SUHD TV, Samsungs Latest Innovation to 4K TV

Samsung SUHD TV

You’ve probably heard of 4K Ultra HD by now, but what about SUHD from Samsung? It’s Samsung making UHD even better!  While they’ve yet to confirm what the “S” stands for, some think it stands for Superior, Super, Stylish or Smart, but all agree it’s 4K on Steroids!

So what makes this TV so special? Listed below are reasons why we think Samsung’s SUHD TVs are sure to be chart toppers this year:

Improved and Sophisticated Curved Designs

Samsung introduced the curve in 2013 and it dramatically enhanced home entertainment. Samsung TVs are known to have modern and sleek finishes and the new SUHD TVs feature Samsung’s chamfer bezel design. This design adds more depth to the TV screen, and the elegant frame makes the TV look like a piece of art when mounted on the wall. They also have a soft, textured shirring design on the back, ensuring a stylish look from any angle.

Superior Picture Quality

Samsung SUHD TVs demonstrate ground-breaking advances in contrast, brightness, color reproduction, and detail to deliver an overall superior picture quality experience. Samsung uses Nano-crystal technology (Samsung’s version of quantum dots) and intelligent SUHD re-mastering picture quality engine.

SUHD TV’s Nano-crystals are microscopic crystals tuned to emit precise colors when light shines through them, bringing accurate, more lifelike color. This technology produces a wide range of colors, providing viewers with 64 times more color expression than conventional TVs. The SUHD re-mastering engine automatically analyzes the brightness of images to minimize additional power consumption while expressing ultimate contrast levels, producing images with much darker blacks and an elevated brightness 2.5 times brighter than conventional TVs and twice the color adjustment points for the most accurate color display.

A Smarter Smart TV

Pretty much every TV is a smart TV these days, but Samsung smart TVs are powered by Tizen, an open-source platform that supports the web standard for TV app development. Thanks to Tizen, Samsung’s new smart TV platform not only has a collection of new features, but it also gives users immediate access , a more unified entertainment experience, and more content choices than ever before, making  it the control center of any smart home. Samsung’s new smart TV with Tizen sets the standard for future smart TVs, redefining the entertainment experience.

Listed below are some of the new features:

  • The new user interface for Samsung’s Smart Hub is simplified to just one screen, giving you easier access to the content you want.


  • With Quick Connect, you can easily share video content from your Samsung smart phone to your smart TV with the press of a button. Plus, you can watch TV through your mobile devices without any apps or complicated pre-settings.


  • You’ll be able to stream UHD movies and TV shows from providers such as Amazon, Comcast, DIRECTV, and M-GO. In addition, Samsung is offering a new UHD movie download service utilizing its existing UHD Video Pack in partnership with M-GO.


  • You can also wake-up a bit easier with Briefing on TV. Samsung smart TVs now act as an alarm that sync up with Samsung mobile devices. They can turn on and display important items suchas the time, weather and your schedule for the day.

What You Need To Know About 4K Ultra HD


Just when you figured out the differences between LCD, LED, plasma, and 3D, here comes something new to learn, 4K Ultra HD. This new technology is the talk of the town right now and for good reason. If you have been a little curious about all the hype surrounding 4K read on and let us know what you think about 4K Ultra HD.

What exactly is 4K?

4K Ultra HD, 4K’s official consumer label, refers to horizontal resolution instead of vertical, which are all on the order of 4,000 pixels. 4K screens deliver an 8 mega pixel image from Hi-res cameras. Full HDTVs offer an image around 2 megapixels.  Having so many pixels of detail, 4096 x 2160 Pixels, will increase the draw distance in 4K display giving it more depth than 2K.

A little history . . .

4K resolution started in Hollywood. In March 2002 the big film studios got together to form the Digital Cinema Initiative (DCI) to establish a standard architecture for digital cinema systems.

Part of DCI’s work was to establish standards that cinemas should meet in converting to digital. Within these standards was the stipulation that the projectors installed must deliver a 2K or 4K resolution.

Sony, the only member of the DCI with experience in hardware and filmmaking, focused their energy on producing 4K projectors, with the first 4K projector being installed in a cinema in 2006. 

The DCI initiative has been very effective, there are more than 20,000 4K projectors globally, with 40% of all US commercial screens now using 4K digital projectors. This growth rate is only increasing and 4K is here to stay in the cinema world.

Why should you consider a 4K Ultra HD TV for yourself?

  • With an already high number, and growing quickly, of 4K-capable cinemas more and more films are being converted into 4K digital masters. It’s not just films that are being converted, more and more television shows are being shot in 4k as well.
  • 4K is much closer to at home cinema feel than 2k. It is the only way you can see almost exactly what the people who created the film wanted you to see, which makes it irresistible to serious film fans.
  • Detail. 4K delivers detail that 2k and Full HD can’t touch. 4K resolution is in a completely different league to 1080p (Full HD) or 2k, having 4096 x 2160 pixels to work with lets displays reproduce subtle details and even texture. So many pixels of detail increases the draw distance of pictures and the images appear 3D to the viewer when they are not.
  • 4K TVs include a format called xvYcc, which allows them to show a wider range of colors than current TVs.
  • Fantastic for sporting events. 4K Ultra HD allows you to zoom in much closer to the action, without losing so much clarity. Great for the viewer at home and for the referees making key calls during game time.
  • Not as expensive as you think Sony’s 55” and 65” Class 4k Ultra HD 3D Ready LED TV’s are mainstreamed sized screens at modest prices.


Bottom line is this technology will make you smile simply because it is so impressive. The picture is beyond fantastic compared to anything we have now. The colors will amaze you and you will see detail and texture on images that you have never seen before. 4K Ultra HD is awesome. If you don’t believe so just stop into one of our P.C. Richard & Son superstores and view it with your own eyes; you may want to bring some popcorn.
