How Samsung’s High-Resolution S65UA Monitor Makes Working From Home Better
Samsung Electronics and the New York Mets Hit a Home Run, Unveiling Newest and Brightest Outdoor LED Technology at Citi FieldBy STF News
Samsung Electronics America and the New York Mets recently made sports history with the installment of the largest scoreboard across all professional ballparks. As fans gear up for the start of a new baseball season, they will have a firsthand look at the enhanced and fully upgraded dual-sided centerfield video board, which features a 17,400 square feet LED screen on the front and 6,900 square feet on the back. Since Fall of 2022, Samsung has installed over 29,800 square feet of new LED at Citi Field.
Unveiled for the first time at the Mets’ What’s New at Citi Field event on March 23, attendees had a sneak peek of what fans can expect for the upcoming season. The scoreboard is the highlight of the multiple digital display upgrades throughout the entire stadium, providing fans with a state-of-the-art display experience. Even as fans enjoy the new experienced introduced throughout the ballpark, the new scoreboard ensures that they won’t miss a moment of the action taking place on the field.
“As an emerging New York landmark, Citi Field continues to set itself apart with the integration of cutting-edge display technology that enhances the in-stadium experience for fans,” said James Fishler, Senior Vice President, Display and Home Entertainment Division, Samsung Electronics America. “Samsung is a proud partner of the Mets and with the installment of the first-of-its-kind, double-sided LED display, we are excited to help the franchise reach the next level of technology innovation in professional sports.”
New Centerfield Scoreboard Brings Citi Field to Life
Since forming its partnership in 2021, Samsung has worked with the Mets to transform Citi Field into the most technologically advanced, professional ballpark. The multi-year digital transformation included the deployment of over 1,300 LFD displays and several new Outdoor LED displays last year, totaling over 15 million pixels. The second phase of installments, which will be fully operational by opening day on April 6, will feature several new outfield displays, including the new centerfield scoreboard, increasing the total pixel count in Citi Field to 40 million. In addition to the centerfield scoreboard, Mets fans will see display improvements in all corners of the stadium, including exterior signage, digital concession menu boards and more.
“Samsung’s innovative technology at Citi Field will expand the standard for what fans expect when entering the country’s best stadiums. Over a two-year period, we’ve transformed a once static signage environment to an all-digital experience,” said David Phelps, Vice President, Product Management, Display Division, Samsung Electronics America. “While working with the Mets, we’ve been able to push the boundaries of what is possible by delivering more creative and unique experiences for its fan base.”
The new LED technology also enables opportunities for DOOH (Digital Out-of-Home) advertising by transforming once static displays into a blank canvas of creativity. The scoreboard offers near unlimited configurations for advertisers to stand out from the competition and deliver entirely new visual experiences to fans. With the ability to accept multiple forms of content, the dynamic display helps foster the local economy by providing business owners with an affordable solution to advertise at Citi Field. The back of the dual-sided scoreboard reaches heights so tall that it’s visible from the highway, offering yet another opportunity to increase sponsorship and advertisement revenue, as well as inform and excite fans waiting to enter the stadium to join the action.
Immersive Entertainment for Every Fan
Citi Field’s main video LED board is substantially the largest scoreboard across all professional ballparks and over three times larger than Citi Field’s previous centerfield scoreboard. The expansive 17,400 square-foot high-definition video display ensures that no matter where fans are in the stadium, they won’t miss the action on or off the field. Including the new enhanced display on the back, the centerfield scoreboard features over 24,000 square feet of LED signage and over 13 million pixels, along with a high-resolution, 10mm pixel pitch display to enhance the in-stadium fan experience. Teams in the dugouts and fans in the stands alike can watch 4K instant replays, up-close game action, game stats, interactive updates and more.
“Samsung’s state-of-the-art technology upgrades at Citi Field underscore our goal of providing best-in-class experiences for our fans,” said Mark Brubaker, Chief Technology Officer, New York Mets. “The quality of these enhancements will not only provide our fans with more immersive and memorable visits to the ballpark, but it also positions Citi Field as a trailblazer in the industry.”
The iconic ballpark’s digital transformation demonstrates how today’s display technology can seamlessly integrate into stadiums and introduce unique interactive offerings for fans. Built for the future, Samsung’s technology upgrades to Citi Field create an interactive environment for all generations of baseball fans traveling to the ballpark.

If you are out there in the world and actually think you need this monitor, reach out to me. I want to hear from you.
As reported by The Verge, AMD held its RDNA 3 GPU event earlier today. In addition to a number of announcements at the event, the company also revealed that Samsung, one of its partners, is working on a massive 8K monitor. Not only is the company planning to release this massive 8K monitor, but it is also planned to be curved, taking things to an even more insane level.
Unfortunately, the only detail that AMD revealed about the monitor is that it will feature DisplayPort 2.1 connectivity. The company says that Samsung will be revealing more details about the massive monitor at CES 2023 which is kicking off at the beginning of January in 2023.
The outlet notes that, due to how the aspect ratios of ultrawide monitors work out, we shouldn’t expect a true 8K resolution from the upcoming monitor. Doing some basic math, the new monitor could come in at a resolution of 8,000 pixels by 2,250 pixels.
One of the biggest questions is what the new monitor may cost. The Neo G9, which was Samsung’s more recent high-end ultrawide, debuted at $2500. It’s not hard to think that this 8K version might crack the $3000 price point.
If you’re not looking to drop that kind of money but want a great monitor, check out our list of the Best computer monitors in 2022.
