Samsung is showing off a new 22" SyncMaster 2263DX LCD display at CES 2008 that features an additional 7" display.
Featuring a tandem seven-inch monitor connected to the primary display, the 2263DX monitor facilitates simple connectivity without the cost of an extra monitor. Facilitating a multi-screen environment, the 2263DX monitor is ideal for users that require multiple screens to run programs and applications simultaneously, therefore increasing productivity. For example, the extra screen enables users to create and edit documents on the 22-inch screen while using the additional screen to simultaneously instant message, read emails or video conference with co-workers around the globe. Furthermore, the 7-inch tandem screen is attached via a pivoting, swiveling arm, allowing it to be positioned on either side or above the main display for a comfortable, highly customizable work environment.
Leveraging Samsung’s proprietary UbiSync technology, the 2263DX delivers simple plug-and-play USB 2.0 connectivity, allowing for effortless dual-screen configuration. The 2263DX monitor’s USB connectivity also allows the monitor to provide USB hub functionality, facilitating simple communication and connectivity. Furthermore, the display features HDMI input, providing for superior image quality and next-generation audiovisual input.
The 2263DX monitor is optimized for Microsoft’s Office Communicator 2007, enabling users to communicate with colleagues around the world without needing to pick up a phone, put on a headset or lean into a microphone. The monitor is an ideal choice for true-to-life web conferencing, which can reduce long-distance phone costs and the need for frequent business travel, as the monitor is equipped with a built-in 2.0M pixel high-resolution webcam, dual-array microphone and speakers.
"With a 7-inch screen working in conjunction with a 22-inch high-performance display, the 2263DX is an outstanding solution for the increasing body of consumers looking for a multiple-monitor work environment to increase productivity, facilitate seamless communication and stay aware of business-critical news and events," said Young Bae, senior product manager, display group, Samsung Electronics America, Inc. “This intuitive, easy-to-use monitor is a perfect compromise for consumers seeking to combine heightened multitasking abilities and increased efficiency and productivity, while not sacrificing image quality and response time.
With a wide 160/160 viewing angle and a high 1680 x 1050 resolution on the 22-inch screen and a resolution of 800x480 on the tandem screen, the SyncMaster 2263DX provides clear image quality and maximum versatility. Additionally, this innovative display features Samsung’s MagicBrite3 technology, as well as an 8,000:1 contrast ratio complemented by a 5 ms response time, enhancing the user’s total viewing experience and reducing blurring or ghosting while utilizing multimedia applications.
The SyncMaster 2263DX monitor is available for $549.99.
