Samsung just announced the release of their top-of-the-line F9000 Series Ultra High Definition (UHD) TVs in 55-inch (UN55F9000) and 65-inch (UN65F9000) screen sizes. Following in the footsteps of the Samsung S9 UHD TV introduced earlier this year, the F9000 series offers four times the resolution (also referred to as 4K) of Full HD TV for a vivid, crystal-clear picture. The F9000 UHD TV utilizes Samsung’s proprietary Quadmatic Picture Engine, a four-step process including signal analysis, noise minimization, UHD up-scaling and detail enhancement to seamlessly upconvert SD, HD or Full HD content to UHD-level picture quality. Both the TV and its software can be upgraded to be compatible with future UHD standards with a separate Evolution Kit.
The new 4K models feature Samsung Smart TV, designed to help consumers search less and watch more. The new Smart Hub interface organizes entertainment and content into five convenient panels: On TV, Movies and TV Shows, Social, Apps as well as Photos, Videos and Music. The built-in S Recommendation feature helps customers discover something new to watch, now or next time. And with Smart Interaction, the F9000 UHD TV is brought to life as consumers use hand gestures or voice commands to navigate and browse, creating a new and interactive TV experience.
With Samsung’s Precision Black Local Dimming technology, the F9000 UHD TV delivers a much greater increase in contrast and black levels by dimming LEDs in dark areas of the picture, making blacks darker without affecting brighter elements of the picture. It also features Micro Dimming Ultimate, which combines the use of a special algorithm and scanning technology for sharper images and enhanced contrast. The F9000 series comes with 3D technology as well as built-in Wi-Fi and an embedded camera for staying connected with friends. The fast quad-core processor enables true multitasking capabilities between content and apps for a premium Smart TV experience.
The F9000 UHD TV comes with 2-way 2.2 channels of 70-watt sound, which is more than three times better than a typical TV. This system provides a dynamic range of sounds for a commanding and outstanding experience to complement the UHD picture.
Designed to create an immersive picture, the F9000 UHD TV features Samsung’s award-winning Ultra Slim Bezel design, providing a virtually edgeless picture. The TV design also extends to the rear of the TV with Samsung’s Clean Back design and comes with the stylish Arc Stand — an eye-catching complement that enhances the interior design of any room.
