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

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

[adrotate group=”2″]

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.

Samsung has also introduced a simple solution to eliminate cable clutter, called the One Invisible Connection, which integrates power cables and data lines that were previously separated to allow the TVs to harmonise with their surrounding aesthetic. Available up to 15 meters, it frees consumers from having to place their TV near data or power outlets.

Q Smart: Value Beyond Investment

The new QLED TVs are designed to seamlessly connect with SmartThings-compatible devices to offer users even greater control over their home’s smart technology. In addition, users can access a variety of apps on the QLED TVs that they can enjoy at any time through one intuitive menu.

Samsung Unveils The Secret To Identifying Real 4K TVs

30 November 2016 – These days, a TV is no longer just a device to watch your favourite movies and variety shows. It is the protagonist of a living space, one that sets the tone of the room, displaying the way of life of the home owner. A premium, classy aura radiates from the beautiful bezel-less curved design of Samsung’s 2016 SUHD TV, allowing it to fit elegantly in any space of the room.

On top of its exclusive look and feel, the Samsung SUHD TV with Quantum dot display provides true to life picture quality, and is getting praises from all around the room for its ability to display even the smallest details on its screen. Its excellent picture quality has awarded the Samsung latest TV its 4K certification.

 

What Exactly is a 4K TVs?

UHD TVs, also known as 4K have four times the amount of pixels in Full HD TVs, allowing them to display the same image with even more detail and clarity. While 4K UHD TVs are quickly growing in the global TV market, 3K TVs being marketed as 4K TVs are also appearing, with lower picture quality.

A real 4K UHD TV has RGB (red, green and blue) sub pixels with consistent brightness and realistic colours while a 3K TV’s resolution is decreased by 25% as some of its RGB pixels have been replaced by white pixels, reducing its brightness and distorting the colour. In other words, a real 4K UHD TV is like freshly squeezed orange juice, while the 3K TV is orange juice diluted with water.

3K TVs, also known as RGBW TVs, are being displayed as having the same technology as 4K TVs in retail stores. This may be slightly tricky to consumers planning to purchase a real 4K UHD TV. However, there is a simple solution to that!

[adrotate banner=”4″]

Simply pause the content on a TV and snap a photo on a spot with a white background. Upon zooming in on the photo, you’ll find that only red, green and blue pixels can be seen on the real 4K TV. A 3K TV, however, will show white pixels on top of the RGB pixels.

Samsung Electronics has led the global TV market for ten years based on the philosophy that the very basics of a TV is the ability to offer the best picture quality possible to viewers. This belief will be held as the highest value for Samsung TVs, even when future technologies evolve from 4K, 8K and beyond.

So what are you waiting for? Samsung’s Unbox the Wonders of Home campaign offers great rebates and free gifts upon purchase of selected Samsung TVs. Head over to the nearest Samsung Brand Store and selected authorized retail outlets to test out the real 4K quality of the Samsung UHD TV or visit Samsung’s online store at Lazada Malaysia to unbox the wonders of your home from your home!

Samsung : Buying The Right TV For The New Year

For most of us, the television is the most entertaining gadget in our homes. It is how we watch our favourite content—sports, movies, serial dramas, gaming and more—comfortably on the sofa, together with friends and family. TV is indeed more than just another device. It is where the whole family bonds while experiencing exciting TV moments together.

With the year fast reaching its tail end and with great discounts and super deals enticing consumers to buy a new TV set, it is easy for one to swipe their credit card and wheel in a new TV for their home. But how many of us really do know how to select the ideal TV that suits our needs and our homes? As one of the leaders in TV display, Samsung puts together a guide to purchasing the right TV for you.

To kick things off, let’s take a look at an important part of TV—choosing the right TV size for your home. While there are many features and functions you should keep in mind when choosing your TV, the viewing distance and the TV’s resolution quality will suggest the best screen size.

 

Size and Viewing Distance

Everyone loves the impressive look and immersive viewing experience of a big screen TV. But going too big for a room can be overwhelming. So what’s the right screen size?

