KUALA LUMPURMalaysia – February 1, 2016 – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., shared its vision on the role that visual displays will play in transforming entertainment, retail and meeting places of the future during the Samsung Southeast Asia Forum 2016 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


The Samsung Southeast Asia Forum today showcased a diverse line-up of new solutions that promote more immersive, comfortable and appealing content presentation. Ranging from curved and Ultra High Definition (UHD) monitors to large-format indoor displays, Samsung’s latest innovations feature state-of-the-art components and simplistic design to better captivate business and at-home audiences.



Get in the Game – Comfortably

With the release of its CF591 and CF390 monitors, Samsung has brought its pioneering curved design to the gaming arena. These 1800R curvature monitors match the shape of the human eye, offering a more comfortable and natural viewing experience.


Both the CF591 and CF390 displays are equipped with features and settings that further reduce visual fatigue and accommodate long-term gaming. Each monitor leverages Samsung’s flicker-free and Eye Saver technologies to maintain presentation consistency and protect users from eye strain. Embedded AMD FreeSync Technology Over HDMI®functionality synchronizes screen refresh rates with users’ AMD graphics card to reduce input latency, stutter and lag.


The visual display industry has also recongized Samsung’s efforts in transforming user experience through curved gaming monitors. In January 2016, UL awarded its coveted performance certification to the CF591 display, validating its exceptional color brightness and uniformity.



Productivity-Enhancing Business Monitors

Samsung’s UE590 and UE850 UHD business monitors offer enhanced visual clarity and ergonomic features to help professionals complete detail-oriented tasks. Through PLS panel technology, the exquisitely-designed UE590 and UE850 monitors enable users to view screens horizontally and vertically at angles up to 178 degrees. Combined with UHD resolution four times greater than that of standard full HD (FHD) alternatives, Samsung’s latest professional monitors deliver realistic and brilliantly-colored images. In addition, the UE590 and UE850 monitors also create a more convenient and comfortable workspace through a height-adjustable stand and multi-device connectivity.


Featuring built-in wireless charging capabilities, Samsung’s SE370 monitor takes these convenience and comfort benefits even further for professional users. The SE370’s design includes a wireless charging pad where users can repower their Qi standard compatible mobile devices while they work. These enhancements accommodate multi-taskers who simultaneously seek new ways to remove wires and cords from their desks.



A More Immersive Retail Experience

At the event, Samsung also demonstrated how retail-oriented technologies, including transparent OLED and polarized mirror displays, transform shopping into a more customized, convenient and informative experience in its “Store of the Future” exhibit.


Samsung’s new 55-inch transparent OLED signage drives engagement by offering customers clearer and more complete product visibility. These displays enhance retail demo videos and promotional content through improved brightness (150 nit), transparency (45 percent) and color presentation (Adobe RGB 100 percent, with 98 percent DCI color support). With the embedded MagicInfo content management platform, Samsung’s OLED displays accelerate content creation and deployment across single or multiple screens.


“Store of the Future” also showcased Samsung’s innovative ML55E and ML32E displays, which embed a mirror into a standard signage format. The ML55E and ML32E displays are programmed to automatically transit from promotional content to a clear mirror as customers approach. While shoppers view how a clothing item or accessory looks, businesses can share complementary messaging and expand sales potential. The displays’ new design includes high transmittance (90 percent) and reflectance (55 percent) to minimize visual distraction.



The World’s Slimmest Video Wall

With the release of Samsung’s UHF-E (Extreme Narrow Bezel) display, retail and business users can now amplify indoor message presentation and capture customer attention on the world’s slimmest video wall. The UHF-E’s thin bezel-to-bezel design (0.9mm on the upper and left sides and 0.5mm on the lower and right sides) minimizes interference and drives viewers’ attention to the featured content, rather than to the display itself.


Samsung’s UHF-E video wall aligns the power of professional-grade digital signage with the visual quality and continuity of large-scale displays. Backed by advanced factory tuning and an embedded ACM chipset, the durable UHF-E video wall maintains round-the-clock picture integrity and performance in any environmental conditions. The result is a brilliant, uniform presentation that accommodates a variety of user content without complication.



Getting on “Board” with Seamless Interactivity

Samsung’s interactive white board (IWB) technologies enhance collaboration and engagement within meeting and classroom settings. Responsive to user and pen touch, the hybrid-touch SMART Signage DME-BM IWB maintains the natural feel of traditional writing within a feature-rich digital platform. The DME-BM IWB easily connects to users’ personal devices, enabling multiple participants to share, review and modify content from a range of sources in real-time. By replacing traditional high-cost information delivery systems with the DME-BM IWB, meeting facilitators and participants can enjoy more productive discussion at a lower total cost of ownership.


Samsung is also unveiled its new DM65D slim direct-lit LED display at the event. Supported by Samsung’s SMART Signage Platform (SSSP) and a powerful Quad Core processor, the DM65D enables retail, corporate and education users to deliver robust content through a reliable LED screen. The DM65D’s compatible PC-less touch overlay transforms the display into an interactive whiteboard, fostering collaborative discussions and dynamic customer experiences.
