Samsung announces new touch-capable Series 7 monitor optimized for Windows 8


Samsung is starting the year off with a bang by outing a brand new, touch-capable monitor specifically optimized for Microsoft’s latest and greatest OS, Windows 8. The Series 7 SC770 is Samsung’s first multi-touch display optimized for Windows 8, and has a 24-inch panel and boasts supporting up to 10 points of simultaneous multi-touch. The display also has the ability to tilt 60-degrees, which allows comfortable use of its touch-screen on desks.

Not content to just announce one monitor this New Year, Samsung also announced the Series 7 SC750. While this particular 27-inch monitor isn’t a touch-capable, it makes up for it by being able to pivot 90 degrees, allowing users to use it in portrait mode, which should delight professional artists. It has a 5,000:1 contrast ratio which Samsung says is five times that of a standard monitor. Both devices will be in Samsung’s booth come CES, and will be released globally in the coming months.
