Samsung Product Highlights at the Booth
Intelligent 8K Digital Signage
The new Samsung QLED 8K Signage pairs the market’s highest resolution display with Artificial Intelligence (AI) upscaling technology to produce lifelike images and allow users to enjoy immersive viewing experiences. The AI upscaling technology in the commercial displays captures the attention of customers including store owners and advertisers. The new slim design at less than 40mm deep provides hassle-free installation and with Samsung’s advanced optical technology, the screen blends into nearly any environment. With a resolution of 7,680 x 4,320 pixels, individual pixels in an image become imperceptible to the human eye. The QLED 8K display delivers enhanced color presentation through local dimming and Quantum Light Control as well as features HDR10+ along with 4,000nit peak brightness.
LED Displays for Commercial Settings
The IF Series with fine pixel pitch in P1.2 leverages LED HDR scene adaptation technology to showcase a detailed, realistic picture and the screens reach peak brightness levels nearly two times higher than standard LED maximum brightness norms. Often, conventional LED displays struggle to present red, green and blue color hues accurately and without distortion in low grayscale settings. Through unique grayscale management, the IF Series displays surmounts these challenges with algorithms that maintain consistent R/G/B gradation for improved color accuracy. As a result, indoor environments with low light levels, such as galleries, museums and shops, can display content at optimal quality with uniform and precise color expression.
Collaborative Workplace Solutions
Samsung displays and solutions designed for workplace collaboration offer extensive connectivity and advanced functionality. The Samsung Flip is a versatile and portable digital flipchart that enhances today’s fast-paced, digital-centric workflow. The 55-inch UHD display supports up to four simultaneous writers so teams can work together with ease. It drives greater collaboration, expands presentation capabilities and is ideal for all types of meetings, from training to group brainstorming.
Stand Alone Displays for Business
The Samsung BEN series, a commercial display featuring a modern slim-edge design, is virtually bezel-less on three sides making it an ideal solution for boardroom, conference room and meeting room applications. The BEN series helps give any space a contemporary look while offering versatile connectivity options plus a built-in tuner, embedded connectivity and speakers for convenient functionality.
Monitors for Productivity and Efficiency
The Samsung Space Monitor leverages its sleek design and functionality to allow users to focus on what is on the screen rather than what is around it. Its unique built-in space saving solution includes a fully-integrated clamp stand that grips to the desk to allow the monitor to tilt back and forth, freeing up space for optimal user productivity. Beyond aesthetics, the Space Monitor is a feature-rich, high-performance monitor. The 27-inch model offers QHD resolution for incredibly detailed, sharp images, while the 32-inch model presents content in 4K UHD. In addition, the Samsung C49HG90 49-inch ultra-curved and ultra-wide business desktop monitor is on display, featuring Quantum dot technology and screen real estate designed for performance-seeking professionals.
Data Storage and Memory Solutions

With Samsung’s ultra-high performance and high-density SSD and memory card portfolio, production professionals and content creators experience greater efficiency with blazing-fast read and write speeds and increased capacity for high-resolution photography and 4K video recording.
