Samsung S9

Samsungs S9 für 39.999 $ in den USA

Samsung hat per Pres­se­mit­tei­lung den US-Preis für sei­nen 85 Zoll Ultra HD Fern­se­her bekannt gege­ben. Die­ser liegt bei 39.999 $US. Das sind umge­rech­net „nur“ 31.000 Euro. Erst Anfang Februar die­sen Jah­res wurde der 4K-Fern­se­her in Monacco vor­ge­stellt, mit einem Preis von 40.000 Euro für Europa.

Einen Teil die­ser enor­men Dif­fe­renz, kann man sicher durch die unter­schied­li­chen Steu­er­sät­zen in Europa und den USA begrün­den, bleibt aber noch eine Dif­fe­renz von ca. 3000 Euro.

Wenn man ehr­lich ist, die „paar“ Euro wer­den einen Kauf­in­ter­es­sier­ten nicht stö­ren. Wer sich zu die­sem Preis ein Fern­seh­ge­rät zulegt, wird sicher­lich über genug Geld­re­ser­ven ver­fü­gen.

Wer in Zukunft einen Samsung S9 4K-Fern­se­her sein Eigen nennt, darf sich über satte Far­ben und beste Schwarz­werte, dank Samsungs Pre­ci­sion Black Pro-Tech­no­lo­gie freuen. Auch Videos im Stan­dard HD For­mat, sol­len dank inte­grier­tem Ultra HD-Ups­ca­ler ein ganz neues Fern­se­h­er­leb­nis bie­ten.

3-Wege Laut­spre­cher mit 2.2 Kanal-Sound und 120 Watt (ver­baut im Rah­men), sol­len lt. Her­stel­ler um bis zu 6 mal bes­se­ren Sound bie­ten als bei Stan­dard-Fern­se­her (wie kann man das errech­nen?). Nicht zu ver­ges­sen die aus­ge­fal­lene Rah­men­kon­struk­tion, die es erlaubt den Fern­se­her in die gewünschte ver­ti­kale Posi­tion zu ver­stel­len.

Die Ame­ri­ka­nen dür­fen sich bereits Ende März über den 85 Zoll Behe­moth freuen. In Europa rech­net man mit einer Ver­füg­bar­keit ab April.

Der F8500 Full HD-Fernseher mit HEVC-Codec Support

Sehr inter­es­sant ist auch, dass Samsung mit dem F8500, einen der ers­ten Fern­seh­ge­räte mit HEVC (h.265) Codec Sup­port auf den Markt bringt. Die­ser ermög­licht auch bei bestehen­dem HD-Film­ma­te­rial, eine Ver­bes­se­rung der Qua­li­tät bei glei­cher Daten­menge, oder eine Redu­zie­rung der Daten­menge bei gleich­blei­ben­der Qua­li­tät um ca. 50%. Inter­es­sant wäre es zu wis­sen, wann der erste Ultra HD-fähige Fern­se­her mit HEVC-Sup­port ange­kün­digt wird.

First ever Evo­lu­tion Kit, S-Recom­men­da­tion and Smart Hub offer con­su­mers a tele­vi­sion view­ing expe­ri­ence unlike any other

The TV indus­try is under­go­ing a sea change in both con­tent and tech­no­logy.

The 2013 line up of TVs represent Samsung’s sixth generation of Smart TV. While features vary by model, highlights of select products include:

A rede­si­gned Samsung Smart Hub that offers five dyna­mic menu panels to help con­su­mers manage and navi­gate dif­fe­rent types of con­tent.
With S-Recom­men­da­tion, con­su­mers can easily find the con­tent they want – whe­ther on TV or via pre­mium VOD ser­vices – thanks to per­so­na­li­zed recom­men­da­ti­ons based on their view­ing hab­its over time.
Out­stan­ding pic­ture qua­lity across the 2013 lines. Samsung’s UHD TV and LED TVs offer brigh­ter, more vibrant color, and its flagship Plasma TV deli­vers deeper blacks and brigh­ter whi­tes than pre­viously seen on plasma models.

A quad-core CPU enables quick app laun­ching, web brow­sing and multi-tas­king.
Smart View lets con­su­mers move con­tent seam­lessly from the TV to con­nec­ted devices and back in real-time, so con­su­mers never miss a moment of their favo­rite shows using AllS­hare.
Advan­ced Smart Inter­ac­tion allows con­su­mers to use ever­y­day lan­guage and casual gestu­res to con­trol the TV.

Samsung Transforms TV Watching

Avail­able on select 2013 TVs, Blu-ray play­ers and home thea­ter sys­tems, the new Smart Hub draws inspi­ra­tion from how con­su­mers inter­act with mobile devices by offe­ring intui­tive con­trols and a one-of-a-kind user expe­ri­ence. The easy-to-navi­gate inter­face orga­ni­zes con­tent on five dyna­mic panels, inclu­ding Smart TV pro­gram gui­des, video-on-demand, apps, social and per­so­nal con­tent. These panels include:

Samsung’s S-Recom­men­da­tion gives con­su­mers a uni­que way of dis­co­ver­ing con­tent based on their per­so­nal pre­fe­ren­ces. It ana­ly­zes con­su­mers‘ past view­ing hab­its over a period of six months to „learn“ their pre­fe­ren­ces so that it can recom­mend simi­lar con­tent. The recom­men­da­ti­ons are pro­vi­ded from a variety of sour­ces, inclu­ding broad­cast tele­vi­sion as well as strea­m­ing ser­vices.

Smart Inter­ac­tion has also been upgraded with the ability to reco­gnize natu­ral lan­guage use (such as full phra­ses) as well as more casual hand move­ment (like swi­ping to change screens).
