IFA in Berlin
In order to achieve 8K quality images, the Samsung Q900R features Real 8K Resolution which is suitable for 4,000 nit peak brightness – a standard that most film studios meet. With this function, the TV shows four times more pixels than a 4K UHD TV and 16 times more pixels than a FullHD TV.
Q HDR 8K with support for HDR 10+ technology has been added to optimize images to its full potential. This software optimizes the brightness levels and ensures impeccable colors and images. Because the TV is suitable for use with HDR10 +, the Samsung Q900R has recently received the official HDR10 + certification.
Samsung’s own 8K AI Upscaling technology is based on artificial intelligence and equipped with image and sound quality to a level that is suitable for 8K, regardless of the original source quality or format. It does not matter if you watch via a streaming service, set-top box, HDMI, USB or mobile mirroring. The Quantum Processor 8K recognizes and scales the images to display in 8K quality. In addition, the Q900R has Direct Full Array Elite. This ensures improved contrast, accurate backlighting and 100% color volume. This shows you billions of colors that are displayed with great precision for the purest color experience to date.
The Q900R TV makes content viewing more efficient with features that allow you to use your TV in a different way. For example, the TV recognizes and analyzes the number of connected entertainment devices that are connected via the optical cable. You can then select these via the One Remote, where the image source and audio output of the TV are automatically optimized for the best viewing experience. Lifestyle functions such as Ambient Mode have been improved to seamlessly blend the TV in the living room with its surroundings by showing beautiful images, weather, news and more on the screen. The five-meter long One Invisible Connection contains the optical cable and power in one seamless cable, giving users more freedom to decide where and how to place the TV. Smart improvements, such as SmartThings, further contribute to the ability of the Q900R to provide users with more access to information and make their lives easier, and the Universal Guide offers personalized recommendations to easily find live and OTT content.
