Samsung Ships Magicnet Digital Displays

Samsung is now shipping the latest versions of its MagicNet enabled digital displays. The 40-inch SyncMasterT 400PXn and the 46-inch SyncMaster 460Pxn, which generated interest when they were unveiled at InfoComm in June, utilize Samsung's MagicNet software and are designed for use in corporate and commercial digital signage applications. The MagicNet software enables users to control content across a number of displays from a remote location using a single computer, eliminating the need for a computer with every screen thereby resulting in a greater cost savings for the network operator.

Upgrades to the 2006 MagicNet enabled displays include an embedded Windows XP operating system, high definition resolution, portrait or landscape orientation modes, and video wall support up to 4x4 displays, all supported by MagicNet. These upgrades extend the capabilities of the displays with more choices for end-users while maintaining ease of use and simplifying the installation process. MagicNet enabled displays are appropriate for use in airports, malls, restaurants and commercial buildings.

In order to make content creation and distribution as simple as possible for the network operator, the displays come with Microsoft Office players, such as Microsoft PowerPoint pre-installed, requiring a minimum of training and expertise to operate the display network. This allows users to simply drag-and-drop existing content files into the schedule to plan their programming.

The displays are currently available through Samsung resellers and distribution partners, which can be located by calling 800-SAMSUNG or by visiting www.samsung.com. All Samsung displays are backed by a three-year, parts and labor warranty as well as toll-free technical support.
