Samsung has revealed an extraordinary new gaming experience: the Odyssey Ark – the world’s first 55-inch 1000R curved gaming screen which offers cinematic picture quality and immersive sound.
The Odyssey Ark delivers 165Hz refresh rate, 1ms response time and a new rotating cockpit mode.
The 55-inch screen is designed to wrap around your field of view thanks to that extreme curvature.
This is taken even further by Cockpit Mode which allows the screen to rotate with its height adjustable stand as well as tilt and pivot to create an optimal screen environment.
Under the hood is Samsung’s Quantum Matrix Technology which uses Quantum Mini LEDs and 14-bit processing, so gamers have an extraordinary range of both dark and bright scenes with 16,384 black levels for ultra-realistic graphics.
It also has a million to one static contrast ratio to emphasise the details and provide incredible clarity.
The Odyssey Ark can also upscale content to 4K quality thanks to data generated from 20 neural networks.
The Odyssey Ark also uses Samsung’s Matte Display and Sound Dome technology.
Matte Display reduces reflection and glare to remove distractions and help keep you focused in on the game.
On the audio side the Sound Dome technology includes an AI Sound Booster and Dolby Atmos to offer a stunning surround sound experience through the four speakers located at each corner of the screen and the two central woofers.
And that all adds up to a 60W 2.2.2 channel audio experience.
The Odyssey Ark is also customizable that allows gamers to adjust screen size, position and even aspect ratio to provide the perfect gaming setup.
Also included is the solar powered Ark Dial, the exclusive controller for Odyssey Ark to access and control several settings.
Flex Move Screen allows users to change screen size between 55 and 27 inches and adjust the screen position and switch the screen ratio between 16:9, 21:9 and 32:9 all through the Ark Dial
And the Odyssey Ark can also be utilised in the vertical position so viewers are in complete control of their viewing experience.
Game Bar is a powerful control centre which allows users to quickly view and access gaming status and important settings including FPS (frames per second), HDR (high dynamic range) and VRR (variable refresh rate) through to screen ratio and response time.
The Odyssey Ark will be available in Australia in the coming months. A specific release date and pricing is yet to be announced.
