The curved UHD TV design envelops viewers in stunning picture quality and delivers a more immersive entertainment experience. The curved screen gives video content 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. From virtually any viewing position, the curved design creates a more true-to-life experience so everyone watching has the best seat in the house. Movies, sporting events and video streamed from onboard apps can be enjoyed at four times the resolution of Full HD. With Samsung’s proprietary UHD Upscaling, the HU7250 Curved UHD TV seamlessly upconverts SD, HD or Full HD content to near UHD picture quality. The HU7250 Series also features UHD Dimming, which adjusts brightness to deliver deeper blacks and brighter whites, and virtually eliminates image distortion for a crystal clear picture. With Samsung’s Quad Screen Multi-Link feature, consumers can transform their TV into four screens to access live TV, streaming video and the web all at once. The HU7250 UHD TV features Samsung’s award winning Smart TV platform with the new 5 panel Smart Hub design powered by a Quad Core processor.
