Samsung Electronics today announced at InfoComm 2017 that its full SMART Signage line-up will be powered by the Tizen 3.0 operating system, the latest version of Samsung's cross-architecture open source software platform.
Samsung will introduce its first Tizen 3.0 displays at the InfoComm 2017 tradeshow, beginning today. Samsung's booth will also unveil how the integration of its visual display technologies with HARMAN's Acendo collaboration system creates a more engaging meeting experience. Samsung acquired renowned audio and connected technologies company HARMAN International Industries in March 2017.
Upgraded from the previously-included Tizen 2.4 platform, the Tizen 3.0 platform features a more powerful graphics engine that produces clearer video content compared to its predecessors across a user's SMART Signage network. This includes faster response, interactions and loading speeds that ensure uninterrupted playback and transitions free of black screens.
Tizen 3.0 also reduces the time and resources required to deliver higher quality digital signage content for business users. The integrated Knox security platform provides a multi-layered solution that protects the SMART Signage's systems against external attacks, while also offering security APIs to Tizen developers. This protection makes it safe to develop and host a range of security-reliant services, including confidential payment and workplace content, within the Tizen 3.0 platform.
InfoComm attendees will be the first to see Samsung's quantum dot-powered HDR10+ QLED Signage. Backed by the Tizen 3.0 OS, the QLED Signage displays amplify High Dynamic Range (HDR)-quality content at a peak brightness of 1,500 nits with UHD resolution in 55-inch and 65-inch variations. The displays also achieve 100 percent color volume for up to 1 billion different color variations. The QLED Signage's universal wide viewing angles also enable businesses to tailor the displays according to their dimensions and needs.
Samsung also will showcase its fine pixel pitch IF Series Direct View LED displays (P1.5, P2.0 and P2.5 models) at InfoComm, offering a combination of picture quality and usability for businesses. The displays combine the company's video processing and picture tuning technologies with LED HDR picture refinement. The displays analyze and fine-tune grayscale levels frame-by-frame to optimize contrast and eliminate visual inconsistency via specialized scene adaptation and provide high brightness levels of up to 2,400 nits enabled by dynamic peaking.
By unveiling its new XPB Series LED Signage, Samsung also will invite InfoComm attendees to see first-hand how it has made the conversion from static analog signage to LED displays easier. Available in four models (P6, P10, P16 and P20), the all-inclusive XPB Series displays offer an all-in-one package and the aluminium unibody cabinet structure extends the displays' shelf life while ensuring a quick installation. The XPB Series also simplifies the creation, scheduling and deployment of custom messaging across an entire display network through the embedded Banner Content Management Solution (Banner CMS), which allows users to update content and monitor overall operational performance from any location.
