Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd, a global leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, has unveiled the new All-In-One PC Series 7. Building on the premium aspects of the Samsung Series 9 Notebook, the new All-In-One (AIO) PC inherits Samsung’s advanced engineering craftsmanship with highly finessed and stylish design.

Beyond high performance, the new Samsung AIO PC Series 7 has been crafted to deliver an entirely new AIO PC experience. Driven by a 3rd Generation IntelCore i7 processor, 8GB RAM, dedicated AMD Radeon HD graphics and a WQHD display with resolution of 2560×1440, the new AIO PC Series 7 embodies innovative sense recognition features such as 10-finger multi-touch screen control and hand gesture commands.

“The All-In-One PC market carries enormous potential to grow by taking convergence technologies to the next level,” said Mike van Lier, Business Leader for IT Solutions at Samsung South Africa. “The new All-In-One PC Series 7 lives up to the true promise of all-in-one, incorporating every hardware and software feature that offers a maximised home entertainment experience.”

“This device truly demonstrates our commitment to innovation in technology. Today customers not only gain a PC that is stylish to look at, but more importantly, one that is backed by strong features to deliver real user convenience.”

Samsung All-In-One PC Set for Unlimited User Experience
With the new Windows 8 platform, demand for All-In-One PCs is expected to increase further as AIOs will have stronger, as well as more convenient, features and is expected to largely replace the existing desktop PC.

To provide such user benefits, Samsung has perfected not only the AIO’s hardware but also its software aspects to offer completely new experiences.

Intuitive Touch Function and Wider View
For an unlimited premium user experience, Samsung AIO PC Series 7 has been equipped with a 10-finger multi-touch screen – a technological leap in interactivity, surpassing traditional two-finger multi-touch by providing full touch control using all ten fingers. Its enhanced sensitivity enables users to enjoy the full capabilities of the latest entertainment applications or perform complicated content editing. Pinch to zoom on content or rotate images, and scroll through pages with complete ease using 10 multi-touch functions.

To enjoy its full capabilities as a home entertainment system, the new AIO PC has a viewing angle of 178 degrees** vertically and horizontally, which makes watching a movie with friends a true pleasure.

Gesture – It couldn’t be easier
To further expand user experience, the new AIO PC has five hand gesture recognition features that conveniently let users control the device with just a flick of the wrist from up to a meter away, perfect for enjoying home entertainment, for example. Swipe right or left to turn the pages of an e-book, or rotate your palm clockwise or counter-clockwise to change the volume while watching a movie. You can simply close your hand to click on an option in a programme and stop watching a movie by just waving your hands. The option of controlling and interacting with the device through motion control is breaking the physical boundaries between the consumer and screen, and is offering more convenience and enriching the consumers’ experience.

The True Performer
Power and performance are ensured with a 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor and 8GB RAM. A powerful AMD Radeon HD 7850M graphics processor, Blu-ray drive, and up to 1TB HDD and 64GB SSD ensure that content in a wide array of formats is readily available in no time, and enable seamless playback, editing, creating and saving of content.

To further expand the true all-in-one experience, the new device is equipped with 14-Watt speakers, while Tweeter and Dolby sound*** deliver rich sound quality in any environment.

The AIO’s latest WQHD** display, featuring 2560×1440 resolution, delivers a crisp, clear and all-encompassing viewing experience. Users are now able to fit more windows into a single screen without compromising on scale. Browsing online while simultaneously watching a movie is no longer an issue.
