Versatile and affordable ‘do-it-all’ screen offers flexibility for work, learning and entertainment at home

Samsung Electronics recently announced the global availability of its all-new Smart Monitor, an innovative, do-it-all screen that brings together a suite of features for work, learning and entertainment, all in a single display.

 

 

Designed to meet the new needs of today’s consumers, who are now working, learning and consuming entertainment at home, Samsung Smart Monitor incorporates powerful mobile and PC connectivity, remote home office and learning features as well as Smart Hub, a comprehensive entertainment hub that is similar to Samsung’s built-in Smart TV platform.

 

“The new Smart Monitor showcases Samsung’s continued commitment to industry-leading innovation in technology that understands and supports the lifestyles of our customers,” said Pat Bugos, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Home Entertainment, Samsung Electronics Canada. “Our new Smart Monitor has been designed to meet the demand for technology that serves the new normal for many Canadians as entertainment, work and education increasingly take place at-home. The Smart Monitor offers a one-screen solution to customers, bringing their display and entertainment needs together into one hub.”

 

The new Samsung Smart Monitor provides numerous connectivity options for both PCs and smartphones. Users can connect their personal mobile devices with just a simple tap using Tap View[1], App Casting or Apple AirPlay 2. For a complete desktop experience using a mobile device, users can also connect to the monitor with Samsung DeX.

 

 

For home office and learning, the display operates Microsoft Office 365 applications[2] without a PC connection thanks to embedded Wi-Fi, allowing users to view, edit and save documents in the cloud directly from the monitor. Remote Access also allows users wirelessly and remotely access files from a PC or view content from a laptop, whether it is situated in the house or at the office. The USB Type-C port[3] allows for data, display and power — up to 65W — with just a single connection, keeping the area around the monitor clean and beautiful. Multiple USB ports and Bluetooth 4.2 allow for additional connection versatility while the display has a built-in two channel speaker.

 

When work is done, the display also operates as a complete entertainment hub with the ability to stream content with Samsung’s Smart Hub. The monitor’s app store allows users to stream their favourite content[4] even without a connection to a PC or mobile device. Content can easily be accessed with the supplied remote control which includes streaming service hot keys. The display can also be controlled by voice thanks to Bixby integration.

 

 

The Smart Monitor also features technology designed to make viewing more comfortable. Adaptive Picture optimizes picture quality for any viewing environment by automatically adjusting brightness and colour temperature in response to room conditions. This ensures the most comfortable viewing experience in any environment, reducing eye strain even after extended use. The monitor also features a special eye-saver mode to reduce blue light.

 

The monitor is available in two models at launch. The M7 supports Ultra-High Definition (UHD) resolution in 32-inch while the M5 supports Full HD (FHD) resolution in 32-inch and 27-inch options.

 

The Samsung Smart Monitor will be available in late November in Canada. For more information, please visit: https://www.samsung.com/ca/monitors/.
