Samsung Product Highlights at the Booth



4K UHD Edge-lit LED Displays


The QM98F 98” Edge-Lit 4K UHD LED Smart Signage Display for broadcast has a 3840 x 2160 UHD resolution with stunning life-like image quality, creating a high-impact way to communicate 24/7 in retail spaces, hospitality, corporate boardrooms, healthcare environments. The QM98F will be featured along with the entire family of Edge-Lit 4K displays including the 65”, 75” and 85”.



Fine Pixel Pitch Direct-View LED


Samsung’s IF Series displays, available in P1.2, P1.5, P2.0 and P2.5 leverage LED HDR scene adaptation technology to showcase a detailed and realistic picture. Samsung LED Display IF Series reach peak brightness levels nearly two times higher than standard LED maximum brightness norms. Often, conventional LED displays struggle to present red, green and blue color hues accurately and without distortion in low grayscale settings. The IF Series displays alleviate these challenges through a unique grayscale management algorithm that maintains consistent R/G/B gradation for improved color accuracy. As a result, low-brightness indoor environments, such as galleries, museums and shops, can display content at optimal quality with uniform and precise color expression.



Extreme Narrow Bezel LCD Videowall Solutions


The UH55F-E videowall provides unmatched color accuracy and brightness uniformity through precise calibration and panel technology. The 700-nit brightness and extremely narrow 1.7mm bezel to bezel model yields a virtually seamless, life-like viewing experience. Additionally, the videowall eliminates the need for graphic cards with Daisy Chain through use of DisplayPort (DP) 1.2 or HDMI port. Designed for 24/7 operation, this videowall creates opportunities for broadcasters with best-in-class reliability – critical in the fast-paced studio environment.



Award-Winning Storage and Memory Solutions


Samsung’s portfolio includes the 860 PRO and EVO, the newest internal SSDs ideal for high-end workstations and the Portable SSD T5 for data needs on-the-go providing professionals with expanded memory for 360-degree video recorders, action cameras, virtual reality, drones, and more.
