Samsung has just announced a brand new 5k monitor that looks absolutely stunning.
This is the ViewFinity S9. It’s a 27” inch, 5k monitor with a resolution of 51 20 by 28 80. It’s an IPS display, a 60hz, 5mili seconds response time, 1000 to 1 ratio and it’s aimed at professionals, photographers, video editors and so on.
With 99% DCI-P31 and 218 pixels per inch, it provides more saturated and vivid colors with crisper details, perfect for those who rely on visual fidelity.2 Furthermore, a typical brightness of 600 cd/m2 makes it easy to work in nearly any lighting environment. The monitor can also be calibrated via your smartphone, a first in the industry.
“Our new 5K monitor is designed to deliver the highest performance and best experience for professionals in creative and visual industries,” said Hoon Chung, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “With the ViewFinity lineup, we will provide creatives with top-notch visual experiences, along with the lifelike color clarity and versatile connectivity they need to achieve the best in any project.”
As expected, this will not be cheap with prices rumoured to be $1600 dollars. It looks good, it sounds like it will perform fantastically but at that price point, in my opinion, you’ve got to really want or need it.
