The following documentation was taken from the Productivity Hub 2010 Installation Guide:

Server System Requirements

SharePoint Server 2010 (version 14.0.4762.1010 or greater)

The Microsoft Productivity Hub 2010 solution is a backup of a Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 site collection. To install the Productivity Hub solution, you must have Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Standard edition or Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise edition already installed and configured.


To enable the search capabilities within the Productivity Hub, a Search Service must be associated with the Productivity Hub site collection and configured to crawl and index the Productivity Hub site collection.

Favorites and Ratings

To leverage the favorites and rating capabilities of the Productivity Hub, a Managed Metadata Service and User Profile Service must be provisioned and configured for the SharePoint 2010 web application where the Productivity Hub will be installed. Additionally, the user account that performs the installation of the Productivity Hub must have administrative rights to the User Profile store.

Disk Space

Initial installation of the Productivity Hub without content packs consumes roughly 30 megabytes of disk space.
Productivity Hub content packs are the mechanism for adding training content to your Productivity Hub installation. Content packs are available for Microsoft products like Office 2010 and Windows 7 from the Microsoft download center. Each content pack can range in size from 50 megabytes to 300 megabytes. The number of content packs you install will determine the disk space consumed by the Productivity Hub site collection. Once installed, content packs for the Productivity Hub are managed by SharePoint 2010 via its content database.

Client System Requirements

Browser Support and Configuration

Microsoft Internet Explorer versions 7 or 8, Mozilla Firefox 3.5 and above, and Safari are supported for use with the 2010 version of the Microsoft Productivity Hub. Microsoft Internet Explorer version 6 is not supported by the 2010 version of the Productivity Hub.

Silverlight 3 or later is required for the default Productivity Hub 2010 experience. Additional configuration steps are required by your SharePoint administrator to use Productivity Hub 2010 without its default Silverlight features (see Configure Site for Down-level Experience in the Release Notes section of the installation guide).
To ensure complete compatibility with the Silverlight and JavaScript features of the site, you may need to add the Productivity Hub site to your Trusted Sites list in Internet Explorer using the following steps:
1. Navigate to the home page of the Microsoft Productivity Hub site where you installed it
2. From the main tool bar in IE, click Tools > Internet Options
3. Select the Security Tab, then click Trusted Sites and click the Sites button
4. Uncheck the checkbox for “Require server verification…”, and then click the Add button to add the site as a trusted site
5. Click Close
6. Click OK to close the Internet Options

Content Formats

Most of the content contained within the Productivity Hub is based on file formats found in the 2007 Microsoft Office System. Opening and viewing these files requires the respective Office System applications or viewers capable of opening 2007 Office System documents (i.e. .docx, .xlsx, pptx). The videos contained within the Productivity Hub solution are based on the Windows Media Video (WMV) file format and can be played in Windows Media Player version 10 and greater.

Now that SP 2010 SP 2 has been released, is a new version of the productivity hub in the works?
And is there a way that an admin or user can look at the hub sharepoint site and tell what version is installed?
Thank you!

Now that SP2013 is out, when will the updated version of the Productivity Hub be available for download?
