Samsung Adds Wide Screen Monitor Trio
Samsung introduced Thursday three new Samsung monitors with LCD technology and modern minimalist designs.
The monitors, which will be on display at next weeks CES 2019 in Las Vegas, include the CRG9 Samsung Space Monitor series, designed for optimal gaming experiences and the 4K Ultra HD UR59C designed with a curved screen optimized for content creators.
“Samsung’s latest monitor lineup is incredibly versatile, and demonstrates our commitment to continued innovation and leadership in the category,” stated Seog-gi Kim, Samsung Visual Display Business executive VP. “All of these monitors are part of our larger strategy this year, to keep giving you choices so you can get what you want— beautiful, hardworking devices that inspire you to do more.”
Samsung said the Samsung Space Monitor series “leverages its sleek design and functionality to allow users to focus on what’s on the screen and not what’s around it.”
This emphasizes innovative desktop space saving advancements, such as the use of a minimalist, fully-integrated arm that clamps to the desk to free up desk space. The Samsung Space Monitor is said to be both easy to set up and adjust when not in use and simple to push back and store flat against the wall.
The Space Monitor features easy ergonomic adjustment, port access, and a discreet cable management system to improve the form and function in the home or office.
Samsung’s Space Monitors are available in a 27-inch QHD-resolution version and a 32-inch 4K UHD-resolution version. Both offer tack-sharp image clarity.
Samsung Space Monitor has a unique arm stand, which can disappear into the back of the monitor’s slim-bezel. When using the stand, Space Monitor can be easily tilted or extended from the wall, Samsung said.
The monitor can also be lowered to the desk surface and its Zero Height Adjustable Stand enhances viewing comfort while eliminating cable clutter by integrating power and HDMI cords through the arm for a clean, flexible look.
The 49-inch CRG9 gaming monitor features a Super Ultra-Wide display with dual QHD resolution. It is positioned as “the world’s first high-resolution, super ultra-wide gaming monitor with a 32:9 aspect ratio.”
If offers a 120 Hz native refresh rate panel with a fast 4ms response time for minimized image lag and motion blur to keep up with fast-paced games. The gaming monitor also features AMD Radeon FreeSync 2 HDR Technology to reduce stutter, screen tearing and input latency for the best possible frame rate.
The CRG9 features dual QHD resolution (5120×1440) with support for HDR10 high dynamic range (HDR) while outputting peak brightness of 1,000 nits. It is said to produce “super fine” brightness and shadow detail. Support for the HDR10 profile produces a wide contrast range, which Samsung said affords advanced specular highlight details not seen in traditional gaming monitors. The monitor also leverages Samsung’s quantum dot technology for wide color gamut coverage, a 1,800mm screen curvature and an ultra-wide field of view.
Equivalent to two 27-inch QHD 16:9 monitors placed side-by-side, the 32:9 super ultra-wide screen also provides multi-tasking flexibility, assisted by PbP (picture-by-picture) functionality to allow two video sources to be viewed on the same screen.
The CRG9 includes one HDMI port, two Display Ports, USB 3.0 and headphone connectivity options. Samsung also designed the CRG9 with a smaller stand size for convenience and flexibility in every gamer’s space.
The 32-inch UR59C monitor has a curved 4K UHD screen with a 2,500:1 contrast ratio and full 3840×2160 4K UHD resolution supporting up to one billion colors. The 1500R curvature provides an immersive experience when viewing games and video up close.
The UR59C will be available in dark blue gray and will feature a super-slim design, with a depth of only 6.7mm. The 31.5-inch screen has a simple two-prong base that reduces its footprint on the working surface.
Samsung the CRG9 monitor will be available later in 2019 and the UR59c models are available for pre-order now.
