When watching your favourite television show – be it a nature documentary, cooking show or sporting event – close is never close enough. Enter Samsung’s curved QLED television with premium 4K UHD and sleek design, drawing you into an alternate reality of colour and detail you have not experienced before.
The 75-inch screen makes use of Samsung’s integrated Quantum Dot technology which improves luminous efficiency and allows you to enjoy a movie theatre experience in the comfort of your own home.
“Imagine trying to make out why the crowd is cheering as the afternoon sun glares onto your television screen while the Springboks are beating Argentina; envision the disappointment you feel at sharing a cinematic marvel such as Avatar with your children but not experiencing the colour intensity as you did in the movie theatre; or think of the frustration you experience at night while watching a horror movie with your friends and not being able to make out what is happening in the night scenes. Whether viewing conditions are optimum, in bright daylight or an uncomfortably dark scene, QLED technology never disappoints, ensuring the colour remains bright and true,” says Mike van Lier, Director: Consumer Electronics at Samsung South Africa.
“By achieving between 1 500 and 2 000 nits, more light is pushed through the Quantum Dots, thereby intensifying the colour volume. The increase in brightness escalates the vividness of the picture without changing the colour. Therefore, scarlet remains scarlet instead of fading to pink and turquoise stays turquoise. This helps maximise the dynamic colours High Dynamic Range technology brings.”
QLED televisions offer outstanding colour volume, pinpoint colour accuracy, improved brightness and the deepest blacks on an active display. These attributes equate to picture quality unlike any other. With a 3840 x 2160 resolution, this innovation turns light into perfect colour, bringing every shade to life and with excellent display, the elevated brightness of the Samsung QLED increases vividness and maintains colour integrity, expressing a tremendous spectrum of colours.
The stylish Samsung QLED not only blends into your home environment but elevates your décor, leaving no gap between the wall mount and the actual unit. To make it a standalone, minimalist feature, simply place it on a studio stand or pair it with a classy piece of furniture using a gravity stand.
The QLED provides uncluttered simplicity, with an invisible connection leading out of the television to a dedicated one connect box which connects all your other devices to this television.
“The picture is spectacular, the style is bold and the operation intuitive. It speaks to the innovation and class consumers have come to expect from Samsung,” concludes Van Lier.
QLED TV FAQs
The Samsung range of QLED TVs have revolutionised television viewing. But consumers have some questions about what’s behind the astounding quality and brilliant colours.
What is a Quantum Dot?
Quantum dots are tiny particles of between two and 10 nanometres in diameter. The reason they’re so brilliant at displaying colour is that each dot gives off a different colour according to its size.
What’s the difference between OLED and QLED?
OLED stands for Organic Light-Emitting Diode, which is an organic, carbon-based film that’s placed between two conductors. When an electrical current is passed through, it emits light.The type of OLED technology used in televisions is Active-Matrix and it requires electronics to switch each pixel on or off individually, which is better for displaying deep blacks.
QLED stands for Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diode. Instead of the photo luminescent particles in OLED, QLED are electroluminescent nanoparticles. That means that light can be supplied directly to a display, instead of via an LED backlight, which can distort the pureness of colours.
What’s the resolution of a QLED TV?
3840 x 2160 resolution
What does colour volume mean?
It means that colour doesn’t ever fade, in any lighting condition. Pinpoint colour accuracy, improved brightness and the deepest blacks are achieved on an active display.
What is a one-connect box?
One Connect Box is a media receiver with a built-in TV tuner. It minimises cable clutter by functioning as a hub for connecting A/V components, while using a single one connection cable to interface with the panel. There are several other ports available in the One Connect box for seamless connectivity. The slim near-invisible optical cable connects every device to the TV through the One Connect box, allowing you to place devices further away so you can use the space for your decor. With auto detection, the QLED TV recognises your HDMI connected devices almost instantly. The input selection screen shows you what devices (satellite, Blu-Ray, Xbox) are connected in each HDMI input.
What is a Clean Cable Solution?
This eliminates clutter by neatly routing cables through the base of the TV stand.
What can I control with the One Remote?
You can control key functions for your HDMI connected devices (satellite, cable, Blu-ray, Soundbar) with a single remote – Samsung One Remote. There’s also no need to navigate; you can see everything in one place with the Smart Hub and find your favourite shows and games faster, you can even preview thumbnails without opening the content.
What is Burn-in?
With the QLED, burn-in isn’t something you’ll ever experience because the technology protects your screen from this. Burn-in is a permanent defect in areas of a TV display that can be caused by cumulative effects of displaying the same image or scene for extended periods of time, sometimes even as little as one hour.
