SEOUL, Korea – MAY 13, 2015 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., has expanded its ultra high-definition (UHD) monitor portfolio to better suit the visual display needs of both entertainment-focused consumers and detail-oriented professionals. The new UE590 and UE850 UHD monitors offer rich picture contrast and rapid response time, creating a more life-like, non-distracting visual experience that simultaneously enhances performance.
Available in 23.5- and 28-inch models, the UE590 is most applicable for high-quality entertainment seekers and avid gamers who require immersive visual detail. Alternatively, the UE850’s (23.5-, 28- and 31.5-inch models) improved resolution and dynamic connectivity drive efficiency for professional, creative and analytical tasks. Combined with ergonomic and environmentally-friendly advancements, the UE590 and UE850 monitors deliver a complete, comfortable viewing experience.
“True-to-life picture quality and image reproduction accuracy are critical to the display experience, improving functionality and productivity, and creating an immersive in-home entertainment experience,” said Seog-gi Kim, Vice President and Head of the Enterprise Business Team, Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics. “By addressing the various needs of consumers and professionals, our advanced UE590 and UE850 monitors continue the rapid transition of display technology and digital signage to a new UHD standard.”
Enhanced Visual Performance
Through the presentation of more than 8 million pixels and four-times the detail clarity of full high-definition (FHD) alternatives, the UE590 and UE850 provide the most accurate image recreation possible.
Samsung’s new monitors create a true UHD viewing experience through a host of embedded picture- and game-enhancing functions. The UE590 and UE850 are the only UHD monitors supporting AMD FreeSync technology, which synchronizes the refresh rate of the monitor to the frame rate of a user’s AMD graphic card for a smooth, responsive and tearing-free game. Response times as fast as one millisecond in the 28-inch models also allows gamers to see even the fastest on-screen action clearly and smoothly without motion blur or ghosting, while a 60 Hz refresh rate further eliminates picture choppiness and fosters a smoother, non-distracting viewing environment.
Versatile Multi-Tasking Connectivity
By offering advanced connectivity, the UHD monitors expand user functionality for greater flexibility and convenience. While both UHD monitors have integrated DisplayPort (DP) and HDMI ports, the 28- and 31.5-inch UE850 business monitors feature a Quad Interface that seamlessly connects with DP 2.1, miniDP, HDMI 2.0 and HDMI 1.4a sources. HDMI 2.0 and DP 2.1 support 4K resolution at 60Hz, which is double the maximum resolution of HDMI 1.4a (4K at 30Hz).
The UE850 also comes with four USB 3.0 ports, with two offering super-charging capability. Since the super-charging USBs enable the simultaneous charging of multiple mobile devices that is three times faster than a normal USB 2.0 port, the need for a docking station is eliminated. As a result, professionals can upload and view almost any content type while concurrently charging multiple devices.
To promote productivity, the UE590 and UE850 allow users to align on-screen content with their specific viewing needs. A Picture-by-Picture (PBP) mode ensures content can be displayed from two different input sources while maintaining picture quality. Similarly, up to 25 percent of the screen can be repositioned and resized anywhere within the screen using the Picture-in-Picture 2.0 (PiP) mode.
Display Comfort and Functionality
Improved ergonomic benefits deliver a more comfortable, enjoyable experience for UE590 and UE850 users. The UHD monitors come with VESA-supported wall mounts, and the UE850 further extends viewing capabilities through a height-adjustable stand (HAS) and tilt, pivot and swivel capabilities. Professionals can also maintain aspect ratio consistency when pivoting the UE850 business monitor with a built-in auto on-screen display (OSD) rotation function and auto magic rotation software.
Designed for extended periods of screen use, the UE590 and UE850 make the viewing experience less strenuous. Using a unique eye-saver mode, the monitors reduce the harmful effects of blue light on viewers’ eyes and associated eye strain. Similarly, the monitors’ flicker-free function protects viewers’ eyes from the constant strain of flickering screens that can be experienced with standard monitors.
The UHD monitors reinforce Samsung’s commitment to deliver high-performing technologies in a more sustainable manner. To help businesses conserve energy, resources and costs, the UE850 is constructed using 30 percent recycled plastic and a PVC-free body, while also featuring new energy-conserving technologies. The UE850’s Off Timer Plus function reduces power consumption and enables power-off scheduling, while the Smart Eco-Saving function helps reduce screen brightness for increased energy efficiency. The UE590 comes with similarly powerful Eco-Saving Plus solution.
