Professional displays are very different from those designed for gaming, where response times, refresh rates, and VRR support sit pretty high on the list. Professional displays are about accurate and vibrant color reproduction for designers and professionals to create and edit with reference-quality visuals.

Hands-on with Samsung's new S95D Glare-Free OLED TV, same deep blacks, no more reflections

Kosta Andreadis | Apr 10, 2024 8:01 AM CDT

When it comes to Samsung TVs, we think about QLED, Quantum Dot, and 8K. And when it comes to TVs in general, Samsung is one of the market leaders across all sizes, budgets, and even display technologies. Samsung joined the OLED party a few years back - after sitting out for a while - and in 2024, its OLED range is leveling up.

Samsung is taking a different approach this year thanks to the introduction of OLED Glare-Free technology. What this means is pretty simple: instead of the traditionally glossy and reflective glass-like finish that compromises most, if not all, modern 4K and 8K TVs, Samsung's new S95D OLED TV features a matte, non-reflective finish.

As the company describes, the result is an OLED TV that can be used in bright and dark rooms. At the recent Samsung 2024 TV launch event in Sydney, we had the chance to check out the new Samsung S95D with OLED Glare-Free technology.

Hands-on with Samsung's glorious 2024 Neo QLED 8K TV powered by AI

Jak Connor | Apr 9, 2024 10:38 PM CDT

Samsung invited a bunch of press to check out its new 2024 line-up of TVs and one of the biggest focusses for the company was the new Neo QLED 8K, which we were lucky enough to go hands-on with.

The Neo QLED 8K is Samsung's latest flagship TV, with much of the focus being on the new AI-powered features thanks to the company's NQ8 AI Gen3 processor, which Samsung says marks a "significant leap in AI TV technology". Notably, this new processor delivers twice as much performance than its predecessor, which can be found in the 4K line - the Neo QLED 4K. So, what's inside the Neo QLED 8K? The gorgeous TV packs many AI-powered features such as upscaling capabilities that Samsung says will take any source video and bump it up to as close to 8K as possible.

During the event we asked what source video was playing during the demo, and Samsung said it was 4K footage. Looking up close at the Neo QLED 8K it was clear to see a significant bump in quality when compared to a 4K TV. However, we didn't get to see any 1080p, or 720p video content upscaled to 8K, which is the large majority of what people consume. As for other AI features, Samsung has implemented AI sound technology called Active Voice Amplifier Pro, a feature that's designed to extract dialogue in content from background noise and make it easier to hear.

Kosta Andreadis | Apr 8, 2024 1:33 AM CDT

Before we dig into ViewSonic's built-to-order 'Customizable All-in-One LED Displays, ' which are available in various aspect ratios and sizes of up to an incredible 760 inches (the modern big-screen TV comes in at only 65 inches) and a whopping 3,840 Hz refresh rate, these are designed as "video walls" for "business, commercial, and public spaces."

Still, you could order one for that "home space to play video games on." That is, until you dig into the full specs, realize that a display is created primarily for digital signage, and discover that the native resolution is a super low 512 x 384 pixels. Dreams = crushed.

Still, for businesses and shipping malls, it's a winner with ViewSonic's innovative mega LED Displays featuring an ultra-slim (31mm), bezel-free design (6mm), and an advanced Glue-on-Board (GOB) surface treatment to protect the display and provide resistance against dust and moisture. ViewSonic says this allows them to be installed in lobbies, bathrooms, and transportation hubs.
