Samsung brings Ultra High Definition to desktop computers
Samsung Electronics America has announced the immediate availability of the new 32-inch Ultra High Definition (UHD) professional desktop UD970 monitor. The new Samsung product features four times the pixels of standard monitors, 99.5 per cent Adobe RGB and 100 per cent sRGB color compliance and is a perfect solution for professionals that require high resolution and accurate image reproduction, such as video and photo editing, graphic design, mapping and simulation, architecture, engineering and more.
“For today’s professionals, UHD display technology unlocks a new dimension of rich and detailed imagery, enabling them to take their creativity and productivity to a new level,” said Tod Pike, Senior Vice President of Samsung’s Enterprise Business Division. “Samsung has a long history of leadership in display technologies and we’re excited to bring this new advancement to creative professionals and enterprise users.”
The Samsung UD970 comes with a 31.5-inch low-glare PLS 178-degree wide viewing angle display that has 40 per cent more viewing area than a standard 27-inch monitor. The display works at 3840 x 2160 pixel resolution and has true 10-bit color support capable of displaying over 1 billion colors. In addition, the Samsung Natural Color Expert engine with 16-bit hardware calibration and 11 selectable color space settings enable the UD970 to deliver image quality to meet each professional’s specific needs.
To maximize efficiency and multitasking, the UD970 includes an adjustable stand with 30-degree left-right swivel and 90-degree pivot capabilities for portrait and landscape orientations that provide users with better ergonomics. In addition, users can use the Picture By Picture function to split the screen into two or four quadrants and display unique video signals in each.
The new Samsung UD970 will be available later this month for USD 1999.99 and can be purchased through various Samsung retailers and channel partners.
