Samsung: All 2016 SUHD TVs are "UHD Premium" certified

05 Jan 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

A few hours ago, the UHD Alliance announced its “UHD Premium” logo, which is given only to UHD TVs that meet strict technical requirements for optimal picture quality. Samsung says that all of its 2016 SUHD TVs are certified.

”UHD Premium” is a set of technical specifications for picture quality, including specs for resolution, HDR, max luminance, black level, color accuracy, and more. Only TVs that meet these requirements will be able to carry the logo.

All Samsung’s 2016 SHD TVs - its high-end TVs - are certified and will carry the logo when go on sale in a few months, says Samsung. The company says that it will let “consumers easily identify premium technology in the marketplace, and choose products with confidence.”

- “We are proud to receive Premium Certification from the UHDA for all Samsung 2016 SUHD TVs which offer outstanding picture quality. It validates our ongoing efforts to deliver the most true-to-life UHD viewing experience, for as many people as possible,” said Hyun Suk Kim, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung and continues; “We will continue our work with the UHDA to establish UHD picture quality standards and drive progress across the home entertainment industry.”

Samsung adds that “the 2016 SUHD TVs also reduce reflections caused by ambient lighting, resulting in improved contrast and a sharper picture, regardless of the viewing environment”.

Samsung will release more details on its 2016 TV line-up later today. You can live stream Samsung’s CES event here. Learn more about the UHD Alliance’s technical requirements here.
