Starting Work on the Samsung UD970

Last year I started checking out at work the Samsung UD970 32” UHD (3840 x 2160) monitor. Sick color accuracy – 4K footage looking like a dream!  How pumped was I to be asked to participate in Samsung’s Details At Work program! I’m kicking the tires on the monitor and seeing just how close I can get into these pictures.

The pictures on screen?  75” wide by 4 feet high.  Those are multiple Nikon D800 files up there.  On the left is the UD970 at 100 percent, eeking out the details in the church.

As I play with this thing more, i’ll let you know how it goes! If you have any questions or want to check it on the show, lemme know!


  1. Happy Editing my friend. Looking forward to your thoughts on this screen.
    Hope all is well

  2. Not a question about this article, but would like to hear any update you may have on using the Fuji XT-1 and X lenses.

  3. Hi RC,

    A beautiful set-up, and it looks very involving.

    I was wondering what computer / graphics card you are using to drive the display. Only last week was I looking over the specs of my 17″ MacBook Pro with DisplayPort to realize it isn’t even close to the task of driving one of these monitors.
