IFA 2007 – Samsung’s new SyncMaster 225UW with integrated webcam

Chris Scott Barr - Aug 30, 2007

Have you ever wondered if your monitor was actually watching you? If so, you’re probably just paranoid. However, Samsung recently unveiled their newest SyncMaster 225UW monitor with a built-in webcam and headphone jack.

Samsung’s latest product isn’t a first in the industry, Apple has been putting webcams in their iMacs for a little while now, and they are commonplace in most laptops. This does make it one of the few stand-alone monitors on the market to feature a built-in webcam. Personally, I think it’s a good idea, as that just makes one less thing for people to have cluttering up their desks.

The 225UW is a 22-inch monitor that will have a 2MP webcam, 700:1 contrast ratio and a 5ms response time. Look for it on sale soon in Europe for a little over $600 soon.
