1. Let’s Go Further: Bringing About a Sustainable Future for People and Planet


Chrissie Moncrieffe at Samsung Europe Office shares the company’s efforts to contribute to sustainable everyday lifestyles.


Samsung is making every effort to minimize its environmental impact throughout its products’ life cycles. For example, the company’s eco-packaging keeps print on packaging to a minimum, reducing the use of ink by 90%. Also, the latest SolarCell Remote is now completely battery-free and can now be charged through 2.4GHz radio frequency harvesting drawing power from spare energy emitted by Wi-Fi routers. It is 88% more efficient than the previous 2020 models.


Furthermore, Samsung’s Neo QLED 8Ks have received carbon footprint certifications from the Carbon Trust in recognition of the company’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions throughout the product’s entire life cycle.




Since 2014, Samsung has been focusing on accessibility by placing utmost priority on ensuring easier and more seamless accessibility to screens for everyone. To this end, the company introduced an innovative new technology at Unbox & Discover 2022 which automatically analyzes and identifies a better location to display subtitles on-screen to avoid blocking a certain area of the screen. Samsung has also developed a sign language avatar to guide users through all functions of Samsung TVs and help them easily navigate through all manner of different functions.



2. Let’s Do: A Hub for the Smart Home Ecosystem


Ivan Zakharov, Service Biz Team at Samsung Electronics’ Visual Display Business, introduces Samsung’s new Smart Hub.


With TVs at the center of the smart home ecosystem, users can easily control all their devices using their TV, thus putting them to the best use. Samsung also unveiled Smart Hub, its new user interface, powered by Tizen. The all-new Samsung Smart Hub brings every aspect of the smart experience into one easy-to-navigate home screen. The new tab classifies features, settings and content into three categories for a seamless user experience: Media, Gaming Hub and Ambient.




The Media screen integrates a wide array of entertainment services into one, including Samsung TV Plus,1 featuring over 190 free channels for a user’s enjoyment. The Ambient screen is designed to display a variety of content, including world-renowned works of art, as wallpapers when users are not watching the TV, contributing to their interior design aesthetic. Furthermore, the Neo QLED 8Ks provide a one-stop NFT platform to enable users to explore and display digital artworks thanks to close cooperation between Samsung and Nifty Gateway.



3. Let’s Play: A Perfect Ecosystem for Gamers


Adam Burgess, Product Design Group at Samsung Electronics’ Visual Display Business, explains how Samsung delivers vivid gaming experiences.


The 2022 Samsung screens are set to help create the perfect ecosystem for gamers with the introduction of cutting-edge streaming technologies and state-of-the-art hardware. The Samsung Gaming Hub provides all the necessary functions users need to enjoy all the latest titles from game search platforms along with streaming services. The new platform will be available later this year on select 2022 Samsung Smart TV models.2




Notably, Samsung’s 2022 lineup features four HDMI 2.1 supporting ports,3 ensuring a simplified connection to even the newest game consoles. The new devices also feature an outstanding refresh rate of 144Hz, an excellent resolution of 4K and a low input lag to ensure quick speed, while the all-new Game Bar enhances visibility. At Unbox & Discover 2022, Samsung stressed that users can be fully immersed in all different types of games thanks to the improved image quality and optimized gaming environment of the 2022 lineup.



4. Let’s Experience: A Culmination of TV Innovations


Lydia Cho at Samsung Electronics America introduces the key elements of 8K picture quality.


At the core of the innovation behind Samsung’s Neo QLED 8K lies its Neural Quantum Processor 8K. Twenty independent neural AI networks analyze each scene and adjust picture quality to deliver the best viewing experiences regardless of content’s original picture quality. Also, Samsung’s 2022 Neo QLED 8K’s Real Depth Enhancer maximizes depth and vividness by improving picture quality and sharpness, making scenes more real.



Nicole Murakami at Samsung Electronics America underscores the excellence of Neo QLED 8K’s design and sound technology.


Samsung’s signature Infinity One Design provides a slimmer and sleeker look, making the TV appear as if it is floating above the ground. The 2022 Samsung Neo QLED 8K is also built with a 90W 6.2.4 channel audio system with Dolby Atmos support featuring Object Tracking Sound Pro (OTS Pro).4 The slim screen is the perfect match for its new Ultra Slim Soundbar, which supports a Wireless Dolby Atmos system. Furthermore, the soundbar’s subwoofer with 3.1.2 channels and a passive radiator provides the perfect audio performances.



5. Let’s Make Your own: The Expansion of Experiences Through Cutting-Edge Accessories



At Unbox & Discover 2022, Samsung introduced new accessories to offer optimized screen experiences tailored to each user’s changing lifestyles and trend preferences. The new Slim Fit Wall Mount makes the ultra-thin Neo QLED 8K stand out with a wall-to-wall distance of 7.5mm. Furthermore, the latest Full Motion Slim Wall Mount, almost 50% slimmer than its predecessor, sits just 19.5mm from the wall to complement the sleek style of the screen. It can be also tilted up, down, left and right to create the ideal angle for the best viewing experience regardless of the location of the viewers. In addition, by using Auto Rotating accessory, the screen is able to switch to portrait mode upon using the remote control to enable users to easily enjoy vertical mobile-style content.




When putting the screen in the middle of the room or placing it without the media console, the Studio Stand ensures a sleek, trendy look. Users can display artworks, photos or NFT artworks in a landscape or portrait orientation even when the TV is turned off so that their TV can also serve as a singular piece of art. The latest three-way MultiView also allows users to display various content such as live broadcasts, YouTube or online reviews, all at once.


At Unbox & Discover 2022, Samsung reiterated how the ever-evolving role of the screen is quickly transforming it into a tool to fulfill all kinds of functions, from ‘game console’ and ‘virtual playground’ to ‘the perfect partner to improve efficiency’ and a ‘Smart Hub to control one’s home’. Stay tuned to see what screen product Samsung will next bring to the market to once again take user experiences to the next level.
