Samsung today announced that the 2017 QLED TV series that it unveiled last month at the Consumer Electronics Show 2017 has received a certification from Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker (VDE), a world-class testing and certification association, for the TV’s ability to produce 100 percent color volume. VDE has provided this certification for Samsung’s latest TV lineup based on its expertise in color volume testing.
The company says that this certification is a mark of the ability of its new TV series to provide a consistently high quality picture.
Color volume is a standard of color expression that measures two elements of the TV in 3D space, the color gamut and the brightness level. The color gamut is related to the most amount of colors that can be physically displayed while the peak brightness level represents the maximum brightness level of the display.
The larger the color gamut the higher the brightness will be and thus the TV is going to have bigger color volume. Samsung says that its new QLED TV’s expanded color volume provides more realistic, accurate, and vibrant HDR images as the director or content creator intended, in both dark and bright scenes.
The company further adds that the QLED TV can capture “the subtlest differences in color pertaining to brightness,” something that’s not easily depicted in conventional 2D color space. It mentions that with its peak brightness of 1,500 to 2,000 nit the QLED TV bags an industry first by expressing 100 percent color volume.
Samsung is going to start shipping its 2017 QLED TV lineup later this month in the United States.
