Sleek and skinny on the outside, Samsung’s UN55JU7100 packs a load of breakthrough TV technology — much of it borrowed from the company’s elite-and-expensive SUHD TVs. Now that 4K Ultra HD TV is firmly established as the standard for next-generation TV, Samsung has focused on giving you more ways to have an eye-popping 4K viewing experience.
Right now, the best option for watching 4K content is web streaming. The UN55JU7100 includes “HEVC” decoding, so it can display the streamed 4K movies and TV series available from Netflix® and Amazon Instant Video with no additional gear needed. All of the set’s HDMI inputs support HDCP 2.2 copy protection, which means you’ll be able to enjoy 4K sources like Ultra HD Blu-ray movies when they arrive in late 2015. And this TV will be ready for what’s coming further in the future, thanks to Samsung’s One Connect Mini hub, which provides a goof-proof way to upgrade the TV’s connections.
True 4K content will continue to be scarce for a while, but that won’t keep you from enjoying a remarkable picture. Samsung made 4K upconversion a top priority as they developed the video processing circuitry for the UN55JU7100. Their UHD Upscaling automatically upconverts any signal to match the screen’s 4K resolution. All of your current video sources — Blu-ray player, cable or satellite TV box, game console — will look better than ever.
This TV’s brain is a Quad-Core processor that lets you browse the web without having to interrupt what you’re watching. Besides surfing the web you can do things like multitask or use one app while downloading another. Whether your connection is wired or wireless, you can do a quick web search while you watch movies and TV shows, and enjoy TV while you chat with friends and family online. Samsung’s on-board selection of streaming video and music apps is second to none.
The AllShare™ Play feature lets you wirelessly access and stream content from any compatible device. If you own a Samsung Galaxy smartphone or Tab, you can share movies, photos, and music via the UN55JU7100. Your Wi-Fi® network lets you do things like “toss” photos from your phone or tablet to the screen with the swipe of a finger. Or push streaming video like Netflix movies from device to screen.
Sending content from your phone to your TV is cool, and going TV-to-phone can be even cooler. Just download Samsung’s Smart View app and use the TV View feature to mirror whatever’s on the UN55JU7100’s screen on your Galaxy phone or Tab. You can leave the room anytime without leaving your entertainment behind.
Movie theaters have switched to 4K projectors in recent years, and now you can enjoy amazing 4K picture quality at home. Ultra HD TVs with 4K resolution offer four times the detail of 1080p HDTVs. Some major TV makers offer media players so you can download and watch true 4K content for the best possible picture. Netflix® is already streaming some of their content in 4K, and other services plan to offer 4K video later this year.
