Samsung Electronics Launches LED Square Display and Transparent Display

Samsung Electronics announced the availability of innovative 1:1 ratio LED square display (UD22B) and transparent display (NL22B), accelerating its leadership in the commercial B2B display market in the second half of this year.

Samsung's distinctive 1:1 ratio square display and all-in-one transparent display showcase provide business owners with extraordinary solutions for creating entirely new types of promotional displays in retail, commercial and public locations.

To mark the launch of these two new display products, Samsung Electronics will introduce them to the general public with an impressive product showcase at IFA 2012, Europe's largest consumer electronics show, to be held in Berlin, Germany, Aug. 31-Sep. 5. This exhibit will demonstrate Samsung's strong position in a new B2B market based on the needs of businesses to distinguish themselves through creative, engaging displays that capture consumer attention.

Providing an alternative to traditional rectangular displays, Samsung's LED square display with 1:1 screen ratio supports unlimited configurations and opens up new potential for creating immersive visual experiences. With 5.5 mm bezel-to-bezel measurement for seamless installation and digital loop out to produce a single image across up to 100 displays, Samsung's 21.6" square display lets commercial users explore limitless possibilities as they design artistic video walls. Multiple displays can easily be connected to create creative mosaics as well as cubic or other three-dimensional shaped displays. Without being limited by the installation space or shape, businesses can create more interactive point-of-sale and advertising displays that engage the consumer.

Samsung's environmentally friendly Direct LED backlight technology used in the UD22B square display generates less heat to reduce power consumption by more than 30 percent compared to existing LCD display technology, lowering operating costs. The UD22B also conserves energy by adjusting brightness according to surrounding brightness, and users easily manage content using Samsung's unique MagicInfo software solution.

Samsung's 22" transparent display (NL22B) is a new type of product, available as an all-in-one showcase, launching a new era of possibilities in digital retail design. The thin LCD panel on the front of the transparent display allows images and animations to dynamically interact with the merchandise inside the showcase while still enabling passers-by to view the product. The three remaining sides are made of protective tempered glass enclosed by a sleek metallic frame, giving the NL22B a luxurious appearance.

Available as an all-in-one showcase for use as a stand-alone display or as an optional 22" kit for wall installation, the NL22B accentuates the display of retail products. Unlike competitive displays with lower transmittance rates (5 percent) that can hide mer*chandise, Samsung's transparent display offers a transmittance rate of 15 percent for exquisite picture quality. The all-in-one kit includes a built-in PC, speakers, LED bar and protective glass, making it remarkably simple for businesses to transform consumer shopping into an immersive in-store experience.

B2B Display Market Leadership
Samsung Electronics is leading in the creation of new markets across the B2B space, including the premium interior market through the launch of large-size LFDs (60" and larger) as well as products that feature both high picture quality and slim design. The company plans to concentrate on developing its premium image in this category and strengthening its market position by partnering world famous luxury brands.

Samsung Electronics has already demonstrated success in its partnership with Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry. At InfoComm 2012, Samsung showcased its cooperative work with Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry with a display featuring square displays and transparent displays as well as luxury retail products from Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry. For Samsung's exhibit at IFA 2012, Samsung's advanced commercial display products will be used to create a retail display layout identical to the immersive store environment planned for Gucci Timepieces & Jewelry store locations.

Six of those square display units are ideal for eyefinity/3d surround setup. Any word on pricing ?

Interesting.

Here is a video of the display case model: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=rZslQZ6iMgA&NR=1




unfortunately the other is a fake marketing shot. Those are photos glued together to give an indication of what the screen with look like. How to know? Lighting and contrast, bezel thinner than spec, these devices are set up to "look out" DVI to show the same material. Setting them up to run as a widescreen is possible... but if you did... you certainly wouldnt have bits of cloud or bridge repeating on one picture as shown. Very poor PR director should be fired for that cockup!

Specs are
Samsung UD22B Specifications

Bezel size: 1.8mm/3.7mm bezel
Resolution: 960 x 960 (1:1 Aspect Ratio)

While none of these are actually interesting for us as display monitors... let's hope Samsung will soon launch some innovative products for us. I'd LOVE to see Airport Control Tower type screens available for business/consumer use, ie 2048x2048 in 21" at less than EUR 10.000!

Those monitors are not for average Joes, common. Resolution is irelevant, if only you need is to display some commercials, announcements, etc...

Which product are you referring to? the ones in the first pic have to be square its for use in department stores and mall's etc., but yes I would agree on the second one it would have been nice for it to be more round.

It could be someone out there owns exclusive rights to make a product with rounded edges.
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that's the case.

You. Because it's stupid (I'm not saying you're stupid). And you too can continue in that thread if you like. That would be better than crapping the rest of the forums with stupid jokes/anti-Apple sentiment.

I wonder why monitor makers deliberately make bezels thick.
I suspect it's only a way to try to make the screen look bigger, just like with paintings. By the looks of the dissambly guide of my ZR30w it has some clearance between the panel module and the plastic edge. ZR30w has an ok bezel width but why make it any wider than necessary? This monitor certainly doesn't need help to appear bigger.
¦p



PS.
Someone getting terribly defensive about a joke, must've hurt some special feelings... Oops.

Really, though I don't give a crap how you feel about such jokes. Deal with it.

Yeah, that is the function of the bezel but I'm wondering why they're intentionally made bigger than what is needed for those purposes. Usually there's awful lot of empty space inside a bezel.

perception to the eye, it allows it to discern the screen from whats in the background physically, its like a focus thing.

Its also an attention getter and a boundry of course
