      Samsung Electronics today announced the global launch of Odyssey Neo G7 (Model name: G70NC), the company’s first flat Mini-LED model, adding a new form factor to the industry-leading Odyssey lineup. The new monitor delivers a large screen designed to give gamers a more comprehensive range of vision and details — inviting them to the worlds of their games with lifelike picture quality.
       
      “The gaming monitor market is only going to get bigger, and gamers are now seeking more out of their monitors,” said Hoon Chung, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “We are not just delivering better gaming experience — we are rebuilding new smart capabilities into our screens that give gamers an all-in-one place for technology and entertainment. Our innovations are enabling gamers everywhere to stay absorbed in their games with visual performance that enhances the intense emotional experiences.”
       
      The Samsung Odyssey Neo G7 is designed to deliver lifelike picture quality, a customizable high-performance viewing environment and personalized features for optimal gaming and entertainment.
       
       
      Gaming Monitor Big Enough for Any Game and Platform
      The large 43” screen delivers 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160) with VESA Display HDR600 and HDR 10+ certification for advanced picture quality showcasing the best graphics of today. The Odyssey Neo G7 brings Samsung’s Quantum Matrix Technology to the fore, using Quantum Mini LEDs, which enable ultra-fine and precise control of the densely packed LEDs. As a result, users can see richer blacks, more expansive color expression and more detail, even in shadowy gaming environments.
       
      Additionally, the Matte Display reduces light reflection on the screen, minimizing distractions during the most intense gaming sessions and letting the large screen deliver details while keeping the player focused on the game and the stunning visual performance.
       
      The Odyssey Neo G7 is a great monitor for any gaming platform — using DisplayPort or HDMI connection to hook it up to the users’ Gaming rig or switch to HDMI 2.1 to play on their latest game console. Another option is to play a mobile game on a larger 43” screen through the built-in WIFI/Bluetooth or just connect a controller to enjoy a game in the cloud without even having a console.
       
       
      Performance To Take Gaming to the Next Level
      A 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms (MPRT) response time allow a swift, smooth response and enable precise mouse movements. Even during the most intense moments, the Odyssey Neo G7 keeps extremely smooth and fast action gameplay and reduces stuttering, input latency and screen tearing through AMD FreeSync Premium Pro support.
       
      Users increasingly expect personalized and customizable gaming experiences. The Odyssey Neo G7 provides a range of innovative features that let users adjust screen size, position and even ratio for an optimal gaming setup. Flex Move Screen allows users to adjust the screen size between 43- and 20-inches to match their preferred size based on the game they play and even change the screen position. So, users can find the perfect way to perform at their best in any game.
       
      To personalize their performance, users can use Samsung Game Bar,1 a powerful tool enabling users to quickly view and change important settings without ever needing to leave the game screen. Players can see and change FPS (Frames Per Second), aspect ratio, high dynamic range (HDR) and variable refresh rate (VRR) or adjust settings such as screen ratio, response time and Game Picture mode. Game Bar puts the player in control without missing any of the action.
       
       
      Smart Features for Personalized Experiences
      The Odyssey Neo G7 is equipped with smart features to cater to users’ wide variety of needs, with customizable experiences through Samsung Smart Hub and Samsung Gaming Hub.
       
      Samsung Gaming Hub2 is an all-in-one game streaming discovery platform that allows instant access to games from partners such as Xbox and NVIDIA GeForce NOW, with no downloads or storage space requirements. It is the ultimate tool to enable users the freedom to explore every corner of the gaming world without limitations.
       
      In addition, users can also get the smart TV experience with apps from partners like Prime Video, Netflix and YouTube through Samsung Smart Hub to enjoy various over-the-top (OTT) content using an Internet connection without even booting up their PC or connecting to other devices.
       
      The Odyssey Neo G7 will be available globally from Q1 2023, with launch schedules varying by region. For more information, please visit: Odyssey Neo G7.

      Samsung Electronics has equipped the new flagship attraction, “Chasseurs de Tornades” (Tornado Hunters), at the Futuroscope theme park in Poitiers, France, with innovative technology to bring an immersive and lifelike experience to guests. Samsung’s collaboration with Futuroscope Management and Development (FMD) helped bring the breathtaking attraction to life, making the signage installed by Samsung the largest 360-degree circular LED screen in Europe.
       

       
      The new attraction, Chasseurs de Tornades, is the result of four years of diligent work between the FMD team and Samsung, an industry leader in the global signage market for the past 13 consecutive years.1 The collaboration has produced a completely immersive audience experience through the use of cutting-edge audiovisual technology.
       
