SUHD: Samsung’s finest flat-screen 65″ TV

Samsung’s ultra-high performance 4K SUHD TVs include just one series of flat-screen models: the JS8500 series. If you prefer the traditional flat-screen look, but demand maximum picture quality and convenience, the UN65JS8500 offers the cutting-edge color technology and Smart TV features found in the more expensive SUHD models. In fact, this is Samsung’s best-performing flat-screen 65″ TV for 2015.

TV color makes a quantum leap

An LCD TV’s color range depends on the quality of the light produced by its backlight. In recent years, backlights shifted from fluorescent to LEDs, which offer purer light and slightly better color. Now LEDs are getting a major upgrade.

The UN65JS8500 features breakthrough backlight technology. Where conventional LED backlights produce white light, this new design starts with LEDs that produce blue light. This light then shines through a film layer containing billions of red and green nanocrystals, also known as “quantum dots.” The resulting high-purity colored light expands the TV’s color range by 20%, providing richer, more intense hues. An added bonus is a big boost in the TV’s light efficiency to deliver a brighter picture. The UN65JS8500 also boasts 10-bit color processing, which enables over a billion total shades.

Samsung gives you the most 4K viewing options

Right now, the best option for watching 4K content is web streaming. The UN65JS8500 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.

Samsung’s UHD Video Pack (sold separately) lets you instantly make the most of your Samsung Ultra HD TV. Only a little bigger than a smartphone, this 1-terabyte hard drive comes pre-loaded with several full-length movies and nature documentaries, all in spectacular full 4K resolution. Simply connect it to the TV using the supplied USB cable and start enjoying the best picture you’ve ever seen.

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 UN65JS8500. 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.

A Smart TV that’s smarter than most


Samsung’s redesigned Smart Hub offers easy navigation and quick access from a single screen.

This TV’s brain is a super-speedy eight-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 UN65JS8500. 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 UN65JS8500’s screen on your Galaxy phone or Tab. You can leave the room anytime without leaving your entertainment behind.
