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.

      Maintaining the legacy of foldable technology, Samsung recently released the new Galaxy Z Fold2. This device is designed to provide a new and seamless experience to users with its Infinity Flex Display. As a developer, you can adjust your app to provide the best UI experience to your users.
      In this blog, we will demonstrate how a stopwatch app can be modified to adjust with Galaxy Z Fold2 devices. The stopwatch app is pretty simple, having three functionalities—start, pause and reset the time.


      Figure 1: Stopwatch app example
      In order to provide a seamless experience to the user, we have to ensure app continuity, adjust the activity according to the UI, support multi-resume in multi-window, and check the display cutout. So let’s get started.
      App continuity
      Like the previous Galaxy Z Fold, the new Galaxy Z Fold2 has two separate physical screens. The cover display is 2260 x 816 pixels and the main display is 2208 x 1768 pixels. To provide a seamless experience to the user while folding and unfolding the device, the app must maintain its continuity by preventing data loss. You can ensure continuity by using the onSaveInstanceState() method. First, save the data of the current state with onSaveInstanceState(). For the stopwatch app, the time that has passed is saved in seconds before the activity is paused.
      @Override public void onSaveInstanceState(Bundle savedInstanceState) { savedInstanceState.putInt("seconds", seconds); savedInstanceState.putBoolean("running", running); savedInstanceState.putBoolean("wasRunning", wasRunning); } Then restore the data of the activity using the onCreate() function.
      @Override protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) { super.onCreate(savedInstanceState); setContentView(R.layout.activity_main); if (savedInstanceState != null) { seconds = savedInstanceState.getInt("seconds"); running = savedInstanceState.getBoolean("running"); wasRunning = savedInstanceState.getBoolean("wasRunning"); } } Figure 2: Continuity of the stopwatch while folding and unfolding the device
      Ensure dynamic resizing of your app
      If you want your app to support multi-window mode, define the activity as resizable. This can be done by setting the resizableActivity attribute to true in Manifest.xml. This ensures the maximum compatibility with both the cover screen and the main screen of the device.
      <activity android:name=".MainActivity" android:resizeableActivity="true"> … </activity> Another approach is to define an aspect ratio for your app. Galaxy Z Fold2’s cover screen has a ratio of 25 : 9 whereas the main screen has a ratio of 22.5 : 18. To be compatible with the device, you should test your apps for these ratios and that they fill up the entire display.
      You can use the minAspectRatio or the maxAspectRatio flag to constrain your app within the feasible aspect ratios.
      Please note that, if the resizableActivity attribute is set to true, the minAspectRatio and the maxAspectRatio flag are ignored.
      Figure 3: Dynamically resizable app in Pop-Up view and Split-Window view
      Multi-Resume for multi-window
      Up to Android 9, only one of the activities visible in the multi-window operation is allowed to stay in the RESUMED state. All other activities are put into the PAUSED state. Therefore, you have to force your app to be in the RESUMED state by adding the following in the Manifest.xml file.
      <meta-data android:name="android.allow_multiple_resumed_activities" android:value="true" /> However, starting from Android 10, all activities visible in multi-window are allowed to stay in the RESUMED state. You no longer need to force your app to have multi-resume behavior. However, there are some cases where an app can be in the PAUSED state in Android 10, in which case you need to enforce the multi-resume behavior:
      • In a minimized split-screen (with launcher on the side), the top activity isn't resumed because it's not focusable
      • In picture-in-picture mode, the activity isn't resumed because it's not focusable
      • When activities are covered by other transparent activities in the same stack

      Figure 4: Multi-Resume in multi-window
      Display cutout
      The main display of the Galaxy Z Fold2 has a punch hole in the upper right side. You can set a display cutout mode according to your content style. By default, the content is rendered into the cutout area while in portrait mode and letterboxed while in landscape mode. If you want your content to be rendered into the cutout area in both portrait and landscape modes, you can define the mode as shortEdges. In the sample app, the cutout mode is set to shortEdges in the style.xml file. The sample app is set to full screen and display cutout mode is set to shortEdges.
      <item name="android:windowLayoutInDisplayCutoutMode">shortEdges</item> <item name="android:windowTranslucentNavigation">true</item>
      Figure 5: Display cutout Default mode



      Figure 6: Display cutout in shortEdges mode
      Hopefully this blog helps you to update your app for the Galaxy Z Fold2 and give the user a better UI experience. To check out the sample app, click here.

      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.
