Used more than 5000 times a week by users all over the world.


HubFile connects Surface Hub to one of the most important data sources of your enterprise: your on-premises file servers. There is no easier way to upload content of any size like 3D models, videos, huge PowerPoints or picture-collections to Surface Hub.“ Lorenz Goebel, CEO Sunato

No matter if you have a computer with Windows 98 or a smartphone, as long as your device is able to send eMails, Shorty guarantees the simplest way of presenting documents within a meeting.“ Carsten Meyer, Head of Architecture, Sunato

For presenters it is easy. And the way, you are used to!

„HubFile and Shorty help many industries in their digitalization efforts to use Surface Hub while sticking to the traditional, well-known way of storing data on file servers. You don´t need a cloud service for Surface Hub anymore. You don´t have to configure user access rights. HubFile and Shorty simply use what you have implemented already.“Klemens Voigt, Developer at Sunato and "the man behind HubFile and Shorty"

Which app is best for you?

Both apps can be used to transfer documents from file servers to Surface Hub and are easy to use, safe, easy to administrate and make miracast and cloud unnecessary. But there are differences …


  • Easy to use: Look&Feel similar to the File Explorer app of Surface Hub. No teaching necessary.
  • Safe: No extra rights management necessary: HubFile takes the user`s AD credentials to authenticate him at the enterprise on-premises file server.
  • Easy to administrate: HubFile backendservice runs on any Windows Server and is quickly configured.
  • No need for miracast or cloud
  • Unlimited: Download documents of almost any size to Surface Hub (tested for up to 4GB of size per file).


  • Easy to use: If your users can send eMails, they are able to use Shorty!
  • Safe: PINs will only be valid for the time your administrators configured them to be (for example 14 or 30 days)
  • Easy to administrate: Shorty backendservice runs on any Windows Server and is quickly configured.
  • No need for miracast or cloud
  • Limited: document-size is limited to the file size restrictions of the mail-servers in your company.
  • Quick: Input the PIN you received via eMail – and you get your documents. No annoying user credential input 🙂 [Security has been testified by big industry companies already!]
  • No need for Windows 10 – any device possible: Windows 98, iPhone, whatsoever … any device can be used to send data.
