Samsung Electronics on Tuesday unveiled 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 monitors can in many ways be compared to professional grade series 9 displays. In addition, Samsung SC770 Touch features touch-screen functionality.

 

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.

“We are committed to serving an expanding market of aspiring young professionals with the professional-grade monitors that match their needs. 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,” said Jung-Hwan Kim, senior vice president of the visual display business at Samsung Electronics.

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 5000:1 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.
