Samsung Unveils 22-Inch, 120Hz 3D- Monitor Compatible with NVIDIA’s GeForce 3D Vision
Samsung Electronics America Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, the number one worldwide brand of LCD monitors, announced the addition of their first 3D monitor to its award winning product line. The Samsung 2233RZ, which is compatible with NVIDIA’s new GeForce 3D Vision graphics card, will be available for purchase in April 2009 and carries an MSRP of $349.
“More users are enjoying higher performance games and movies using high-performance graphic boards,” said R.A. Atanus, Vice President of Product Marketing at Samsung Electronics’ Information Technology Division. “As entertainment content becomes more available, the need for hardware technology to maintain increasing volumes of software content becomes more important. Combining this new 3D technology with Samsung’s LCD monitor creates an optimal viewing tool — for uses ranging from teaching and using 3D modeling to playing the latest video games.”
The Samsung 2233RZ monitor boasts the refined, streamlined and unique design, in addition to its top-class performance, that consumers have come to expect from Samsung products. The display is housed in a thin, glossy black bezel that is a stylish accent to any environment. It provides a compelling 3D experience with incredible picture quality, and users can now set up a shortcut key to easily shuttle between 2D and 3D.
With the environment in mind, Samsung built in an off timer function for energy-saving benefits, enabling the monitor to shutdown at set times. Unlike many other widescreen monitors, the Samsung 2233RZ displays 5:4 and 4:3 images at accurate aspect ratios without enlargement or distortion.
The 3D Stereoscopic Experience
The 2233RZ, in conjunction with NVIDIA’s advanced software, automatically converts over 350 games to stereoscopic 3D without the need for special game patches. High-tech active shutter glasses, designed with top-of-the-line optics, deliver double the resolution per eye and ultra-wide viewing angles than passive glasses. In addition, the new pure 120Hz LCD monitors unlock crystal-clear, flicker-free stereoscopic 3D gaming that provides 60Hz per eye.
The 3D glasses are designed so that users can simultaneously wear prescription glasses comfortably. This ensures that users with corrective eyewear can view fully-immersive stereoscopic 3D. In addition, adjustable nose pieces are included to ensure a custom fit for each user. The 3D glasses are easily powered over a standard USB cable and can last an entire week without a recharge, which helps to minimize battery replacement. The monitor’s intelligent circuit design enables automatic shutdown after 10 minutes when not in use in order to preserve battery life.
