SAMSUNG Unveils New-concept Web Monitor at CeBIT 2001

(Hanover, March 22-28 2001) - People no longer have to go to the trouble of using something as complex as a personal computer to surf the web. The Web monitor and Web keyboard from Samsung Electronics have made their debut, along with other future-oriented products, at the CeBIT show, which opened in Hanover, Germany in March. The new Samsung products, with dedicated Internet network modules built in, can be connected to any telephone line or network cable to get online access, anytime and anyplace.

The Web monitor also has TV functions, so the user can watch high-definition TV broadcasts or DVD recordings. It is available in a 15" color display tube model and a TFT-LCD model. Samsung, which holds the largest share of the world monitor market, boasts exceptional product quality, and the Web monitor is no exception. The Web pages brought up on the screen are vivid. The TFT-LCD Web monitor is thin and easily to move around, making it an excellent replacement for bulky TVs with small screens. Indeed, the new Samsung product can be set up easily in one's kitchen, bedroom, living room or study.

The Web keyboard is a light, user-friendly device that comes with a mouse and has Web functions built in. Online access is possible anywhere the user can plug it into a monitor, network or modem. The Web keyboard is compatible with all monitor makes, provided they are 14 inches or larger.
Samsung's Web monitor and Web keyboard support the client functions of Microsoft Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP), so they can be used as Windows-based terminals. When linked with a server in an office environment, they can perform server applications.

Once home network lineups hit the market, Samsung's new Web products will support various network links such as modems, LANs, and the home phone line network alliances. The result will be home networks that perform household tasks with the simple click of a button. The tasks in question include identifying visitors at the front door, controlling audio/video components, adjusting interior air temperature, locking or unlocking doors and windows and even answering the telephone.

Since a PC terminal is not required, anyone can use the Web monitor or Web keyboard. Web surfing is possible without having computer skills or such hardware as a high-capacity hard disc drive, CD-ROM drive or floppy disc drive.

Samsung Electronics plans to launch its Web monitor and Web keyboard first in the Americas, staring in the third quarter of this year.
