Samsung Electronics, the world’s leading TV manufacturer for 18 consecutive years, has commenced its annual series of Tech Seminars in Frankfurt, Germany. From February 20 to 22, Samsung will showcase its newest display lineup for 2024 that features new, innovative AI technology and smart features on the Neo QLED, OLED and Lifestyle products to professionals in Europe.
Tech Seminar sessions are a longstanding program, having delivered detailed information and exclusive hands-on experiences with new products for the past 13 years. As part of Samsung’s visual display vision — “We look out of the box to inspire new ways of life” — this year the company is displaying select, cutting-edge technologies from its 2024 lineup that offer new lifestyles and new ways of consuming content.
The 2024 European Tech Seminar in Frankfurt sets the stage for similar sessions in major regions worldwide later this year, including Southeast Asia and Latin America. At these events, Samsung will feature new technologies that span across the latest TVs and lifestyle product lineup:
Samsung’s 75-inch Neo QLED 8K QN900D incorporates the new and powerful NQ8 AI Gen3 Processor, which supports features like 8K AI Upscaling Pro and AI Motion Enhancer Pro for the best Neo QLED 8K visuals to date. The 2024 Tizen OS brings content front and center, offering a personalized experience based on different accounts set up on smart TVs. Tizen features services such as Samsung Gaming Hub, an all-in-one game streaming discovery platform, with content recommendations for a convenient and tailored cloud gaming experience. Music Frame is a customizable wireless speaker designed to seamlessly blend into its surroundings. It can operate as a standalone speaker, or it can pair with a Samsung TV and soundbar via Q-Symphony to deliver a more immersive viewing experience with surround sound. New OLED Glare Free technology was specifically designed for Samsung’s 2024 OLED screens and preserves color accuracy and image sharpness while reducing reflections from nearby lighting. The new, specialized hard-coating layer and surface coating pattern overcomes the trade-off between gloss and reflection.

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?

Unparalleled Viewing Experiences on an AI-Powered 8K Display
As a TV market leader for nearly two decades, Samsung’s premium displays have continually set the standard for viewing experiences. Building off this expertise, Samsung integrated AI technology into its TVs to create the 2024 Neo QLED 8K — offering users superior viewing experiences with the latest technical features.
▲ Attendees viewed the Neo QLED 8K display section at the Samsung First Look event on January 7 (local time).
The Neo QLED 8K contains the NQ8 AI Gen3 Processor, the company’s most advanced AI-powered processor to date. The processor supports a neural processing unit (NPU) that is twice as fast as previous versions and an AI neural network eight times larger than before. As the processor utilizes deep learning and 8K AI Upscaling Pro technology, it automatically adjusts image and sound quality, delivering picture-perfect 8K content every time.

Visitors to the zone could also learn about the new AI Motion Enhancer Pro and Active Voice Amplifier Pro functionality of the Neo QLED 8K which help to minimize distractions while viewing. The AI Motion Enhancer Pro utilizes a sophisticated motion detection algorithm to enhance clarity during motion-intense content, such as sports games, helping users enjoy every moment of a match. Similarly, the Active Voice Amplifier Pro feature utilizes AI to analyze and separate aspects of sound to provide optimal sound for different types of content. For instance, users can choose to minimize or enhance the background noise from a conversation — helping them catch every word without distractions.
▲ Enhanced by Samsung’s Tizen OS, the Neo QLED 8K display offers expanded connectivity between the display and a multitude of Samsung devices.
To provide opportunity for further customization, the 2024 Neo QLED 8K comes equipped with Samsung’s open-source operating system Tizen. As part of this, Daily+ enables users to adjust their content viewing experience by connecting their Samsung devices, such as Galaxy smartwatches, Galaxy Buds, Galaxy smartphones and more, to their display. As such, users can view exercise data from their Galaxy Watch while working out and mirror video calls from their smartphone conveniently on their TV.

Upon entering the space, visitors can experience the overwhelming sense of realism created by the 140-inch ultra-large MICRO LED display. Since the screen is bezel-less and modular, the size, resolution and ratio can be freely scaled and adjusted according to user preferences. Additionally, the new line of 2024 MICRO LED displays come in a new 140-inch size option, giving consumers another option in line with the trend of large screens.

With its upgraded functionality, Ballie can interact with and control IoT home devices to create the perfect home environment. To help users start their day, Ballie can open the curtains according to a user’s preferred wake-up time. When preparing for the day ahead, Ballie can project a variety of content — such as daily news or weather conditions — on the floor or wall. Additionally, Ballie can monitor pets and family members when a user is away from home, automatically alerting them in the event of an emergency.

Additionally, using the new Now+ SmartThings Hub function, users can monitor their home on their TV even when they’re not viewing content. If movement is detected, the Now+ Widget automatically appears on the screen, providing summaries on home energy usage, weather conditions, home information and more. When watching content, users can easily toggle the setting off from the quick menu to not be disturbed.
