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.

If you’ve shopped TVs recently, you’ve no doubt been seduced by the term 4K UHD (Ultra High Definition). When UHD was first introduced a few years ago, it represented a jump in resolution – basically four times the resolution of 1080p HD. That seemed like a pretty big deal, but we now know that, in 2015, UHD is taking on an entirely new meaning. Going forward, the very best UHD TVs will not only offer higher resolution, but also offer more colors than ever before and something called High Dynamic Range, or HDR.

The idea behind HDR is that it can provide a higher level of contrast between light and dark images on the screen to create a much more realistic image. That may not sound like a lot on paper, but in reality, it’s a pretty significant move. In fact, many in the industry believe HDR represents a significantly bigger leap in picture quality than UHD’s higher resolution.

Imagine a TV picture that is more like what you see in real life. One with spectral highlights closer to what you see when the sun gleams off the surface of a lake, or when the stars and moon are especially bright in the sky. Imagine getting to see the exact same shade of green you see on Los Angeles’ highway signs on a TV for the very first time (did you know TVs haven’t been able to faithfully produce that color?) or a shade of red envisioned by a movie director that is so bright and exotic, you’re convinced you’ve never seen it before. HDR makes that possible.

How New Processing Technology Might Make Ultra HD and HDR Broadcasting A Reality

Emmy-winner Yves Faroudja on his company’s prototype technology and why he sees high frame rates as “disturbing”

During the transition to HDTV, Yves Faroudja won three Emmys for processing technology that remains in use today. And now the award-winning engineer is using his experience to take aim at new formats including Ultra HD, or 4K, which is four times the resolution of HD.

“Bandwidth requirements for video are clogging the Internet, and we need to reduce the bit rate on the video system,” he told The Hollywood Reporter, noting that today it commonly involves use of a 4K-capable compression scheme known as HEVC (High Efficiency Video Coding, or H.265). “But that doesn’t work. It doesn’t [keep up with] the increased popularity of video transmission, which is doubling every 2 to 3 years.”
