Samsung Electronics announced today that Odyssey Ark, the world’s first 55-inch 1000R curved gaming screen, is now available everywhere. This adds a completely new shape to the Odyssey line, which is already the best in its field. The huge display has a refresh rate of 165Hz, a response time (GtG) of 1ms, a brand-new mode called Cockpit Mode, and an exclusive controller called the Ark Dial. Together, these features make it the best way to see the world of gaming and give you a level of immersion that is unmatched.
We’re proud to unveil the Odyssey Ark, a revolutionary new gaming monitor. Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, Hyesung Ha, remarked, “This 55-inch 1000R curved gaming panel combines premium, cinematic picture quality, immersive surround sound, and a very flexible interface that gamers increasingly desire.” Odyssey Ark provides gamers with access to a whole new world of games that will raise the bar for the whole gaming industry.
The innovative Odyssey Ark is made to give you amazing cinematic experiences, better gaming performance, and an interface that gives you the most freedom possible. The Odyssey Ark was first shown at the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year, where it won a CES Innovation Award.
A new movie experience that will please all of your senses
The 1000R curvature of the 55-inch screen makes it wrap around the user’s field of view, filling their peripheral vision. This is made clearer by Cockpit Mode, which lets the screen rotate with HAS (Height Adjustable Stand), tilt, and pivot for an optimal screen environment that creates a new feeling of being immersed in multiple worlds.
Samsung’s Quantum Matrix Technology is used in the Odyssey Ark. It uses Quantum Mini LEDs, which allow the LEDs to be controlled in a very fine and precise way. With the new 14-bit processing and sophisticated lighting control technology, gamers can see both dark and bright scenes, with 16,384 levels of black for graphics that look very real.
A million-to-one static contrast ratio makes it easy to see even the smallest details. Plus, the Neural Quantum Processor Ultra takes the quality of content to a whole new level by using data from 20 neural networks to improve every visual detail and upscale content to a resolution of up to 4K.
The Odyssey Ark uses Samsung’s Matte Display and Sound Dome Technology to give you the best movie experience possible. The Matte Display protects against both glare and reflection, making it easier for users to stay focused on what’s in front of them. The Odyssey Ark’s “Sound Dome Tech,” which includes AI Sound Booster and Dolby Atmos to improve the surround sound experience, makes for great sound. There are four speakers, one in each corner, and two woofers in the middle. A 60W 2.2.2 channel with the lowest 45Hz notes of any gaming screen or gaming soundbar makes for a realistic and rich sound.
Players get the best gaming performance possible
Along with a refresh rate of 165Hz, the Odyssey Ark has a 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution with a 1ms response time (GtG) and AMD FreeSync Premium Pro. This makes the image on the screen as accurate as possible and gives gamers an edge in fast-paced games. The Odyssey Ark also has great gaming performance, and with the Samsung Gaming Hub, gamers can enjoy the best of all their games in one place. 2 Samsung Gaming Hub is an all-in-one platform for finding and streaming games. It works with partners like Xbox, NVIDIA GeForce NOW, Google Stadia, Utomik, and Amazon Luna to help players find and play games they love.
The Samsung Gaming Hub gives you instant access to the popular console and PC games as well as the best streaming services. Users can go wherever they want in the game world because they don’t need to download anything or save anything.
Flexible interface to find the best settings for victory
More and more, gamers want games that they can customize and make their own. The Odyssey Ark has a lot of cool features that let gamers change the size, position, and even aspect ratio of their screens for the best gaming setup. First, the Odyssey Ark’s only controller, the Ark Dial, which is powered by the sun, can quickly and easily change settings like the Flex Move Screen, MultiView, Quick Settings, and Game Bar.
Users can change the screen size from 55 inches to 27 inches, move the screen, and change the screen ratio between 16:9, 21:9, and 32:9 with just one touch of the Ark Dial. This freedom applies not only to the horizontal position but also to the vertical one, giving users even more control over how they watch. Users can get the most out of the large screen with MultiView, which lets them show up to four screens at once in horizontal mode and three in cockpit mode. This gets rid of the need for multiple monitors, so gamers can play in a less cluttered environment.
Game Bar3 is a powerful tool that lets gamers check their game status quickly and easily and change important settings without leaving the game screen. Game Bar puts the player in charge and on the path to victory by letting them check FPS, HDR, and VRR and change settings like screen ratio, response time, and Game Picture mode.
The Ark Dial has a solar panel and can also be charged through a USB Type-C port. This means that it doesn’t need any disposable batteries.