A common industry recommendation for the best-sized Full HD TV for a room is to take the distance from the TV to the sofa in meters and multiply by 25 to get the screen size in inches. For example, a TV that sits two meters from the sofa should be 50 inches. If the TV is three meters from the sofa, then it should be 75 inches.

For the UHDTV, because of its superior image quality and detail, one should multiply the distance by 39. A TV that is just two meters from the sofa can be as large as 78 inches.

UHD refers to Ultra High Definition (also known as 4K), the new breed of TV that packs a pixel count four times denser than conventional Full HD TVs. Whereas Full HD screens have 1,920 pixels by 1,080 pixels, UHD jumps to 3,840 pixels by 2,160 pixels, for stunningly clear images. Therefore, you can enjoy UHD TVs that are larger than Full HD TVs, from the same distance, without ever noticing the individual pixels or worrying about eye strain.

What’s the best distance to sit from your TV? The international standards organization ITU-R suggests that for a 50 inch Full HD TV, the screen is best viewed from between two meters and just under three meters. Closer than two meters, however, you either need to choose a smaller TV or upgrade to UHD, otherwise you could begin to feel some discomfort. A 50 inch UHD screen can be used comfortably from as close as a meter away. For a big 85 inch UHD TV, the sweet spot is between 1.6 meters and about 3.3 meters.

With a variety of 39 TV models, ranging in size from 32 inches all the way up to 88 inches, plus dozens of options in Full HD, UHD and Smart TVs, Samsung Electronics has a TV that fits just right for your lifestyles.

Now that we got the size and viewing distance covered, how are we going to display it? Should it be mounted on the wall or should it stand elegantly?

In the days of Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) televisions, how to display a TV in the home was not much of a choice. CRT TVs were too bulky and heavy to go anywhere but on a solid surface, like a table or a big, wooden wall unit.

Today’s TVs are bigger than ever, but they are also incredibly thin and much lighter than CRTs, giving consumers more options on how to display their crystal-clear screens. Let’s look at wall-mounted TVs versus TV stands, and how consumers can determine the choice that is right for them.

 

Wall-Mount or Stand

Each choice for setting up a TV has good and bad points, and it is up to each person to choose the option that works best for their home setting. Stands have the advantage of organization and design. They need to be set down on a flat surface, like a wall unit or a table, making the TV like a piece of furniture, too. Stands are also relatively easier to move, in case you want to place your TV in a different location.

Plus, using a stand together with furniture makes it easier to organize all the cables that connect to the TV and related equipment (like a cable TV set-top box or a Blu-ray player), arranging them so they are out of sight and tidy. However, using a stand does mean the TV will take up more space, reversing some of the benefits of that ultra-thin screen.

Wall-mounting a TV, on the other hand, can save a lot of space in a room, making it a good choice for designing an interior that is more open. By being installed on the wall, the TV is still quite visible from the sofa or other favourite location, but it is up and away from the flow of the room. Even curved TVs can be mounted on the wall.

In fact, today’s curved TVs made by Samsung Electronics have been designed with their complete appearance in mind, from 360 degrees. The bezel wraps around the TV, appearing straight from the front, but with the sides meeting the rear of the TV seamlessly in a restrained curve. The back of the TV has a clean and simple design made of elegant black metal. No matter where you set it up, a Samsung curved TV should look stylish and sharp from all angles.

[adrotate banner=”4″]But while wall-mounted TVs are popular nowadays, they do have their drawbacks. Not all walls can support a large TV—some are too weak, while other materials, like stone or slate, cannot be easily drilled into. Also, once a TV is mounted on the wall, it is fixed there and can only be swivelled if you want to change viewing direction.

Whether a consumer chooses to put their TV on a stand or mounted on the wall, today’s TVs offer a better viewing experience than ever. By selecting the TV mounting that is right for them, a consumer can make that experience even better.

Now that we’ve gone through a detailed and informative guide on how to choose your next TV, do remember to exercise these hot tips the next time you go TV-shopping. In the spirit of giving and the joy of gifting this Christmas and upcoming New Year, Samsung Malaysia Electronics is extending fantastic deals on its range of Smart TVs and home theatre systems for Malaysian worldwide. So do head on over to your nearest Samsung brand store and enjoy these festive deals!

Samsung wishes you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
