Samsung is presenting the new Odyssey Neo G9 with 57 inches and 7,680 × 2,160 pixels (Dual UHD) and the Odyssey OLED G9 with a 49-inch OLED panel at CES 2023. Both displays use a 32:9 aspect ratio and are curved, the new larger Neo G9 at 1000R and the OLED G9 at 1800R.

Odyssey Neo G9 with more diagonal and pixels

Compared to last year’s model, the Odyssey Neo G9 G95NA, this year’s Odyssey Neo G9 G95NC not only has a larger display from 49 to 57 inches, but also the resolution from 5,120 × 1,440 pixels to 7,680 × 2,160 pixels – it is the first dual Samsung UHD monitor at all. Nothing has changed in the strong curvature of the 1000R compared to the Neo G9 (2021).

DisplayPort 2.1 and mini LED backlight

As with the predecessor, Samsung again relies on the mini-LED technology with Quantum Dot as a backlight, but does not yet provide any information on the number of individual zones in the announcement. The predecessor used local dimming with 2,048 zones. Details on the brightness are also still missing, Samsung only mentions the certification according to DisplayHDR 1000, which at least ensures that the monitor can shine up to 1,000 cd/m² brightly in certain areas. The display has a matte surface to reduce reflections. As with the predecessor, it also offers a variable refresh rate of up to 240 Hz. So far, at least one DisplayPort 2.1 is known for the connections, while the predecessor still uses DisplayPort 1.4.

No price and no date yet

Further technical details are still missing. Since Samsung also gives neither a price nor a date for the Odyssey Neo G9 G95NC, the actual availability should be a little longer in coming.

The Odyssey OLED G9 uses a 49-inch OLED panel

The Odyssey OLED G9 (model name: G95SC) complements the Odyssey monitor series with a model with a 49-inch OLED display, which is less curved with 1800R and the dual QHD resolution of 5,120 × 1,440 pixels known for the displays offers. The aspect ratio of the OLED model is also 32:9. According to Samsung, the response time is 0.1 ms and, like the other Odyssey G9 monitors, the refresh rate is variable and up to 240 Hz fast. Samsung officially states the contrast as 1,000,000:1, although this value is only of a theoretical nature, since OLED displays completely switch off their pixels when displaying black and thus deliver a perfect black value.

Smart Hub for Netflix and Co

The Odyssey OLED G9 also supports apps such as Prime Video, Netflix and YouTube directly via Samsung’s Smart Hub, so that videos, series and films from these platforms can be played without having to run a PC.

Gaming hub for cloud game streaming

The monitor also comes with the Samsung Gaming Hub, an all-in-one game streaming platform that allows users to play games from partners like Xbox and Nvidia GeForce Now over the cloud without the need for a console or games need to be downloaded.

price and availability

For the Odyssey OLED G9 G95SC, Samsung has not announced a date or a price for Germany either. In the past, Odyssey monitors were only available in the summer of the respective year after the announcement at CES. For comparison: The 55-inch Odyssey Ark with mini-LED technology, UHD resolution and 165 Hz cost 3,400 euros when it was launched in August 2022.

Barcelona offers 200,000 euros to the project that reduces the accident rate of motorcycles



Barcelona City Council has launched a challenge for companies, startups, universities and innovation centers to present urban solutions that have as objective reduce motorcycle-related accidents. The chosen projects, which will be applied in the city, are part of the Barcelona Innova Lab Mobility initiative that promotes pilot tests to improve mobility.

Barcelona is one of the European cities with a greater presence of motorcycles and mopeds which represent 33% of the total census of vehicles, and motorcycle drivers account for 86% of the seriously injured, according to the balance of road accidents for the first half of 2022. With the aim of reducing accidents and increasing road safety in the city, these entities have launched this initiative to find and apply innovative solutions on the streets of the city, with the collaboration of the Tomorrow.Mobility show organized by Fira and the EIT Urban Mobility (European Union initiative).

The challenge, launched internationally, counts with an economic endowment of 200,000 euros, which will correspond to a maximum of 80% of the total amount of the winning solutions. The projects can be aimed at resolving the accident rate from behavioral innovation, that is, with solutions related to driving habits, and from technological innovation.

The execution time of the selected proposals is 18 months, of which the pilot phase must be a minimum of six. The proposals must be applicable in a real environment in the short term and must define, in this sense, its deployment space. In addition, it must achieve quantifiable results in relation to the safety of motorcyclists and third parties, which are lasting over time. Its innovative and differential component will also be valued both in the methodologies and resources used and in its execution.

This call is aimed at companies, startups, universities, research centers, technology centers, associations and foundations that have until next March 1 to present their projects. A committee of experts will assess the technical quality of the works presented and will choose the winning solutions that could be applied in Barcelona during that same year. The projects will have international projection with their participation in the next edition of Tomorrow.Mobility, which will be held next November together with the Smart City Expo World Congress at Fira de Barcelona.

Microsoft Teams integrates into Elgato Stream Deck



The Elgato Stream Deck is a very interesting peripheral that we had the opportunity to analyze at the time, and that allows you to create different shortcuts and functions that will be associated to each of the available buttons. It allows you to create different usage profiles, and we can switch between them in a very simple way.

For example, we can assign to a button that directly opens a web page, to run a specific application, to perform a specific action and we can also set specific commands and download completely free applications. It is a very interesting solution, especially for professionals who are dedicated to content creation and streaming.

The point is that the Redmond giant has released an official plugin that allows you to integrate an Elgato Stream Deck device with Microsoft Teams. This plugin was announced by the American company earlier this week, but it was officially launched yesterday. The installation process is quite simple, but we can find more information in the official Microsoft forums.

Once installed, we can use the Elgato Stream Deck to access shortcuts and specific functions that will improve our user experience with Microsoft Teams. Thus, for example, we can blur the background in a video call by pressing a button, and we can also assign other specific functions such as raising and lowering our hand, muting ourselves, recording, and even to show live reactions during meetings.

This new plugin enhances the value of the Elgato Stream Deck, making it a very interesting solution for those who work remotely and have to participate in frequent video calls and events. Obviously it is still an excellent option for content creators and streaming professionals as well. I remind you that it is available in different versions, and that the standard MK.2 model with 15 buttons is priced at €149.99.
