Samsung debuts professional-grade Series 9 SB971 27-inch display
Thursday, August 22, 2013 @ 9:05am

Samsung Electronics America today introduced the latest iteration of its professional-grade 27-inch Series 9 monitor, the SB971. Featuring quad high-definition resolution and wide viewing angles, the premium, hand-calibrated Series 9 SB971 was designed for users that require a richer viewing experience, such as photo enthusiasts and graphic artists.

Each SB971 monitor is individually hand-tuned by Samsung technicians and features a built-in color calibration engine. Samsung’s Natural Color Expert technology includes hardware color calibrations within the monitor to help ensure that there is no displayable loss of tonalities on screen.   In addition, quad high-definition resolution (2560x1440) delivers four times more detail than traditional HD. The SB971 monitor also features Samsung’s Plane Line Switching (PLS) panel technology, ensuring that the accurate color reproduction can been viewed at wide horizontal and vertical angles. The display has a 178-degree viewing angle, with a 1000:1 contrast ratio. Response time is 5ms. Display connectivity is provided by DisplayPort, DVI-DL, and HDMI. The SB971 monitor will be available beginning fall 2013 for a retail price of $1,200.
