during the occasion of CES 2015 in las vegas, samsung introduced the SW9, a curved, 82-inch UHD screen designed in collaboration with fuseproject founder yves behar. utilizing the korean brand’s proprietary, eco-friendly nano-crystal technology and intelligent SUHD re-mastering picture quality engine, the latest addition to their display family showcases vast technological advances in contrast, brightness, color reproduction, and detail for delivering a superior picture quality experience. resting on top of a monolithic cube, the 21:9 ratio monitor is quite wide when compared to traditional 16:9 HD displays – inching closer to the size of movie theater screens.

it works by transmitting different colors of light through a nano-crystal semiconductor; depending on their size, the ‘quantum dots’ produce the highest color purity and light efficiency. this type of tech enables the display to produce a wider range of more accurate colors, providing viewers with 64 times more color expression than conventional TVs.

the SUHD re-mastering engine automatically analyzes the brightness of images to minimize additional power consumption while expressing ultimate contrast levels. the screen is able to produce images with much darker blacks, an elevated brightness up to 2.5 times brighter than conventional TVs and twice the color adjustment points for the most accurate color display.

in addition the new SUHD TV, will be powered by tizen, an open-source platform that supports the web standard for TV app development. starting 2015, all of samsung’s smart TVs will also be powered with this system, giving consumers intuitive access, and a more integrated entertainment experience.
