With the arrival of Ultra High Definition (UHD) technology, the needs of consumers are set to change with the introduction of this unbelievable innovation.
“Given the rapid rate at which television and UHD technology is evolving, it is important for consumers to consider whether the set they are buying is upgradable as the technology changes. Samsung UHD TVs provide consumers with the assurance that as the technology evolves, they can access it without having to purchase a new set. The Samsung Evolution Kit enables owners to upgrade their existing UHD model, once an agreed global standard becomes available,” says Lance Berger, Head of Product Marketing TV/AV at Samsung Electronics South Africa.
“The F9000 Samsung range features striking detail, unmatched clarity and vivid picture quality, surpassing current industry standards. The range also features 3D technology as well as built-in Wi-Fi and an embedded camera for staying connected with friends. The fast quad-core processor enables true multitasking capabilities between content and apps for a premium Smart TV experience. When it comes to selecting screen sizes to suit viewing needs, the Samsung UHD TVs are available in the 85 inch, 65 inch and 55 inch screens,” adds Berger.
Here are a few interesting facts that you might not know about UHD:
UHD has become the 'next big thing' with many pay-TV operators already mapping out roadmaps for broadcasting this content. In the US, Europe, and Asia, experiments have been conducted to look at different types of UHD delivery such as over the air, satellite, and streaming via the internet.*
Investment in a UHD TV is a way of future-proofing the entertainment experience. Samsung UHD is the only UHD TV that can be compatible to future UHD standards.
The UHD format also supports faster frame rates, so Springbok test matches and the latest Hollywood action blockbusters will play as if you are watching it in real life. UHD TVs also have extended colours and contrast dynamics that are able to really unlock the visual power of your entertainment experience.
For the gamers, UHD takes it to a totally new level. The new generation of gaming consoles are expected to support this new format, making the living room a new battleground of a digital kind. Suddenly, those first-person shooters really do make you part of the action.
“UHD is a significant leap in how people are used to being entertained through their TV sets. This new format provides viewers with a picture quality that is four times better than what they are currently receiving on their full HD sets. UHD represents content in a way that is truly immersive,” concludes Berger.
