Redefining the Game: Samsung Introduces First HDR QLED Gaming Monitors

Samsung Electronics today introduced the future of gaming with the unveiling of its new CHG90 and CHG70 curved monitors, which feature the powerful High Dynamic Range (HDR) picture enhancement technology typically reserved for televisions. When combined with the CHG90’s ultra-wide design and the CHG70’s quantum dot composition, this HDR integration produces a realistic, detailed picture that showcases games exactly as developers intended, and dramatically improves gameplay with crisper colors and sharper contrast.
“Gamers want to feel completely immersed in their favorite games, and our new monitors provide the most stunning visuals and realistic content to deliver the ultimate gaming experience”, said Seog-gi Kim, Executive Vice President, Enterprise Business at Samsung Electronics. “These QLED gaming monitors are the gateway to the future of gaming for casual, enthusiastic and competitive gamers alike, and we’re looking forward to building upon these game-changing technologies to further meet the needs of gamers, developers and partners in the coming years.”

A More Vivid and Detailed Gaming Environment

The QLED quantum dot technology delivers a new metal core and supports both approximately 125 percent of the sRGB color spectrum and 95 percent of the Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI-P3) motion picture standard to deliver an exceptionally wide color range.
Samsung’s CHG90 sets the new visual standard for gaming displays by projecting a 32:9 aspect ratio and 3,840×1,080 double full HD (DFHD) resolution across a 49-inch screen. The CHG90 literally extends the playing field for gamers, with its broad design surpassing industry standards while simultaneously representing the widest monitor in the company’s gaming portfolio. The monitor delivers stunning 1,800R curvature and an ultra-wide 178-degree viewing angle, maintaining content visibility from any location within a given space. As a result, gamers no longer have to worry about the logistics, expenses and central bezel interference that occur when combining multiple smaller monitors together for an expanded view.
Ideal for first-person shooting, racing, flight simulation and action-heavy games, the CHG90 aligns an accelerated refresh rate (144Hz) and 1ms motion picture response time (MPRT) with advanced, four-channel scanning technology to deter motion blur and produce a more consistent picture across the entire screen.

Gaming at the Next Level

Available in 27- and 31.5-inch variations, The CHG70 integrates HDR and quantum dot technologies, with a 144Hz refresh rate further helping to bring out the best in gaming content. This combination offers gamers a viewing arena that is brighter (600nit peak brightness), clearer (2,560×1,440 WQHD resolution) and more luminous, and which brings the slightest visual nuances to the forefront in extremely light or dark environments.
The CHG90 and CHG70 arrive as the first Samsung gaming monitors to feature AMD’s new Radeon FreeSync™ 2 technology. This frontline functionality eliminates the stuttering and tearing that often disrupt gameplay to drive seamless frame transitions. Likewise, Radeon FreeSync™ 2 supports a wide color gamut to showcase HDR content with twice the perceivable brightness and color than that offered by the sRGB standard. As a result, users can enjoy a smooth, low-latency plug-and-play HDR gaming experience without having to frequently readjust software or monitor settings.
“We’re incredibly proud of how far Radeon FreeSync™ technology has come in the past two years, with well over 150 displays now shipping in the market,” said Scott Herkelman, Corporate Vice President and General Manager, Gaming, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD. “We applaud Samsung Electronics for launching the first FreeSync 2-capable displays, and believe these gorgeous monitors should be on every gaming enthusiast’s must-have list.”

Expanding Strategic Partnerships

As Samsung’s latest gaming monitors prepare to hit the market, the company continues to expand their usability and prepare the wider gaming industry for HDR content. In strategic partnership with the EA studio DICE and Ghost Games, the CHG90 and CHG70 have undergone rigorous tuning to ensure optimal HDR picture quality.
“We’re delighted to work closely with Samsung’s monitor team to optimize the CHG90 and CHG70 monitors for our games, which is vital so that our new game title “Star Wars™ Battlefront II™” which will be released later in the year can be mirrored on these HDR monitors the way our game developers intended” said Oskar Gabrielson, General Manager of DICE.
“Here at Ghost Games, we always look at the latest technology that helps present Need for Speed™ in the best way possible and constantly look to push the boundaries. Technologies like HDR enable us to deliver an ever-greater emotional and immersive experience for our players. Samsung’s HDR monitors allow Need for Speed™ Payback to be exactly that” said Marcus Nilsson, Executive Producer at Ghost Games.
Additionally, both monitors recently received HDR compatibility validation with Nvidia’s graphics cards, ensuring they can clearly showcase a wider range of HDR-based gaming titles and PC devices.
Even prior to their widespread launch, the CHG90 and CHG70 have already earned industry recognition as leaders in the monitor product category. Last month, the Industrial Designers Society of America acknowledged both monitors as part of its annual IDEA Awards, which commemorate technologies for design innovation that improves both the economy and overall quality of life. The CHG90 received a Bronze prize in the program’s Consumer Technology category, with the CHG70 likewise garnering a Finalist nomination in the same group.

