There’s some big news for television fans with Samsung and Panasonic both announcing new features and upgrades.
Samsung recently announced its new ‘The Wall’ TV will go on sale next month with it offering consumers the ultimate viewing experience.
This luxury television is configurable to pretty much any size you want with Samsung confirming that screens can start from 73-inches and rise to an eye-popping 292-inches.
If you opt for the bigger sizes you’ll not only be treated to that cinema-style display in your home but also be able to view content in stunning 8K quality.
As well as packing more pixels into the display there’s also an AI picture quality engine called the Quantum Processor Flex.
This delivers an optimised image scene-by-scene, so even low-resolution footage should look a little sharper.
The slim bezels along with customisable frames also mean the giant gadget should look a little less ugly in your home and it’s also designed to never turn off meaning you won’t ever be faced by a huge black screen in your living room.
In fact, Samsung has designed this TV to change into a digital canvas with its showing a variety of art from paintings, and photographs to customisable pictures with digital frames.
That’s the big news from Samsung but there’s also a nice update coming to all new Panasonic televisions.
The Japanese technology firm has revealed that its 2019 line-up of OLED TVs will now support Netflix Calibrated Mode.
This display option configures the screen the same way creators calibrate their monitors in post-production, bringing studio quality picture quality mastering right to the living room.
With this move, Panasonic says it is expanding its delivery of the most accurate images to streaming content too.
Netflix Calibrated Mode applies to the entire Netflix catalogue including TV series, documentaries, films and more.
For instance, now it’s easier than ever for fans of Stranger Things to experience the murky details of the Upside Down exactly the way the creators designed it.
“Quality means everything to us, and we’re thrilled to bring Netflix Calibrated Mode to Panasonic’s OLED TVs so our members have the choice to experience amazing storytelling on Netflix in the most authentic way,” said Rob Caruso, Vice President of device partner engagements at Netflix.
And Yasushi Murayama, Head of Audio Visual products for Panasonic in Europe, added: “Panasonic’s theme for 2019 has been to deliver ‘more‘ Hollywood to ‘more’ homes.
“We have done this by bringing Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos all the way down to our core-range models. With this collaboration with Netflix we are doing it again: bringing studio quality picture mastering to more viewers.”
