Samsung announced the second generation Series 7 Smart Station (CB750) which is part HD LED monitor, part wireless docking station, with new mobile device integration. Android MHL-compatible smartphone users can take advantage of the Series 7 Smart Station's new Mobile High Definition Link (MHL) and enjoy content from their mobile devices directly on the much larger screen and with the benefit of rich, built-in stereo audio. Users can more easily keep an eye on their smartphone, seamlessly browse to it and even charge the device for a truly unified experience.
Expanding upon the unique auto wireless detection feature included in the original Central Station, Samsung's new Series 7 Smart Station can find a laptop equipped with the included wireless USB adapter once it is moved within a 5-foot radius of the device. It also includes a new Mobile Control feature which allows users to simultaneously connect to a tablet or smartphone, granting them complete control over their mobile device via the Series 7 Smart Station's unified hub interface and a traditional mouse and keyboard. Users can quickly and seamlessly browse between their laptop and smartphone interfaces to reply to incoming SMS messages or alerts on their mobile devices and return to more involved tasks on their laptop within seconds.
Sporting an updated, sophisticated design, the Series 7 Smart Station features smooth lines and Samsung's attention to aesthetic style with a wide-angle viewing panel and new base-mounted connection ports that reduce desktop clutter.
Featuring three USB ports (two USB 3.0 and one USB 2.0) for connecting peripherals; the Series 7 Smart Station boasts fast, versatile data transfer and device communication and the ports are aligned on the sides of the monitor's base for easy access. In addition, the Series 7 Smart Station includes an HDMI input, enabling users to connect Blu-ray players, set top boxes, or gaming devices in order to take full advantage of the 1080p LED backlit display. Users can also enjoy sound from their connected Blu-ray player or laptop through integrated speakers, or via external speakers through the audio out port.
