With most of us now working or conducting online classes from home, many companies are focused on providing products that can enhance the experience. Samsung has officially introduced two new “Do-It-All” monitors, where it’s good for both professional work and entertainment. You are getting the performance of a monitor with the advanced features of a smart TV. The new monitors are called Samsung Smart Monitor M5 and the Smart Monitor M7. The new monitors are the world’s first do-it-all screen that brings together the best technology for work, learning and entertainment. It’s designed to fit in where you need it to when you need it—whether you’re working, learning, or streaming. It’s also Samsung’s first monitor with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Samsung’s Wireless DeX, and a comprehensive entertainment hub with Samsung’s Smart TV platform built-in.
“Consumers’ reliance on monitors has dramatically increased during this time when many are staying-at-home,” said Mark Quiroz, Vice President of Marketing, Samsung Electronics America. “Smart Monitor is Samsung’s response to this new environment; its flexibility to transform into a display for work, school or streaming content makes it an incredible value, especially to younger consumers and cord-cutters seeking a do-it-all display.”
Available in two models, the M5 Full-HD in 27– and 32-inches, and the M7 Ultra HD at 32-inches, the display enables users to seamlessly transition between modes of work, entertainment and learning—making each easier than ever.
Work and Learn
Smart Monitor allows users to see every spreadsheet and image in pin-sharp UHD resolution, while its embedded Wi-Fi means they can work from home without needing a PC or laptop connection – users can view, edit and save Office 365 applications in the cloud directly from the monitor.
Additionally, Smart Monitor features Remote Access, which enables wireless connections to a PC or laptop from anywhere with an Internet connection. It is also the only monitor to support AirPlay2, so you can stream, control and share your favorite content directly from your iPhone, iPad or Mac to your monitor. Smart Monitor can even wirelessly connect to a range of other devices with Wireless Dex, Tap View, or Casting for complete versatility no matter how you work or the devices you own. Using DeX to wirelessly connect Smart Monitor to a Galaxy device will offer users more screen real estate and help them seamlessly multi-task across devices while maintaining full control over each one.
More Features to Help Users Work and Learn:
- Adaptive Picture and Eye Saver Mode will automatically adjust screen brightness and blue light levels based on the environment, and the Flicker-Free screen further reduces strain
- Traditional hardware connectivity with USB-C, USB and Bluetooth 4.2 ports, allows a direct and hassle-free connection to a PC or laptop
- Slim, sleek and compact design easily fits into existing workspaces, even if it’s a home office desk, kitchen countertop or coffee table
- Voice assistance and control with Bixby 2.0, Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant and SmartThings integration for a more accessible experience
The Samsung Smart Monitor is the first UHD display to double as a smart TV and offers a full suite of apps and content to take users’ minds off the needs of the day.
Smart Monitor’s smart TV platform is powered by Tizen and offers an embedded app store. Apps can be downloaded directly to the monitor and viewers can stream content from their favorites, including Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, Apple TV, Amazon Prime, Hulu, YouTube and more, all without the need to connect an external device. The Smart Monitor further blurs the line between a monitor and a smart TV, making it the perfect way to watch whatever the user wants, where they want it.
