Samsung recently debuted two new additions to its premium monitors line-up, promising to put professional-grade picture quality within reach for professional and consumer audiences alike.
Series 7 Touch (SC770)
The Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor is Samsung’s first multi-touch display optimised 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 offers a 60-degree tilt, thin bezel, and wide viewing angles.
The Series 7 SC750 monitor is capable of a 90-degree pivot, with Samsung saying that it is optimised for surfing the web and viewing documents in both landscape and portrait modes.
The SC750 monitor touts a 5,000:1 contrast ratio, which Samsung said is five times that of a standard monitor.
Both the Series 7 SC750 monitor and the Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor will be available worldwide in the first quarter of 2013, Samsung said.
Series 9 (SB970)
First released in the second half of 2012 to the U.S. market, Samsung said that its Series 9 monitor will also be on display at CES this year (2013).
The Series 9 monitor uses a PLS (Plane Line Switching) panel and Wide-Quad high-definition resolution (WQHD), delivering four times more detail than traditional HD.
