Normal LED TVs work with LCDs (liquid crystals) that are illuminated by LEDs (light-emitting diodes) as a background (backlight). With OLED TV
, on the other hand, the image is generated by organic light-emitting diodes. This allows for a very thin construction. OLEDs deliver deeper blacks, higher contrasts and more brilliant colors. Other advantages are: Good energy efficiency and fast response times. The lifespan of OLEDs is currently 36,000 hours, which means that if you run the TV for 6 hours a day, you can watch TV for about 10 years.
Picture in Picture
stands for picture in picture. That is, while you are watching TV, you can pop up a small window where another program is running. For this you need a TV with two built-in tuners.
TVs are called “smart” if they have additional computer functions, such as Internet access and HbbTV, or use apps. Numerous interfaces, such as LAN, WiFi, USB and memory cards provide intelligent networking.
Triple Tuner and Quattro Tuner
A triple tuner contains three TV receivers: antenna (DVB-T), cable (DVB-C) and satellite (DVB-S2). This three-way reception option is part of the basic equipment of modern TV sets. Some manufacturers even offer quattro tuners with four different reception paths: The fourth tuner (DVB>IP) corresponds to TV>IP.
Twin Triple Tuner
If two triple or quattro tuners are installed, you can watch a program and record another program at the same time. Or watch a soccer game in the kitchen while your family watches a feature film in the living room.
UHD, 4K and SUHD
Ultra High Definition Television(UHDTV
) refers to a new standard in TV with a picture resolution of 4K
. It offers about four times as many pixels as Full HD and thus a razor-sharp image with great depth. You’ll notice this especially when you watch your own 4K photos or 4K movies from the Internet on the TV screen. Samsung’s latest SUHD
TV generation uses Quantum Dot technology for its displays. In simple terms, quantum dots are nanocrystals that can transform blue light into green and red light dots. SUHD TVs
are characterized by high energy efficiency and color richness.
Thanks to USB interface, many modern TVs can be connected to USB devices and USB storage media. If a TV supports USB recording, it is possible to record programs to a USB stick or USB hard drive. If the TV manufacturer also offers the “Timeshift” function, you can pause a program in progress and watch it later with a time delay. An integrated Twin Triple or Twin Quattro tuner makes it possible to switch to another program while recording.
Web browsers are computer programs that can display web pages, documents and data. Browsers are the user interface for web apps and allow you to browse the Internet with your TV at your convenience.
WiFi-enabled TVs offer WiFi and thus the possibility to connect wirelessly to the Internet or home network.
