To fully enjoy the game, you need not only a fast platform but also a large, high-quality screen that will allow you to immerse yourself in the gameplay as much as possible. Samsung has long been developing monitors capable of revealing the smallest details of game worlds, but with the Odyssey Ark model, it takes gaming to a completely different level. We have collected 5 main technologies that make the monitor a unique solution for players who want to get the most immersive gaming experience and fine-tuning options.
55-inch screen with 1000R curvature
The Samsung Odyssey Ark monitor has a 55-inch matte curved screen with a curvature of 1000R, which allows it to cover the entire field of vision of the user and provide an incredible level of immersion in the gameplay.
The fact is that the arc radius of the 1000R monitor most closely matches the curvature of the human field of vision. At the same time, due to natural focusing, the eyes are strained much less than when playing on a flat screen. The curvature of the 1000R also allows you to reduce the strain on your neck, because you don’t have to turn your head as often to cover the entire screen.
Thanks to the curved display, Samsung Odyssey Ark is perfect for games of any genre, and especially for shooters and simulators, in which a massive screen that covers the entire field of view allows you to immerse yourself as much as possible in game world.
Ultra-fast Quantum Mini-LED matrix
A curved screen with a diagonal of 55 inches and a resolution of 4K (3840×2160 dots) is not the only advantage of the Samsung Odyssey Ark monitor, because it received a revolutionary Quantum Mini-LED matrix with 1056 local dimming zones, making its contrast ratio reach 1,000,000:1. In addition, the mini LED backlight can reach a brightness of 600 nits for an all-white window, and a peak of 1300 nits for individual parts of the panel, providing support for games in HDR 10+. As a result, you get deep blacks as well as bright and rich colors with a matrix that covers 95% of the DCI-P3 color space.
In addition to high image quality, the Samsung Odyssey Ark display provides incredible clarity in the most dynamic games thanks to a super-fast matrix with a refresh rate of 165 Hz, a response time of only 1 ms and support for AMD Freesync Premium Pro technology. The latter allows you to remove image artifacts, due to the fact that the display refresh rate is synchronized with the frame rate of a compatible graphics card, so the user will not experience lags between input and the reaction of the game on the screen.
Cockpit Mode and Eclipse Lighting
The 55-inch diagonal and high resolution allow you to fit an incredible amount of information on the Samsung Odyssey Ark screen, but different types of content and even different games require more flexibility.
In order to provide users with maximum opportunities, Samsung engineers implemented Cockpit Mode in Odyssey Ark, which allows you to rotate the screen, changing the aspect ratio from 16:9 to 9:16. In this way, you can get a working space similar to three 27-inch displays placed on top of each other.
Cockpit Mode brings a completely new experience to many games, just imagine the cockpit of an airplane in Microsoft Flight Simulator on a 55-inch curved screen placed in portrait mode and also with the ability to adjust the angle of inclination. The dynamic side illumination of Eclipse Lighting, which adjusts to the colors of the images, helps to immerse even more in the game world in this mode on the monitor and visually expands it.
Cockpit Mode is also ideal for viewing vertical videos on TikTok, Instagram Reels and YouTube Shorts. And placing three windows on top of each other will allow you to simultaneously play, conduct a game stream and view additional information without switching between different windows.
Sound Dome immersive sound
For maximum immersion in the game, it is important to have not only a high-quality picture, but also sound, so Samsung Odyssey Ark has a built-in sound system with 2.2.2-channel sound. Four high-frequency speakers in the corners of the screen and two low-frequency speakers in the center provide 60 W of three-dimensional sound that teleports you inside the game world thanks to the support of AI Sound Booster and Dolby Atmos technologies.
Thanks to this approach, Samsung Odyssey Ark easily turns into a home theater and music center with sound at the level of individual advanced soundbars. The versatility of the model makes it an ideal device for a home media center.
Ark Dial Controller
Samsung Odyssey Ark comes with a remote control and a completely unique Ark Dial controller, which allows you to instantly adjust the monitor to your needs.
Starting with controlling the size of the screen through the Flex Move feature, for example if you decide to run an old game or a game with 8-bit graphics that does not need the full area of the 55-inch screen. Ark Dial will allow you to select the desired screen size and aspect ratio with just a few clicks.
In addition, the controller allows you to manage a lot of windows, placing two, three, four or even five screens side by side. Moreover, the user can create a custom template to display a custom number of screens in the desired order.
Another feature of the Ark Dial is the ability to change the image settings in the game through the Game Bar on the fly, switching the refresh rate, HDR, aspect ratio and image zoom, with simple movements of the controller wheel.
Thanks to Samsung Odyssey Ark, gaming reaches a new level, you no longer need several separate monitors and a separate soundbar, all this is now really available in one universal device. You can learn more about Odyssey Ark and choose a convenient store for purchase on the official Samsung website.
