Samsung Announces a New Lineup of Advanced LCD and Plasma Monitor Display Solutions Tailored to the Pro A/V and Corporate Communities
New 40" and 46" LCD displays and 42" and 50" plasma displays Samsung has announced a new lineup of advanced LCD monitor display solutions tailored to the Pro A/V and corporate communities, and unveiled three new additions to its family of high-end plasma displays. Samsung's latest family of LCDs include the network enabled 46-inch SyncMaster 460pn ($8,949 estimated street price) and the 40-inch SyncMaster 400pn ($6,749), as well as the new large-screen 46-inch SyncMaster 460p ($8,159) and 40-inch SyncMaster 400p ($5,959). The new plasma lineup includes the 42" high-definition PPM42M5H, the 42" standard-definition PPM42M5S, and the 50" PPM50M5H. All new LCD and Plasma monitors will be on display at InfoComm 2005 at Samsung's booth #2318. The SyncMaster 460pn and 460p are currently shipping, and the SyncMaster 400pn and 400p will be shipping by the end of June. Pricing and availability dates for the Plasma monitors have not yet been determined.
Samsung's latest large-screen LCD monitors are specifically designed for use in commercial and corporate applications. Samsung's SyncMaster 460pn and SyncMaster 400pn offer an Ethernet connection and Samsung's MagicNet technology, which allows users to send content to any MagicNet display on a network from a server. MagicNet allows users to show different content on different displays at different times, and schedule content up to a month in advance. At InfoComm 2005, Samsung will also be unveiling its SyncMaster 460p and SyncMaster 400p, offering the same high-end display technologies without the MagicNet enhancements, for those without network-related applications.
Samsung's new high-end plasma monitors offer a 10,000:1 contrast ratio and 1,100cd/m2 brightness level. In order to achieve this super-high 10,000:1 contrast ratio, Samsung has developed an exclusive octal plasma pixel structure that increases the electrical separation between the pixels. This reduces the tendency for one pixel to influence the adjacent pixel, which increases the contrast. Samsung has also chosen a high-Xenon gas, which is up to 50% more efficient in generating brightness.
The 42" PPM42M5H features a 1024x768 resolution and is true high-definition by matching the 720p HDTV format without the need for processing. The standard-definition 42" PPM42M5S is a more economical display solution incorporating a 852 x 480 resolution. The 50" PPM50M5H sports a 1366x768 resolution.
Samsung's new lineup of plasma displays offer advanced Anti-Burn Technologies including Auto Pixel Shift that keeps the images moving imperceptibly and Samsung's Always White technology combines with its Signal Pattern Process to eliminate electrically charged residual images. Each display device includes inputs for composite video, component video that offers 480i/p, 720p, and 1080i viewing, S-Video for gaming applications, DVI for digital video sources, and an RGB input for use with a PC.
