Samsung Electronics Enables World’s First 8K HDR10+ Technology

Recommended Posts

Samsung 8k tvSamsung Electronics announced today that it will support the world’s first 8K HDR10+ content, partnering with major European streaming services. With this announcement, Samsung has established itself as the leader of the HDR (High Dynamic Range) specification industry. CHILI, The Explorers and MEGOGO – three key OTT (Over-the-top) service providers in Europe – will adopt 8K HDR10+ along with its support for 4K HDR10+.

HDR10+ technology optimizes brightness and maximizes the contrast ratio, making bright areas brighter and dark areas darker. The feature is available on all UHD TV and 2019 8K TV models, including Samsung’s lineup of QLED TVs.

“With HDR emerging as one of the most important technologies for ultra-high picture quality, our HDR10+ format enables every image to be accurately displayed on screen just as the creator intended,” said Hyogun Lee, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “We will continue to strengthen our industry leadership through establishing partnerships with top streaming service providers and equipping our televisions with the technology needed to support the world’s first 8K HDR10+.”

“Our main goal in this partnership with Samsung is to offer the highest-quality content services available to our customers,” said Victor Chekanov, CEO at MEGOGO. “We will maintain our initiative in the Russian OTT service market and plan to provide dozens of HDR10+ movies to Samsung Smart TV users starting late this summer.”

Aside from the aforementioned OTT streaming services, several other industry-leading content partners are collaborating with Samsung. Rakuten TV, Deutsche Telekom’s Magenta TV and Videociety are all expected to adopt HDR10+ support for its respective VOD services between Q4 2019 and Q1 2020. Also, Molotov, the first French OTT streaming service to offer live and on-demand TV channels all in one place, is also considering to adopt HDR10+. The growing list of premiere content partners is a testament to the industry’s commitment to the best viewing experience possible for consumers.

HDR10+ content availability continues to expand. Recent announcements from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment debuting HDR10+ on UHD Blu-ray with “The Secret Life of Pets 2” and “Godzilla: King of the Monsters”, respectively, add to the UHD Blu-ray discs already released from Twentieth Century Fox and others.

Since Samsung began the HDR10+ logo certification program with Panasonic and 20th Century Fox last year, 81 companies have joined the program, boosting the program’s influence in the industry. Samsung has also strengthened its effort with the new opening of an HDR10+ center in China last December, following Korea, Japan and the U.S. With TV manufacturers such as Hisense obtaining HDR10+ certification in China, the HDR10+ alliance is expected to expand even further.

Along with HDR10+ certifications of existing TVs and smartphone products, Samsung is working to implement the program for its B2B products. For example, micro LED models such as The Wall Pro and The Wall Lux have been HDR10+ certified, and the company plans to expand the ecosystem to include Samsung’s line of LED products.

      We are excited to announce our May Technical Talk. This time let's talk about Background Services in the browser!
      Agenda
      Time (UTC) Time (PDT) Topic 6:00 PM GMT+1 10:00 AM Welcome, Latest Samsung Internet News 6:20 PM GMT+1 10:20 AM Background Services in browsers by Maxim Salnikov, Microsoft 7: 00 PM GMT+1 11:00 AM Q&A Background Services in Browsers
      Is there an app life after closing a tab?
      The user closes the tab in the browser, and your wonderful front-end application evaporates. But, what if you could leave some parts of it to work a little more for the benefit of improving UX? To respond to some events, to complete the started communication with the network, in general - to execute some code with the tab closed and even the browser.
      We'll discuss interesting features of the APIs from the service workers family. Service Workers allow you to extend the life of the application so that you always have fresh data at hand, not be afraid of network problems, and be able to show notifications - all for the sake of a great user experience.

      A major update for VR and the web
      Hi! I’m Ada Rose Cannon. As well as being a Developer Advocate for the web browser, Samsung Internet, I am a co-chair of the W3C Immersive Web Working Group and Community Group. These two groups work together to produce the WebXR Device API and related specifications.
      As you can imagine, getting WebXR support in Samsung Internet is pretty close to my heart.
      I am pleased to say that since Samsung Internet 11.2, we have initial support for WebXR in our browser. You can view the full support table here. WebXR is a very large API with many modules still being worked out. The core module which is in a stable state is for supporting VR.
      You maybe thinking that VR in the web is old news. At Samsung, we have supported the WebVR API for years. The WebVR device API is now being deprecated since it had some core issues preventing it from being future proof. WebXR is being designed to replace WebVR and reach further to support many features WebVR was unable to such as Augmented Reality and better support for gamepads.
      If you have been supporting a website or JavaScript library designed around WebVR, now is the to migrate it to WebXR to ensure it isn’t broken in the near future.
      Our current support for WebXR is to use the Android VR system to render the experience side by side in the browser so it can be used with cardboard VR devices.
      WebXR on Android (Link to Demo)
      Looking to the future for Samsung Internet, we are working on supporting the AR portions of the WebXR device API so you can build websites which place virtual objects into the user’s environment. For more news about WebXR on Samsung Internet please follow us on Twitter (@SamsungInternet) or keep an eye on https://immersiveweb.dev.

      An 8K TV in and of itself isn't really new. But they're getting ridiculously cool. The new QLED line from Samsung in 2020 is headed up by the Q950. It's Tizen-based, of course, which is the semi-open-source operating system the company has been using for years. (That's in contrast to things like webOS from LG, or Android TV, or Roku TV.)
      There's also plenty of AI baked in — because what doesn't have AI baked in at this point. And that'll do things like automatically adjust brightness and contrast based on the ambient light in the room. It'll also do its own thing to compress the video so that you're not sucking as much bandwidth as you might otherwise. (And Samsung says it's working directly with Amazon on this to scale up standard-definition content in Prime Video to 4K.)
      But what you'll absolutely notice is the near lack of a bezel. Samsung says there's a nearly 99 percent screen-to-body ratio, which essentially makes the bezel disappear. And the TV itself is 15mm thick and has a completely flat back, so it'll fit flush against a wall.
      And somehow Samsung has managed to cram killer audio into the Q950 as well. It's got speakers on each side of the display, and woofers in the back for virtual 5.1 audio. Will that be better than external speakers? Perhaps not. But it's still an incredible feat in a device that's less than 2 centimeters thick.
      And 2020's 8K TVs are making use of MicroLED panels across the board, from the 75-inch size all the way up to a monstrous 150 inches. That's allowing for the thinness and minuscule bezels. And it just looks good.
