CES 2013: Samsung boosts monitor line-up

Samsung has hit the ground running with the introduction of two new monitors. At first glance, it can be difficult to tell the two apart.

However, there's more than meets the eye, and in this case that happens to be touch capability.

The Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor is Samsung's first multi-touch display that's been optimised for Windows 8. With the ability to support up to 10 points of simultaneous multi-touch, the Series 7 SC770 allows users to pinch, flick, and scroll their way through Microsoft's new operating system.

Complementing this touch capability is an ergonomic stand that offers a 60-degree tilt, which helps minimize any strains that can arise from having to repeatedly reach across a desk to tap the display.

Touch capabilities aside, the Series 7 SC770's 24in screen features a full HD resolution and comprises an MVA panel that offers a wide 178-degree viewing angle. Its chassis, meanwhile, boasts a slick, ultra-thin bezel, and houses HDMI ports, an integrated USB hub, and built-in speakers.

Making its debut alongside the Series 7 SC770 is the Series 7 SC750. Although it doesn't feature touch capabilities like the SC770, the SC750 packs a larger, 27in display that also boasts a full HD resolution, while a WVA LED panel enables a 178-degree viewing angle.

Whereas the SC750's primary emphasis lies in its touch-capacitive screen, the SC750 is all about ergonomics. Accordingly, its slim chassis features a cylindrical metal stand that can pivot 90-degrees, enabling users to use it in either landscape or portrait mode.

The Samsung Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor and the Series 7 SC750 will be available worldwide in the first quarter of 2013.
