When it was first shown off at the CES show in Las Vegas, Joe Stinziano, Executive VP of Electronics in America, said the QLED is set to give the ‘perfect viewing experience,’
It works by enhancing the firm’s pre-existing Quantum Dot Technology, which relies on precision wavelengths, and has optimized colour and light efficiency to prevent degradation over time.
According to the firm, it can support all of the DCI Colour space, meaning it achieves 100 percent colour volume to display images ‘exactly’ as content creators intended.
If this TV is a tad out of your price range the same technology can be found in the Q9, Q8, and Q7, these TV’s achieve peak luminance of 1,500-2,000 nits.
Samsung says the giant screen is bigger than four 43inch displays combined and the QLED is designed to create a viewing platform that blends in with your home décor – and it uses just a single ‘nearly invisible’ cable to connect all your devices.
Building off the concept of a ‘blended’ devices that better encapsulates viewers’ lifestyles, the firm also revealed a gapless wall-mount system that allows the TV to be hung and adjusted even after it’s been put in place.
