The veil has been lifted from the mysterious component that Samsung is launching at CES 2013. It is an Ultra HD TV (the S9 UHD) which comes with an 85-in or 110-in screen and a frame that is so thin that it looks like it is floating in mid-air.
According to http://abcnews.go.com, the Samsung s9 UHD TV has an up-scaling engine to bring HD content to Ultra HD level picture quality and Samsung’s Precision Black pro technology, which makes blacks look even darker.
“The audio quality is also supposed to be top notch with 3-way 2.2 channels of 120 watt audio. Inside it has a quad-core processor so it can play such detailed pictures and sound, and also run Samsung’s Smart Hub or app platform, the abcnews website said.
Samsung also unveiled a new version of its Smart TV Hub software which include five major sources of content – what’s on now; what’s on demand; social contacts; apps and personal content, which can include movies, music and photos.
“The new version of Smart TV includes a service called S-Recommendation, which can suggest content you might want to watch based on previous viewing habits. And the service can be accessed by voice. Say ‘comedies’, and up pops a list of comedies. Say ‘Tom Hanks’, and you get a list of his movies from a range of online movie services. The interface also includes gesture recognition: scan through lists by waving your hands to the left or right, choose individual programs by ‘grabbing’ them virtually,” abcnews.go.com reported.
The Samsung UHD TV also allows you to connect to social networks like Twitter or Facebook and allows you to download apps for streaming content from sites like Netflix or Hulu.
