Samsung Electronics just added 8K to the digital signage market by launching the first signage products featuring 8K QLED 8K at ISE 2019. In addition to the QLED 8K Signage, Samsung also showed The Wall 2019 and Multi-Link LED HDR technology for signage.
Samsung will present the new 82” QLED 8K Signage, which combines extremely high resolution display technology with Artificial Intelligence (AI) upscaling technology — producing lifelike images, enabling users to enjoy immersive viewing experiences. The AI upscaling technology in commercial displays will capture the attention of potential customers; and to store owners and advertisers, this means more content production at lower costs and lower resolution but higher resolution display in 8K quality.
The new signage’s slim design, at less than 40mm deep and uses Samsung’s new optical technology and allows for display in portrait or landscape modes. With a native resolution of 7,680×4,320 pixels it uses local dimming and Quantum Light Control. The display also features HDR10+ along with a brightness spec of 4,000-nit and provides 100 percent Color Volume.
Samsung launched a new 292” version of The Wall display in 8K globally in the first half of this year. The Wall is a large-format modular display ideal for luxury residences as well as for business purpose, configurable and customizable to a variety of sizes and ratios from 73” to 292”.
Samsung also introduced Multi-Link LED HDR, the industry’s first 8K LED HDR technology. Using Samsung’s proprietary algorithm and scene analysis, Multi-Link LED HDR turns any content into HDR quality, without special meta-data. Multi-Link LED HDR for signage delivers unparalleled image quality, featuring Inverse Tone Mapping (ITM) and Dynamic Peaking to maximize brightness and contrast ratio of the full screen by doubling peak luminance. Color Mapping feature also sets an adaptive color gamut for true and vivid LED colors.
Multi-Link LED HDR delivers live content with lower latency through an optimal live mode. It helps eliminate cable clutter of other displays with a 100-meter (330 foot) LAN cable. With the Multi 8K Frame Lock function embedded in Multi-Link LED, integrators do not require a separate device to sync content presented on 8K displays. Multi-Link LED HDR supports all Samsung SMART LED Signage products and is also compatible with The Wall Professional and the IFJ Series.
Finally, Samsung launched its semi-outdoor OMN/OMN-D series globally this year. These in-window displays available in both 46” and 55” sizes give businesses an eye-catching display solution with vivid and crisp content and excellent visibility, even in direct sunlight, with 4,000nit brightness and high contrast ratio of 5,000:1 all packed in a slim and neat design.
All of them are here.
