The success of a design, from inception to construction, can depend on the extent to which designers can represent their intentions, but the days when architects used the drafting pencil and parallel edge to exercise physical control over their work are rapidly fading away. While computerization makes possible innovative forms and new methods of working, if not calibrated and engineered perfectly, digital technology can bring unintended consequences into the design process. Samsung’s UD970 monitor, however, resynchronizes the design process with the build environment through ultra-high definition (UHD) technology. Samsung partnered with leading designers, including Mark English Architects, to explore the importance of high-resolution detail in their work and ArchDaily has teamed up to bring these UHD monitors to our readers. To learn more, read on after the break.
The UD970’s features reflect the fact that it was created specifically with the needs of designers, architects and other visually-intensive industries in mind.
- Its 32 inch screen expands before its users to draw them into their work.
- The 3840 x 2160 UHD resolution makes it easy to see the most subtle of details and minute differences between colors.
- To improve workflow, Samsung included the ability to split the screen in half and into quarters; with this feature, designers can compare images side-by-side and view several processes at once.
- The monitor also offers 99.5% Adobe® RGB and 100% sRGB compliant color support, which allows it to display colors in the way they will appear in the physical world.
Two of our readers have the chance to win one of these monitors, which each have a minimum advertised price of $1,999.99. To enter our drawing for a UD970, follow the instructions below.
