Reason why Samsung Electronics is holding a global launching event is because it wants to grow QLED TV as its next-generation driving power. Its intention of focusing into quantum-dot as a technology that will differentiate Samsung Electronics from OLED, which is a technology that is competing against QLED, was also applied to its decision. QLED TV is a product that innovates quality and is a 3rd generation quantum-dot TV that applies metals into quantum-dot particle. It will be Samsung Electronics’ forerunner that will have Samsung Electronics maintain number 1 position in global TV markets which has been maintained for 12 years in a row.
In order to strengthen its position in premium TV markets, Samsung Electronics has decided not to use a name ‘SUHD’ that had been used until last year. Starting from this year, it is going to use a name ‘QLED’ because it will be able to explain to customers about quantum-dot which is the main technology of QLED. In order to popularize a name ‘QLED’, Samsung Electronics is planning to carry out marketing on full-scale in this year.
“We are planning to invite our major customers, media, and popular celebrities from different industries to this launching event.” said a representative for Samsung Electronics. “It will be a place that will increase level of attention towards our products before we launch a new product.”
On this day, Samsung Electronics announced that QLED TV was qualified by VDE, which is a global certification institute in Germany, for the first time in the world as a product that can implement ‘100% color volume’. This indicates that QLED TV will be able to implement purpose of authors of different contents than any other TVs from color representation perspective.
