Samsung introduces SyncMaster 192T

The SyncMaster 192T is a high-end 19” LCD featuring a super-slim one-inch panel profile, a full 90° screen tilt for unmatched flexibility and height adjustment capability. The 192T is the latest addition to Samsung’s family of dual-hinge, digital/analog TFT monitors and will be shipping nationwide in May 2003.

“As global technology leader, Samsung continuously goes the extra mile to provide  is customers with unique display designs and innovations and superior viewing technologies,” comments Rey Roque, Vice President of Marketing for Samsung’s Digital Information Technology Division (DITD). “The new SyncMaster 192T offers business and corporate users a high-end, large-screen display solution that builds upon the success of Samsung’s one-of-a-kind dual-hinge design concept, while offering the most advanced viewing technology available today.” 

Targeted to business, SOHO and high-end graphics users, the SyncMaster 192T is offered in an attractive silver color and features a sleek new cabinet design with a advanced cable management system that routs interface cables through the stand for a clutter-free desktop-presentation. In addition, the versatile 192T sports a unique stand that can be folded back and used as the wall mount bracket without removing the base at a total depth of only 2” flush to the wall.

For users with the need for picture-perfect image quality, the SyncMaster 192T featuresSamsung’s Patterned Vertical Alignment (PVA), the latest technology advancement in liquid crystal cell structure for improved viewing. The display offers an extra-wide 170° viewing angle, an exceptionally high brightness rate of 250cd/m2, a 500:1 contrast ratio and an extremely fast response time of less than 25 milliseconds. The 192T is ideal for those who require data and graphics that are accurately displayed with photo-realistic image quality including motion video applications, 3D technologies, entertainment, gaming and Web design. The 192T has an ultra-fine pixel pitch of .294 mm and offers a maximum resolution of  1280 x 1024.

The new display gives users the option of using either a digital or analog interface for viewing images and text. The Digital Video Interface (DVI) ensures a shaper, cleaner image and a more accurate representation of the original video source. Since video starts out digital in a PC graphics card, the digital output is directly interfaced to the digital input of the LCD panel and always provides the optimum quality image. In addition, no end-user adjustments are required with a digital display, even when randomly changing resolutions.

When used with an analog input, the SyncMaster 192T offers an easy-access, one-button auto calibration system for greater control over the on-screen image allowing for quick proportioning of screen geometry, contrast, brightness and clock-phase. The On Screen Display system features a comprehensive menu of controls, including auto adjustment, color and image size.

Samsung’s latest 19” LCD is Mac and Sun compatible, and users can receive a free MacMaster and SunMaster adaptor with the purchase of the monitor. Consumers just need to contact Samsung’s customer service representatives and verify the model and serial numbers and the adaptor will be mailed out immediately.

The 192T features Natural ColorÔ software which tunes up your display to ensure that the colors you see on your Samsung monitor are consistent with the original images — from detailed graphics programs to Web site merchandise.

For easy installation and optimum configuration, the 192T has built-in Plug and Play capability that conforms to the Video Electronics Standards Association’s (VESA) Display Data Channel (DDC) Type 1/2B standards. Plug and Play automatically configures the monitor with the host computer and selects the optimum resolution and refresh rates to achieve crisp detail, bright colors and razor sharp images.

Samsung’s 192T meets TCO ’99 standards for low emissions and incorporate a power management system that complies with VESA, DPMS, Energy2000 and the Environmental Protection Agency’s Energy Star Standards for energy efficient reduced power consumption.

Samsung backs all of its monitors with a three-year, parts and labor warranty as well as toll-free technical support 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. In addition, Samsung offers a three-year Advanced Replacement Program, three-year Repair & Return or Exchange and three-year Shuttle Exchange for hassle-free repairs.
