The European Directive on Batteries and Accumulators aims to minimise the impact of batteries on the environment and encourage the recovery of the materials they contain. In the UK, regulations on the recycling of batteries and accumulators (rechargeable batteries) were Introduced in 2009. The Waste Batteries Regulations aim to significantly increase UK collection and recycling of used portable batteries from 3% in 2007 to 25% by 2012, rising to at least 45% in 2016.
The battery symbol on a product or on its packaging indicates that the product must not be disposed of with general household waste. Instead, it is the consumer’s responsibility to dispose of their waste batteries at a designated collection point so that they can be recycled. The separate collection and recycling of batteries at the time of dispo sal will help to conserve natural resources and ensure that they are recycled in a manner that protects human health and the environment. A comprehensive list of battery recycling centres can be obtained from: www.recycle-more.co.uk
All Samsung products that are subject to the Batteries Directive are compliant with the UK battery and accumulator Requirements. In accordance with national law, SAMSUNG Electronics (UK) Ltd is a member of an approved batteries producer compliance scheme. This scheme collects, treats and disposes of batteries on Samsung’s behalf.
Samsung Ultra High Definition TV - 4 times more detail than Full HD
UHD Upscaling - enjoy all your favourite live TV shows and Blu-Ray discs crisper than ever before
UHD Dimming - amazing crystal clear images with superior contrast optimised for UHD images
Future Ready - unique to Samsung, renew your TV to the latest technology and UHD standards1
4 times the Full HD resolution
Ultra HD viewing means you can see every intricate detail on the screen clearer than ever. Your Samsung UHD TV offers a resolution four times higher than Full HD, with accurate true-to-life colour. Enjoy a picture that’s optimised for even greater clarity and detail than you’ve ever seen before.
UHD upscaling enhances the quality of all of your viewing
Thanks to the Samsung UHD Picture Engine, you can enjoy various kinds of content with near UHD-level picture quality, even if it’s not from a UHD source. Samsung’s innovative processing enhances broadcast TV shows and movies as well as video on demand and more. That means not only does it process UHD sources at crisp 4K resolution, it even converts lower-resolution content to a level of clarity that’s almost like Ultra High Definition.
A more detailed picture made for UHD resolution
Samsung’s advanced UHD dimming technology brings the ideal level of contrast and colour to your UHD viewing. The higher resolution of UHD also means that the picture requires more processing for a highly-detailed image. That’s why Samsung UHD dimming technology has been developed to process black and white as optimally as possible and produce colours that are far more vivid.
TV technology is always evolving and so does Samsung UHD TV. With UHD Evolution Kit, your Samsung UHD TV can be updated to be compatible with future UHD standards without buying a new TV. Get ready for future UHD standards with Future Ready.1
