Be blown away by the brilliant brightness of Samsung’s Quantum Dot display. Boasting top-shelf HDR, crystal-clear 4K and crisp moth-eye technology, this set’s explosion of colour will change the way you look at your media. Coming with a revamped Smart platform, you’ll enjoy console-less gaming on Playstation Now, control your home through SmartThings and access all the apps you’ll ever need. Finished with a glorious bezel-less design, the KS8000 is a triumph of audio-visual entertainment.
Eye-Popping HDR 1,000
Forays into colour-boosting High Dynamic Range (HDR) have begun, and Samsung are one of the forerunners. As members of the newly-founded UHD Alliance, they've delivered top-of-the-range HDR with a staggering 10-bit colour depth. This means that there are over a billion individual colours to deepen your view and show shades you’ve never seen in home entertainment before. Samsung's HDR 1000, indicating 1000 nits of shimmering brightness, gives a glorious glow that will knock your socks off. Usually, studios are forced to dilute the colour of their shows and films to fit on our TVs. Now, HDR screens like the KS8000 can channel content from studio-to-living room with the same precision and utterly otherworldly hues.
Razor Sharp 4K
To respond to screens getting bigger, brands have packed their screens with more pixels. This 55-inch screen has four times the number of pixels than 1080p HD TVs, delivering stunning realism, natural motion and incredible detail. Experience this high-spec picture across a range of broadcasts, movies, sports and more thanks to 4K upscaling. As it converts lower resolution content to near-4K quality, anything you watch on the big screen will be truly extraordinary.
Vibrant Quantum Dot SUHD Display
Samsung add even more colour to their HDR and SUHD with a mass of super-tiny nanocrystals that give deeper shades. This tech delivers 30% more colour accuracy and 64 times more gradation to each pixel than standard sets. So, the KS8000 will give your living room an insane lustre that plunges into the delightful depths of every show and movie.
Ultra-Black Moth-Eye Technology
Embrace blacker blacks, whiter whites and an all-round contrast bonanza with Samsung’s new Ultra-Black tech. The KS9000 absorbs natural light in the same way that a moth does to see better at night, so your set won’t suffer from frustrating glare. This way, you won’t need to close your curtains to keep colours sharp. Furthermore, this TV’s Peak Illuminator Pro doubles the depth of blacks of standard 4K, giving your home-viewing premium polish.
Sensational Smart Platform
With Samsung’s revamped Smart Hub, it’s never been easier to access your favourite media. Stream 4K content from the likes of Amazon, YouTube and Netflix, download hundreds of apps* and catch all this as soon as you turn your set on with the Live TV and over the top (OTT) functions. Furthermore, Samsung’s new Smart Control remote automatically detects other devices such as set-top boxes or games consoles, so you don’t have to juggle multiple remotes.
This fresh feature lets you play a rich catalogue of PS3 games through your TV. All you need is a Playstation 3 or 4 controller and a subscription to the service (sold separately) to get gaming.
Control Your Connected Home With SmartThings Extend
Developed alongside SmartThings, Samsung’s SUHD TV will have built-in software to let you do anything from switching on your lights to locking your doors**. It will connect to over 200 SmartThings compatible devices and put your home under complete wireless control – all from your TV. This way, you’ll be able to set the right scene in your living room without getting off the sofa. Please note that this feature is coming soon.
Bezel-less 360º Design
On or off, the KS8000 looks extraordinary. Without a bezel, your focus will be pinned on the glorious screen. To keep with its elegant look, Samsung have removed screws from the rear of the TV and added a nifty cable management system to keep stray wires in check. This set isn’t just a screen, it’s a work of art that will sink into your décor seamlessly.
10-Year Screen Burn Warranty
Samsung are offering a 10 year screen burn warranty to all customers. This way, you’re covered – no matter what. Just register your TV here after you’ve set it up.
With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller, choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Soundbars enhance your TV’s sound quality and add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.
