The new 4K SUHD Ultra HD Premium Certified displays offer enhanced performance and features.

Samsung kicks off the new year with an exciting new lineup of 4K SUHD TVs. These latest SUHD TVs will initially consist of the 9 Series and 8 Series which include the KS9800, KS9500, KS9000, KS8500, KS8000, KS850D and KS800D, with screen sizes ranging from 49 to 78-inches.

All of the latest SUHD models improve upon last year’s with primary advancements in color reproduction, higher peak brightness and contrast, updated smart TV platform, and better styling and design.

This year Samsung is calling its color technology Quantum Dot Color which is presented on a cadmium-free, 10-bit panel for more accurate shades of color and true-to-life picture images.

HDR or High Dynamic Range technology is coming on strong with TV manufacturers this year, and Samsung is heavily pushing its version known as HDR1000. HDR, as many of you know, increases picture brightness and contrast. Samsung’s HDR1000 will deliver a minimum of 1000 nits of brightness for a higher level of contrast between light and dark images.

Due to this type of HDR performance, and in addition to ultra HD resolution and wide color spectrum standards, all of Samsung’s 2016 SUHD models are Ultra Premium Certified by the UHD Alliance.

Samsung’s New Ultra Black technology, also known as “moth eyes”, significantly reduces light reflection, further enhancing picture quality with minimal glare. Inspired by nature, Ultra Black absorbs natural light the same way that a moth’s eye enables it to see better at night.

Samsung has improved its smart TV OS with a new Smart Hub designed to provide users with simple access to their favorite content all in one place. Live TV, over the top (OTT), games and even the menu that appears on the home screen of Samsung Smart TVs have all been revamped to allow users to access their favorite programs as soon as they turn on the TV.

Also, Samsung’s SmartThings IoT technology allows for integrated home automation control from SUHD TVs to over 200 SmartThings compatible devices.

Samsung Smart Control remote – The new Samsung Smart TV eliminates the need to juggle multiple remote controls. The Samsung Smart TV will automatically recognize the type of set-top box, game console, OTT box or home theater system that is connected to the TV. This allows users to control all of the external devices with the Smart Control remote — with no setup required.

As a side note, none of this year’s SUHD models will have 3D capability. All models have edge-lit LED illuminated panel designs and a One Connect Mini box for connectivity.

Samsung will also be releasing non-SUHD models available in the 7 Series and 6 Series. These 4K UHD TVs will consist of the KU7500, KU7000, KU6500, KU6300 and KU6290 with screen sizes ranging from 40 to 70-inches.

Features will include HDR Premium capability, Active Crystal Color (7 Series) for better color reproduction, edge-lit LED backlighting and Simplified Smart TV Experience which allows for easy switching between content via cable and streaming sources.

The 7 and 6 series are not Ultra Premium Certified.
