Samsung today unveiled the QMD Series, a new lineup of 4K UHD commercial displays.
The announcement was made at the InfoComm show held June 18-20 in Las Vegas Convention Center.
Designed for high-end retail, hospitality or public spaces, the Samsung QMD Series includes slim, full-featured displays featuring four times the number of pixels (3840 x 2160) compared to Full HD (1080p).
The Picture by Picture function allows users to display up to four content feeds at once, each supporting Full HD 1080 resolution. The QMD Series also supports full 60Hz content playback utilizing up to two DisplayPort 1.2 ports. Available through Samsung distribution partners starting in August, the QMD Series displays come in 55- and 85-inch models.
Samsung is also bringing UHD content to the desktop with the launch of the UD970, a 32-inch UHD professional desktop monitor designed for professionals that run applications requiring accurate image reproduction. The Samsung UD970 UHD monitor will be available in August.
Further expanding its Smart Signage Platform display lineup, Samsung is introducing a new 21.5-inch DB Series commercial display. Roughly the size of a sheet of tabloid paper, the new display offers a smart replacement for small static posters used for retail, restaurant, or corporate environments. It incorporates built-in WiFi, so power is the only cabling required for installation.
Featuring the next-generation Samsung Smart Signage Platform system-on-chip, the DB Series display eliminates the need for an external media player and comes with Samsung MagicInfo software for easy content management and scheduling.
Among the other products on display at Samsung's booth will be a sequence of video walls presenting changing landscapes and other content across more than 50 ultra-narrow bezel displays.
