The Frame (2020) by Samsung : What You Need To Know!

Samsung summarises The Frame 2020’s KSP (key selling point) very simply – TV when it’s on. Art when it’s off.

Frame-look Design

The Frame is designed with an elegant, modern frame-look design that will blend in with your decor.

Samsung also offers a choice of four bezel colours to customise The Frame 2020. They are locked in place by magnets, so it’s really easy to swap them out whenever the need arises.

Thanks to Samsung Quantum Dot technology, The Frame 2020 delivers a full 100% DCI-P3 colour volume, as certified by Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker (VDE).

It also boasts Dual LED technology to increase contrast based on backlight temperature for optimal colour tone.

No Gap Wall-Mount

Mounting on the wall using the Samsung No Gap Wall-Mount lets it look like a real work of art. And yet, it allows you to tilt it sideways, forwards or backwards.

One Invisible Connection

The Frame 2020 maintains its clean lines thanks to the One Invisible Connection, which eradicates the usual cable mess by using a single, thin almost invisible cable to connect to the One Connect Box.

Brightness + Motion Sensors

The Frame 2020 uses its brightness sensor to automatically optimise its brightness and colour tone for a natural look, irrespective of the lighting conditions.

Its motion sensor lets it detect your presence, to display artwork whenever you are in the room. And when you leave, it turns off to save electricity.

Adaptive Voice Amplifier (AVA)

The Frame 2020 monitors ambient noise levels in real-time to detect when they may interfere with your enjoyment.

When it gets noisy, it will isolate, boost and clarify voices or dialogue playing on the TV, so you won’t miss a thing.

Smart Connectivity

This allows you to connect your smartphone or tablet to it, mirroring its display or streaming content from it.

You can control it using either the One Remote Control, or the SmartThings app, or by Bixby voice commands.

Bezel-less Samsung Micro LED Displays Revealed!

At CES 2019, Samsung revealed their new Micro LED technology, which were introduced in a new 75-inch TV display, a 219-inch The Wall, and even a modular Micro LED display!

The New Samsung Micro LED TV Displays

The new Samsung Micro LED panels are built from microscopic inorganic LED chips that individually emit red, green and blue light. This allows them to deliver a new level of picture quality.

219-inch The Wall

The Micro LED technology was first introduced at CES 2018, in the 146-inch The Wall model. This year, Samsung showcase a whopping 219-inch The Wall model!

75-inch 4K Micro LED TV

In addition, by narrowing the gap between the microscopic LED chips, they were able to create a 75-inch 4K Micro LED TV!

Modular Micro LED Display

Thanks to the modular nature of Micro LED, users can expand their display to any size they desire, even irregular 9×3, 1×7 or 5×1 screen sizes.

The Samsung Micro LED technology also optimises the content no matter the size and shape of the screen. Even when adding more modules, Samsung Micro LED displays can scale to increase the resolution — all while keeping the pixel density constant.

Additionally, Micro LED can support everything from the standard 16:9 content, to 21:9 widescreen films, to unconventional aspect ratios like 32:9, or even 1:1 – without having to make any compromises in its picture quality.

Finally, because Micro LED displays are bezel-free, there are no borders between modules – even when you add more. The result is a seamless, infinity pool effect that allows the display to blend into any environment.

The 2018 QLED TV Year-End Price + Promotion Revealed!

Samsung revealed the 2018 QLED TV range in March 2018, promising unrivalled viewing experience without distractions. They recently invited us to a refresher briefing on the 2018 QLED TV range, and their year-end price and promotions. Here are the full details!

 

The 2018 QLED TV Media Briefing

Vincent Lee, Head of AV TV, Samsung Consumer Electronics, explains the key features of the 2018 QLED TV series.

Q Picture : Purest Pictures Without Distractions

To create even more stunning picture quality with pristine contrast, the TVs feature the new Direct Full Array which uses a panel with zones of smartly controlled backlighting that adjust automatically to deliver deep blacks and pure whites. This reduces blooming and halo effects and enables deeper contrast, with inky blacks and brilliant whites.

