Samsung Introduces Ultra High Definition Monitor with Stunningly Realistic Picture Quality, Advanced Multitasking Functionality and Sleek Design

New UD590 monitor available for pre-order today; additional consumer monitors released later this spring

RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. — Samsung Electronics America, Inc. today announced the launch of the UD590 monitor, featuring Samsung’s revolutionary UHD 4K display technology. The monitor’s stunning screen offers the ultimate viewing experience for photo enthusiasts and visual professionals, such as graphic designers, architects and more.

“Samsung is a worldwide leader in display technology renowned for our UHD 4K TVs. The UD590 brings that UHD 4K technology to our monitor line up, offering unparalleled imagery right at your desk,” said Ron Gazzola, Vice President of Consumer IT Marketing at Samsung Electronics America. “It offers a viewing experience unlike any other, perfect for consumers looking to enjoy premium display quality in their homes. We’re also introducing several other consumer monitors this year to offer a wide range of high performing options to meet the needs of any user.”

Discover Richly Detailed, Stunningly Realistic UHD Picture Quality
The UD590 monitor offers four times the resolution and pixels of Full HD displays (3840×2160). The 28- inch screen has eight million pixels to create the clearest and most detailed picture ever. Furthermore, the monitor includes a UHD upscale feature, which converts low resolution content to UHD level picture quality, resulting in a stunning, unmatched viewing experience.

The UD590 supports one billion colors, which is 64 times more colors than offered by conventional monitors, displaying images in lifelike quality. With one millisecond response time, users can enjoy smooth video playback of even the fastest moving action scenes.

Experience Best-in-Class Response Times
The Samsung UD590 monitor can handle all of the excitement of action movies, games and sports smoothly, thanks to a rapid one-millisecond response time. Viewers can enjoy even the fastest on-screen motion clearly without any motion blur, judder or ghosting. There’s no lag during gaming and all the details appear in sharp UHD clarity, so it won’t let players down at crucial moments.

Benefit from Advanced Multitasking with Premium Picture-in-Picture Feature
The UD590 features innovative multitasking features that meet the needs of today’s busy consumers, who are often working across multiple windows and programs. Samsung’s Picture-in-Picture 2.0 offers picture-in-picture windows for easy multitasking and the ability to adjust resolution, screen position and sound as desired. Through the feature, users can watch videos that maintain 100 percent of the source resolution. Whether it’s Full HD, 720p or 480p, Picture-in-Picture 2.0 doesn’t downscale content and maintains the original resolution, resulting in picture-in-picture visuals that are as clear and crisp as they’d be on their own.

The UD590 also allows users to connect two PCs at once and enjoy each at native resolution at the same time. This enables team members to effortlessly collaborate on the same screen, side by side.

Enjoy a Minimalist Design that Puts Immersive Viewing at the Forefront
A beautiful UHD picture should be the center of attention, and Samsung’s sophisticated minimalist design makes sure that it is. Incorporating Samsung’s premium design identity, the UD590 features a metallic finish that stands out in any home or office. With clean lines and a modern look, the sleek monitor is constructed from high-quality metal materials and has an understated T-shape stand designed to take up less space, making the picture even more prominent. The tilt function lets users adjust the monitor to the most comfortable viewing level, while sharper viewing angles allow users to experience the gorgeous UHD 4K display from anywhere in the room.

Range of New Consumer Monitors
In addition to the UD590, Samsung is rolling out a full line of consumer monitors beginning in spring 2014, including the SD590 and SD390 products. Available in 23.6 and 27-inch models, these new monitors feature Samsung’s PLS panels, which enable users to enjoy wide viewing angles and higher brightness. The monitors’ Full HD (1920×1080) resolution is perfect for enjoying content in a living room or home office. Both the SD590 and SD390 feature super narrow bezels and stunning designs that will make a statement in any home.

The UD590 monitor is available for pre-order now for an MSRP of $699.99. The SD590 and SD390 will be available in April 2014 for MSRPs starting at $249.99.
