Samsung Reveal The Space Monitor, plus CRG9 and UR59C Monitors Ahead of CES 2019
Monitoring The Situation
Samsung has announced three new monitors which provide the latest features and design aesthetics for your window to the world.The trio in question are the modern and minimalist Space Monitor, the CRG9 designed for an unparalleled gaming experience and the UR59C, a stunning 4K UHD curved monitor ideal for content creators. Each monitor offers the best of new technology, ranging from ultra-wide screens and lifelike colours for immersive gaming to space-saving designs to increase productivity, according to Samsung.
The Samsung Space Monitor leverages its sleek design and functionality to allow users to focus on what’s on the screen and not what’s around it. Its unique built-in space-saving solution, a minimalist fully-integrated arm, clamps to the desk and frees up desk space for ultimate user productivity. The Space Monitor is easy to set up and adjust when you aren’t using it, and simple to push back and store flat against the wall. Through easy ergonomic adjustment, port access and a discreet cable management system, the Samsung Space Monitor improves the form and function of any workstation or home office.
Space Monitor gives users a unique arm stand, which can disappear into the back of the monitor’s slim-bezel. When using the stand, Space Monitor can be easily tilted or extended from the wall. It can also be lowered to the desk surface, and Samsung’s Zero Height Adjustable Stand feature provides the ultimate versatility for any type of viewing preference. The stand not only makes viewing more comfortable, but also eliminates the hassle of cable management by integrating power and HDMI cords through the arm for a clean, flexible look.
Beyond aesthetics, Space Monitor is a feature-rich, high-performance monitor. The 27-inch model offers WQHD resolution for incredibly detailed, pin-sharp images, while the 32-inch model presents content in 4K UHD.
While Samsung are championing the CRG9 as the world’s first high-resolution, super ultra-wide gaming monitor with 32:9 aspect ratio, LG will also be bringing something similar to the CES party. However, their 49” super ultra-wide monitor, the 49WL95, is pitched at productivity rather than gaming. Clearly, both screen giants feel there is a market for these monster screens but they differ on which one it is. The CRG9 offers a 120Hz refresh rate with a fast 4ms response time on a 49-inch display that minimizes image lag and motion blur to effortlessly keep up with fast-paced games. Built for a superior gaming experience, the monitor also features AMD Radeon FreeSync™ 2 HDR technology to reduce stutter, screen tearing and input latency to ensure the best possible frame rate and smoothest gaming experience.
Samsung claims that content truly comes alive on the CRG9, with dual WQHD resolution (5120×1440) and HDR10 with a peak brightness of 1,000 nits and local dimming providing superfine detail in the brightest and the darkest parts of an image. Alongside this, Samsung’s Quantum Dot technology provides an exceptionally wide range of accurate colour representation for life-like picture quality. The high-contrast HDR offers advanced specular highlights not available in non-HDR monitors and the 1800R screen curvature gives the user an ultra-wide field of view for complete visibility.
Equivalent to two 27-inch WQHD 16:9 monitors placed side-by-side, the 32:9 super ultra-wide screen also provides ultimate multitasking flexibility assisted by PBP (Picture-by-Picture) functionality to allow two video sources to be viewed on the same screen. The CRG9 includes one HDMI port, two Display Ports, USB 3.0 and headphone connectivity options and is designed with a smaller stand size for convenience and flexibility in every gamer’s space.
Finally, the UR59C 32” monitor is the world’s first 32-inch curved 4K UHD designed for content creators who seek both versatility and performance, It features a UHD curved display with a 2,500:1 contrast ratio and a full 3840×2160 4K UHD resolution with support for up to one billion colours. The 1500R curvature delivers a truly immersive experience optimized for creating content and art, watching videos or gaming while reducing the eye strain typically associated with long periods of traditional monitor use.
Available in Dark Blue Grey, the UR59C has a super-slim design, with a depth of only 6.7mm with a fabric-textured rear casing. Its 3-sided bezel-less screen is attached to a slender yet sturdy V-slim metal stand with two-prong base that encases cables and reduces its footprint on the workspace.
Samsung seem to be following a function dictating form approach here. We’ll monitor the situation (ahem) and let you know how that pans out if we get a hands-on display at CES.
