Samsung 590C

Samsung has just announced their new SD590C curved monitor.  Developed to provide a more immersive viewing experience, it also allows for multi-screen extension, given its super narrow bezel.  Sound is supported via integrated stereo speakers and the monitor has a specialized mode that optimizes it for gaming.

The SD590C’s curved LED screen provides users with a unique perspective ideal for viewing content ranging from multimedia to games. Through its carefully selected curvature of 4000R, the monitor has a wider field of view than flat 27-inch panels making the display seem bigger.  Because the display’s edges are physically closer to the user’s eyes and match their natural curve, users don’t need to shift focus to see the ends of the screen, which makes it ideal for anyone spending extended time in front of a computer.

High brightness (350 nit) and 3000:1 Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio add to the experience by making images and video appear even truer to life with deeper blacks, pristine whites and amazingly bright colors.  The screen provides a wide field of view for watching multimedia content from nearly anywhere in the room.  In addition, the SD590C has a 5-Watt, 2-channel dual stereo speakers built right into the curve that are designed to deliver rich, high-quality stereo sound to envelop the watcher.  

With a single click the monitor switches into Game Mode, instantly adjusting settings for optimized play. It intelligently detects changes in scenes, enhances the color, and alters the screen’s contrast to make the darks darker and the lights lighter. With Game Mode, users can see all the action at all times, even in the darkest scenes. The curved screen provide a more engaged experience.  

Game Boost also enriches sound to further boost gaming in two ways: first, the monitor’s equalizers are adjusted to make sound effects sound true to life. Second, the most important game noises (for example, car noises in a driving game, explosions in an action game, or character sounds in a role playing game) will stand out over the background music. When paired with the display enhancements above, the result is an unmatched gaming experience.

Users can connect two or even three SD590C monitors simultaneously to create a wider, gentler curve that delivers an incredible viewing experience for all games and multimedia content.  The SD590C monitor features a clean, understated look and narrow bezel that keeps users focused on the content while still standing out on their desk. The screen is elevated on a curved metallic stand with an angled neck, which makes it appear to float weightlessly. 

The SD590C will be available beginning October, 2014 at a MSRP of $429.99 U.S.  Look for more information at: www.samsung.com.
