Experience the next innovation in TV and see colour in a whole new light with Samsung’s Q8. Samsung’s QLED screens are at the cutting edge of home visual entertainment, with a picture quality that will take your breath away. QLED, a refinement of their Quantum Dot technology, delivers UHD Premium picture quality for jaw-dropping colour and a flawlessly realistic picture of the highest luminance and exceptionally real blacks. Elegant, minimalist 360 design with practically ‘bezel-less’ edging fits seamlessly into your home, top quality speakers deliver premium audio quality to match the visuals, while a single Smart Remote controls all compatible devices.
Utilising ground-breaking quantum dot technology, QLED takes light and turns it into breath-taking colour. For the first time, 100% colour volume is achieved (DCI-P3 standard measure), for a staggeringly realistic picture of rich, authentic colour.
Enjoy stunningly bold contrast, night and day. With extremely low light reflectivity, QLED TVs deliver an impeccable contrast in a wide variety of lighting environments, so whether you’re watching in a darkened room or bright light, it’s always a perfect picture.
Q HDR 1500
Samsung are one of the forerunners of colour-boosting High Dynamic Range (HDR). As members of the newly-founded UHD Alliance, they’ve delivered top-of-the-range HDR with a staggering 10-bit colour depth. This means that there are over a billion individual colours to deepen your view and show shades you’ve never seen in home entertainment before. Samsung’s HDR 1500, indicating up to 1500 nits of shimmering brightness, gives a glorious glow that will knock your socks off. Usually, studios are forced to dilute the colour of their shows and films to fit on our TVs. Now, HDR screens like the Q8 can channel content from studio-to-living room with the same precision and utterly otherworldly hues. QLED technology delivers the highest brightness levels to date, enabling you to experience the full potential of the latest HDR standards.
Q Viewing Angle
Enjoy the picture from amazingly wide viewing angles, meaning that every seat is the best seat in the house. QLED panels can be lit from multiple angles, so colour and contrast is consistent, no matter where you are sitting. The result is a staggeringly lifelike image of beautifully rich colour, from any viewpoint.
Razor Sharp 4K
To respond to screens getting bigger, brands have packed their screens with more pixels. This 55-inch screen has four times the number of pixels than 1080p HD TVs, delivering stunning realism, natural motion and incredible detail. Experience this high-spec picture across a range of broadcasts, movies, sports and more thanks to 4K upscaling. As it converts lower resolution content to near-4K quality, anything you watch on the big screen will be truly extraordinary. Upscaling is a process through which a lower resolution signal or data source is displayed at a higher resolution. The upscaling process interpolates additional pixels from the source data, and produces a clearer picture on your 4K screen than a non-upscaled image. And with Supreme Motion processing movement, even the very fastest action is smooth and blur-free.
360 Design and Near Invisible Optical Cable
Minimalistic Sterling Silver 360 design looks stunning from any angle, with a clean back and a practically ‘bezel-less’ edge that maximises the viewing area. Design your space with a near-invisible optical cable for all your connections, hidden from view in a slim, sleek stand removing unsightly clutter from your living room.
