DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–″ rel=”nofollow”>Samsung
Electronics America, Inc. is underscoring its commitment to the
custom install channel at CEDIA this week with a full display of home
entertainment products and solutions that enable custom installers to
best serve their clients. At booth #5742, Samsung will showcase its 4K
Ultra HD Premium Ecosystem with HDR – the industry’s first and only
end-to-end 4K solution – which includes the latest SUHD TVs featuring
Quantum Dot technology that deliver brilliant, crisp color for the
ultimate performance in any environment. Samsung will also introduce its
new Samsung CMS (Content Management System) applet, as well as new
mounting and display solutions designed to simplify installations.

SUHD Technology and The Industry’s Only 4K
Ultra HD Premium Ecosystem

Comprised of Samsung’s best-selling
line of curved and flat SUHD and UHD TVs
, along with the industry
first UBD-K8500
Ultra HD Blu-ray player, and the critically-acclaimed new HW-K950
Soundbar with Dolby Atmos technology, Samsung’s Ultra HD Ecosystem with
HDR delivers incredible color quality and picture detail, and an
immersive, cinematic sound experience that puts consumers in the heart
of the action.

  • SUHD TVs with cutting-edge Quantum Dot Color Drive enhance light for
    more vibrant, realistic colors with over 1 billion more shades than
    HDTVs, and Triple Black Technology makes it possible to see extreme
    blacks with visibly more shades to bring out unseen picture details.
  • The Ultra HD Blu-ray player recognizes content format and
    automatically changes the settings on the SUHD TV accordingly,
    ensuring it is optimized to deliver every detail and color the content
    has to offer.
  • To round out the experience, Samsung’s new flagship HW-K950
    Soundbar with Dolby Atmos features 4K Pass-through ability. Connect a
    4K video source, like a UHD Blu-ray player, through the soundbar to
    the TV for rich sound and 4K picture quality.

Samsung CMS Applet: Empowering the Custom
Install Channel

To ensure custom installers are educated and equipped for every
scenario, Samsung will also debut its all-new Samsung CMS applet at
CEDIA. Exclusively for Samsung-authorized custom installers, the Samsung
CMS applet delivers the most up-to-date information needed to spec the
Samsung TVs that customers are asking for. Once registered as an
authorized dealer, custom installers can access via the CMS portal the
latest firmware updates, spec sheets, product grids, RS-232 and IR
codes, request Samsung’s 2016 HDR10 Reference Disc, download mechanical
and / or the CAD drawings of its 2016 models, and much more.

Installers can register at the Samsung booth to request the USB drive
that contains the CMS Applet. Upon registration, the Samsung authorized
dealer/installer will receive the drive that comes preloaded with the
tools necessary to install Samsung products and will allow access to
updated information via download as well as notifications when updates
become available. The easy-to-use Samsung CMS applet will also allow for
the downloading important TV firmware updates.

Curved Experience, Custom Mounting Solutions

In the booth, Samsung will demonstrate the difference a curved screen
can make on various types of UHD content. Curved screens give images
more depth, drawing viewers into the picture for total immersion.

Mounting options for curved TVs have expanded with the popularity of the
design. At CEDIA, Samsung will showcase three elegant ways to
incorporate the curved UHD TV experience into home theaters intended to
inspire custom installers:

  • A 1.2” deep wall mount designed for curved and flat TVs to hang as
    close to the wall as possible
  • A “Shadow Box” solution that creates an elegant integrated wall design
  • A speaker mounting approach that seamlessly blends with a curved TV
    install design

Compatibility with Top Control Systems

Samsung SUHD TVs are compatible with top control system for IR and RS232
compatibility. At the booth, Samsung will demonstrate integration with a
Crestron residential system, which often serves as the control for a
powerful home theater installation.

For home entertainment areas located off the main living space, such as
bedrooms and offices and the like, Samsung will illustrate how its
powerful Smart TV with auto source detection can control multiple
devices from a single universal remote.
