ISE represents an important moment for Samsung as the global leader in visual display technology, and each year the company showcases its industry-defining, award-winning display technology. But while large displays may have drawn the crowds at this year’s ISE, many other significant developments were announced onsite that you don’t want to miss!
2020 QLED 8K SMART Signage (QPT-8K)
This year’s QLED 8K SMART signage is the world’s first 8K display capable of 24/7 operation, providing businesses with the ultimate in eye-catching visual clarity all day, every day. These latest displays also support connectivity with up to four separate content sources, all of which can be displayed simultaneously in 4K resolution. The new signage is available in 65-, 75-, 82- and 98-inch versions and will be available globally in the first half of 2020.
Expanded Lineup for The Wall
The Wall is Samsung’s award-winning modular display based on microLED technology. This year, Samsung expanded its lineup by announcing a 292-inch 8K version of The Wall Luxury, ideal for high-end residences, and The Wall for Business for commercial applications. The latest displays come with a range of configurable and customizable sizes and ratios, including 219- and 292-inch 4K versions and astounding 437- and 583-inch 8K versions of The Wall for Business. The largest versions of The Wall ever unveiled, these new versions are ideal for corporate flagship installations.

Designed especially for retail stores, Samsung’s IER series provides ultimate flexibility. The display supports advanced design and unique display configurations for indoor retail or other business environments with portrait, landscape, curved, convex and even concave orientations up to 3000R with ceiling and wall mounting options.
MagicINFO Analytics for Optimized Campaigns
The Samsung MagicINFO solution solves many of the most common challenges faced by businesses looking to utilize digital signage. A comprehensive platform that offers seamless remote digital signage software and hardware management, Samsung MagicINFO allows content teams to update message designs and schedules from any location at any time. At ISE, Samsung showcased MagicINFO Analytics and its partner ecosystem in a grocery store setting, bringing to life the powerful set of tools that allow advertisers to take action to ensure ads are delivered at the most contextually relevant times.

The monitor’s superior performance has even been certified by TÜV Rheinland, the leading international certification organization, recognizing the G9 monitor as the industry’s first high performance 1000R curved display with Eye Comfort certification.
Tizen’s Independent Performance Review
Perhaps one of the most significant things to be unveiled at ISE this year was the results of a performance comparison review between Samsung’s Tizen operating system and external media player widely used in the signage industry, conducted by the signageOS Research Center. The review showed that Samsung’s Tizen 4.0 System on Chip (SoC), embedded in all Samsung SMART signage, can efficiently deliver for nearly all of the most common and relevant use-cases in digital signage. This means that Samsung SMART signage is certified to perform all the tasks that are required of it without needing any external media players, saving users money, energy and space.
