Who says TV’s have to be flat?! Samsung is throwing buyers for a curve (literally!) with their new curved monitor.
The Full HD Curved Monitor is designed to enhance visually compelling entertainment content. The advanced display creates a more immersive viewing experience through its curved design and innovative features.
Curved screens provide a more immersive viewing experience, making you feel like you're watching a TV with a screen larger than it actually is. The curve adds a cinematic aspect, like watching a movie in a theater. Proponents of curved screens also say they can improve contrast by focusing the light coming from the screen more directly at viewers, and that the curve helps to improve the viewing angle for those watching the sets from an angle.
Dan Schinasi, senior manager of TV Product Planning at Samsung, said curved-TV technology offers users a wider field of view. The design of Samsung's curved TVs creates a "panoramic effect... making the display seem even bigger than it is." The curved design, Schinasi said, also creates a balanced and uniform view. This curvature matches the natural curve of the human eye and makes it easy for the viewer to completely immerse themselves in games and movies. When you watch a perfectly flat TV screen, the corners of the screen are farther away than the center so they appear smaller.
Additionally, the screen’s curvature creates a wider field of view and greater sense of depth, which enables viewers to enjoy a panoramic view and gives the screen a 3D-like effect. The 3D effect is particularly apparent when enjoying first-person perspective video games. The integration of enhanced entertainment features takes gaming and multimedia content experience to the next level. The monitor comes fully equipped with built-in 5-watt dual speakers that deliver high-quality stereo sound as well as a game mode function that can be quickly activated with a simple touch of a button. The game mode intelligently detects on-screen changes and corrects blurry images, enhances colors and alters contrast for improved visibility of in-game action.
The monitor has a clean and minimalist look, ensuring viewers enjoy the enhanced viewing experience of the curved screen without any distraction. Its sophisticated design makes pictures seemingly float in mid-air, captivating the viewer instantly. Users can also easily adjust the screen angle using the tilt screen function to minimize glare and reflection.