Samsung выпускает серию эксклюзивных аксессуаров для новых QLED-телевизоров 2017 года

Samsung Electronics, ведущий мировой производитель телевизоров, объявляет о запуске линейки аксессуаров, специально разработанных для новых моделей QLED-телевизоров. Этот шаг призван подчеркнуть преимущества разработанной корпорацией технолгии "невидимого подключения", которая предусматривает использование всего лишь одного прозрачного оптического кабеля, идущего к телевизионной панели.
Новаторский подход Samsung в деле создания высококлассных телеприёмников заключается не только в постоянном улучшении качества изображения, применения изогнутых панелей и премиальных отделочных материалов, но и в более широком подходе к концепции "телевизор как модный предмет интерьера".
Отныне коммутационный блок, куда подключаются внешние устройства (Blu-ray плееры, спутниковые ресиверы, хард-диски, флэш-накопители, игровые консоли и т.д.), отделён от панели отображения. Это позволяет легко разместить всю подключаемую технику там, где она не загромождает пространство (например, в специальной декоративной тумбе, скрывающей многочисленные провода), а от неё непосредственно к панели протягивается тонкий прозрачный оптический кабель, который практически незаметен.
Продажи новых "подставок", получивших название Samsung Studio Stand и Samsung Gravity Stand, начинаются в эти дни на территории США, Южной Кореи и Европы. Это совпало с глобальным запуском новых моделей QLED-телевизоров больших диагоналей, которые отличаются наиболее передовыми характеристиками.
Все линейки смарт-телевизоров Samsung с 2015 года работают на операционной платформе TIZEN, новая версия которой обеспечивает не только предельно качественное отображение видеоконтента, но и позволяет формировать меню управления с единого универсального пульта в соответствии со своими вкусами и предпочтениями. Теперь пользователь может "уравнять в правах" эфирные и цифровые интернет-кналы, выводя на первый план именно те, которые он просматривает чаще всего. Кроме этого, с помощью различных интерактивных функций можно формировать программу просмотра контента и получать дополнительную информацию (например, выводить на экран списки и биографии игроков, задействованных в футбольном матче, данные об актёрах снимавшихся в фильме и т.д.). Но и это ещё не всё. 4K-телевизоры, работающие на TIZEN OS, можно использовать как единый хаб для управления "умным домом" (Smart Home), с его помощью можно совершать онлайн-покупки (в тех странах, где соответствующая поддержка уже запущена), превращать в большую фоторамку для демонстрации слайдов и т.д.
QLED-телевизоры серии The Frame можно использовать в качестве "электронных картин" (причём для них можно заказать различные обрамляющие сменные рамки), где демонстрируются произведения мирового искусства, что может придать интерьеру особый шарм.

Samsung Electronics Raises the Bar for the TV Accessory Market

Samsung Electronics, the leading global TV manufacturer, announced the rollout of its QLED TV accessories, featuring unique TV stands and its own transparent ‘Invisible Connection’ optical cables.
With the release of these new QLED accessories, Samsung is reinforcing its commitment to providing users with the flexibility and choice to place their TVs anywhere in the room. In addition to the standard TV stand that comes with all QLED TVs, consumers can now purchase the Samsung Studio Stand or the Samsung Gravity Stand to match their personal tastes and lifestyle.
Starting in the US, Europe and Korea, sales of the QLED TV accessories including stands and optical cables will gradually extend globally.
“The QLED TV is a lifestyle television specifically designed with the consumer’s space in mind,” said Hyeon-seok Kim, President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “We aim to raise the bar and set a new standard for the TV accessory market, allowing TVs to serve as a functional piece of décor in the home.”
With a contemporary look and feel, the Samsung Gravity Stand enhances rooms with its modern design and shape. Comprised of stainless steel, which is often used by architects and furniture manufacturers due to its strength and aesthetic appeal, the Gravity Stand is so discreet that the QLED TV looks as if it were floating when affixed. The stand’s small size also enables the TV to be placed in previously limited spaces. The Gravity Stand also supports the functionality to turn the TV screen up to 70 degrees (up to 35 degrees left or right).
The Samsung Studio Stand is designed to allow the QLED TV to be displayed as a masterpiece in the home. Without extra furniture, such as a TV cabinet or bulky entertainment console, the Studio Stand provides consumers with the ability to easily place their TV anywhere in their home.
Previously, each TV model had its own standard and dimensions for its stand. Today, Samsung has standardized its TV stand structures, making them compatible for 55-inch and 65-inch models including the entire QLED TV series – Q9, Q8 and Q7. This standardization of stand structure enables Samsung televisions to be more easily mounted and replaced as needed.
For those who wish to mount their TVs, Samsung’s unique no-gap wall mounting system is the suitable solution. Samsung plans to open the mounting solution for its QLED TVs to the TV industry to support the growth of the TV accessories market.
Additionally, Samsung has released its new Invisible Connection, which helps connect the TV to its peripheral devices with a thin, transparent optical cable that is 1.8-millimeters in diameter. A 5-meter option is included with the QLED TV purchase and a 15-meter version is sold separately. Using a single thread of transparent cable, this technology allows users to better manage messy and unsightly cables that typically surround the TV. As a result, Invisible Connection allows consumers to reclaim their space and elevate their home décor.
Meanwhile, Samsung’s The Frame, which launches globally soon, also provides three customizable frame options – Walnut, Oak and White. Consumers can purchase each frame separately, and match their TV to their living space as well as their taste.
