“In 2014, we’ve once again asserted our leadership in the home entertainment space by delivering the next big thing across our product categories,” said Joe Stinziano, Executive Vice President, Samsung Electronics America. “From our full lineup of UHD and curved TVs to our Shape Wireless Audio-Multiroom Systems and content partnerships, we pride ourselves on offering consumers the ecosystem of choice, with beautifully designed premium home entertainment products that best suit their lifestyles.”

Getting Immersed With Samsung’s Curved UHD TVs

Samsung’s new 2014 Curved UHD TVs deliver a bold theatrical experience and fundamentally change the way the world views TVs. The curved screen gives videos a presence not felt on flat screens, plus, a wider field of view creates a panoramic effect that makes the display seem even bigger than it is and draws viewers in like no TV has ever done before. From virtually any viewing position or angle, the curved design creates a more true-to-life experience so everyone watching has the best seat in the house.

With four times the resolution and pixels of Full HD, these UHD TVs provide unsurpassed picture quality. UHD sources look spectacular in crisp 4K resolution on Samsung UHD TVs. Thanks to UHD Upscaling, featured on all Samsung UHD TVs, viewers are treated to the best possible picture, regardless of source material. The proprietary technology converts Full HD, HD and lower resolution sources to nearly-UHD clarity through a unique four-step process that includes signal analysis, noise reduction, upscaling and detail analysis, so everything looks better on Samsung UHD TVs. UHD Dimming technology also helps to further optimize picture quality by processing each block of a picture and delivering deeper blacks and improved contrast.

Samsung’s UHD TVs not only support today’s standards -- including HEVC, HDMI 2.0, MHL 3.0 and HDCP 2.2; they are the only TVs on the market that are future-ready, thanks to the Samsung UHD Evolution Kit. The One Connect Box essentially houses the brains of the TV externally, enabling customers to switch out the box with the latest Samsung UHD Evolution Kit to stay up to date on the latest UHD standards, as well as get access to the newest technology Samsung has to offer, all helping customers protect their investment for many years to come.

In 2014, Samsung is rolling out four new series of UHD TVs, more than doubling its UHD product line up from last year. From flat panel to Curved, Samsung is offering the widest range of UHD TVs to fit consumer choice.

Samsung’s 105” Curved UHD TV - Thanks to its significant 105-inch size, beautifully curved design and movie-theater aspect ratio, this TV offers the ultimate cinema-quality experience in the living room. With a cinematic 21 x 9 aspect ratio, everything will look better on this immersive 105” UHD TV which boasts a spectacular display with 11 million pixels. The Samsung’s 105” Curved UHD TV will be available in the second half of the year.

Samsung’s U9000 Curved UHD TV - Delivering the ultimate immersive experience, Samsung’s U9000 Curved UHD TV includes exclusive technology that delivers incredible life-like UHD picture quality on a cutting-edge curved screen. This combination envelops viewers in spectacular color, clarity and detail. The immersive sensation is augmented by Samsung’s proprietary Auto Depth Enhancer, an algorithm that analyzes regions of images and automatically adjusts contrast for a greater sense of depth -- it’s like 3D without the glasses. Color is further enhanced on these sets with Samsung’s PurColor™ technology, expressing more detailed shades and Peak Illuminator & Precision Black maximizes brightness range which reproduces the picture as film-makers envisioned. The new series of Samsung curved screens can also be wall-mounted out of the box with regular mounts compatible with VESA Standards. Samsung’s U9000 Curved UHD TV will be available from March in a 55” model for $3,999.99 and 65” for $4,999.99. A 78” model will also be released later this year for $7,999.99.

Samsung’s U8700 Curved UHD TV – The newly introduced Samsung U8700 Curved UHD TV Series delivers an immersive, lifelike UHD 4K picture. With Precision Black local dimming, contrasts are enhanced while UHD Dimming perfects brightness. The TV’s thinness of 1.2 inches and extremely narrow 7mm (0.27-inch) bezel combine to create a panel only-illusion. Samsung’s U8700 Curved UHD TV will be available late Spring in 55” and 65” screen sizes. Pricing is still to be determined.

Samsung’s U8550 UHD TV (flat) - Samsung’s U8550 UHD TV delivers incredible life-like UHD picture quality and is packed with exceptional Smart TV capabilities. With Samsung’s proprietary UHD Dimming, the Samsung U8550 adjusts brightness to deliver deeper blacks and brighter whites producing a crystal clear picture experience.

Accessible-UHD Content and Smart TV

In 2014, leading streaming video providers such as Amazon, M-Go and Netflix, as well as TV providers, Comcast and DIRECTV, will be working with Samsung to find the best ways to deliver UHD content to customers.

Samsung UHD Video Pack - With Samsung’s exclusive UHD Video Pack (1 terabyte of available data), consumers can watch Hollywood blockbusters such as Night at the Museum, The Counselor and X-Men Origins: Wolverine from 20th Century Fox as well as G.I. Joe: Retaliation and World War Z from Paramount Pictures. The Samsung UHD Video Pack, which also includes 3 documentaries, will be available in April for $299.99. Samsung plans to release a second UHD Video Pack with more UHD content in the second half of this year.

The new, faster Samsung Smart Hub means less searching and more watching. Easily access all of your live TV, VOD apps and social media in one easy-to-browse place with the Smart Hub. With Samsung’s Multi-Link feature, consumers can transform their TV into four screens that can access live TV, streaming video and the web all at once, making multitasking a breeze.

The 2014 Samsung Smart Hub is more intuitive and even more enjoyable. With the new design, content is organized to be more accessible, giving people greater control of their entertainment experience. The new Games Panel allows customers to experience big-screen exhilaration without entertainment system clutter. There will be a variety of popular family, sports, action and racing games from leading partners. A new Multimedia panel combines the previous Photo/Video/Music and Social panels into one space to enjoy personal content and connections.

This year’s Smart TVs now include a new feature to quickly get to favorite channels or desired content sources. The most used and favorite apps display right on the bottom of the TV screen making it even easier to toggle between the content and entertainment you want.

The new Smart TV experience is also lightning fast thanks to the upgraded Quad Core processor. In fact, the Quad Core Plus is up to two times faster and delivers quicker loading and navigation with an overall improved Smart TV performance. Turning on the TV has never been faster with Instant On. The TV will turn on soon after pressing the power button so that users can get to their entertainment faster.
