Samsung’s 4K TVs Are Getting All Bent Out of Shape

Samsung’s 4K TVs Are Getting All Bent Out of Shape | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Curved UHD TVs are going to be a big trend this year.

We’ve already an extremely promising one come out of LG’s camp (and it’s OLED, too!).

Unlike 4k resolutions and OLED technology which are clear advantages, the jury is still out on the curve.

The benefits are less quantifiable, and are far less obvious.

Plus, you’re increasing the footprint and making it less mountable. All that is to say that the curve is a trend which may or may not end up being just a passing fad, which means ultimately, you may or may not want to pay a premium for it.

Andre Bontems's insight:


.. Let us keep in mind that a flexible screen that can shift from curved to flat with the push of a button on the remote is already on display at the CES.

LG Claims World’s Largest OLED TV Title With 77-inch Ultra HD Set - Digits - WSJ

LG Claims World’s Largest OLED TV Title With 77-inch Ultra HD Set - Digits - WSJ | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


LG is making the first declaration of awesomeness with a triple threat:

The company says it will debut a 77-inch OLED television that will boast the Ultra HD resolution – 3,480 x 2,160 pixels – and a curved screen.

This makes it the world’s largest OLED set, says LG, an important bragging point because OLED (organic light-emitting diode) technology promises unparalleled contrast and response time, not to mention the thinnest screens.

Instead of requiring a separate light source to illuminate pixels, like LCD TVs, OLED pixels illuminate themselves when they receive electric current.

OLED has long been the “next great thing” in the TV business – and at the CES show – but TVs based on the technology have been slow to hit the market.

As for that curved shape, TV makers argue that it offers a more immersive picture.

Polaroid is already planning to cut the price of its $1,000 4K TV | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Like the high school kid who doesn't get invited to go out partying with the in-crowd, Polaroid decided that the best way that it could turn some jaded heads was with a dramatic reinvention.

The company pulled up outside CES with a whole new range of cameras, tablets and a 4K TV, the latter of which was one of a small few that broke the $1,000 barrier.

When we went to examine the 50-inch UHD panel, an executive remarked that this un-smart TV would likely get a price cut before it hits store shelves in order to undercut rivals from Vizio and Kogan.

Sony's new shape for TVs: The Wedge

Sony's new shape for TVs: The Wedge | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it



Sony's taking a new approach to TVs this year. While its competitors have been busy making their sets slimmer or giving their displays a gentle curve, Sony decided to focus on another shape.


It has unveiled a series of TV sets featuring what it's calling a wedge design — sets with deep, triangular sides that taper in thickness as they rise.


It's a striking and stylish look, and more importantly, it allows Sony to take advantage of the extra space.


Rather than building in a set of basic stereo speakers, Sony uses the added room to include three more-capable speakers on either side of some of the sets.

Samsung reveals a wild bendable TV prototype and its curved, 105-inch Ultra HD TV

Samsung reveals a wild bendable TV prototype and its curved, 105-inch Ultra HD TV | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Samsung has made a habit of demoing some off-the-wall television designs at CES, and this year is no different.


The strangest new design is a wild 85-inch prototype that the company's simply calling the "Bendable TV."


The demo unit switched between a flat panel and a curved screen at the touch of a button, with a mechanical system pushing out the edges of the screen to achieve the transformation.


It's eerie to see a 85-inch television bend before your eyes, and while it makes for a very impressive tech demo, we aren't sure what Samsung plans to do with the TV.

One of our eagle-eyed readers sent in this picture of a "5K" extra-wide UHD TV on the show floor.


Of course, like LG's 5K model, this is really just a 4K TV with a thousand extra pixels tacked on at the edges, but the plain technical facts shouldn't detract from this spectacular work of corporate one-upmanship.

Review: Sony Bravia KD-65X9004 | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


This 65-incher is one of the better performing UHD TVs with strong connectivity options, but lacks compelling TV apps.

The KD-65X9004 is Sony's second attempt at making an ultra high-definition (UHD) TV, which boasts four times the resolution of a regular full-HD panel.

To help differentiate this model, Sony has also introduced numerous new A/V technologies, including its Triluminos colors and magnetic fluid speaker drivers. Some of them really work, while others have yet to perform convincingly.
