If there is something that has become clear from Samsung in the TV segment, it is its commitment to 8K resolution in its Neo QLED flagships. They just announced that they will exclusively offer content from the new Lord of the Rings series in that native resolution.
The Lord Of The Rings: The Rings Of Power series will arrive on Amazon Prime Video on September 2. We have already seen a trailer and, for the moment, it is visually promising.
Samsung has a long-term collaboration agreement with Amazon and for this reason, they have announced that there will be exclusive content in 8K resolution, as a sneak peeks of the series.
That is, the series will not be available in that 8K HDR10 + / Dolby Atmos resolution. It will stay in the hackneyed 4K but this additional content will.
Samsung will show 25 minutes of the first two episodes on its video wall at the flagship in New York as well as different content on the LED screens in Times Square, Piccadilly Circus, and Piazza del Duomo in Milan, among others, announcing the availability of these contents extra in 8K.
It is the first time we see this type of collaboration and it is a small step towards 8K resolution, a step that is getting very hard to take.
On screens with a diagonal size of fewer than 75 inches at a normal viewing distance of 2-3 meters, it is difficult to tell the difference.
However, Samsung’s Neo QLED also brings upscaling technologies to offer 4K content intelligently rescaled to take advantage of this 8K resolution.
Be that as it may, we will still have to wait a few days to be able to see the first episodes of this series that continue to stretch Tolkien’s universe, which, it seems, still has a lot of life left.
