Samsung Electronics today unveiled its latest curved monitor, the SE790C.

The display is aimed at users with a penchant for multi-media entertainment and multi-tasking. The 34-inch curved design uses ultra-wide quad high-definition (ULTRA-WQHD) resolution and an enhanced contrast ratio. 

"The SE790C has already been voted the world's best monitor by picture quality institutes around the world and offers a viewing experience which is truly unique" claimed Manoj Ghai, head, IT Sales Group, Samsung Gulf Electronics.

"Curved is not just a trend, it is a natural progression of advanced technology and enhanced comfort for users. Pushing the limits of what display solutions can deliver, we expect this model to be well received by consumers in the Middle East region who are seeking the very best in terms of functionality and quality."

According to Samsung, the 3000R (curvature radius of 3,000mm) design of the SE790C has been optimised to "match the natural curve of the human eye", providing a "noticeably different" viewing experience from competing curved-screen models and flat-display offerings. It also features a 21:9 aspect ratio and ULTRA-WQHD resolution of 3,440 by 1,440 pixels.

The contrast ratio of 3,000:1 and 300 cd/m2 "typical" brightness is complemented by dynamic lighting and shading for pictures with deeper blacks, vivid colours and sharper detail. The viewing angle stands at 178 degrees horizontally and vertically, and is meant to "optimise the viewing experience from any position and minimise picture distortion".

"Unlike flat screen monitors where the viewing distance differs from the centre of the screen to the edges, the screen edges of the SE790C more closely match the natural curve of a viewer's eyes," Samsung said in a statement. "As a result, the SE790C creates a distortion-free viewing experience with less eye strain and enhanced comfort for the viewer."
