How to use Nureva™ Span™ Workspace with Microsoft® Surface Hub™

There are three different approaches/options for displaying and interacting with Nureva™ Span™ Workspace on a Microsoft® Surface Hub™: 

  1. Wired connection with a PC or laptop (recommended)
  2. Wireless connection with a PC or laptop
  3. Run via the built-in browser 

Option 1: Wired connection with a PC or laptop

A wired connection between a Microsoft® Surface Hub™ and an external PC/laptop is the fastest and most reliable way to access Span Workspace. In this setup, Span Workspace will run on the external PC/laptop, and the Microsoft® Surface Hub™ is used as a display and touch input device. Depending on the model of your Microsoft® Surface Hub™, one or more of the following connection options will be available:

  • HDMI/DisplayPort/VGA (for video) and USB (for touch)
  • USB-C (for both video and touch)

NOTE: To leverage the multi-touch capabilities of your Microsoft® Surface Hub™ with Span Workspace, you must use the wall client of Span. You can download the software at the Download section of our support site. 

Option 2: Wireless connection with a PC or laptop

You can also use Miracast to connect your Windows laptop with a Microsoft® Surface Hub™ in a wireless fashion. For details, please review the respective article in Microsoft’s support database, as it may vary by Windows version and Microsoft® Surface Hub™ model.

Option 3: Run via the built-in web browser 

Technically, you can also run the web client of Span Workspace in the Edge browser that’s integrated with Microsoft® Surface Hub™. However, please note that this won’t support the multi-touch capabilities of Span Workspace. Also, as Microsoft Edge isn’t a certified browser for Span, minor bugs may occur.
