Samsung Unveils Premium Touch-Screen Monitor for Professionals and Consumers Alike

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today debuted two new additions to its lineup of premium monitors, putting professional-grade picture quality within reach for professional and consumer audiences alike. The innovative Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor comes optimized for Windows 8, while the Series 7 SC750 features a slim, ergonomic design and premium picture quality. These CES Innovation Award-winning monitors will be on display at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Samsung’s booth, #12004 in Central Hall, from January 8-11, 2013.

“We are committed to serving an expanding market of aspiring young professionals with the professional-grade monitors that match their needs,” said Jung-Hwan Kim, Senior Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “As the industry leader for seven consecutive years, Samsung is exploring new technology that provides discerning users with affordable, cutting-edge monitors that deliver a differentiated user experience.”

Series 7 Touch (SC770): Touch-Sensitive Monitor

The Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor is Samsung’s first multi-touch display optimized for Windows 8. Supporting up to 10 points of simultaneous multi-touch, users can drag, rotate or select objects on the monitor using their fingers.

The flexible, ergonomic stand of the SC770 conveniently adjusts to user preferences, offering a 60-degree tilt for comfortable use of the touch display. Additionally, the ultra-thin bezel along with wide viewing angles provides a truly immersive viewing experience.

Series 7 (SC750): Ergonomic Design

The Series 7 SC750 monitor sports a slim, ergonomic design that is capable of a 90-degree pivot for enhanced convenience to users. It is optimized for surfing the web and viewing documents in both landscape and portrait modes.

The monitor’s sleek stand precisely positions the screen at a comfortable eye-level without the need for a support fixture and its cylinder-shaped metal stand accentuates the beauty of the slim monitor. Displaying ultra-sharp images, the SC750 monitor touts a 5,000:1 contrast ratio, which is five times that of a standard monitor.

The Series 7 SC750 monitor and the Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor will be available worldwide in the first quarter of 2013.

Series 9 (SB970): Professionally Pre-Calibrated Monitor

First released in the second half of 2012 to the U.S. market, Samsung’s award-winning Series 9 monitor will also be on display at CES. Offering unparalleled picture quality and life-like color accuracy, each individual monitor is individually hand-tuned by technicians before it is shipped. In addition, a built-in color calibration engine enables users to adjust the uniformity, gamma and white balance of the display using Samsung’s proprietary Natural Color Expert technology, resulting in the most accurate color possible.

The Series 9 monitor also utilizes a PLS (Plane Line Switching) panel and Wide-Quad high-definition resolution (WQHD), delivering four times more detail than traditional HD. Inspired by modern skyscrapers, the product’s elegant, minimalistic design has netted the SB970 monitor some of the industry’s top design honors, including the 2012 IDEA Bronze Award and Japan Good Design Award.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings.

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer.

Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
