Samsung Electronics announced it would add new monitor models to its lineup, strengthening its position as the industry leader in visual display for consumers.
In a statement, Samsung said new products from the Odyssey, ViewFinity, and Smart Monitor lines will offer unparalleled image quality and a host of cutting-edge features for users who want to work, play, and live through their monitor display.
By introducing the Odyssey Neo G9, the world’s first single monitor with dual ultra-high definition resolution, Samsung added it is redefining the ultra-wide display category. According to Samsung, the advancement demonstrates Samsung’s industry-leading leadership in providing the most realistic and lifelike gaming experience available.
“We are introducing the future of gaming monitors with our Odyssey Neo G9, making each game more lifelike with innovative features and picture quality on a new scale. CES is the perfect place to showcase our innovations that can take not only gamers but also graphic designers or TV fans to the next level while providing personalized experiences across a range of integrated smart apps,” said Hoon Chung, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
Odyssey Neo G9: The World’s First Dual UHD Gaming Monitor
The Samsung Odyssey Neo G9 Gaming Monitor provides gamers with unprecedented detail and a wide field of view. For the first time, Samsung claims a gaming monitor with a 7,682,160 resolution and a 32:9 aspect ratio is available on a single screen.
Its 1000R curved 57-inch screen employs quantum micro LED technology in conjunction with the VESA Display HDR 1000 specification to give outstanding imaging in every gaming scenario, from shadows to bright scenes. The Matte Display decreases screen reflection, reducing distractions even during the most intense game sessions.
According to Samsung, it also features the world’s first DisplayPort 2.1 functionality, which transports data almost twice as fast as the previous DisplayPort 1.4 standard. Furthermore, the new DP2.1 supports industry-standard lossless Display Stream Compression (DSC) to send data without distortion.
Odyssey OLED G9: Brighter Whites, Deeper Blacks and Near Infinite Color Contrast
The Odyssey OLED G9 is the newest addition to the Odyssey lineup, with a twin quad-HD 49″ 1800R curved display and a 32:9 aspect ratio. Its quantum dot technology OLED lighting is pixel-by-pixel regulated, allowing a nearly unlimited colour contrast ratio.
The OLED panel illuminates each pixel individually rather than using a backlight, allowing for a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio while giving real RGB and true black without using colour filters.
The Odyssey OLED G9 also has a 0.1ms reaction time and a 240Hz refresh rate to reduce lagging and skipping during gameplay.
The Odyssey OLED G9 also leverages Smart Hub to access apps from partners such as Prime Video, Netflix, and YouTube, allowing users to experience a variety of over-the-top entertainment without needing a PC.
It also has Samsung Gaming Hub, an all-in-one game streaming platform that allows players to discover and play cloud-based games from partners such as Xbox and NVIDIA GeForce Now without needing a console or downloading games.
ViewFinity S9: Smart Color Calibration Designed for Creative Professionals
The ViewFinity S9 is the newest addition to Samsung’s monitor lineup. It has a 5K 27″ screen designed for creative professionals like graphic designers and photographers. Its 5,120 x 2,880 resolution, paired with its 99 per cent DCI-P3 colour gamut, gives crisp and true-to-form details, and its average Delta E 21 colour accuracy produces clear and precise colour representation, even in complex or nuanced visual contexts.
The Color Calibration Engine incorporated into the monitor assures precise screen colour and brightness, allowing users to modify white balance, Gamma, and RGB colour balance for perfect accuracy using their smartphones via the Samsung Smart Calibration app. The Matte Display reduces light reflection and glare to reduce distractions while working.
Cameras and other devices can be connected to the monitor through USB-C and Thunderbolt 4 connections, allowing users to easily transmit massive volumes of high-resolution video or other huge data sets from storage devices to their PC. The ViewFinity S9 Series includes a 4K SlimFit camera and native video conferencing via programmes like Google Meet, which are integrated into the Samsung Smart Hub.
Smart Monitor M8: Bringing Productivity, Entertainment and Personal Life Together
According to Samsung, the Smart Monitor M8 has a beautiful and slim design and is now available in a new 27″ size and the previous 32″ version, both with 4K resolution.
Users may choose the optimal angle with the height-adjustable stand with tilt support. Users can now swivel the screen 90 degrees to view large documents with minimal scrolling. It also complies with VESA mount compatibility standards, allowing you to save space and maintain a clutter-free environment.
Through the built-in SmartThings Hub, the Smart Monitor M8 can connect, control, and manage hundreds of compatible connected devices such as lights, cameras, doorbells, locks, thermostats, and more. From this year forwards, Samsung intends to broaden device options and usability by supporting Matter functionality and Home Connectivity Alliance standards.
For a new level of convenience without a remote, mouse control functionality has been introduced to many of the Smart Monitor’s over-the-top apps, including SmartThings and the Smart Hub.
Through Smart Hub, users may gain fast access to Prime Video, Netflix, YouTube, and other over-the-top services using the Smart Monitor M8. They may also quickly access the all-in-one game streaming platform, Samsung Gaming Hub.
The new My Contents feature gives users quick access to useful information. When the monitor is in standby mode and detects a registered smartphone through low-power Bluetooth, the screen displays the user’s personalised images, schedule, and other information. When the phone moves out of range, the monitor goes into standby mode.
The Smart Monitor M8’s inbuilt SlimFit camera has been improved to 2K quality and is compatible with video conferencing programmes such as Google Meet.
Furthermore, the Smart Monitor M8 is safeguarded by Samsung Knox Vault, encrypting personal data and isolating stored files and information from the device’s primary operating system to prevent attacks.
