As the home environment has evolved and grown in significance for consumers, so, too, has the demand for a more varied range of content consumption options – and formats – continued to rise. The Premiere is Samsung’s latest solution for those seeking the ultimate in in-home cinema experiences, as it is a lifestyle projector that offers whatever viewers might want in terms of size, screen quality and mobility.

 

Not only does The Premiere bring a maximum screen size of 130 inches to life wherever you may want it, it is simple and easy to install so that you can create a small cinema of your own anywhere in your home. Samsung Newsroom tried out The Premiere to experience how the projector brings the home cinema experience to life.

 

 

Design: An Aesthetically Pleasing Shape and Finish for a Modern Touch

As The Premiere is entirely white, it is able to fit in smoothly with any interior design aesthetic. Furthermore, its rounded edge is accentuated with a Kvadrat fabric finish to evoke cozy and modern simplicity.

How to Use: Easy Placement Against Any Wall

When you think of installing projectors, the first thing that might come to your mind is a myriad of cables, fixtures and other components. However, The Premiere’s installation is as simple as plugging in its power cable and connecting it to a wireless network, meaning that even the least tech-savvy of users can set up the projector with ease and start using it quickly and seamlessly.

What makes this easy installation possible is the way in which The Premiere has been designed to project. Compared to conventional projectors which require up to 3 or 4m of distance from the wall in order to provide big-screen projections, The Premiere is an ultra-short throw projector capable of creating a screen size of 100 inches when placed between 11.3cm and 30.3cm away from the wall.1 To put it simply, there is no need to rearrange your interior design in order to install your new projector – The Premiere necessitates just some simple organization to accommodate its easy installation. Furthermore, The Premiere possesses a compact size that means users can easily install and rearrange the projector on their own.

Picture Quality: Vibrant 4K Resolution, Regardless of Disruptions

The Premiere is available in two models – a Triple Laser-enabled model (LSP9T) and a Single Laser-enabled model (LSP7T). Samsung Newsroom tried out the Triple Laser model that features an RGB of red, green and blue colors as its laser source.

 

The Premiere elevates the color display of its projection to 147% of the DCI-P32 color gamut – capable of bringing a sunset shot, for example, to life. Users can enjoy truly authentic renderings of the unique colors and vibrant tones of all their favorite iconic scenic shots.

 

In order to allow users to enjoy the screen during daytime conditions, The Premiere features high brightness and contrast ratio levels. The projector tops out at 2,800 ANSI lumens3 of brightness, the equivalent brightness of 2,800 candles. On top of that, as The Premiere’s 2,000,000:1 contrast range delivers all the most subtle contrast differences, users can enjoy a cinema-like experience wherever they want.

So what about The Premiere’s screen size, one of its unique features? The Triple Laser-enabled model allows you to enjoy a screen of up to 130 inches in size when the projector is placed 23.8cm away from the wall. Regardless of where a user is seated, the 4K screen is capable of showcasing content in all its glory at any angle, meaning that friends and family alike can benefit from the experience.

 

 

Sound: Immersive Audio with No Extra Speakers Required

As virtual concerts become more and more accessible these days, users have many ways to connect with their favorite artists while at home. The Premiere is capable of bringing an immersive concert experience right to you in your living room as it is equipped with 40W of premium speakers and woofers built directly into the projector and enhanced with Acoustic Beam technology to maximize sound from all angles. As the sound is emitted from 44 sound holes on both sides of the projector, there is no need to install extra speakers as the sound permeates the entire room to provide you with a captivating audio experience.

 

 

Smart TV Features: Seamless Support for Voice Recognition, Mobile Connectivity and Gaming

The Premiere provides users with a full smart TV experience through access to all kinds of content when connected to the Internet. Once you’ve connected to a wireless network and entered the Menu, a range of content from providers such as Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Prime Video are available – and you can even search for the content you want to watch using voice recognition.

 

The Premiere also supports Tap View to allow you to share what you are viewing on your smartphone4 onto its bigger screen. By gently touching the side of The Premiere with your smartphone, the content playing will be mirrored automatically onto The Premiere’s screen. If you’re looking to quickly showcase pictures or videos you’ve taken to family and friends on a bigger screen, this feature can come in particularly useful.

The experiences recounted above are just the beginning of all the different ways you can enjoy The Premiere. Users can enjoy the ultimate in gaming experiences thanks to its high-quality screen and exceptional sound. The Premiere comes with three HDMI ports and one USB port to enable seamless connection to a gaming console.

 

As an easy-to-install projector with a maximum 130 inch-screen size and vibrant color, The Premiere breaks down any stereotypes about projectors. If you’re looking for a television that offers space-saving efficiency and the ultimate in immersive viewing experiences provided by ultra-high definition screen quality, large screen size and exceptional sound, The Premiere is the right choice for you.

