CJ791 QLED Monitor featuring Thunderbolt 3 connectivity Streamlines Performance and Enhances Content Presentation for Entertainment and Professional Users
MISSISSAUGA, ON, Jan. 10, 2018 /CNW/ – At CES 2018, Samsung Electronics Canada expanded the connectivity and performance capabilities of its signature curved display line-up with the debut of its new CJ791 monitor, the first curved monitor to feature Intel Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. Designed for entertainment and business audiences, the 34-inch CJ791 model aligns single-source power and processing speed with an exceptional picture quality for a comfortable and productive user experience.
Through a single Thunderbolt 3 cable, CJ791 users can link and dock their monitor and laptop without extensive wiring. The Thunderbolt 3 connection provides processing speed of up to 40 Gigabits per second (Gbps) – a rate nearly four times faster than current USB alternatives¹ – allowing users to enjoy connectivity across a full ecosystem of docks, displays and peripheral devices including iOS laptops, USB type-C laptops, and other desktop accessories like storage drives or external graphics cards. The Thunderbolt 3 interface also enables the CJ791 to provide up to 85 watts (W) of laptop charging power.
“Whether for gaming or professional use, the CJ791 aligns Thunderbolt 3 connectivity with our immersive curvature and QLED picture quality, pushing the envelope of innovation and intuitive design,” said Pat Bugos, Vice President, Consumer Electronics, Samsung Canada.
Efficiency at Work
The CJ791’s clear, detail-rich design empowers business users to efficiently complete a range of tasks. The 21:9 aspect ratio provides ample screen real estate for multitasking, while a complementary 3440×1440 ultra-wide QHD resolution elevates content and imagery with nearly 2.5 times the pixel density of full HD alternatives². In turn, professionals can view large files, spreadsheets and data tables in a more readable format, and without extensive scrolling or zooming.
Professional users can also enjoy the flexibility to customize the CJ791 to their unique workspace. Along with the wire-reducing Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, the CJ791’s slim-depth and narrow-bezel design accommodates multi-display setups without sacrificing content consistency or visual appearance. The display’s height-adjustable stand and tilt functionality also empower users to customize positioning and work within their most comfortable viewing parameters.
Ahead of the Game
The Samsung CJ791 showcases content with the kind of brilliant and realistic detail that gamers and entertainment enthusiasts alike seek out. The display’s QLED presentation technology accurately reflects colours across a 125 percent sRGB spectrum and creates visual engagement through deep blacks, bright whites and pure shades. This refinement, coupled with the s 1,500R curvature and ultra-wide 178-degree viewing angle, gives users a complete view of their surroundings, and ensures full immersion in every scene.
A host of integrated gamer-friendly features also gives users an edge with Game Mode, which contains a dynamic gamma setting that intuitively adjusts colour and contrast of each individual scene to produce a true-to-life environment. The CJ791’s four milliseconds (ms) response time also ensures smooth transitions between scenes for immersive racing, flight simulation and first-person battle games.
