Unparalleled color accuracy achieved through meticulous
factory calibration

Samsung’s professional UD970 monitor is meticulously and individually calibrated right at the factory, ensuring uniform color across the whole screen, and precise grayscale color gradation that is so much smoother than monitors that only undergo a simple software calibration. And with an embedded calibration chipset developed exclusively by Samsung and a 16-bit look-up table (LUT), you get more accurate colors across the entire screen, taking color precision above and beyond other advanced monitors.

Incredibly uniform color presentation across the entire screen

Every UD970 is individually calibrated for uniformity correction by splitting the display into 25 sections, and then adjusting the brightness of individual sections uniformly with the calibrator. This results in center and peripheral areas that maintain an amazing calibration accuracy of △E<3. Samsung’s advanced hardware calibration chipset and precise tuning brings the uniformity up from 75% to 90%, delivering near-perfect uniformity values across the entire screen.

Color details and clarity in every shade of gray

From the purest whites to the deepest blacks, the grayscale of the UD970 has been finely divided into 256 levels. Then, with an accuracy of △E<1, the UD970 is carefully and precisely calibrated from level to level using Gamma Curve and Gray Scale Correction. This ensures color clarity in even the finest shade of gray, so you get lifelike pictures with just the right amount of light, shade and color to express every detail.

White balance correction produces accurate
and stunning images

Creating true-to-life images also depends on being able to fine-tune the color temperature. Thanks to White Balance Correction and built-in calibration technology with an accuracy of △E<1, the UD970 knows the exact white balance needed and expertly corrects the temperature. It makes adjustments within a range of 4,000K to 10,000K degrees, finely tuning the color temperature in precisely measured increments of 100K, giving you perfect white balance with the rich colors and vivid clarity your work demands

Vibrant colors with near-perfect Adobe RGB coverage
and true 10-bit input

Samsung-developed BLU technology supports 99% of the Adobe RGB color space, based on the CIE 1931 standard. With almost full coverage of the RGB spectrum, you get incredibly accurate color with minimized color disparity when printing, meaning the colors you see on the screen will be practically identical to the ones actually printed. And using the 10-bit supported panel, 10-bit input signals are transmitted and processed through a 16-bit LUT, enabling an amazing 1.07 billion colors to be represented.

Easy-to-use color management software for your custom needs

The precise, factory-tuned colors delivered by the UD970 are just the beginning of an incredibly professional experience. You can also adjust color modes and profiles to suit your specifications with easy-to-use, self-calibration software called Natural Color Expert. Using the software wizard, you can easily make adjustments to bring out the precise colors that true professionals need.