      These days, the ways people are enjoying their favorite media are becoming ever more diverse due to a wide range of different lifestyles and preferences. With the launch of their home cinema projector The Premiere, Samsung Electronics has freed users from the limitations of their domestic spaces: wherever they choose to enjoy their content, The Premiere is capable of acting as a large-screen portal to a new, fully immersive world.
       
      The Premiere was created based on research into and an understanding of real users’ environments and spaces. Its appearance, as well as its functionality, was refined with precision so that the projector fits comfortably into a user’s space as opposed to being a cumbersome device that can only be taken out and used every now and then. In order to learn more about the innovative concept behind The Premiere, Samsung Newsroom sat down with its designers to hear about the journey they went on when creating this unique screen.
       
       
      A Design That Blends In, Inspired by Users’ Environments
      Sungil Bang, Designer at Samsung Electronics’ Visual Display Business
       
      The Premiere’s designers first started by delving into and analyzing the projector market in order to be able to develop a differentiated product. “There are already so many projectors in the market, from affordable ones to high-end ones, all with different specifications,” noted Sungil Bang. “We knew we needed to take a new approach right from the planning stages in order to come up with a product that goes beyond simply being a projector.”
       
      The designers honed in on the idea of the actual space where a projector is to be placed. They focused on the lifestyle and environment trends followed by real users in order to establish their direction for creating a product that provides genuinely enriching experiences. “We worked hard to design a product that presents new experiences thanks to its innovative technologies, while at the same time blending seamlessly in with the user’s furniture and other décor items,” added Bang. “We obtained a lot of inspiration from the space usages, furniture choices and trending objet d’arts we came across during this initial design process.”

      What might be a user’s biggest reason for purchasing a projector? Perhaps so that they can enjoy media more vibrantly on a larger screen, or to add a subtle piece of interior décor flair to a space they otherwise don’t want to place a large TV in. The Premiere’s design team paid close attention to such thinking when developing The Premiere, ensuring that its exterior wouldn’t overwhelm the space it is placed in wherever that may be. “The simplistic design of The Premiere doesn’t stand out too much as an interior décor piece since it naturally blends into the space,” explained Jigwang Kim. “Users can enjoy unparalleled immersive experiences when enjoying content displayed on an entire wall.”
       
      The designers worked diligently on The Premiere’s silhouette to ensure that the projector is able to blend harmoniously into its surroundings as opposed to standing out. The no-frills elements it is composed of, including its round outline and slim lines, complete its overall sleek and soft design. “The projector is able to match other components a user might have nearby, such as a table or a vase, so it’s perfect for those who enjoy minimalistic interior décor,” suggested Jigwang Kim.
       
       
      Innovative Features Designed for User Comfort
      Product design choices are always ultimately made for the user so that they can enjoy their product anytime, anywhere. Due to the common perception that typical projectors can require laborious installation as a certain amount of distance is required between the wall and the projector, as well as the space limitations this can cause, Samsung implemented ultra-short focal point triple laser beam technology. This technology allows The Premiere’s users to enjoy a 4K video up to 330.2cm in size even when the projector is placed as close as 23.8cm to the wall.
       
      Jigwang Kim, Designer at Samsung Electronics’ Visual Display Business
       
      As the world’s first HDR10+ projector, The Premiere offers a maximum brightness of 2,800 ANSI lumens. The Premiere also delivers a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, meaning that the projector is able to express all the subtle contrasts and detailing in darker images. Furthermore, “the projector comes with Acoustic Beam speakers that provide deep, 3-dimensional, room-filling sound without the need for any separate speakers,” added Jigwang Kim.
       
      Another leading feature of The Premiere is its smart hub, which allows users to watch all kinds of content and media – requiring only an Internet connection. “The Premiere allows the user to enjoy what they want hassle-free, as there’s no need to connect separate devices to it. It is also connected to SmartThings, so users can monitor and operate their smart home appliances directly from their projector.”
       
       
      A Stand-Out Design That Blends Seamlessly Thanks to Sophisticated Materials

       
      As opposed to being a hard, cold-looking home appliance, The Premiere has been designed to provide warmth so as to seamlessly blend in to any domestic space. A stand-out feature of its design is the material choice – the design team opted to cover the product with a premium fabric in order to give the projector its warmth and sophistication. “This fabric encompasses a subtle abundance of colors and sophisticated weaving – it is in fact often used for premium brands’ sofas, chairs and other fabric items,” noted Junpyo Kim. “The projector achieves congruity with the space in which it is placed because it has been carefully designed to go well with furniture items.”
       

