Emerging Technologies in the Desktop Monitor Space

Emerging Technologies in the Desktop Monitor Space

Some big innovations have come to the display monitor space—and Samsung is leading the charge.

In a special As the Gears Turn edition, Devaughn Bittle and Patrick Cash speak with Mike Statchura, B2B Channel Sales Manager at Samsung Electronics, about:

  • Recent surprises in the display industry
  • Exciting Samsung display features
  • Financing options

Recent surprises

Mike has been a display fan his entire life.

As a fan, he knows that the allure is less about the features, the functions or some special widget. What people ultimately want is the experience. They want to know that things work and that the monitor looks crisp and clear.

With that in mind, it can be easy to experience feature paralysis. There’s nothing worse than having a slew of different monitors and docking stations, and not knowing which ones are compatible.

Flexibility

That’s where Samsung’s flexibility comes in, according to Mike.

“Maybe you just need one single input,” he says, “you’re going to have that option, but you also have the option to have every input under the sun, and now, different monitors ship with all the different cables right out of the box.”

New Samsung features

Webcam

Samsung actually built the webcam monitor right into the display. It has Windows Hello in it, which means when you sit down to work, you don’t need to remember a password because your face will unlock everything.

Smart TV environments

Monitors are increasingly adopting Smart TV environments, providing incredible flexibility. If your area has limited surface space for both a media hub and a desktop monitor, you can have both in one and save on space.

USB-C

USB-C ports offer an ease of connectivity from the device to the dock to the monitor. No need for an extra USB hub.

In addition to USB-C, some monitors also have an LAN port built in. If security is key, there’s no need to worry about connecting to Wi-Fi because the system can be hardwired.

Financing options

Samsung and Ingram Micro have worked closely together to create an exclusive finance program.

“It’s a flexible payment plan,” Mike says, “and it’s a really nice option.”

It’s an incredible way to scale the cost of the technology you need, and it allows reseller partners to get paid up front.

“Finance is such a key talking point,” Mike says, “and it changes the game.”
