What is QLED TV and Why You’ll Want One
The QLED TV in your home. Time to set up.
So, you’ve decided to bring a new QLED TV into your home. You head to the store, pick out the right size for your room, and bring it home. It’s out of the box and ready to go, and you can’t believe how good it looks. In fact, you realize it would look good anywhere you put it. While admiring its four-side bezel-less front, your eyes wander to the back that’s smooth and sleek—until the part that’s been cut out specially for the No-Gap Wall Mount. We designed the back panel so that the mount connects inside the back panel rather than to its exterior, allowing the TV to sit as close against the wall as possible for a seamless look in your home. Plus, it’s super easy to install. You’ll be finished quickly so you can get on your favorite show in no time at all.
Turn on the TV to see the real world, in HDR.
It’s mounted and been swiveled to the ideal angle for your viewing pleasure, and now it’s time to turn on your new TV. But whoa! These colors are so vivid. This is like watching real life on your TV. That’s because QLED TVs can express 100% color volume. Color volume is what you get when you add light to colors and a fantastic range of hues is created. This is all thanks to the New Metal Quantum dot, which is uniform in shape and expresses color in a fine and dense manner that makes color realistic and keeps details clear.
You also notice that it’s easy on the eyes while still being really detailed. What’s at work there is the bright HDR technology. HDR stands for High-Dynamic Range, and in QLED TVs it can express HDR1500–2000, which mimics the brightness of 1500–2000 candles and is really close to what occurs naturally.1 So details shine through.
You’ve connected all your devices and now have all you need at a press of the One Remote Control.
When it comes time to plug in your devices you realize there are no ports in the TV. But the Invisible Connection allows you to tuck your devices away for an elegant, minimalistic visual wherever you put your TV. Every device that’s plugged in is connected to the TV via the Invisible Connection and automatically detected, meaning no more playing detective to find out what’s plugged in where.2 And you don’t have to point the smart remote at each device to control it, just point at the QLED TV.
You can also download the Smart View app onto your phone to easily control your QLED TV in between text messages. You can even use it as a game controller for cloud games.3
The sun has set, the lights are turned on, and the QLED TV still has the same great picture quality.
After a long day, you decide to kick back and watch some TV. You debate whether or not you want to turn on the lamp, since you don’t want the glare, but ultimately you decide you should probably not risk kicking the coffee table in the dark. But wait, there’s less glare on the TV! That’s because Ultra Black minimizes reflections on the screen so the picture comes in clear, regardless of the ambient lighting.
There’s also Precision Black, which uses dimming technology to ensure the optimal contrast on-screen. Ultra Black’s reflectivity improvement works together with Precision Black technology that automatically adjusts the brightness of every scene. So no matter if it’s a sunny day with rays streaming through the windows or the dark of night with every lamp in the house on, you’ll get great picture clarity and stunning, lifelike colors on your QLED TV.
No more fighting over the best seat (because every seat is!)
Now that you’re comfortable with the newest addition to your home, it’s time to introduce it to everybody. So you invite your friends over for a day full of TV fun. The Smart Hub has plenty of content no matter what your crew wants to do: stream a movie, play a game, watch some baseball… There’s something for everyone.
Once you’ve settled on content, the battle for the best seat begins. Time out! The QLED TV is full of technology that works together to prevent distortion to the onscreen picture so that whether you’re sitting on the couch, the chair, or if you’re moving around while cleaning up after your friend who just spilled popcorn everywhere, you see the same great picture with stunning colors and impressive clarity.
