What does LG's HDR Pro and Samsung's SUHD really mean?Posted on 11:13am on Monday 1st February 2016 by Walts
This January LG came out with their new flagship Picture-on-Glass TV's, the OLEDG6 and OLEDE6 series. The G6 models come in both 65 and 77 inches, and the E6 as 55 and 65 inches. These new models are incredibly slim, boasting a 2.57 millimeters at the thinnest. LG claims that these new sets will have the best specs when compared to other UHD Alliance competitors, because of the new HDR Pro Technology. The UHD Alliance also gave them “The Ultra HD Premium Certification” that is only given to products that meet the most demanding standards.
LG has taken that Premium Certification and used it to call their brand of HDR the Pro version. Samsung has also taken the same process and applied it to their SUHD TV's, “Samsung's 2016 SUHD TVs feature the worlds only cadmium-free 10-bit Quantum dot display, offering the most true-to-life picture quality, with stunning brightness, exceptional contrast and the most lifelike colors ever offered by Samsung,” Samsung says. The S in SUHD stands for Super UHD.
These new names may be intimidating for customers but rest assured with the UHD Alliance sticker, the TV's will be top of the line with new technology. But when it comes to picture quality and preference everyone may differ, so get yourself into a store and see these new beauties. LG should release to market in the first quarter and for Samsung you can preorder now for the March US release.
