Remember the window-like promo that went around the Internet before CES 2013? The huge Samsung floating TV with a swing-like stand was real, only not in portrait like the misleading promo. It comes in two variants, the 85 inch and the 110 inch version. We were at the huge Samsung booth at the International CES 2013 and got to witness the beauty that is the 85 inch 4K Ultra HD UN85S9000 TV, and we took a video -
This was initially seen as a floating TV, with a weird arrangement that supports the ultra thin bezel TV. It is definitely like looking into a beautiful window when looking at the charming 4K resolution TV in person. As expected of any high end TV, the color contrast and accuracy were outstanding. The screen as a whole can be tilted up and down with ease. The 85 inch 4K panel with that ridiculous mount assembly occupies a lot of space. But it is no dumb frame, it has a 2.2 Audio output with a 120 watt rating.
And like we complain in all out other 4KTV posts, we will say the same again, with respect to content. No company other than Sony has come forward with solutions for the 4K content, or lack thereof. Sony has promised to publish 4K versions of all the Sony pictures movies and it released a few 4K camcorders and pro level cameras for content creation too, but other companies have been almost mum about 4K content with the only content being the demo videos that loop on the CES show floor. We do hope that the astronomical price tags and the content issues are solved soon, and 4K becomes as mainstream as 1080p. Here’s to look forward to the future of amazing looking TVs.
