Living Large: Samsung Introduces Crystal Clarity With New Large Format Displays

    Vivid detail and vibrant colour provides ultimate high-definition
    viewing experience

    MISSISSAUGA, ON, Sept. 16 /CNW/ - Seeing is believing with the
introduction of Samsung Electronics Canada's new large format displays (LFDs).
From arenas to malls, from hotels to airports, Samsung has raised the bar in
digital signage by providing the ultimate in high-definition viewing
    The three new available LFD models - the UX, CX and MX series - offer
extraordinary brightness, resolution and detail to viewers - perfect for
businesses or retailers wanting to provide an eye-stopping display.
    "The way people are receiving information today has changed," says Ron
Hulse, Vice President, IT Marketing, Samsung Electronics Canada. "We live in a
faster-paced, busier society where we're all on the go - as a result, the way
we receive information has to reflect this new norm. Samsung's new digital
displays provide crystal clear, high-definition detail that can be viewed in a
variety of external environments."
    The ultra-slim design of the UX(N) series displays makes it the best
solution for a multi-video wall option in its class. Designed with performance
in mind, the UX(N) series is built with the Samsung DID panel and its unique
DNLe technology, allowing it to produce crisp, clear images under any lighting
condition. With built-in multi-screen network solutions, the 400/460UXN series
is the perfect display solution for exhibition halls, sports venues or
shopping malls. Samsung's MagicInfo software allows users to transmit a
specific display to a number of screens by requiring only one PC on a network.
This unique feature eliminates the need for a dedicated PC for each individual
    A night at the pub is enhanced by the CX(N) series displays. Watching the
latest sports game in crisp high definition on a 40" or 46" screen provides
the ultimate in entertainment for the viewer. The CX(N) series offers
multifunction features such as a built-in TV tuner with speakers as well as
high dynamic contrast of 40,000:1, all in a sleek, high-gloss black bezel
    When real-time, streaming, to-the-moment information is required, the
MX(N) display series is the obvious choice. The financial sector and other
industries that rely on the most current information will appreciate the
features offered by this 32" to 46" LFD series. The MX(N) series includes
40,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 8ms response time and CVBS/HDMI video inputs.
Multi Display Control software allows for enhanced flexibility and information
sharing by the user.
    "The information age is here and consumers have come to expect digital
technology as the conduit for receiving up-to-date, real time details. As
well, our hectic schedules require the availability of both news and
entertainment in a format that suits our 'on-the-go' lifestyles. Samsung's
latest lineup of large format displays are the perfect solution and the
obvious choice for the digital age of today," says Hulse.
    The new Samsung LFDs range from $999 to $3,499 and will be available in
September, 2008 from Samsung resellers.
