  • 26 November, 2004 11:04

<p>SYDNEY: 24 November, 2004: Samsung has taken digital convergence another step forward with the launch of its range of LCD TV monitors. Compatible with both data and video signals, with an inbuilt TV tuner, Samsung’s monitors are now flexible enough for a multitude of applications.</p>
<p>These revolutionary TV/monitors implement MagicTuner™, which supports various TV broadcasting standards such as NTSC, PAL and SECAM, permitting the monitors to be used as TVs in virtually every corner of the world (more than 200 countries globally).</p>
<p>In addition to this, the 730MP model also features WiseLink™, which reads music (MP3s), photos (JPEG) and movies (MPEG, .avi and .mov) - anything saved on memory card can simply be plugged in and viewed. No software is required to be installed, nor a PC to support the monitor. Everything you need is built into these incredible monitors.</p>
<p>“These new monitors are further proof that Samsung is leading the way with the digital convergence revolution,” says Joe Serra, Market Development Manager, IT, Samsung Australia. “They now establish monitors as self-reliant multimedia devices. The screen sizes range up to an impressive 19 inches and the range also features a 17 inch 15:9 widescreen model. Added to this is picture in picture technology (PIP), which lets you split your screen in half and watch a football game while finishing off a work document”.</p>
<p>Samsung’s new models are embedded with 5W, 2-channel Virtual Dolby sound system and BBE speakers, as well as an embedded FM radio.</p>
<p>Connection terminals like S-video, component and DVI provide compatibility not only with PCs but also DVD players, VCRs, camcorders and game emulators.</p>
