Samsung announces the SD590C, a 27" LCD display with a curved design. The VA panel offers a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution, 178-degrees viewing angles, 4ms gray-to-gray response time, 350 nits brightness, 3000:1 contrast ratio, and 16.7 million color support. It comes with a curved T-shape stand that supports tilting. Samsung says the screen will ship on October 1, 2014 for $429.99.
Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a world leader in display technology, today announced the SD590C curved monitor. Architected as the ultimate entertainment display, it delivers a completely immersive viewing experience, while its super narrow bezel seamlessly allow for multi-screen extension. Stereo speakers built directly into the monitor's curve complete the package with high-quality surround sound, while a specialized mode optimizes the monitor for gaming with just one click.
"As a leader in the display industry, Samsung is committed to pushing the envelope on both monitor design and technology to offer consumers the best experience possible," said Ron Gazzola, vice president of marketing at Samsung Electronics America. "The SD590C represents that vision, with a curved design that was carefully engineered to draw you into the display and truly make you feel a part of the content."
Unparalleled Viewing Experience
The SD590C provides a viewing experience like no other monitor, thanks to its curved design. Samsung engineers conducted extensive research on the human eye to determine the optimal monitor curve radius, resulting in a product that is both captivating and comfortable to use.
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, drawing viewers in like no other LED, while also making the display seem bigger than 27-inches. Furthermore, since the user is absorbed in the onscreen action, peripheral visual clutter is reduced, providing a more comfortable viewing experience that is significantly easier on the eyes.
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. This component is ideal for serious gamers or office workers who spend extended hours 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. With the screen's wide field of view, you can enjoy all your multimedia content freely from nearly anywhere in the room with incredible picture quality.
Optimized for Gaming and Entertainment
The SD590C pairs its deeply immersive viewing experience with equally impressive surround sound, provided by 5-Watt, 2-channel dual stereo speakers built right into the curve. The speakers deliver rich, high-quality stereo sound that envelops users, enabling them to experience theater-level acoustics when enjoying movies and music in the comfort of their own hone.
Gaming on the SD590C is also a uniquely enveloping experience. With just one 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 makes the action more lifelike than ever, plunging users into a gaming experience so exhilarating it will keep them at the edge of their seat.
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.
Elegant and Ergonomic Design
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 elegant silhouette is enhanced by the monitor's sleek back, ensuring that it looks gorgeous from all angles.
