Mike Sanders / 12 months ago
Samsung has announced the global launch of ViewFinity S8, a high-resolution monitor specialised for creative professionals including content creators, graphic designers and more. ViewFinity, a portmanteau of “View” and “Infinity” is the new name for Samsung’s high-resolution monitor lineup, meaning ‘The Value of Infinite Viewing Experience’, and showcases Samsung’s ambition to establish a new benchmark for high-resolution monitors.
Samsung ViewFinity S8 UHD 4K Monitor
The Samsung ViewFinity S8 is available in 32″ and 27″ models to give high performance in the most popular screen sizes. Pro-grade UHD resolution is combined with a wide colour gamut up to 98% of DCI-P3 and Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) DisplayHDR 600 for more range, accuracy and nuance. Professional factory calibration ensures up to one billion colours are projected in crystal clarity on the IPS panel, which creates vibrant colour reproduction and contrast while working on the most complex visual and design projects.
Moreover, Samsung ViewFinity S8 received the ‘PANTONE Validated’ recognition in the display from PANTONE — meaning the models authentically reproduce more than 2,000 colours as well as the newly added 110 skin tone shades which can be found in the PANTONE SkinTone Guide.
As the world’s first UL verified Glare-Free monitor, Matte Display is applied on the top of the panel, reducing light reflection even when not using a monitor hood to provide a distraction-free working environment. This is enhanced by the wide viewing angle allowing users to see images clearly from any angle. Plus, ViewFinity S8 earned the CES 2022 Innovation Award Honoree in the Computer Peripherals & Accessories category in recognition of Samsung’s ongoing efforts to deliver considerable benefits to its customers.
Samsung has developed and applied a new material, made with repurposed ocean-bound plastics, to the ViewFinity S8 to reduce marine waste and minimise the environmental footprint while using more recycled plastics to produce its display products than it did 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 its product design based on specific social and environmental responsibility requirements, as its product lifecycle 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 dock for desktops or laptops for simplified workstations at home or the office. Also, users can connect the monitor with a single USB Type-C cable enabling display signals, 10 Gbps data transfers, fast internet speeds via an Ethernet connection and fast charging with up to 90 W power. The VESA-compatible design maximises space efficiency, allowing users to adjust, tilt, swivel and pivot the monitor into the perfect ergonomic position. Furthermore, the ViewFinity S8 offers certification from TÜV Rheinland for Intelligent Eye Care, Adaptive Picture for optimised quality in any viewing environment, Eye Saver Mode and Flicker-Free technology.
