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

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.

      An app that I would like to download and use (CAIWAY WebTV) is only supported by Tizen OS 5.0, but my Samsung TV is running on Tizen 4.0, so the app cannot be found. I updated the TV software to the latest version, but this does not update the Tizen OS itself. Is there a way to update the Tizen OS itself?

      What if technology could make an everyday moment richer, more connected and more lifelike? Samsung’s latest AI TV strives to enhance the viewing experience and integrate advanced technology into people’s lives so seamlessly that they barely notice.
       
      ▲ The 8K NQ8 AI Gen3 Processor combines AI sound, AI picture and AI optimization features for a frictionless viewing experience.
       
      Samsung’s AI TV, 2024 Neo QLED 8K QN900D, is equipped with the 8K NQ8 AI Gen3 Processor, the company’s most powerful processor to date, as well as a neural processing unit (NPU) that runs twice as fast as its predecessor. Featuring eight times as many neural networks — 512 instead of 64 — the new AI TV analyzes and optimizes content in real time, delivering superior picture and sound quality and elevating the TV experience to one that places viewers at the center.
       
       
      Full Immersion With AI Picture Technology
      Watching a tennis match with the Samsung AI TV is like getting courtside seats. Every serve and every volley come to life right in the living room.
       

       
      This immersive experience is possible thanks to 8K AI Upscaling Pro and AI Motion Enhancer Pro which work together to deliver exceptional clarity by sharpening low-resolution content and minimizing ball distortion and blurring.

      Effortless Fine-Tuning
      With AI Optimization, viewers can sit back and relax. This feature automatically fine-tunes the TV’s settings for the best viewing experience. Likewise, gamers don’t have to worry about adjusting the picture or sound with AI Auto Game Mode, which recognizes game titles and genres and automatically optimizes settings for an upgraded experience.
       
      ▲ AI Auto Game Mode allows users to focus on their gameplay.
       
      AI Energy Mode conserves energy by using sensors to analyze ambient lighting before automatically adjusting the AI TV screen’s brightness. Similarly, the TV’s processor can identify on-screen motion and alter screen brightness. This feature represents a step toward greater sustainability.
       
      ▲ Samsung Tizen OS transforms the AI TV into a personal entertainment center.
       
      Meanwhile, Samsung Tizen OS turns the AI TV into more than an entertainment center. A personal curator, the operating system tailors content to users’ preferences while protecting their privacy with Samsung Knox.

      At its best, technology that enriches lives sits in the background — present, but not intrusive.

      Samsung Electronics, a global leader in the display industry, has secured the top position in global sales of OLED monitors just one year after launching its first OLED model — the 34″ Odyssey OLED G8 (G85SB model), a gaming monitor.
       
      According to the International Data Corporation (IDC), Samsung Electronics has taken the top position in the global OLED monitor market by capturing 34.7% of market share based on total revenue, and the top position in market share based on sales volume with 28.3% of OLED monitors sold in 2023.1
       
      “The OLED monitor market is highly competitive, so reaching the top spot requires unparalleled innovation and product quality,” said Hoon Chung, Executive Vice President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “This achievement speaks to our drive for excellence and understanding of consumer needs, the key factors in producing outstanding OLED monitors for performance-demanding gamers around the globe.”
       
      Samsung has also maintained its leadership in the overall global gaming monitor market for the fifth consecutive year, recording a market share of 20.8% in terms of total revenue.2
       
      Since entering the OLED market, Samsung has continued to innovate and receive praise for new monitors, including the Odyssey OLED G9 (G95SC model), which received widespread acclaim from experts and reviewers worldwide.

       
      At CES 2024, Samsung announced an expansion of its OLED monitor lineup, unveiling three new products:

      The new OLED offerings have impressed early reviewers, and have already won awards. At CES — the most powerful tech event in the world — the Odyssey OLED G9 was named a CES® 2024 Innovation Awards Honoree.4
       
      Samsung will continue to diversify its gaming monitor lineup by introducing new Odyssey OLED models, each of which will leverage Samsung’s proprietary OLED technology. This innovation follows the success of the Odyssey Neo series with Quantum Mini LED technology, as well as the Odyssey Ark, which showcased a groundbreaking interface and form factor.
