Curved Samsung OLED TV KE55S9C: special design




Introduction: first on the Dutch market

Samsung has introduced the first OLED TV in the Netherlands on August 28. The device has a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels. This was actually a paper launch, because although you can order one now for 7999 euro is the delivery date not yet known. ‘In any case, before the end of September’, knew Samsung to notify us. The manufacturer shall in any case previously with OLED TV on the Dutch market than rival LG, which released again before a oled on the important U.S. market.

It is striking that both Korean brands have chosen to display. Their first OLED production model a curved screen Curved OLED TVs were on display at several exhibitions before, at CES earlier this year said that Samsung has the curved screen is primarily intended to show what’s possible with the fledgling OLED technology. Apparently the marketers realized that the striking looks also great for marketing late bets and so they decided to take on the TV. Production The design of the TV is certainly unique and that is a welcome feature for a TV of eight thousand euros. Appearance

Samsung has to emphasize not to place the television on a conventional foot curved appearance but to assemble in a curved frame with a greater curvature than the screen. At the back of the screen is a seed that should prevent the TV from falling backwards. Because the screen is very thin, about an inch, there was little space left in the case and therefore Samsung has chosen to house the speakers. In the frame Also, there is a web cam in the frame is processed. The screen is by the curve shape and the leg to the rear is not suitable for hanging up, which we still have to be an important drawback of this design on the wall.

All connections are in a separate breakout box, making it easier to hide all cables. It is a pity that there is a separate supply to the TV, it would have been nicer if the TV was needed just one cable. An additional advantage of the loose breakout box is that it can be in order to upgrade the hardware. Possibly the TV later replaced Earlier Samsung sold loose SEK-1000 Evolution Kit, which some TV models faster soc could be provided in order to improve. The smart TV functionality

Remarkably, the subpixel layout used by Samsung. In most televisions are the red, green and blue subpixels placed in vertical strips, but this TV running the strips horizontally. Samsung probably doing this because there may arise between the left and right of the screen. Due to the curvature of the screen otherwise subtle color differences The dots are all the same size. In previous OLED screens were the blue sub-pixels are sometimes carried out greater than the red and the green, in order to compensate for the shorter service life of the blue sub-pixels. It seems there is a strong indication that the life of the Samsung blue subpixels on a similar level has managed to bring to those of the red and green. Features

The contrast of the screen is impressive. True blacks and bright highlights are good. See also the colors look great. Obviously Samsung used only demo material with quite saturated colors to show how detailed the color, but at first glance is used by Samsung OLED technology a new benchmark for image quality.

Samsung provides two active 3D glasses with it, which are provided with earplugs. This makes it possible to exhibit. Two programs at the same time on the television The glasses allow two people on the same TV can each see their own program and hear. The unique feature of Samsung’s OLED TV is that this can in 3d. This is possible because the response time of OLED is so short that the television four different images at high speed can vary succession. The lenses of the glasses pick it just the right images from the left and right eye of a viewer and b. We have the MultiView feature at IFA caN try and operation is quite good. By means of a button on the left side of the glasses you can switch between programs a and b. To the right of the glasses can be the volume of the headset adjusted. There was hardly to be seen. Crosstalk Only if the program you are watching dark pictures shows and the program you are watching is not clear, you can observe a little crosstalk. In all likelihood, this is due to the slightly long response time of the active glasses. This fact simply work with the conventional LCD technology.

The curved screen of Samsung’s OLED is shiny and executed precisely because the screen has a curvature, you have more prone to annoying reflections. The many lights at the fair there were many annoying reflections seen in the picture. In a home situation will probably go a lot better, although it is probably important not to have. Too much light in the viewing room

IFA 2013 Finally,

With a retail price of 7999 euros is Samsung’s curved OLED thousand dollars below the price sit LG’s model, which since September 1 in Belgium for sale, and this year will be. Available in Netherlands The Samsung KE55S9C is not cheap, but the price is already back quite a bit lower than the ten thousand euro at the time of its introduction in Korea had to be paid of the TV.

It is in any case a special design, though we see the curvature of the image still mainly as a disadvantage. The picture quality is certainly impressive. About the sound quality, we can not say much, because too much ambient noise was present at the booth of Samsung also good to listen to the TV.

The OLED technology has the potential to, as prices continued to fall and the TVs also have to prove to be the dominant display technology. Longer-term We hope to be able to borrow extensively to test Samsung’s first OLED TV is worth already to start saving a copy. Samsung
