Samsung has announced that its 2017 QLED TV, which was announced at CES 2017 earlier this year, has received verification from world-class testing and certification association, Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker (VDE), for being able to produce 100 percent color volume.
Color volume of a display is arrived at by measuring two elements – the color gamut and the brightness level. The color gamut looks at the largest amount of colors that can be physically displayed. The peak brightness is of course the maximum brightness level that a display can achieve. So the combination of a TV’s color gamut and peak brightness decide its color volume. The Samsung QLED TV’s 100 percent color volume helps it deliver more realistic, accurate and vibrant HDR images exactly as the director or content creator intended, both in bright as well as dark scenes.
The high color gamut and peak brightness is achieved thanks to a new metal Quantum Dot material that Samsung is using on the QLED TV. The Quantum dots allow the TV to deliver deep blacks regardless of how light or dark the scene is, or whether the content is played in a brightly lit or dark room. In terms of brightness, Samsung claims the QLED TV can hit 2000 nit, which should allow it to deliver the most impressive HDR image quality yet.
“The ‘100 percent color volume’ verification awarded to Samsung’s QLED TV signifies the excellence of our product and its revolutionary picture quality. As the global TV market leader for 11 consecutive years, we are thrilled to be leading the TV industry into a world of Quantum dot-powered displays featuring the best available picture quality,” said JongHee Han, Executive Vice President of the Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics.
