Samsung have recently announced their first ever foray into 8K in the form of the Q900R QLED 8K complete with 8K AI Upscaling. This is part of Samsung’s long-term vision of leading 8K to the very front of the TV market due to it being the most accurate and life-like screen.
The stunning 8K display will be available in four ultra-large screen sizes (65”, 75”, 82” and 85”). The Samsung QLED 8K TV will also feature several 8K-ready enhancements, including Real 8K Resolution, Q HDR 8K and Quantum Processor 8K, all created to bring 8K-quality images to life.
The Senior Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics, Jongsuk Chu, said “At Samsung, we’ve worked tirelessly over the years to move the industry forward when it comes to premium picture quality, and the introduction of our QLED 8K with 8K AI Upscaling is an integral component as we look to the future of displays.”
The Samsung Q900R, to achieve 8K-quality images, features Real 8K Resolution capable of 4,000 nit peak brightness, which is a standard met by most film studios. This means the QLED TV has four times more pixels than a 4K UHD TV and 16 times more pixels than a full HD TV.
Jongsuk went on to say “We’re thrilled to introduce the Q900R to consumers and are confident that they will experience nothing short of brilliance in color, clarity and sound on our new 8K-capable models.”
Samsung’s proprietary 8K AI Upscaling technology based on artificial intelligence also comes equipped with picture and sound quality to a level compatible with 8K regardless of the original source quality or format. The Q900R also features Direct Full Array Elite for enhanced contrast and precise backlighting control, and also 100% Color Volume, enabling users to witness billions of shades of color for the purest color accuracy to-date.
The Q900R features a slate of new functions that enable consumers to use their TVs differently while maintaining the highest quality in picture and sound. For example, the TV recognizes and analyzes a number of connected entertainment devices like audio devices connected via optical cable with One Remote, then auto switches the TV’s image source and audio output for an optimized viewing experience. Lifestyle features, such as Ambient Mode, have been enhanced to seamlessly blend the TV in the surrounding space by showcasing beautiful images, weather, news and more on the screen. The One Invisible Connection, which comes standard at 5 meters, incorporates the optical cable and power in one seamless cord, giving users more freedom to decide where and how they place the TV. Smart enhancements, such as SmartThings, further add to the Q900R’s ability to provide users with greater access to information and make their lives easier, and the Universal Guide provides personalized recommendations to easily find live and OTT content on TV.