      The concept behind the attraction is an exciting adventure where viewers confront nature’s most extreme elements, plunging them into an immersive whirlwind experience created by Samsung. Based on the story of Chasseurs de Tornades, visitors follow a team of researchers in their all-terrain vehicle in pursuit of tornadoes.
       
      Sitting atop a dynamic rotating platform, guests come face-to-face with the intensity of a powerful tornado on the largest circular LED wall in Europe. The enormous LED wall from Samsung measures 17 meters in diameter by eight meters high with a total surface area of 420 square meters, making it the largest LED screen of this type in an amusement park that Samsung has installed in the world.
       
      ▲ Behind the seats are removable LED walls, allowing actors to be able to perform in the open space.
       
      Collectively, it is made up of 800 LED cabinets from the Samsung Indoor IFR series and offers 21K resolution for hyper realistic immersion. Thanks to HDR LED technology, scenes are optimized for high contrast to display detailed, lifelike images. The maximum peak light output is 2,400 nits, and the static contrast rate is 12,000:1, allowing for premium picture quality.
       
      The attraction itself is a 120-seat dynamic motion theatre surrounded by the 360-degree LED screen. Four parts of the screen move down to let the audience come in and out, as well as see two live stage shows through the sliding doors. The flexible design properties of the IFR solution make it suitable for any location, perfectly aligning with the circular dimensions needed for this unique attraction. Additionally, the IFR solution provides double the power supply, giving the attraction greater reliability.
       
      ▲ The view from the technical room, showing the attraction’s platform supported by three axes that help it lift, rotate 360⁰ and move in three different directions at the same time.
       
      A highlight of the attraction is the removable LED walls where actors perform — a part of the attraction that Samsung was selected to outfit with an LED screen made up of 105 cabinets. To create a truly immersive experience for guests from the moment they enter the attraction, Samsung equipped the “pre-show” area with 20 LED cabinets to create an optical theater known as a “hologram.”
       
      “The circular screen we installed at Futuroscope is the largest LED project we have completed,” said Jeremy Taghon, Head of CE B2B Division at Samsung Electronics France. “I am impressed by and thankful for the hard work and partnership between FMD and Samsung that brought this important technological milestone to life.”
       
      “The contrast ratio, the image, the sharpness, it’s just incredible. An attraction like this is made to last at least 15 years, and LED is the only technology that’s durable enough,” said Yannis Marchet, Development and Projects Director at FMD. “When management agreed we could work with Samsung, everything went smoothly.”
       
      The attraction earned several international awards in 2022, including “Best New Ride” at the European Star Awards and “Best Product Innovation” as well as “Best Dark Ride or Media-based Experience” at the ParkWorld Excellence Awards. Most recently, it won “Outstanding Achievement” from the Themed Entertainment Association, an accolade considered to be the prize for the best attraction in the world.
       
      By installing the largest 360-degree circular LED signage in Europe, Samsung has enabled FMD to wow Futuroscope guests with a mesmerizing audiovisual experience unlike any other.

      The Odyssey Ark delivers a cinematic gaming experience thanks to its unique, curved screen, high performance 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time (GtG) and crisp 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution. Users can further customize their gaming experience using Flex Move Screen, which allows users to adjust screen size between 55- and 27-inches, change the screen position and even switch the screen ratio between 16:9, 21:9 and 32:9 — all with a simple touch of Ark Dial. This freedom is not only horizontal but also vertical position (Cockpit mode), giving users even more control of the viewing experience.
       
      The Odyssey Ark also comes equipped with Samsung’s Quantum Matrix Technology that uses Quantum Mini LEDs to enable ultra-fine and precise control of the densely packed LEDs, along with 14-bit processing, which provides stunning, ultra-realistic graphics.
       
      Visitors will also have the opportunity to experience a retail demo station for cloud gaming and the Samsung Gaming Hub. The retail display will feature three gaming stands, the incredible Odyssey Ark and two of Samsung’s latest ultra-high-definition TVs — the Neo QLED 8K and Neo QLED 4K. The Samsung Gaming Hub gives users the chance to experience popular Xbox Game Pass titles in addition to selecting new games upon their release. With a vast library of games from the biggest names in the industry, including Xbox, NVIDIA GeForce NOW and Utomik, users can jump into a world of unlimited possibilities with the Samsung Gaming Hub.
       
      “We’re thrilled to bring both our Gaming Hub retail display and ground-breaking Odyssey Ark to consumers this winter at one of the U.K.’s most popular shopping destinations, in addition to other promotions around London,” said Tom Morey, Director of Direct-to-Consumer at Samsung Electronics UK&I. “Through these activities, fans in London will now get the chance to experience the gaming screen for themselves and enjoy an adrenaline-fueled experience like never before.”
