Samsung 4K TV Glossary of Terms
4K Ultra HD (UHD) = 4K is the new standard in TVs. It has 8 megapixels of resolution, which is 4X the Resolution of Full HD 1080p TVs currently on the market. This allows you to sit closer to the TVs as the pixels are smaller, and will give you a more immersive movie theater type of experience. 4K TVs also give you richer and more natural colors (especially Samsung’s newest QLED Quantum Dot TVs).
High Dynamic Range (HDR) = Samsung is going all in with HDR, which gives you brighter picture with colors that pop, and better picture when there is a lot of bright and dark areas on the picture. All 2018 4K models on this page are equipped able to take advantage of 4K HDR which will be available on 4K bluray discs and other sources.
4K HDR Elite (provides 1500 nits peak brightness), available on QLED TVs. All provide the HDR 10 format support, which is one of the standards in the industry.
QLED (Quantum Dots) = New for 2018, Samsung introduces its QLED Line (Q7F, Q7C, Q8F, Q8C, Q9) is an advanced form of quantum dots). This technology will give a brighter picture with a much wider range of colors when compared to normal TVs. It also will provide deeper blacks. This is reserved for Samsung Top of line LED TVs.
Apple Airplay 2 = All 2019 Samsung QLED 4K TVs will come with built-in Apple Airplay 2, without needing an Apple TV set top box. You can stream video from your iphone or ipad, and is 4k HDR compatible. iTunes Movies and TV Shows will also be available.
SUHD Nano Crystals (Quantum Dots) = Samsungs older SUHD Line (JS8500, JS9000, JS9500) which all have Nano Crystals (also known as quantum dots). This technology will give a brighter picture with a much wider range of colors when compared to normal TVs. It also will provide deeper blacks. All of the top QLED TVs for 2018-2019 have quantum dot technology.
HEVC (H.265) codec = HEVC (H.265) is a new compression codec that is used to compress video. This new codec compresses twice as much data as previous codecs, so that 4K Ultra HD video can be sent over cable and the internet. HEVC (H.265) will allow 4K/60p playback for viewing 4K sports in the future. 4K/60p will also be available on future 4K camcorders. All of Samsung’s 2018-2019 line of 4K TVs have HEVC installed. Netflix 4K Content is currently streamed using this HEVC decoder.
What native 4K Content is Available Today? = Currently, Youtube, Amazon and Netflix are streaming 4K content to consumers. ESPN, Comcast Xfinity, and others have announced that they too will have 4K content.
UHD LED Edge/Local Dimming = This combines the economy of an Edge Lit TV, with the advantages of local dimming. The picture quality, black levels, and contrast can be greatly enhanced with Local Dimming versus one that is only Edge Lit. This type of system can also eliminate or reduce halo effects, clouding, and light bleeding. Samsung calls their dimming technology Micro Dimming, while LG uses the term LED Plus.
Full Array Local Dimming LED TV = An LED TV that is illuminated from the rear by an array of LED lights. These lights can be dimmed or turned off to give maximum contrast and picture quality. This type is superior to an edge lit dimming LED TV. These are hard to find, and much more expensive than the other types. For 2015, only the Curved JS9500 comes with Fully Array Dimming.
HDMI® 2.0 Support = HDMI 2.0 is the next generation of HDMI which will provide higher framerates for 4K Ultra HD content, more audio channels, and Full 4K 3D. All of Samsung’s 2018 4K models come standard with HDMI 2.0a installed.
Quad Core Processor = All of Samsung’s 2018-2019 4K Ultra HD Lineup will have a Quad Core Processor. This will greatly increase the functionality and speed of Smart TVs, and internet connectivity.
Mastered in 4K Blu-ray Discs = To accomodate the new 4K TVs, new blu-ray discs have been introduced that were mastered in 4K to give you the best picture on your 4K TV from a blu-ray disc. They are recorded with higher bit rates for better picture quality. These discs can be played by blu-ray players and Playstation 3 and 4 players onto your 4K Television. Genuine native 4K Blu-ray players have arrived.
LED TV = Instead of a conventional fluorescent backlight, these HDTVs use LED lights for backlighting. This dramatically improves picture contrast, colors, and overall picture. LED TVs also use about 40% less electricity.
Edge Lit LED TV = An LED TV that is illuminated from the side or edges by an array of LED lights. Some of the latest Edge lit sets can achieve local dimming with the latest technology.
Wi-Fi Direct™ = This feature allows you to wirelessly transfer content to your TV directly from a compatible device (smartphone or tablet) without a Wi-Fi network.
SmartView 2.0 All Samsung 4K TVs have SmartView 2.0 installed, which allows you to transmit video, pictures, or music from your TV to your smartphone or tablet. Or you can view on the big screen pictures or videos from your smartphone or tablet. Samsung uses WiFi Direct which requires no Wifi network. You simply get the free App and install it on your smartphone or tablet.
UHD = Ultra High Definition, or 4K. Has 4x more resolution compared to Full HD.
IPS Panel = An IPS Panel gives you a wider viewing angle without losing contrast than standard panels.
120Hz = 120Hz anti blur technology. Eliminates blur on LCD TVs during high action sports and movies.
Clear Motion Rate = Clear Motion Rate or CMR works with your 60Hz or 120Hz panel to give you a better picture from fast moving action. The higher the CMR on Samsung TVs, the better.
10-bit panel = Samsung’s higher end TVs have a 10-bit panel that can display over one billion colors.
HDMI = HDMI inputs allow you to connect devices to your HDTV such as DVD and Blu-ray players and game consoles. HDMI 2.0 is the latest 4K Television standard, which increases bandwidth to 18gbps, allowing higher framerates, more audio channels, Full resolution 4K 3D.
3D Ready TVs = A 3D Ready TV is one that has a transmitter built-in to communicate with 3D glasses. To create the 3D effect, one lens will be opaque (black) while the other is clear. This is done hundreds of times per second which is imperceptible to the human eye, but it creates the illusion of 3D. 3D on a 4K UHD TV looks fantastic. We see no 3D ready 4K sets from Samsung as Samsung has dropped the 3D feature from all of its TVs as have other manufacturers.
Smart TV/Internet Ready = An internet ready TV allows you to connect an ethernet cable for an optional Wifi wireless connection to your TV. Content can include services such as Netflix, Youtube, Facebook, and other content. Services vary by manufacturer and model. Also referred to as a Smart TV
