CES 2013: Samsung unveils world’s first OLED TV with multi-view technology
Slim, elegant, and jaw-dropping television sets have always been the showstoppers at all electronics shows and CES 2013 is no different. This year, Samsung at CES 2013 has unveiled the world’s first curved OLED Television that offers “multi-view” technology, allowing two people to watch completely different programs simultaneously on the same screen. This feature, the Korean giant says, is attributed to the use of latest generation screen technology, known as “organic light-emitting diode” or OLED.
Joe Stinziano, a senior Samsung official in the US, said, “It's only possible in OLED due to the very fast speed” at which images can move across the screen. The multi-view effect is delivered to the user through the use of special Samsung 3D glasses, which are equipped with integrated speakers to deliver the sound effect. The multi-view technology allows two different video signals to stack on one another, which can be isolated through the use of special polarizing glasses, thereby allowing two or more users to watch different videos at the same time.
The 55-inch Samsung KN55F9500 TV offers unprecedented picture quality and full HD content through unlimited contrast ratio and faster response time. The TV boasts of self-illuminating red, blue, and green sub pixels that produce life-like colors and eliminate the need of backlights, thus making the device thinner when compared to the OLED television launched by its South Korean rival, LG.
Adding to the technical specs of this massive 55-inch television, the Samsung representative added that the curved form of the new OLED display will create a wide range of viewing angles by bending the pixels slightly toward the user. This will offer better screen visibility to the viewers sitting on either sides of the TV.
However, Samsung has kept rest of the details under the wraps and has not divulged details about its price or release date.
