The SyncMaster 460PXn with MagicNet
460PXn happens to be the first 46" LCD

Targeted at the commercial and corporate space, Samsung is introducing two new displays that both have embedded versions of Windows XP. The SyncMaster 400PXn and 460PXn are standalone displays that do not require a computer to operate. In fact, the displays come preloaded with Microsoft Office document players and PowerPoint to create presentations on the fly.

The new screens can be configured into a larger 4x4 grid, using 16 displays. The displays can also be configured using a computer from a remote location. Using a technology Samsung calls MagicNet, a computer from a remote location can control not just one display, but all 16 displays at the same time -- dragging content from one screen to another is no problem. From Samsung's press release:

Upgrades to the 2006 MagicNet enabled displays include an embedded Windows XP operating system, high definition resolution, portrait or landscape orientation modes, and video wall support up to 4x4 displays, all supported by MagicNet. These upgrades extend the capabilities of the displays with more choices for end-users while maintaining ease of use and simplifying the installation process.

Quick specifications:
  • Viewable Image Size: 46"
  • Brightness (Typical): 500 cd/m²
  • Contrast Ratio (Typical): 800:1
  • Viewing Angle (H/V, Typical): 170°/170°
  • Interface: Analog/Digital
  • Max/Native Resolution: 1366x768
  • Available Color(s): Black
  • Special Features: S-Video, PIP, PBP, RS232C, Supports NTSC/PAL/SECAM, Wall Mounting & Pivot, MagicNet - Network Capability
Samsung's senior product marketing manager Mark Picard said "by adding the Windows XP operating system, we have made our displays more power, useful and flexible for the end-user." Both the SyncMaster 400PXn and 460PXn support HD resolutions and come with connections appropriate for commercial uses like airports, malls and restaurants. The new displays are available immediately.

I like the idea of imbeded operating system and office. It makes it so you can mount one of these displays on a wall in a conference room and you have an instant Powerpoint display. However I didn't see in the article if there is a keyboard or USB connections. It would be nice to be able to make this a stand alone display allowing users to read Power Point presentations right off of the Flash Memory, and having a simple wireless presentation mouse to run the presentation.

Now for personal use I would love to see my games on a large screen like that. My 26" LCD doesn't really work that well since my computer doesn't put out enough resolution to run the display properly.

? Just beam the presentation from your iPod wireless dongle...
