Now that we are almost halfway through 2018, all the major home entertainment equipment manufacturers have long since launched their main hardware lines and all their associated features. In the months since CES 2018, retailers and customers alike have had a chance to really get to know what features Samsung, Sony, and the like have brought us this year.
We now take a look at Samsung’s ‘Ambient Mode’, which should not be mixed with ‘Ambient Display’ on leading smartphones from the same company and offers more than one or two reasons (if more were needed) to keep your Samsung TV on for longer.
” What exactly IS Ambient Mode? ” we hear you say. Well, let’s explain.
For a long time, the focus has rightly been on what a TV screen can do in terms of picture quality and high-definition display of images. While these aspects are still super important for any modern television, Samsung has really thought out of the box about this.
Samsung’s 2018 range of QLED models come with Ambient Mode, which is a real ground-breaking shift to what your TV can do for you when you’re not actually watching it. It’s kind of a ‘no blacker screens’ deal.
First, if you want your QLED TV to literally blend in with its surroundings, you can take advantage of a very clever feature that turns it into a sort of chameleon. By taking an image of the TV and its surroundings via the SmartThings app with a Samsung smartphone, the smart software algorithm inside creates an image that matches the wall behind it, leaving it almost invisible except for the outer edge.
Of course, there will be many owners of models like the Samsung QE55Q9FN QLED TV, who are justifiably proud of their purchase and don’t want it to fade too far into the background where no one can see it. Other choices for the aptly named ‘Ambient’ setting include displaying photo albums, great-looking digital clocks, and even moving mountain landscapes that change to reflect what’s happening with the local weather.
The makers say it’s the perfect way to connect your home to the outside world, and we’re inclined to agree based on what we’ve seen of the feature ourselves.
The icing on the cake
Remember, Ambient Mode is just one of the many reasons why 2018’s Samsung QLED TVs are among the best and best performing models the industry has seen. Blacker blacks, more dynamic colors the best sound, and more interactive features than ever crammed into a single television are all reasons to come see them for yourself.
