Samsung Curved Ultra High Definition (UHD) TV

Published:Monday | September 29, 2014 | 12:00 AM

This month was a gold mine of events for the corporate giant Samsung. The company launched myriad products for September. Luckily, we have the details on one of the devices that was launched right here in our backyard.

Samsung Curved Ultra High Definition (UHD) TV

Earlier this month, Samsung introduced the world's first curved ultra high definition (four times the quality of full HD '1080p') television to the shores of Jamaica. The unveiling was held at the UWI Mona Campus and was well attended by the media. After a successful launch, I headed over to Courts last weekend on Constant Spring Road for a closer look at this device. Folks, I have found my Christmas present; potential wives please take note. This is the Samsung Curved Ultra High Definition (UHD) TV and its features.

Smart Remote Control: The smart remote control gives you ultimate control of your smart TV. Select TV functions by talking into the built-in microphone. You can also use the touchpad to navigate quickly, or use the remote like a mouse and simply point and click.

Smart Interaction: Intuitively control your TV using hand motions. Use them to browse the smart hub, play games and more with the built-in pop-up camera.

UHD Upscaling: UHD upscaling delivers the complete UHD picture experience with a proprietary process including signal analysis, noise reduction, UHD upscaling and detail enhancement to seamlessly upconvert SD, HD or full HD content to UHD-level picture quality.

Quad Screen: Transform your TV into four screens that can access live TV, video clips and the web all at once. Watch your favourite golf tournament on one screen and search the web for current standings on another. Then watch a video tutorial to master your swing while navigating your smart TV panel on the fourth screen.

ConnectShare Movie: Watch videos, play music or view photos from a USB connection with ConnectShare Movie. You don't need a PC just plug your USB directly into TV's USB port.

Final Thoughts

The list of features alone for this device is the length of a small novel so a lot of key features I just can't list here like the fact that it has 3D capabilities and comes with glasses to use with it.
