Samsung the Q950TS, a premium 8K TV featuring an Infinity Design with no frame and a thicknes of just 15mm.
Samsung's new TV is equipped with an AI quantum processor that combines machine learning and deep learning in a 2020 QLED 8K.
The processor runs on a neural network model and generates its own algorithm from the trained database, enabling optimal upscaling of any image.
The 2020 QLED 8K also features a new “Adaptive Picture” feature that provides optimized brightness and contrast in any viewing environment. Samsung says that consumers don't have to close the curtains or turn off the lights, even in strong sunlight, because the TV automatically recognizes the environment and adjusts the screen brightness automatically.
In addition, Samsung's AI ScaleNet technology reduces the loss of original data during video streaming. Samsung claims that the technology will allow 8K streaming on networks that only have enough bandwidth for 4K. It compresses an 8K source to 4K resolution, then streams over the internet, where the AI processor upscales it back to 4K, which its developers claim will provide a higher quality picture. The technology will be applied to Amazon Prime Video apps in collaboration with Amazon.
In addition, the 2020 QLED 8K TV supports streaming of YouTube's 8K AV1 video.
In terms of design, the 2020 QLED 8K features an "Infinity design" that eliminates the screen bezel, and can utilize up to 99% of the screen. The 15mm ultra-slim design has a completely flat backside.
A "digital butler" that Samsung says will allow it to control other hardware via Bluetooth, WiFi, and even older non-internet connected devices. It can mirror content from a mobile devices with just a touch using "Tap View," while picture-in-picture is back, with the ability to multitask on one screen. There's also support for digital assistants, with Bixby, Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa onboard.
In terms of sound, the 'OTS + (Object Tracking Sound Plus)' technology recognizes the moving objects in the video and "moves" the sound accordingly along the speakers of on the TV. This technology enables 5.1-channel surround sound on the TV's speakers.
Samsung will also introduce a new "Q-Symphony" feature, which will determine and offer the optimal sound by using both the TV's speakers and compatible soundbars. The feature potentially adds a 9.1.4 speaker setup if you're properly equipped.
In addition, the AVA (Active Voice Amplifier) feature allows the TV to recognize ambient noise and adjust the volume of the voices in a video. THis means that consumers don't have to worry about losing any drama lines even in a noisy environment.
Samsung has also redesigned the user interface of the Universal Guide, which helps consumers find content. By recommending the streaming content in various apps at a glance, it is easier to choose the content.
In addition, Samsung Smart TV users will take advantage of the free TV Plus service, which offers access to more than 120 global channels.
A "Multi View" feature allows consumers to multitask while watching TV. Users are able watch different content at the same time, from “Side by Side” to “Picture-in-Picture.”
