Samsung has just launched a new monitor focused on hybrid workers and students taking part in distance learning. The 24-inch Webcam Monitor S4 has built-in speakers, microphones, and a stealthily hidden pop-up webcam so users do not need to have a bulky setup full of accessories. The 2-megapixel FHD webcam comes equipped with an infrared camera that acts as a biometric sensor, making it Windows Hello certified. All users need to do is push down on the pop-up camera and it will immediately activate. Samsung claims that the monitor logs in the user and unlocks in as little as two seconds through facial recognition. Windows Hello also allows users to use the feature in lieu of passwords for Windows 10 devices, apps, and websites, similar to Face and Touch ID on Apple Devices.
Samsung’s Webcam Monitor S4 also features built-in 2W dual stereo speakers for an enhanced audio experience. It offers HDMI, DP, D-Sub, and Audio out ports for multiple connectivity options as well. Samsung makes it easy to swivel and pivot the built-in webcam, so users can switch to and from portrait and landscape mode. Most appealing is the webcam’s ability to recess back into the monitor when the user doesn’t need access to it. The user just pushes the webcam into the monitor. Another push activates the webcam to pop up again when needed.
