Samsung’s latest monitor features a pop-up webcam with Windows Hello support


The Samsung S4 webcam monitor comes with all the home work accessories you could ever need. It has 2W stereo speakers for listening to your coworkers, an HD webcam so they can see you, a microphone so they can hear you and a USB hub to reduce the number of ports needed on a laptop or desktop. The monitor is available now, according to Samsung, and costs $ 319.99 in the United States.

The 24-inch 1080p monitor’s built-in webcam is seamlessly integrated, with a pop-up design that keeps things tidy when you’re not participating in video calls. As an added bonus, the design doubles as a privacy shutter for the webcam to prevent accidental (or malicious) appearances on the camera. It is not automated like many phones. Instead, the webcam is revealed by “pushing it down into the monitor to pop it out,” says Samsung. The webcam is Windows Hello certified, which means it can scan faces to allow quick connections to apps, websites, and Windows itself.

To complete the specifications, a height adjustable stand can be tilted, swiveled and swiveled. The monitor is also VESA compatible to let it work with monitor arms or other mounts. The ports include HDMI 1.4, DisplayPort 1.2 and its refresh rate reaches 75Hz. Besides the United States, the Webcam Monitor S4 is also released in Europe, South Korea and Southeast Asia.
