Samsung launches low temperature video wall
Samsung has introduced what is claimed to be the world’s first low temperature video wall. Specifically calibrated for the broadcast industry, the UD55E-S has a specialised panel with a lower colour temperature range of 2800k-6500k that corresponds to broadcast camera standards, ensuring that the colours of news footage and graphics are displayed accurately at all viewing angles.
The high resolution UD55E-S raises the quality of video wall solutions in the broadcast industry, where there are specific needs due to lighting conditions within the enclosed studios. The video wall also comes with MagicInfo, Samsung’s flagship signage and content management solution, which allows users to design and manage a complex, interactive multimedia display system.
“To deliver a quality viewing experience for home viewers, broadcasters require equipment with higher standards that are tailored for their unique environment. The UD55E-S addresses this challenge as it is specially optimised for the broadcast industry. With this technology, our broadcast customers will reap time and cost savings with ease of maintenance and minimum tuning while end-viewers enjoy more true-to-life images and footage on their television screens. With our commitment to innovation,” said Yong Sung Jeon, President and CEO of Samsung Electronics Southeast Asia and Oceania.
