Samsung monitors go 3D, multi-display and over IP

In addition to its standard bevy of monitor upgrades, this time with LED backlighting, Samsung rolled out a trio of new monitor products with interesting capabilities.

First up is a 22-inch display that is compatible with Nvidia's 3D vision graphics card. At a price tag of only $349, we don't expect a super high quality screen, but the Samsung 2233RZ is a useful offering for 3D modeling and some video games. If sports a resolution of 1680x1050 pixels, 300cd/m2 brightness, 160 degree viewing angle and 5ms response time in 2D.

With the aid of Nvidia's software, the 2233RZ can covert over 350 games to stereoscopic 3D without the need for special game patches. Because the LCD runs at 120Hz, it can output an image at 60Hz per eye. 3D glasses are included with the monitor and hold a charge for a week before they must be plugged in to a USB port.

Moving away from 3D into the world of multiple displays, Samsung has announced new displays that are compatible with the company's UbiSync technology. This enables users to connect up to 6 monitors to a PC using a USB cable. No graphics card is required, and the displays are compatible with both Windows and Macs.

The Samsung 2243QW offers a 1680x1050 resolution, 5ms response time and 1000:1 contrast ratio. The company also has two "laptop companion" screens, the LD190x and LD220. The LD190x supports UbiSync wireless, which means the video is transmitted from the host notebook without a cable.

Lastly, Samsung has introduced the first PC-over-IP LCD, specifically designed for datacenter environments. The SyncMaster 930ND is a 19-inch display comes with a blade server component. That server connects to other systems in the datacenter and they can be controlled remotely by those using the 930ND. The user can operate a host PC as if it were local, accessing all peripherals and media.
