The Samsung NC190 ($698) and NC240 ($815) are powered by Tera 1100 PCoIP processor and get 64MB XDR and 128MB XDR memory respectively. The former features 1280×1024 resolution, 250cd/m2 brightness while the NC240 offers 1920×1080 Full HD resolution and 300cd/m2 brightness. They both have a contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a response time of 5ms. VGA input, DVI output and 10/100/1000 RJ45 Ethernet port are provided. The NC190 is available for just $466.11 at Amazon.com.
Samsung’s new PC-over-IP monitors offers “exceptional security” as well:
Data is highly secure in the NC190 / NC240 environment. No data leaves the remote host or datacenter, ensuring that individual workstations cannot be hacked or infected with viruses or spyware. All images transmitted to the displays are encrypted, providing a highly secure connection. Additionally, USB authentication ensures that no unauthorized devices can be attached to the system. This makes them ideal for use in environments such as finance, government and military.
