Samsung Introduces Trio of Monitors with Multimedia Capabilities

Samsung Electronics America has introduced a new series of 19 and 22-inch LCD monitors, each with built-in speakers, to its line of SyncMaster displays. The SyncMaster 920BM 19-inch monitor and the SyncMaster 920WM and 2220WM widescreen monitors were designed for both commercial users and consumers seeking enhanced multimedia capabilities.

All three monitors feature built-in multimedia speakers, allowing end-users to seamlessly participate in teleconferences or listen to videos and audio presentations without the need to incur the cost of acquiring separate speakers. The built-in speakers also prove to be an attractive option for consumers looking for a compact solution for listening to music or watching movies on their computer monitor.

The monitors feature Samsung's proprietary Magic technologies for enhanced performance and image quality, including MagicBright2 and MagicSpeed. MagicBright2 automatically optimizes brightness, contrast and gamma correction, based on the specific application. MagicSpeed allows for an ultra-fast response time of 5ms GTG, delivering enhanced motion graphics reproduction with virtually no blurring or ghosting.

The 920WM and the 2220WM monitors are equipped with a 16:10 wide-screen format, thereby helping to improve work efficiency by supporting multiple application windows simultaneously and reducing the need for two monitors.

The new multimedia monitors were designed to create a comfortable, highly-customizable user experience. To that end, all three monitors feature a detachable stand that allows for wall or arm mounting. Furthermore, all three monitors incorporate ergonomic capabilities for enhanced comfort and flexibility.

The 920BM monitor also features a resolution of 1280 x 1024 and a contrast ratio of 1000:1. The 920WM model has a resolution of 1440 x 900 and a contrast ratio of 700:1, while the 2220WM features an ultra-high resolution of 1680 x 1050 and a contrast ratio of 1000:1.