       
      However, it wasn’t as simple as it might appear for the design team to be able to fit The Premiere with this premium fabric finish. Since such materials are traditionally used for furniture, the fabric had been designed for a different purpose. “The fabric’s weave structure is denser than other fabrics, meaning that it would affect the sound quality if it were to cover the projector’s speakers,” noted Junpyo Kim. “While this brought about challenges during the design stage, we didn’t want to give up on the uniquely warm and sturdy appearance this fabric provided. Therefore, we increased the aperture ratio of the woven fabric in order to maintain its characteristics while also maintaining optimum sound quality.”
       
      Junpyo Kim, Designer at Samsung Electronics’ Visual Display Business
       
      If you are thinking of transforming your space into a movie theater with truly immersive experiences, or a concert hall full of music – or even a stadium during a sports match, why not try out The Premiere, a projector capable of completely transforming the ambience of the room where it’s placed with ease.

      The way people consume content is becoming more and more diversified as we find ourselves spending more of our leisure time in the comfort of our own homes. Even the way we enjoy movies is changing – increasingly, people are choosing to enjoy the latest releases via streaming or Over the Top (OTT) platforms instead of in a theater.
       
      But this change in viewing trends doesn’t mean that you should have to miss out on the immersive, cinematic experiences that movie theaters are able to provide. In order to help provide you with the tools to enjoy cinema-esque picture and sound quality when watching a movie at home, Samsung Newsroom has done a deep dive into the Samsung Neo QLED 8K and the latest premium soundbar.
       
       
      1. Catch All the Fine Texturing and Details On-Screen Thanks to Quantum Mini LEDs
      Even for fast-paced action films, your display should be able to keep up without you missing a single moment of the movie. In order to achieve this, the control your TV has over its LED lights is important for delivering details – which is why the 2021 Neo QLED 8K comes equipped with Quantum Mini LED1 for more precise control of thousands of tightly-packed LEDs.
       
      Samsung Electronics’ proprietary micro-layer technology expresses images more vividly and accurately. Micro layers inside each LED eliminate unnatural noise among thousands of LED elements – the secret behind how these TVs can express all the fine details on-screen, including a character’s skin tone and even their drops of sweat.
       

       
       
      2. Never Miss a Moment of the Action, Even in Darkness, With Quantum Matrix Technology
      Detailed blacks and high contrast are key to delivering realistic fight scenes that take place in darkness in action movies. Quantum Matrix Technology, Samsung’s proprietary local dimming technology, allows for clear contrast between dark and light areas on-screen.
       
      Quantum Matrix Technology enhances the LED brightness level from 10-bit to 12-bit, which means that the TV can control its lighting up to 4,096 levels – four times2 more than conventional displays. The TV’s local brightness booster efficiently distributes power and improves peak brightness by harnessing unused electrical power from darker areas to brighter ones.
       

       
       
      3. Enjoy the Classics Upscaled to High Resolution With the Neo Quantum Processor
      When watching classic movies, you may often find that the picture quality is poorer compared to the movies produced today, and may also have found yourself wishing that the picture and resolution were better. The Samsung Neo QLED 8K is capable of upscaling the picture quality of a movie, even older ones, to a higher resolution thanks to its Quantum Mini LEDs, Quantum Matrix Technology and its Neo Quantum Processor, which is armed with powerful AI upscaling technologies.
       
      Based on an artificial neural network, the Neo Quantum Processor’s deep learning imitates the learning mechanism of humans to train its AI. The Neo QLED 8K’s Neo Quantum Processor now uses 16 multi-neural networks, whereas conventional technologies only use a single neural network. Each of the 16 networks divides up the content based on the input resolution and picture quality and then accurately analyzes all kinds of factors including edge handling, details and noise level. This then allows the processor to enhance a movie’s picture clarity without stalling, even for movies made in lower resolutions.
       

       
       
      4. Immerse Yourself in Ultimate Sound With the World’s First 11.1.4-Channel Dolby Atmos Soundbar
      A truly cinematic viewing experience isn’t complete without a sound system capable of creating truly immersive and realistic audio experiences. Given the growing number of users who enjoy watching movies at home, the need for premium sound experiences capable of delivering you that­ realistic rain downpour or airplane departure is also growing.
       
      The immersive sound in a movie theater comes from high-performance speakers that fill both the walls and the ceiling; Dolby Atmos movie theaters use up to 400 speakers to create that audio experience. But now, with the Samsung HW-Q950A soundbar, you, too can enjoy a theater-like three-dimensional experience at home without the need to install any extra speakers thanks to its 11.1.4 channel speakers and Dolby Atmos technology.
       

       
       
      5. A TV and a Soundbar That Operate in Perfect Harmony Thanks to Q-Symphony
      When connecting your soundbar to the TV to watch movie at home, your TV’s built-in speakers are automatically disabled to allow the soundbar to emit sound due to technological limitations regarding compatibility between different devices and content. Samsung has been working to overcome this issue with its industry-leading TV and audio technology.
       
