Samsung Gulf Electronics announced the launch of its 2014 ultra-high definition (UHD) television (TV) line up across the region, including the world’s first and largest curved UHD TV. It’s the end of an era, flat screens are out, 2014 is the year of the curved UHD TVs, says Samsung.
Developed with a curvature of 4200R, Samsung’s curved screens create a wider field of view with a panoramic effect that is further pronounced by its Auto Depth Enhancer, which automatically adjusts contrast for a greater sense of depth. UHD dimming technology is also known to optimise picture quality by processing each block of a picture and delivering deeper blacks and improved contrast.
“It was an extremely difficult feat to achieve UHD in a curved frame. Samsung is the only company worldwide that can provide this technology,” states Young Soo Kim, Samsung’s Gulf president.
