The new 34-foot HDR LED cinema display from Samsung aims to offer impressive performance for a new age of the cinema viewing experience.

Samsung’s latest unveiling in cinema technology has clearly been designed for the new age of viewing experience. The 34-foot LED screen design follows the latest trend of High Dynamic Range, a hot topic that many manufacturers have been chasing after in recent times (check out THIS article for a recent example). Its 146fL (foot-Lamberts) make it over 10 times brighter than regular movie projectors, while offering “ultra-contrast and low tone grayscale settings” for contrast ratio of almost infinity:1.

Of course, it also features Cinema 4K resolution of 4,096 x 2,160, one of the features which make it DCI-compliant.

If you thought that Samsung‘s Gear VR headset, which was made together with Oculus, was just a temporary distraction for the Korean consumer electronics company, you might have just been proven wrong. At Sundance, one of the most notable film fests in the world, Samsung took the opportunity to announce that it is opening up a studio in New York, located where Samsung’s US marketing team already works in, with the sole purpose of creating immersive experiences. In short, VR content that will most likely blossom this year. Or at least fans and believers of VR would like it to.

Virtual reality is nothing really new. What’s new, however, is the commoditization of hardware that was in the past only available to the most hardcore, or most affluent, of computer scientists. But even back in the day when VR was hyped, the problem has always been the same: the amount of available content, or the lack of it.

If Samsung is to be believed, the 65-inch UE65JS9500 represents a whole new category of TV technology; it’s not just a UHD TV, it’s an ‘SUHD’ TV.

While a few retailers seem to have bought into this suggestion, though, the truth is that it’s not really a completely new sort of LCD TV. It is, though, uniquely cutting edge in a number of areas.

These start with its design.

For as well as being boldly curved, the screen is suspended in a beautifully metallic, ultra-thin frame that further stands out from the crowd by being heavily chamfered. The whole thing is beautifully built too, and even the external connections box that comes with the TV benefits from a brushed aluminium finish.

Samsung has added a new model to its 2015 4K TV lineup, the bulk of which it began shipping in April. Based on the same Tizen smart-TV platform that powers the rest of the range, the new SUHD JS7000 is among the South Korean company’s more affordable ultra-HD offerings. The television is available in 50-, 55- and 60-inch variants, priced respectively at $1,300, $1,600, and $2,100.

The JS7000 is a quantum-dot set with full-array local dimming. In other words, they provide an incredibly wide color palette with very deep blacks to produce vibrant images. The company says it’s even good enough to handle HDR (high dynamic range) content, which is seen as the next big step after 4K and the key to delivering a more life-like TV experience. One image-enhancement feature that you are likely to find very useful—at least for now—is the TV’s ability to upscale lower-resolution images to its native 3840×2160 resolution.

This being a smart TV, you can use it to browse the Internet, run apps, and play games. It also boasts a host of other interactive features, including smartphone display mirroring and the ability to stream content to and from mobile devices. On the hardware side, the JS7000 packs a quad-core processor, four HDMI ports, three USB 2.0 ports, built-in 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and ethernet. There’s also an optional camera accessory for those interested in being able to control their TV through hand gestures.

“Short film of Trieste, Italy featuring HDR Video and FHD 1080p footage shot entirely on the Samsung GALAXY S5.”

I think this is quite impressive, however keep in mind that this was shot by pros using a lot of additional gear!
