Samsung’s New QLED Quantum Dot 4K Ultra HD TVs
See Brighter, more Colorful Picture Images with Samsung’s New OLED 2017 Lineup
Samsung revealed its latest quantum dot TV technology at CES 2017 in their upcoming QLED 4K series lineup which will include the Q9, Q8 and Q7 TVs. QLED, as Samsung calls it, is not to be confused with OLED TVs which use emissive/self illuminating LEDs to display pictures images. QLED is actually an improvement of quantum dot technology, according to Samsung.
The improvement focuses on the size and perfect roundness of the quantum dot shape to achieve greater brightness, better wide angle viewing and larger color depth range.
To achieve this, Samsung uses new metal quantum dot material to improve color range to the point that their new QLED TVs will be able to display 100 percent of the DCI-P3 color space.
The new QLED models are also brighter with a peak luminance of 1,500 to 2,000 nits; by comparison, last year’s SUHD models peaked at 1,000 nits. This increased peak luminance output will have no impact on accurate color reproduction, according to Samsung.
Samsung has made some unique aesthetic changes with the QLED series and are as follows:
The improvements to design and usability in the QLED TV series include a single, transparent ‘Invisible Connection’ cable, through which all of the peripheral devices can be gathered and connected to the TV. This is in addition to the ‘No-gap wall-mount’, which makes it quick and easy to affix the TV flush against the wall. Or, for those who prefer not to mount the TV, Samsung is offering two new stands designed to elevate and showcase the QLED TVs as beautiful home accessories all by themselves. Consumers can choose either the ‘Studio Stand’, which resembles an easel with a painting, or the sleek ‘Gravity Stand’, which when attached to the TV, resembles a contemporary sculpture. – Source: Samsung
