Samsung SUHD 10 bit vs 8 bit LCD panelsPosted on 12:00am on Wednesday 27th May 2015 by Walts
The S in Samsung SUHD means that the model at hand is the premium version in that particular line up. Similar to a Galaxy S and Samsung is bridging the "S" in all platforms to make a uniform Flagship Samsung line up and overall makes it simple to purchase the best in class.
The 2015 SUHD Samsung TV line up all have a new 10 bit panel verses a 8 bit panel. From a numbers perspective, this does not sound like a big increase. However, from a color shade or range you go from 16.7 million (8 bit) to over 1 BILLION (10 bit) shades of color. Later this year, another technology will be released called HDR or High Dynamic Range and the 10 bit panel will help produce "blacker" blacks and "whiter" whites.
Amazon and Netflix plan on releasing several HDR titles this year . The JS9500 series is the best performing TV ever developed from Samsung and it uses backlit LED technology to improve brightness 2.5 times compared to the 2014 HU9000 series. Walt's currently stocks several various models so feel free to contact us to not only go over the lineup but also help you select the best TV for your situation. We will have the UN78JS9500 in our Samsung showcase display for you to experience in our Tempe warehouse.
