Samsung further flattens CDT line

Samsung has unveiled its thinnest ‘CDT’ monitor yet with the launch of its new 17-inch ultra slim display, the SyncMaster 704MS.

Samsung has unveiled its thinnest ‘CDT’ monitor yet with the launch of its new 17-inch ultra slim display, the SyncMaster 704MS.

Following hot on the heels of the firm’s CDT-based ‘Digital Slim TV’, Samsung is now hoping to trigger a wider slim trend with the release of this ultra-thin SyncMaster, which has already been launched in Korea and will now be shipped worldwide.

With this monitor, Samsung has changed the thick design of previous CDT models by adapting the slim dimensions of the LCD monitor. With its new thickness of just 358mm (compared to an average LCD’s 200mm stand width), this means the 17-inch CDT monitor can be installed in small and narrow spaces, in either home or office environments.

In addition to its compact size, the SyncMaster 704MS also includes Samsung’s antibacterial and deodorising ‘wellbeing’ function, plus ‘MagicBright’ (Samsung’s proprietary brightness setting technology), and ‘Highlight Zone’, which sets the screen brighter when it automatically senses a movie is playing.

“We expect the new release of the ultra slim CDT monitor to reaffirm Samsung Monitor’s status as a leader in display technology,” said the senior vice president of Samsung Electronics’ visual display division, HaYoon-ho.

CDT stands for Color Display Tube, a form of CRT technology.
