Just a few hours ago LG had presented its new flexible and transparent OLED panels for the professional sector. But the other major Korean screen manufacturer is also present in the ISE 2019. However, Samsung is betting more on the 8K resolution on large format screens. In fact, the Korean giant has presented a spectacular model “The Wall” TV with 8K resolution and no less than 292 inches. The company also highlighted the Multi-Link LED HDR; the first 8K LED with HDR technology.

Samsung is strongly committed to increasing the resolution in the digital signage industry. The tech major has presented in ISE 2019 the first QLED monitors that offer an image quality in 8K. One of them is the new 82-inch QLED 8K Signage, a TV screen that combines the highest resolution on the market with Artificial Intelligence (AI) scaling technology. This produces very real images, getting a much more immersive viewing experience.

This screen has a slim design, with a depth of less than 40 mm, which provides super simple installation. It offers a wide viewing angle and can be placed in both vertical and horizontal modes. In addition, thanks to its native resolution of 7,680 x 4,320 pixels – the individual pixels that make up an image become imperceptible to the human eye.

In addition, the Signage QLED 8K inherits some of the features of the Samsung 8K TV. For example, it offers an improved black color through localized regulation and Quantum Light Control. It also has HDR10 +, a maximum brightness of 4,000 nits and a color volume of 100%.

Samsung also unveiled and will launch later a 292-inch version and 8K resolution of its The Wall screen. This is a large format modular screen, designed for companies and luxury residences, configurable and customizable in a variety of sizes and ratios from 72 to 292 inches.

It has a slim and frameless design, allowing the panel to blend in with its surroundings. It also equips the Ambient Mode function, which allows you to customize the screen to display diverse content, such as photos and art.

Along with The Wall and 8K panels, Samsung has also introduced Multi-Link LED HDR, the first 8K LED with HDR technology. This system equips an algorithm developed by the manufacturer that analyzes the scene and converts any content to HDR quality.

In addition to this intelligent scaling, the Multi-Link LED HDR system features Inverse Tone mapping (iTM) and Dynamic Peaking to maximize the brightness and contrast of the screen by doubling the brightness. Color Mapping also provides a range of customizable colors for vivid and real LED colors. It also has a Multi-Link LED which includes the Multi 8K Frame Lock function. This allows integrators to do not need a separate device to synchronize the content played on the 8K screens. In addition, Multi-Link LED HDR is compatible with all SMART LED Signage products from Samsung and also with the IFJ and The Wall series.

The Korean company also launched the semi-outdoor series OMN /OMN-D TVs. These screens, available in sizes of 46 and 55 inches, offer companies a striking display solution with live, clear and excellent visibility even in direct sunlight. They have a brightness of 4,000 nits and a high contrast ratio of 5,000: 1.

The OMN-D series is a double-sided screen that allows you to display content inside and outside the store. It has integrated WiFi and uses only one power cord and one LAN cable (if desired).

Both screens have a dust-proof IP5X certification and three-step overheating protection for long-lasting performance. In addition, they are equipped with MagicINFO S6, with the powerful Tizen 4.0 for optimized content management.

Finally, Samsung also presented in ISE 2019 the new 4K screens of the QMR and QBR series. They will be available from 43 to 75 inches, with an intelligent scaling motor and IPX5 dust-proof certification. Also, they integrate KNOX security technology and WiFi connectivity for wireless management.
