Samsung today announced new additions to its home entertainment line that means to bring the company’s full indoor entertainment experience outdoors. Officially called The Terrace, this new line includes its first outdoor 4K QLED TV as well as a soundbar.
Alongside Samsung’s 4K QLED technology, The Terrace TVs also boast of a handful of smart features and a weather-resistant design with an IP55 rating. The Terrace offers three models: a 55-inch, 45-inch, and a 75-inch. All of which are resistant against water and dust and is fitted for easy outdoor installation.
Daylight won’t pose a problem for The Terrace TVs as they are able to project a brightness level of 2,000 nits, enough for clear pictures even during the day. Additionally, the TVs are also coated with an anti-reflective material for reducing glare and the adaptive picture technology will be able to adjust the image according to the device’s surroundings. Also suited for sports fans, the Terrace also offers a high motion rate of MR240 to combat motion blur during those fast moments.
Samsung also offers The Terrace soundbar as a new outdoor audio solution. Like the TV, it’s also designed to combat weather conditions with its IP55 rating. When outdoors, there may be a lot of unwanted extraneous noises. This is why Samsung added distortion canceling technology to The Terrace soundbar to be able to produce a clear and deep bass sound from its built-in woofers. Additionally, it’s also easy to connect with other devices thanks to the built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capability. The Terrace soundbar can stand on its own, be mounted on walls, or mounted to The Terrace TVs.
Both devices are also capable of a couple of smart features. These include access to Samsung’s virtual assistant, Bigby, as well as Alexa and, soon, Google Assistant to fit any smart home ecosystem.
Samsung has also included content that was introduced early on this year in their lineup of 2020 Samsung Smart TVs. Tizen, the company’s Smart TV platform, will be built in and offer features such as Samsung TV Plus, Samsung Health, and other subscription-based streaming services like Netflix.
Alongside The Terrace, Samsung’s 2020 Lifestyle TV line includes The Frame, TVs made to look like art displays, The Sero, for users in need of horizontal and vertical orientations, and The Serif, a lineup that focuses on the TVs design and aesthetic.
