Samsung launches ‘Response Time Accelerator’ Monitors in Middle East region

Dubai, Samsung Electronics has launch its new ‘Fastest Response Time’ Monitors, into the Middle East region. The new offerings, targeted at multimedia aficionados and design professionals, aims to consolidate and grow the company’s share of the regional monitor market to over 45 per cent in 2004.

The 2 new LCD monitor models come with the Samsung”s Proprietary Response Time Accelerator (RTA) chip that minimizes response time when switching colors. This exclusive Samsung RTA chip has, phenomenally, reduced the time needed for switching between mid-level colors (Gray to Gray) in moving images, to the world”s shortest 4ms, on the 17” (SyncMaster 730BF) and 19” (SyncMaster 930BF) models.

Mr. K. V. Narayanan, Sales Manager, Information Technology division, Samsung Gulf Electronics said: “The response time listed in monitor specifications refers to the time needed to switch between highest level and lowest level colors (White to Black), which only appear in images with little movement, such as text or web-surfing. As a result, in most instances the response time is not adequate to show the real improvements in drawing moving images for movies or games.”

“Samsung”s new models with minimized response time in mid-level colors remove dragging in moving images, and flickering when using professional designer programs such as CAD. Those who look at monitors for a long time, especially design professionals and multimedia users, will surely welcome these improvements,” Mr. Narayanan added.

Furthermore, Samsung launched a new LCD Monitor (SyncMaster CX720 TA) that has a front bezel processed with Silver-Nano Coating for an anti-bacterial and Sterilizing effect. The Silver-Nano coating with superior anti-bacterial performance and anion emissions make this monitor perfect for user’s well-being. The Korean Agency for Technology and Standards has proven that Silver-Nano coating removes 99% of Colon Bacilli, 99% of Bacillus Subtilis and 88% of Staphylococci.
