Samsung reveals 245T with HDMI, split video

updated 11:25 am EDT, Mon October 8, 2007

Samsung SyncMaster 245T

Samsung this morning launched a new high-end computer LCD aimed at pleasing both home theater users and home users moving up to larger displays. The 24-inch SyncMaster 245T continues the trend of including HDMI input with larger screens but also a more friendly environment for playing game consoles and HD movie readers. Motion Picture Acceleration purportedly helps improve image quality for movies and similar sources; a unique picture-by-picture mode also splits the view into two halves to let users watch shows over one source without interrupting web browsing or other activities on another connection.

The Korean electronics maker also promises a dynamic contrast ratio of up to 1,500:1 (1,000:1 static), a full 16.7 million colors, and a 6ms average pixel response time. Users can attach conventional video through component, S-video, or VGA in addition to the DVI and HDMI sources. A 2W speaker system also provides basic audio for the mixed-media input formats, Samsung says. The 245T is shipping in Korea today for the equivalent of $1,114 but should be available in North America in the near future. Pricing for other areas has not been announced.

    I too

    was thinking of the comely girl. Ever since E3 banned the booth babes, things have been bad in the electronics world.
