The 24-inch Series 7 SC770 Touch Monitor is Samsung's first multi-touch display optimised for Windows 8. It supports up to 10 points of simultaneous multi-touch, letting users drag, rotate or select objects on the monitor using their fingers.
The full-HD monitor provides a contrast ratio of 5000:1 and viewing angles of 178 degrees/ 178 degrees. It also comes with a USB hub and in-built speakers (3W x 2).
Samsung also announced 27-inch Series 7 SC750 that focuses on design and performance, minus the frills like touch-screen, speakers and USB hub. At 300 cd/m2, it is rated brighter than the SC770 (250 cd/m2).
