Samsung has launched a brand new external monitor that it says offers everything today’s hybrid workers need to be productive.
The 24-inch S4 display comes with a pop-up webcam, speaker set, microphone, and a few perks to help minimize eye strain. The monitor itself is capable of displaying Full HD (1920×1080) resolution and has a wide horizontal and vertical viewing angle of 178 degrees. It also acts as a hub, with multiple connectivity ports (HDMI, DP, D-Sub, and audio out) allowing mobile users to seamlessly connect to and from the display.
The 2.0MP FHD camera pops up and down when squeezed, allowing users to physically cover the sensor when not in use. The camera also has an infrared sensor, allowing users to not only participate in conference calls and video chats, but also sign in using Windows Hello, instead of the traditional password. The infrared sensor scans a user’s face and logs the user in in under two seconds, Samsung claims.
The monitor also comes with built-in 2W stereo speakers which the company claims provide an “enhanced audio experience when video conferencing and watching videos.”
Finally, Samsung says the monitor can help minimize eye strain that occurs when you spend too much time in front of the screen. It would come with flicker-free low blue light features, “designed to minimize harmful visual effects after long term use.” It has received both flicker-free and low blue light certificates from the international certification group TUV Rheinland.
Over the past two years, we’ve seen an explosion of remote and hybrid workers, in organizations of all shapes and sizes. However, the transition was not without challenges. Besides connectivity, having outdated hardware has been cited as a major headache by many. Most organizations, including businesses and SMEs, have increased their investments in new technologies, to help their remote workers be more productive.
“Samsung remains committed to providing customers with the solutions that meet their demands, while delivering innovation and a superior experience,” said Hyesung Ha, senior vice president of visual display business at Samsung Electronics.
“We designed this product with the new hybrid work environment in mind. With the webcam at the top of the screen, users can participate in a video conference, take an online course or attend a virtual event from the same monitor.
The monitor is now available in the United States, Europe, South Korea and Southeast Asia, according to Samsung’s website, but the price is not listed.
