Samsung is one the largest manufacturer of TVs in the world, they just showcased the largest 170 ” SUHDTV this week at CES 2016 and our team got to see it. It is huge! The gigantic TV and the rest of Samsung’s SUHD TV line, 8 series and above, possess quantum dot display. This type of display will enhance the view of colors, brightness, and contrast, making it an enjoyable, realistic view. The quantum dot display consists of 1000 nits of brightness that will create a brighter picture and with Samsung’s new ultra black technology, this feature will accentuate the blacks while viewing. The quantum dot display is great for high dynamic range content like Amazon. To make the viewing experience exceptionally realistic, the SUHD TVs will have a larger color spectrum, that means more colors and a brighter picture.
But that’s not it! This 170″ TV isn’t just one big TV. The 170″ TV is made up of multiple small TVs to make one big picture, Samsung calls this concept “Modular TV“. Modular TV consists of smaller TVs -without bezels , linked together to create a seamless and bigger view. Although Samsung has not started this concept, the bezeless design is carried over to their consumer line. Customers interested in the 8 and 9 series SUHD TVs can also benefit from the bezeless design with a near invisible bezel.
It might be a while for Samsung to have 170″ TVs in stores, but Saumsung’s 8 and 9 series SUHD TVs are available to customers. Maybe one day this 170″ SUHD TV will be displayed at our store!
That familiar, big, yellow, energy guide label that comes with all your appliances will now be found in your upcoming television purchases. Recently, the Federal Trade Commission ruled that all television sets manufactured after May 10th, 2011 must include the EnergyGuide label.
This new ruling will allow consumers to get a better picture of the yearly energy consumption of any particular model. Those that are environmentally conscious will be able to make a decision by comparing different models and their required energy ratings.
This new ruling is based on the various amounts of energy consumption each television uses. Years ago all televisions typically shared the same amount. Now, with the development of TVs like Plasmas, LCDs and LED TVs, energy rates vary. The FTC hopes these labels will better inform consumers when making their purchases.
Has energy efficiency become a nationwide trend? That seems to be the case. Every time I open the newspaper, go to a store and see all of the reusable bags, or read an article on the web, I see different agencies, consumers, and companies making green efforts.
Wednesday, California adopted new energy-efficiency rules for TVs smaller than 58 inches. Accounting for around 10% of the energy consumed in average homes, California was afraid that new LCD and Plasma TVs would use even more energy. California’s consumers purchase and own approximately four million of the almost 36 million TVs that have been shipped this year, according to the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA).
California’s new energy standard for TVs should cut energy consumption by 33% in the year 2011 and 50% in 2013. The California Energy Commission (CEC) said its actions should help the state save enough energy to power 864,000 single-family homes over 10 years. The commission also believes that the measures will save state consumers more than $8 billion over 10 years, which works out to nearly $20 a year per television in savings.
