Optimized Curvature Elevates In-Room Guest Experience through an Immersive and Interactive Display
Guests of five-star hotels and premium hospitality environments expect only the most luxurious accommodations during their stay. This includes in-room technology, creating a great opportunity for tech-savvy and forward-looking hotel managers to transform the guest experience.
Samsung’s HD890W Curved UHD Series offers a unique combination of innovative design and display technologies – including realistic picture quality and interactivity – that complement your sophisticated brand and respond to the expectations of your valued guests. Featuring a cutting-edge chamfer design and curved Ultra-High Definition (UHD) resolution, the HD890W displays offer an exceptional viewing experience.
Through the HD890W Series’ embedded, IP-based LYNK SINC 3.0 solution, hotel managers can connect the displays with existing IP infrastructure to simplify guest communication. LYNK SINC 3.0 enables hotel IT managers to remotely program individual monitors or groups of monitors with custom content. As a result, the HD890W Series eliminates the expenses of both requiring hotel staff to visit individual rooms and maintaining a separate set-top box (STB) to provide updates and interact with guests.
Immersive Realism, Superior Entertainment Through Curved Display
Samsung’s advanced curved display technology elevates standard in-room TV viewing into a realistic and captivating experience. Designed to match the natural curve of the human eye, the HD890W Curved Series enables guests to watch on-screen entertainment from an optimal viewing distance for a uniform and balanced presentation from all areas of the screen. The display’s edge-to-edge curve creates a panoramic effect that extends realism and immersion across a wider and fuller field of view. Furthermore, the display’s natural curvature enhances viewer eye comfort. As a result, guests can enjoy the HD890W Curved Series’ superior picture quality and entertainment-enhancing features for longer periods of time.
Provide a More Memorable, Upscale Guest Experience through UHD Resolution
Guests accustomed to excellent picture quality and clarity at home expect the same viewing experience when staying elsewhere. This had led to a growing popularity of UHD in hospitality environments. Samsung’s HD890U Series delivers this enhanced viewing experience by providing premium and luxury hotel guests exceptionally vivid and detailed images. Featuring UHD resolution (3840 x 2160) that delivers four times the pixels of FHD formats, the HD890U Series showcases each image’s most intricate details for a brilliant and realistic picture.
Enhance Picture Quality through UHD Upscaling and Color Contrast Optimization
Samsung’s advanced, innovative technology transforms non-UHD content into a viewing experience near UHD levels of image detail and picture quality. Thanks to Samsung’s UHD Picture Engine, all HD890U displays can transform the clarity levels of broadcast TV shows, movies and video on demand offered in FHD formats into ones comparable with standard UHD content. The four-step upscaling process analyzes images, removes noise, upscales lower resolution content to UHD-like clarity and then further refines details for true-to-life picture quality.
Samsung’s UHD Dimming technology optimizes contrast, color and details to deliver deep blacks, pure whites and brilliant color. The precise dimming process divides the entire screen into individual virtual areas, intelligently analyzes each area and then optimizes the LED backlight for better color, contrast and detail enhancement. As a result, viewers can enjoy a crystal-clear picture with minimized image distortion.
Conveniently manage guest room TVs and content with an IP-based solution
The upgraded LYNK SINC solution makes it easy to confirm each room’s check-in, checkout or network status and even create a welcome message that displays on the screen when a guest checks in. Hotel staff can choose a TV or group of TVs and remotely program on and off times, as well as, update firmware and even reboot the system.
LYNK SINC's new function, IPTV Standalone Solution, is available without SINC content through a free license. Through this function, hotel personnel can control content by editing the IPTV channel list and cloning the channel list to a USB device and copying it to individual TVs. This way, managers can efficiently offer guests IP TV without having to purchase any additional solution.
Enhance guests’ interactive entertainment experience through wide variety of embedded applications
With LYNK SINC 3.0, properties can delight guests with the same interactive entertainment they experience with their personal devices on in-room displays. And using customized widgets, hotel managers can design the specific content they need to enhance the guest experience. Also, hotels can provide up-to-date flight information* so guests can coordinate checkout times with flight departures and send personalized, real-time messages.
Samsung Smart Hub provides a gateway to a variety of web-based apps and allows guests to conveniently access social networking sites (SNS) through the hotel's IP network for enhanced TV content based on their individual needs. Smart Hub also enables guests to use Internet applications the same way they use them on other devices, providing an enjoyable "home-away-from-home" experience.