      With the newly-introduced Q-Symphony, Samsung TVs and soundbars work together to produce the most room-filling surround sound experiences. While the soundbar itself is capable of providing rich and deep audio on its own, Q-Symphony lets you enjoy another level of cinematic experience at home as both the TV and the soundbar work together.
       
      Samsung Audio Lab is behind the success of this technology. Samsung Electronics established the Samsung Audio Lab in California, United States in order to gather top-level sound experts and engineers to continue developing audio technologies and provide the best possible sound experiences to users.
       

       
       
      1 Compared to the LED module height featured in the 2020 Samsung UHD TV, each 2021 Neo QLED 8K’s Quantum Mini LED is 1/40 the size.
      2 10-bit: 210 = 1,024 levels of control; 12-bit: 212 = 4,096 levels.

      The last few decades have seen art and technology intersect at a previously unimagined rate – both for using technology to create art, and also to make art more accessible to the public. Samsung Electronics has been at the forefront of this change, and has now partnered with the Louvre to aid its mission of sharing art with as many people as possible via The Frame and the Art Store.
       
      The Louvre has a fascinating and rich history; a former royal palace, it has been a cornerstone of French history for over eight centuries. Open to the public since 1793, the Louvre’s collections are among the finest in the world, spanning several thousands of years and regions of origin from America to the borders of Asia and beyond. Divided into eight departments, it houses some of most recognizable art pieces in the world, including the Mona Lisa, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, and the Venus de Milo.
       
      Samsung Newsroom spoke with Yann Le Touher, Head of Development, Brand Licensing and Commercial Partnerships at the Louvre, to learn more about what users can expect from this exciting partnership.

      LFH (Louvre From Home)
      Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, everyday life has been flipped on its head. The arts and entertainment were among the industries hardest hit, but that didn’t stop the public’s yearning to enjoy cultural pursuits. In order to allow people to still be able to experience its collections, the Louvre sought out new and innovative method of sharing art including uploading its entire art collection online.
       
      According to Le Touher, this has been a crucial step in making sure the Louvre accomplishes its main mission of sharing art with as many people as possible. “It is important to share knowledge on as many of the artworks preserved at the Louvre as possible,” highlighted Le Touher. “We believe this online platform, which presents thousands of our artworks, is useful not only to art historians and researchers, but also art lovers.”
       
      ▲ Mona Lisa (1503-1519) by Leonardo da Vinci
       
      Samsung and the Louvre’s partnership is in line with the goal of bringing artwork closer to art fanatics around the world thanks to Samsung TVs’ pristine picture quality and lifelike images. The Frame is known for its ability to display images that look remarkably like physical prints and paintings, with the screen’s signature Quantum Dot technology making colors more vibrant and contrast sharper. “We were impressed by the features offered by The Frame and were interested in the idea of bringing art into peoples’ homes as well as making it more accessible,” noted Le Touher.
       
      As an iconic structure itself, photos of the Louvre itself are also available, bringing Parisian chic directly to you so as to bring the entire Louvre experience to your home. The Art Store provides access to an expansive range of artworks from world-renowned galleries and museums directly to your home, elevating any living space.
       
       
      Find Your Inspiration
      The Louvre has cemented itself as a place of inspiration for artists and art-enthusiasts alike. “The greatest architects, painters, sculptors, and craftsmen not only imagined and embellished the palace, but also lived, worked, and exhibited their work at the Louvre for over three hundred years,” said Le Touher.
       
      In September, the Louvre opened its latest exhibition dedicated to Greek art. This project highlights the cultural, historical and artistic links between France and Greece in the 19th century and shows how the rediscovery of Greek antiquity changed the European view of Greece.
       
      Thanks to The Frame’s ever-growing library of art some of that inspiration can now be yours too. There are 40 pieces of artwork from the Louvre and photographs of the iconic building, available on the Art Store today.
       
      ▲ Le Sacre de Napoléon (1806-1807) by Eugène Delacroix
       
      “Our selection of artworks from the Louvre include great masterpieces, such as the Liberty Leading the People, and the Grande Odalisque,” noted Le Touher. “We also want to promote lesser-known paintings that are important and meaningful in art history.” The Louvre and the Art Store partnership has, for example, added the painting Deux chiens de chasse liés à une souche (1548) by Jacopo Bassano, a monumental piece as the first animal portrait in Western painting, albeit less known than works such as the Mona Lisa.
       
      “We are proud to be part of the partners highlighted in the Art Store,” affirmed Le Touher. “Thanks to Samsung’s technology and innovation, we have the opportunity to give people the impression of having a reproduction of their favorite work at home. Obviously, this does not replace a visit to the museum but we strongly believe it can bring inspiration and joy to many homes.”
