Samsung unveils thin bezel monitors for video walls

I like using multiple monitors for my computer; they are cool for gaming if you extend the desktop. The big downside to multiple monitor setups is that the bezel around the monitor makes for a gap in the on screen image that can be annoying and get your fragged if you miss something right in front of you.

I have also seen big video walls where the gaps make the video pretty much unviewable. Samsung has announced a new line of large format monitors that are 46-inches in size and have very thin bezels. The monitor bezel is 2.4mm on the right and bottom and 4.3mm on the top and left sides making the space between screens only 7.3mm (we can assume that there has to be some space between each screen, accounting for the extra .5mm of space).

The screens have 700 nits of brightness, a resolution of 1366 x 768, and a contrast ratio of 3000:1. The screens have full PC and video connectivity options as well. The line includes the 460UTn with a built-in Pc running embedded Windows XP and the 460UTn-UD with software for creating a video wall with up to 250 displays from one PC.

    Most big video walls are made with multiple rear-projection displays, which allow for thin bezels because they are just a screen in a frame with the projector behind it. Plasma and LCD direct-view displays have their pixel-addressing connections on the sides on the picture, which is why you can't just take them out of their housing and butt them together.
