use most. Make fast and fluid color adjustments, and rotate or scale your canvas to achieve a finer level of control.
Attach to the Microsoft Surface Studio is an artistically crafted sculpt Mouse that perfectly fits the palm of your hand and a full cordless keyboard which is compatible with Android devices too.
Microsoft is clearly aiming this at the creative community who normally would buy a Macintosh. I’ll be interested to see how many actually make the jump.
Microsoft has certainly outdone themselves this time. Watch this space because in our next article we’ll look at the Microsoft Surface Book and the Microsoft Pro 4.
