To match its sharp, curved display, the PC features a sleek, metallic deco frame and complimentary stand that brings premium design right to any desk. The multimedia features of the ATIV One 7 Curved don't end with its stunning display. It was engineered to offer best-in-class sound, with two dynamic 10W stereo speakers, a surround sound experience with Dolby Sound Effects, and lossless audio transmission through APT-X technology. For movie and game enthusiasts, the Intel Core i5 Processor and 8GB of memory let users keep up with fast moving graphics, allowing them to make the most of the amazing screen and unparalleled sound. Bluetooth Music Play 3.0 allows users to instantly connect and play music from their smartphone through the ATIV One 7 Curved speakers, even if the PC is off.

The new monitors will be on display at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Samsung's booth, 11906 in Central Hall, from January 6-9, 2015.

The experience is furthered by the slim depth and thin bezel, which support a seamless multi-display environment. The ability to easily connect several monitors makes the SE790C perfect for gamers, entertainment enthusiasts and professionals looking to be more productive across multiple screens. A 21:9 aspect ratio and wide viewing angles (178°/178°) make it possible to fit even more content on the screen, and view it from anywhere in the room.

This ensures consumers get the optimal at-home viewing experience, complete with the colors exactly as the director intended. The result is a greater range of deeper, richer colors, as well as more robust, lifelike picture quality. This makes the UE590 perfect for consuming multimedia ranging from the hottest Hollywood movies to home photos. The UE590 monitor will be available beginning March 2015 for an MSRP of $599.99. Samsung UE850 UHD Monitor: The UE850 is part of Samsungs expanding line of UHD desktop monitors.

It reduces power consumption to 0.00W in stand-by mode, lower than the average monitor which uses 0.3 W to 0.5W, saving energy, resources and money.

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. Unveils New Ultraportable Laptop, the ATIV Book 9

Samsung Electronics America, Inc. unveiled its new ultraportable laptop, the ATIV Book 9. As the latest addition to the ATIV Book 9 line, this stunning, all-aluminum PC offers an unparalleled WQXGA display, as well as improved connectivity and mobility for today's always-on consumer. The ATIV Book 9 will be on display at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Samsung's booth, 11906 in Central Hall, from January 6-9, 2015. Measuring in at an impressive, blade-thin 0.46-inch and 2.06 pounds, this laptop is the lightest Book 9 ever, allowing users to easily carry it anywhere. It can slide into a briefcase or purse as effortlessly as a folder, eliminating the need for a separate laptop bag. With an Intel Broadwell Core M processor, precisely designed for super-slim, ultra-portable devices, and a battery life of up to 10.5 hours, the ATIV Book 9 is the ultimate laptop for mobile users. Additionally, Samsung has further improved on the ergonomic keyboard to offer integrated multiple one-touch activations for security features and easy mode switching. The keyboard curves to fit and cradle the user's fingers, resulting in a more comfortable and efficient typing experience. The ATIV Book 9 also features improved connectivity and mobile capabilities. With the addition of WiFi Amp, the Internet connection is up to 20% faster, ensuring the strongest wireless access point is prioritized based on the user's environment. The result is immediate and always-on access. Together with proprietary Samsung solutions that enable seamless sharing between devices (SideSync 3.0 and SamsungLink 2.0), users can effortlessly share files and make and receive phone calls from the laptop without having their mobile device on-hand. The ATIV Book 9 delivers an incredible visual and audio experience. With a WQXGA (2,560x1,600) display and integrated Digital Natural Image Engine (mDNIe) technology, it offers users discernably sharper text, images and video content. To enhance its multimedia capabilities, the laptop features a Wolfson WM5102 UHQA lossless audio player and FLAC playback compatibility to produce professional studio-quality sound. Users can enjoy movies and music the way they were meant to be heard, with impeccable precision and excellence. The laptop is equipped with a low-reflection coating with 350nits of brightness that bumps up to 700nits when in outside mode, along with a one-touch (Fn9), outdoor control mode to enhance sunlight-readability. The result is sharply displayed, beautiful content both indoors and out. Security concerns are reduced due to Samsung's threefold solution: at log-in, users can set a drawing pattern on the touchpad and hit one key to activate a secret screen to shield content from onlookers, as well as camera and microphone record blocking. Samsung also developed a single-function command to easily protect on-screen content. Users do not have to worry about compromising their private information in a public setting; they can simply press Fn10 to select what windows to hide. This feature is ideal for mobile business users who often work from planes, coffee shops and other public places, as well as for consumers who use their laptops on the go. The ATIV Book 9 will be available for pre-order beginning first quarter of 2015, for a starting MSRP of $1,199.99.
