SOME HOT TRENDS AT THE CES THIS YEAR
You’ve probably heard about UHD or ‘4K’ TV’s — just beautiful to watch. 4K TV's offer 4 times the resolution and clarity of Full High Def TV’s. Then the typical problem: no 4K content to play on that beautiful 4K TV. Well, starting next month, and for the first time, you’ll be able to watch UHD movies directly from physical UHD Blu-ray discs on Samsung’s Ultra HD Blu-ray Player.
This next-gen UHD Blu-ray player offers 4 times the resolution and 64 times higher color expression than standard Blu-ray players. The picture is so realistic, you’re seeing exactly what the director intended.
And, you can stream content from your favorite services through this player, and watch your existing DVD and Blu-ray collection in near UHD quality thanks to upscaling technology.
