to achieve the impressive 8K-quality images, the samsung Q900R has real 8K resolution capable of 4,000 nit peak brightness — a standard met by most film studios. this allows the TV to generate four times more pixels than a 4K UHD TV and 16 times more pixels than a full HD TV. powered by HDR (high dynamic range) 10+ technology, the TV’s brightness levels are optimized to produce pristine colors and images intended by creators.
