Samsung updating existing UHD TVs to HDMI 2.0a

It's all coming together

  • Samsung’s commitment to provide people with TVs that produce the ultimate viewing experience was taken a step further at IFA 2015.
    We already knew that the company’s range of SUHD TVs are capable of displaying High Dynamic Range (HDR) video, giving you greater contrast, brighter colours, better shadow detail and all that good stuff but in their current state they wouldn’t be able to take an HDR signal from an external source, such as a 4K Blu-ray player. To do that you would need an HDMI 2.0a compatible input but the products were released with HDMI 2.0 capability, only.

    Well it’s good news for owners of those Samsung TVs, as their are the first on the market to support the new HDMI 2.0a specification, which enables the transmission of HDR metadata across external HDR-compatible sources. The software update will broaden the spectrum of HDR content available for consumers in Samsung’s SUHD TVs which range in size from 48-inch to 105-inches.

    Hopefully we’ll be able to get concrete details on dates and models from Samsung very soon.
