Image Cache: Quantum dot screens have far more vivid colours than their garden-variety LED competition. And Samsung wants to show off just how colourful its QLED TVs are. To do exactly that, it's put them inside a Sydney art gallery — and the results are actually very pretty.
QLED Live is a four-day event "designed to evoke emotions through colour" at the COMMUNE Waterloo art space in Sydney, which has been customised with different zones showing off the TVs' colour performance. Rooms of red, green, blue and black are filled with Samsung QLED TVs with bespoke artwork made to suit the space; taking a look at the photos below, it's obviously pretty special.
If you're in Sydney, the installation is open until 5PM today for public viewing.
QLED is Samsung's name for its latest quantum dot LED-backlit TVs, and QLED means business. Samsung is promising black levels that you'd only otherwise expect to see on a top-of-the-line OLED TV, and colours that are not only incredibly vibrant and bright, but also accurate. The Q8 is a $4500-plus screen that'll make your Netflix sessions look amazing.
If you're a big-name TV maker, 'LCD' is a dirty word. OLED is a different technology, but in recent generations LCD panels have been rebranded with modern monikers, from LED to ULED to Samsung's own SUHD. Now, Samsung has a new line of TVs it's calling QLED, with a quantum dot LED-backlit LCD panel that promises huge improvements to picture quality.
LED, ULED, SUHD - now QLED. Samsung's quantum dot LED-backlit LCD panel TVs are promising a huge improvement in picture quality, and now we know how much they'll set us back.
