The Series 7 SC750 monitor sports a slim, ergonomic design that is capable of a 90-degree pivot for enhanced convenience to users. It is optimised for surfing the web and viewing documents in both landscape and portrait modes.
The monitor’s sleek stand precisely positions the screen at an eye-level without the need for a support fixture and its cylinder-shaped metal stand accentuates the beauty of the slim monitor. Displaying ultra-sharp images, the SC750 monitor touts a 5,000:1 contrast ratio, which is five times that of a standard monitor.
The Series 7 SC750 monitor and the Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor will be available worldwide in the first quarter of 2013.

The company statement adds that it offers unparalleled picture quality and life-like colour accuracy, each individual monitor is individually hand-tuned by technicians before it is shipped. In addition, a built-in colour calibration engine enables users to adjust the uniformity, gamma and white balance of the display using Samsung’s proprietary Natural Color Expert technology, resulting in the most accurate colour possible.
