Samsung’s 2022 TV line-up gets “thumbs-up” from global certification organisations
Samsung Electronics have announced that their 2022 QLED and Lifestyle TVs have been recognised by leading global certification institutes for eye safety and colour technology.
The 2022 Samsung Lifestyle TVs have been awarded “Eye Care” Certification from Verband Deutscher Elektrotechniker (VDE) in Germany, one of Europe’s largest technical-scientific associations with more than 36,000 members.
The certification applies to Samsung’s 2022 Lifestyle TV models including The Frame, The Serif and The Sero. The screens are evaluated on various categories, including “Safety”, “Gentle to the eyes”, flicker level, uniformity and colour fidelity.
The new Lifestyle TVs were assessed for safety from blue light emission and melatonin inhibition levels based on a light hazard classification method set by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC). Samsung’s 2022 Lifestyle TVs satisfy the IEC’s standards for screen flickering, which can cause eye fatigue or headache for viewers. They were also recognised for excellence in colour fidelity and picture quality uniformity, both elements of which contribute to eye comfort level while watching TV.
Additionally, Samsung’s all new 2022 QLED models have received the world’s first “Pantone Validated” certification from Pantone, creator of the Pantone Matching System (PMS).
These models receiving this recognition from Pantone include all 20 newly released models – 15 QLED TVs in both 4K and 8K and five monitors. Samsung’s 2022 QLED TV line-up was recognised for its accurate expression of 2,030 Pantone colours and newly added 110 skin tone shades.
“As TVs become more of an entertainment hub in the home, there’s an increased demand for screens with top-tier picture quality that minimise eye strain,” said Seokwoo Yong, Executive Vice President and Head of R&D Team, Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “This recognition from leading global institutes validates our technology that delivers best-in-class images along with the most comfortable watching experience.”
