Monitor with 2D-3D conversion technology
Samsung’s new 3D monitors and HDTV/monitors also allows users to enjoy 3D movies, 3D TV and user-created 3D content like 3D photos and 3D videos. In order to do this, Samsung has created a new 3D technology, based on 3D panels which are available only in Samsung displays.

“With the explosion in entertainment content from 3D films, television and video games and the increased availability of 3D capture devices like cameras and webcams, gamers, home entertainment enthusiasts and content creators are demanding more functionality from their display devices,” said Young Bae, Director of Display Marketing, Samsung Enterprise Business Division. “Consumers will not only enjoy the latest in Samsung display technology for the best possible 2D experience with the 7 and 9 Series monitors but they will also be able to enjoy a wide variety of native 3D content and, on some models, even watch 2D content in 3D thanks to Samsung’s real-time 2D to 3D conversion technology.”

With a swipe of your fingers, you can adjust the screen’s brightness or use the bars to enter keyboard combinations such as Page Up/Down and Ctrl+Alt+Del. You can even use Touch Bar gestures to trigger a whole range of customized commands.
If you are not very comfortable with multi-touch then the Palm Rejection technology automatically disables multi-touch so you can doodle, take notes, and compose on your Penbook while resting the palm of your hand on the screen - just like you would write in a traditional notebook. It is a big plus for everyone and a game-changer for left-handers. The Penbook gives up to 6 hours of continuous battery life.
