Samsung rolls out new curved monitor
Samsung has presented a new curved monitor by the name of SE790C that happens to be the company’s most advanced curved display so far. The new monitor delivers an enhanced immersive and comfortable viewing experience and is perfect for multimedia and multitasking thanks to the curved design, the implemented ultra-wide quad high definition (ULTRA-WQHD) resolution, a superior contrast ratio and more.
“All curves are not created equal. Samsung’s SE790C offers an industry-leading and award-winning curvature for a truly immersive, comfortable and differentiating viewing experience,” said Seoggi Kim, Senior Vice President, Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics. “Combined with superior picture quality, productivity and entertainment-enhancing technology features, and design sophistication, our latest curved monitor delivers on our brand promise to push the limits of what display solutions and innovative technology can deliver.”
The new Samsung SE790C sports a 34-inch curved display that runs at ULTRA-WQHD resolution, which happens to be exactly 3440 x 1440 pixels, and offers best-in-class static contrast ratio of 3000:1 and 300 cd/m2 typical brightness. In addition the monitor has wide 178-degree viewing angles horizontally and vertically that optimize the viewing experience and minimize picture distortion and a curvature radius of 3000 mm that creates a distortion-free viewing experience with less eye strain and enhanced comfort for the viewer.
The Samsung SE790C also offers Picture-by-Picture (PbP) and Picture-in-Picture (PiP) 2.0 functions for enhanced work efficiency. PbP allows users to easily connect two devices, such as a desktop, laptop, gaming device (Xbox, PlayStation, etc.) or Set-Top Box (STB), and view both simultaneously on the monitor without compromising screen real-estate. PiP 2.0 enables multi-tasking without the need to downscale content. The monitor also is equipped with four USB 3.0 super-charging ports to eliminate the need for a docking station and maintain 24/7 connectivity for all your devices. In addition the monitor has a 7-watt dual speaker stereo system for immersive sound while playing games and a fast 4 ms response time, which is perfect for dynamic 3D shooters and other applications that require clear and smooth display action with no motion blur or ghosting.
Samsung has not shared any details on the pricing of the SE790C and its market arrival date but given the tech specs of the monitor the SE790C will likely be expensive.
