Samsung Televisions

Samsung is a large manufacturer of flat-panel and curved TVs. The company sells a wide array of both entry-level sets and cutting-edge television displays. These Samsung sets range from 24 inches to more than 100 inches in size.

How can you determine the picture quality of Samsung's TVs?

Samsung groups its televisions into different series from 5 through 9 as well as the Q Series. Each series is ranked according to the overall quality of the television's picture. For example, the 5 Series is an entry-level television series with a basic picture quality while the 9 Series includes more advanced television sets with premium picture quality. Samsung's Q Series includes a special type of television set that uses quantum dot technology. A quantum dot TV is essentially made up of small particles only a few nanometers in size. Each particle produces pure colours of red, green, and blue. This improves both the brightness and the colour gamut of the set. A typical quantum dot television set can display around 1 billion different colours.

What is a UHD television?

UHD, which stands for ultra-high definition, is a type of digital video format with a higher resolution than a high-definition TV. There are two types of UHD resolutions: 4K and 8K. Each one is named for the approximate number of horizontal pixels on the screen. Whereas a typical 1080p television set has a resolution of 1920x1080p, a 4K Ultra HD screen has a resolution of 3840x2160p, and an 8K screen has a resolution of 7680x4320p. A 4K UHD TV is capable of showing more detail and more clarity than a lower-resolution display such as 720p, 1080p, or 1440p.

What is an OLED television?

OLED stands for organic light-emitting diode. As the name implies, an organic LED television is made up of an organic material that emits its own light. A conventional LCD television set requires an LED backlight to produce additional brightness, which adds to the size and bulk of the set. An organic LED set, by contrast, is thinner and lighter, and because the organic material can produce its own light, the television can produce deeper blacks than an LCD set.

What is HDR technology?

HDR, or high dynamic range, technology is capable of producing a greater range of luminosity. In practical terms, this means that you can more clearly distinguish the transition from dark to light. High dynamic range isn't a type of television set but rather a type of technology that can be applied to any flat-panel set. For example, Samsung sells both HDR LCD sets and OLED sets. High dynamic range technology is also available at multiple types of resolutions, including 1080p and 4K Ultra HD.

Do Samsung television sets incorporate any smart TV features?

Samsung's smart TV feature is available in many different television sets. The smart TV feature turns your television into an entire entertainment hub. It lets you run apps, stream video over the internet, and search and access your favourite content from a single device quickly.
