Samsung sets a new benchmark for high-resolution monitors with the world’s first UL-verified glare-free ‘matte display’
Samsung Electronics today announced the global launch of ViewFinity S8 (model name: S80PB), a high-resolution monitor specialized for creative professionals, including content creators, graphic designers and more. ViewFinity, a portmanteau of “View” and “Infinity” is the new name for Samsung’s range of high-resolution monitors, meaning “The Value of Infinite Viewing Experience”, demonstrating Samsung’s ambition to set a new benchmark for high-resolution monitors. resolution.
“ViewFinity is the summary of Samsung’s goal to provide the most accurate and functional monitors to businesses that need pinpoint accuracy and consistency in their work,” said Hyesung Ha, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “We are proud to offer this monitor to designers, artists and professionals who will use our technology to create new ideas and experiences that realize their full potential.”
The Samsung ViewFinity S8 is available in 32” and 27” models to deliver high performance in the most popular screen sizes. Pro-grade UHD resolution is combined with a wide color gamut of up to 98% of DCI-P3 and Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) DisplayHDR™ 6001 for greater range, accuracy and nuance. Professional factory calibration ensures that up to a billion colors are projected crystal clear on the IPS panel, ensuring vibrant color reproduction and contrast while working on the most complex visual and design projects.
In addition, Samsung ViewFinity S8 received the ‘PANTONE Validated’2 recognition in the display of PANTONE3 † meaning the models authentically reproduce over 2,000 colors as well as the newly added 110 skin tones found in the PANTONE SkinTone Guide†
As the world’s first UL4 Verified Glare-Free Monitor, Matte Display is applied to the top of the panel, reducing light reflection even when no monitor hood is used, for a distraction-free work environment. This is enhanced by the wide viewing angle that allows users to see images clearly from any angle. In addition, ViewFinity S8 received the CES 2022 Innovation Award Honoree in the Computer Peripherals & Accessories category in recognition of Samsung’s continued efforts to bring significant benefits to its customers.
Samsung has developed and applied a new material, made from recycled ocean-bound plastic, to the ViewFinity S8 to reduce marine debris and minimize its environmental footprint, while using more recycled plastics to manufacture its display products than it was in 2021. Samsung’s Eco Savings Plus Technology also reduces pixel brightness in areas of an image with black pixels for a reduction in power consumption of up to 10%. ViewFinity S8 is even TCO certified5 for its product design based on specific social and environmental responsibility requirements, as the product life cycle also contributes to the circular economy.
The ViewFinity S8 offers more functionality to create efficient workflows. It can be used as an all-in-one desktop or laptop dock for simplified home or office workstations. Users can also connect the monitor with a single USB Type-C cable for display signals, 10 Gbps data transfer, high internet speeds via an Ethernet6 connection and fast charging with up to 90 W power. The VESA-compatible design maximizes space efficiency, allowing users to adjust, tilt, swivel and pivot the monitor in the perfect ergonomic position. Furthermore, the ViewFinity S8 offers certification from TÜV Rheinland for Intelligent Eye Care, Adaptive Picture for optimal quality in any viewing environment, Eye Saver Mode and Flicker Free technology.
The ViewFinity monitors contain the newly released models and nine other products with QHD or higher resolution — 2022 models (S80PB, S61B) and 2021 models (S95UA, S80UA, S80A, S70A, S65UA, S60UA, S60A).
Samsung’s new high-resolution monitor, ViewFinity S8, will be available worldwide from the end of June, with launch schedules varying by region.
