Samsung is setting a new benchmark for high-resolution monitors with the world’s first UL-certified glare-free “matte screen”.
London, United Kingdom – June 20, 2022 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced the global launch of ViewFinity S8 (Model Name: S80PB), a specialized high-resolution monitor for creative professionals including content creators, graphic designers and many others. ViewFinity, a portmanteau of “View” and “Infinity” is the new name for Samsung’s line of high-resolution monitors, meaning “The Value of Infinite Viewing Experience”, and shows Samsung’s ambition to establish a new benchmark for high resolution monitors.
“ViewFinity is the synthesis of Samsung’s goal to provide the most accurate and functional monitors to businesses that need precision and consistency throughout their work,” said Hyesung Ha, vice -Executive 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. Professional-grade UHD resolution is paired with a wide color gamut of up to 98% DCI-P3 and Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) DisplayHDR™ 600 for more range, precision and nuance. Professional factory calibration ensures up to a billion colors are projected with crystal clarity on the IPS panel, creating vibrant color reproduction and contrast while working on the most complex visual and design projects .
Additionally, the Samsung ViewFinity S8 has received ‘PANTONE Validated’ recognition in the PANTONE display – meaning the models authentically reproduce over 2,000 colors as well as the newly added 110 skin tone shades that can be found in the PANTONE Skin tone guide.
As the world’s first UL Glare-free monitor verified, screen matte is applied to the top of the panel, reducing light reflection even when not using a monitor hood to provide a distraction-free work environment. This is enhanced by the wide viewing angle allowing users to see images clearly from any angle. Additionally, ViewFinity S8 won the CES 2022 Innovation Award Honoree in the Computer Peripherals & Accessories category in recognition of Samsung’s continuous efforts to deliver tremendous benefits to its customers.
Samsung has developed and applied a new material, made with ocean-related recycled plastics, to the ViewFinity S8 to reduce marine litter and minimize environmental footprint while using more recycled plastics to produce its display products than in 2021. Samsung’s Eco Savings Plus technology also reduces pixel brightness in sections of an image with black pixels for up to a 10% reduction in power consumption. In fact, ViewFinity S8 is TCO certified for the design of its products according to specific requirements in terms of social and environmental responsibility, because its product life cycle also contributes to the circular economy.
The ViewFinity S8 offers increased functionality to create efficient workflows. It can be used as an all-in-one desktop or laptop docking station for streamlined home or office workstations. Additionally, users can connect the monitor with a single USB Type-C cable enabling display signals, 10Gbps data transfers, fast internet speeds over an Ethernet connection and fast charging with up to 90W of power. The VESA-compatible design maximizes space efficiency, allowing users to adjust, tilt, swivel, and swivel the monitor to the perfect ergonomic position. Additionally, the ViewFinity S8 offers TÜV Rheinland certification for Intelligent Eye Care, Adaptive Picture for optimized quality in any viewing environment, Eye Saver Mode, and Flicker Free technology.
ViewFinity monitors include new 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.
