A QLED PANEL FITTED FOR OUTDOORS

A QLED PANEL FITTED FOR OUTDOORS

If you have already placed this television in the corner of your Terrace, you may have thought about the direct incidence of the sun that it will suffer. This TV has been modified with that sort of thing in mind. Therefore, using it during the sun’s hottest hours is not a problem. The Samsung Terrace comes with a QLED panel with a 4K resolution. Specifically, we are facing a screen with 3840 x 2160 pixels. The key point, however, is its ability to hit 2000 nits of brightness. With this specification, the company achieves that the television maintains image quality and good visibility even in an open space.

In this aspect, the anti-reflective screen also helps minimize reflections produced by external light. For its part, Adaptive Picture technology uses various sensors to adjust brightness automatically. The Terrace is the first QLED TV certified for outdoor use by Underwriters Laboratories (UL).

As for auxiliary technologies, the set is led by a Quantum Processor 4K compatible with HDR10 +. It also features 100% DCI-P3 color volume with Quantum Dot. Thus, it is achieved that the reproduction of more than a billion colors at any level of brightness is a reality. Finally, we are talking about Direct Full Array Plus. This rear lighting system adjusts the intensity of colors, blacks, and sharpness, considering the scene on the screen and achieving improved contrast.

WEATHER RESISTANCE AND IMPROVED SOUND

WEATHER RESISTANCE AND IMPROVED SOUND

Samsung The Terrace is an outdoor entertainment solution. And as such, it must include some specification that allows it to withstand inclement weather. Samsung has given the TV IP55 certification. In this way, it has no problem resisting humidity, dust, and heat. According to the company, users can install The Terrace wherever they want without worrying about splashing. However, looking at the instruction manual for more details about the certification included, and its resistance to water and dust is advisable. As for temperatures, Samsung The Terrace is designed to withstand cold and heat. Technically, it is prepared to withstand temperatures of up to -31 degrees and up to 50 degrees.

In addition to resistance, it is important to have a good sound system outdoors. The Terrace has two speakers with a total of 20W RMS. They support Dolby Digital Plus, though not the company’s Q-Symphony system. According to Samsung, the sound has been optimized for open areas with common noise.

SOFTWARE AND ADDITIONAL FEATURES EVERYWHERE

SOFTWARE AND ADDITIONAL FEATURES EVERYWHERE

We are used to Samsung including a long list of extra features on its televisions. The Samsung The Terrace is no exception despite being such a specific product. For example, the connection with mobile devices has been improved thanks to Tap View. In this way, sharing movies or music simply by bringing the phone closer to the TV is possible. This is responsible for detecting the touch and reflecting the content automatically on the screen. Samsung’s Multiview is also enabled in this case. With it, the user can divide their television, display two contents simultaneously and continue watching the main content while viewing the screen of their smartphone. In the case of devices with iOS, they see their compatibility improved thanks to AirPlay 2.

SOFTWARE AND ADDITIONAL FEATURES EVERYWHERE-1

Alexa, Google Assistant, and Bixby are all built into this TV, thanks to Tizen. The operating system that Samsung has spent years developing and adapting to all types of products is responsible for giving life to The Terrace. The most popular apps for viewing and listening to content are in the Samsung store.

SAMSUNG THE TERRACE: PRICE AND REVIEWS

The Samsung The Terrace is a bit of a specific release. The first requirement is to have an outdoor space where to install it. That distances it from a large number of users. Its price, around 4,000 euros, does not help make it a product for the masses. It is likely that Samsung already knows all that. This is a remarkable TV with typical Samsung quality meant for those who can enjoy it.
