Samsung extends its creative professional monitor line-up with ViewFinity S8

The Samsung ViewFinity S8

Samsung has unveiled the ViewFinity S8 (model S80PB), a high-res monitor aimed at creative professionals. The display is available in two sizes – 32-inch and 27-inch which have an ultra high definition resolution of 3,840 x 2,160. If you’re in a well-lit room, this display is ideal because it’s a UL-verified Glare Free monitor.

Commenting, Hyesung Ha, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, said:

“ViewFinity is the summation of Samsung’s goal to deliver the most precise and functional monitors to businesses who require pinpoint accuracy and consistency throughout their work. We are proud to offer this monitor to designers, artists and professionals who will use our technology to create new ideas and experiences that realize their full potential.”

As it’s a monitor for professionals, it’s important that it produces the correct colours. For this reason, Samsung’s new monitor has been PANTONE Validated meaning it can correctly reproduce over 2,000 colours and an additional 110 skin tone shades that were outlined in the PANTONE SkinTone Guide.
