Samsung Electronics Australia has introduced the Odyssey Ark 2nd Gen Curved UHD Gaming Monitor (G97NC), delivering 4K picture quality, 1,000R curvature, a Matte Display and Quantum Matrix technology to increase connectivity and compatibility.

Samsung Australia senior director of display and brand memory, Phil Gaut said, “We are thrilled to bring these new enhancements to the Odyssey Ark, which assist in creating the ultimate entertainment screen for premium gaming experiences.

“The new features come from Samsung’s mission to meet the dynamic needs of the gaming community, in which ground-breaking design, performance and personalisation is optimised to inspire a new way of gaming.”

First launched in 2022, the Odyssey Ark (G97NB) became the world’s first 55-inch 1,000R curved gaming screen. Significant upgrades including the new Multi View lets users see input from up to four devices at once or three in Cockpit mode.

Flex Move Screen allows users to change the screen size from 55- to 27-inch, moving the position of the games and allowing gamers to adjust the ratio from 16:9 to 21:9 or 32:9. This can be controlled by the Ark Dial.

The Odyssey Ark utilises Samsung’s Matte Display for anti-glare protection, reducing glare by absorbing light, helping minimise distractions. Sound Dome technology blends an AI Sound Booster and Dolby Atmos to help enhance the sound experience with four speakers at each corner, and two central woofers, resulting in r sound which totals 60 watts.

The 165Hz refresh rate brings together a 4K (3,840×2,160) resolution featuring 1ms response time (GtG) with AMD FreeSync Premium Pro, helping maximise on-screen accuracy.

Through a Wi-Fi connection, users can enjoy Smart TV functionality with access to popular streaming apps, through Samsung Gaming Hub, making it easy for gamers to search, stream, and enjoy content from leading partners with no additional hardware or downloads needed.

Support for external devices with A DP (DisplayPort) 1.4 has been added to the Odyssey Ark’s three HDMI ports to increase compatibility and the KVM Switch, making the Odyssey Ark a single command station for a multitasking experience across multiple devices.

The Samsung Odyssey Ark 2nd Gen is available via the Samsung online store for RRP $3,999.