Advanced Anti-reflection technology ensures that the TVs’ spectacular picture quality can be enjoyed from almost any angle, and also helps boost contrast. Aligned with the new products, which include models wider than 55 inches, Q Engine technology automatically upscales on-screen content to UHD levels to further enhance viewers’ immersion.

Q Style: Spend Time Watching, Not Searching

Samsung’s 2018 QLED TVs’ style changes based on innovative technologies are also noticeable. Magic Screen is an energy-saving function that allows the TV to elegantly display images as well as real-time information such as the weather or news. For wall-mounted TVs,

Magic Screen can mimic the pattern on the wall behind the TV to create an astonishing visual effect in which the TV blends seamlessly into the wall.

The Sony A9F MASTER Series 4K HDR OLED TV Revealed!

Sony today announced the new Sony A9F MASTER Series 4K HDR OLED TV. Let’s take a look at their product briefing, and a quick tour of the 65-inch and 55-inch Sony A9F MASTER Series models!

 

The Sony A9F MASTER Series

The Sony A9F is part of the MASTER Series  – a title Sony reserves exclusively for its highest picture quality TV models. Sony claims the MASTER Series provides picture quality approaching that of a professional-grade monitor in a motion picture production studio.

Having developed and followed a very strict set of product evaluation criteria by its most experienced picture quality engineers, Sony is confident that their flagship MASTER Series will deliver the highest quality picture possible in a home setting.

Picture Processor X1 Ultimate

The Sony A9F MASTER Series models come equipped with a newly-developed, next-generation Picture Processor X1 Ultimate. This processor can intelligently detect and analyse each object in the picture through Sony’s new Object-based Super Resolution for exceptional accuracy and detail.

The Object-based HDR remaster has also been updated, and now allows each object to be remastered individually for better depth, accurate texture and all-in-all more realistic picture.

Netflix-Calibrated Mode

In conjunction with Netflix, Sony is now introducing Netflix Calibrated Mode. This unique feature was specially developed to mirror the same picture quality as a studio evaluation master for television in order to preserve the artists’ creative vision and intent.

By accessing one simple menu setting, Netflix Calibrated Mode faithfully reproduces the visuals that help bring a story to life, and entertainment enthusiasts can now enjoy this experience when watching their favorite TV series, films, documentaries and more on Netflix.

CalMAN-Ready

The Sony A9F MASTER Series is ready for CalMAN, the industry-leading display calibration software from Portrait Displays. CalMAN is widely used by professionals as a tool to ensure quality control of the strict requirements demanded by content creators in broadcast, production, and post-production.

This features the CalMAN calibration software to be installed on a PC, a pattern generator, a colorimeter or spectrophotometer, and the CalMAN for BRAVIA app installed. But using it eliminates the struggle of maintaining the picture quality throughout the life of the TV.

Pixel Contrast Booster

The Sony A9F MASTER Series TV comes with the Pixel Contrast Booster, which is Sony’s original panel controller for OLED. It maximises the dynamic range by widening the area of color reproduction at high brightness. Pictures are enhanced with extra detail and texture.

Acoustic Surface Audio+

The Sony A9F TV boasts the new Acoustic Surface Audio+ technology.

[adrotate group=”2″]

Acoustic Surface was first introduced last year with the Sony A1 series followed by the Sony A8F this year. The improved Acoustic Surface Audio+ gets an additional actuator in the center of the screen and an extra subwoofer channel, which delivers  a 3.2 channel sound system.

The additional center actuator acts just like center speakers hidden behind an AT (acoustically transparent) screen which are found in movie theaters. With the three actuators and two subwoofers facing sideways, the Sony A9F creates a rich sound field that greatly enhances the viewing experience.

The Sony A9F asp has a TV Center Speaker Mode that allows the Acoustic Surface Audio+ to be used as the center speaker of a home theater system.
