SAMSUNG’S OLED TV: PRODUCT DETAIL
Unparalleled Picture Quality
Samsung’s Curved OLED TV produces bright, awe-inspiring images, delivering breathtaking picture quality for a cinematic viewing experience. The self-emitting RGB sub-pixels are laid directly on the colour display panel, so no colour filter is required. Without the need for backlighting, the Samsung Curved OLED TV displays pictures with absolute blacks at a contrast ratio never before seen on conventional TVs.
The Personal Viewing Experience
The Samsung Curved OLED TV introduces advanced technology and features that creates a truly personal TV viewing experience. With Samsung’s Multi View feature, it’s like having two TVs in one. For the first time, two people can simultaneously watch completely different full-screen Full-HD content, even in 3D, on the same display, with corresponding audio and controls. The innovative Multi View feature is enabled by Samsung’s 3D Active glasses, which come with built-in personal speakers providing crisp, full stereo sound.

The ‘Timeless Arena’ design of the S9C provides a floating canvas for OLED’s true-to-life colours and absolute blacks. A single cable for all connections reduces clutter and completes the minimalistic design with a “Clean Back” finish.
