The new display features a wide aspect ratio and immersive design.
Samsung has revealed its latest monitor. The SE790C is said to be the company's most advanced curved-screen monitor and is geared toward delivering an enveloping and comfortable viewing experience.
"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 SE790C uses a 34-inch 21:9 LCD panel with an Ultra-WQHD resolution of 3,440 by 1,440, a 3,000:1 contrast ratio, 300 cd/m2 typical brightness, and a 178 degree viewing angle. In addition, the screen features a curved-design with a 3,000mm curvature radius. According to Samsung, this sets the display apart from traditional flat-screen and competing curved-screen models, and allows the monitor to create a distortion-free viewing experience that creates less eye strain. To back up these claims, the SE790C has been certified by TÜV Rheinland, who evaluated the display's color presentation, color uniformity, viewing angle, and curved space and flicker-free operation.
Pricing and availability for the SE790C have not been announced yet.
