Samsung Electronics Australia has announced the local pricing and availability for its 2016 home entertainment product line-up, featuring the next generation of Quantum dot display TVs, and the first ever Ultra HD Blu-ray player available in the Australian market.

Samsung’s 2016 SUHD TVs offer incredible picture quality with Quantum dot display technology, and a simplified smart TV experience, making it easy for Australians to access their broadcast and online streaming entertainment services. The range also features a stunning 360-degree design, including a metallic stand, and a profile that has been engineered for a premium look from every angle.

“The new range of SUHD TVs represent the pinnacle of what television should deliver Australians, while making the experience easy, whatever your home entertainment habits are,” said Carl Rose – Vice President, Consumer Electronics, Samsung Electronics Australia. “The way Australians experience home television has evolved dramatically in terms of viewing habits and access to on-demand or streaming services. With the arrival of technologies like HDR, and access to 4K Blu-ray discs, this launch comes at an important time for the industry.”

“Our goal is to create the ultimate television experience for Australians, bringing together multiple content sources in one seamless, easy-to-use interface, while delivering an amazing picture with our Quantum dot display technology,” Rose added.

Quantum dot display: Ultimate picture quality

Samsung’s 2016 SUHD TVs feature a cadmium-free, 10-bit Quantum dot display, offering true-to-life picture quality, stunning brightness, exceptional contrast and the most lifelike colours ever offered by Samsung.

With 71 per cent of Australian households featuring an open-plan living room layout1, the new SUHD TV range is suited to a wide range of home settings – whether the TV is set in the centre of a room, next to windows featuring bright sun during daylight hours, or mounted on a wall.

360 design: Beautiful from any angle

Four years after introducing its first curved TVs to the world, Samsung is launching a range that pushes design to new heights. More than ever before, TVs are the focal point of the lounge room, so Samsung has worked to create a range of SUHD TV panels that look stunning at all times.

Single Remote and Smart Hub deliver the ultimate easy-to-use experience

Operating on the Tizen operating system (OS), Samsung’s 2016 Smart Hub simplifies and streamlines navigation of content, making movement between content sources easy.

Whether operating in-TV apps, streaming services, compatible external players or games, or more traditional TV sources, the digital interface and new SUHD TV remote are designed to make using the TV uncomplicated. In addition, a customisable interface will enable Australians to create their own Smart Hub layout so they can prioritise and manage their favourite content.

Australia’s first Ultra HD Blu-ray player

Samsung has also unveiled its first Ultra HD Blu-ray Player, the UBD-K8500, which is HDR compatible and offers up to four times the resolution and 64 times the detailed colour expression of a conventional Samsung Blu-ray player. It features a sleek, curved front design, and is available now for purchase.

Enhanced audio with Samsung soundbars

Accompanying Samsung’s TV range is a selection of audio solutions that bring style and cinematic sound into Australian homes. The range features both curved and traditional soundbars, immaculately designed to complement the full breadth of Samsung’s TV range.

Thanks to its side-firing speakers, the sweeping arc of Samsung’s flagship Series 8 Curved Soundbar offers a rich, immersive audio experience with its 9.1 channel sound. With each speaker boasting a dedicated amplifier, the Series 8 was engineered and tuned by the Samsung Audio Lab to provide perfectly balanced sound from one end of the bar to the other.
