The 4k with HDR TV Trend
The center piece of any home entertainment system, your TV, says a lot about how serious you are when it comes to watching movies, sports or television. If you looked at TV’s a few years ago the cream of the crop were 1080p HD TVs with about 2 million pixels. Today, multiply that by four and you will come to the 4K UHD or Ultra High Definition Television. That means 8 million pixels that are capable of giving you high dynamic range (HDR), allowing for a greater range in brightness levels for every color.
Introducing Curved QLED TV. An unrivaled, realistic picture made possible by a billion unique colors created by Samsung’s proprietary Quantum Dots. See it all come to life on a Curved, Boundless 360° Design™ featuring a sleek, metal back and curved screen that draws you into the action. The Invisible Connection™ and One Connect Box streamline and simplifies connections to other devices while reducing unsightly clutter. As smart as it is beautiful, QLED TV recognizes what’s connected to it and lets you control what you want to watch, all with one remote. No matter what you are watching, this gorgeous TV fits elegantly into your home, either on the wall or on a TV stand.
People often fixate on the visual aspect of a home theater system and as a result, forget about what can truly make it an immersive experience: audio. The beauty and quality of a film can be lost on a viewer if the soundtrack and audio counterparts are not on par with the television. While installed surround sound was once the benchmark for any superior sound system, there is a new trend quickly gaining popularity; soundbars. Our brand partner Sonos has reengineered the soundbar to not only sound better, but look better, bringing the finishing touch to your audio system.
The all new PLAYBASE from Sonos adds pulse-pounding, full-theater sound to all your movies, TV shows, sports and games–and it wirelessly streams your favorite music, too. Its slim, low profile design practically vanishes beneath your TV, yet it fills your entire viewing room with spectacular widescreen sound you just can’t miss. It’s a new, better way to fill each day with the sounds you love.

According to USA Today, a recent report from Accenture shows that 87% of consumers use a second screen while watching television.
