Dec 04. 2018

Users can now create daily artistic moment, and enjoy prestigious artwork around the world

Hong Kong – 30 November, 2018 – Among the many TV innovations that Samsung has pioneered over the years, the company will always be remembered for transforming the TV from being a black box to a work of art with The Frame. Samsung Electronics H.K. Co. Ltd., today announced the latest version – The Frame 2.0.

 

The Frame 2.0 is the evolution of Samsung’s award-winning lifestyle TV, The Frame. The Frame 2.0  firstly introduced Art Store to Hong Kong, with more than 900 available works of art, it help to transforms the living room into a dynamic gallery space. The Samsung Art Store houses an ever-growing and diverse library of artwork from some of the most prominent museums, galleries and artists around the world – including timeless classics such as The Starry Night (1889) by Vincent Van Gogh and The Last Supper (1498) by Leonardo da Vinci, also more than 30 iconic pieces of photography from The New York Times, 21 artworks from the Victoria and Albert Museum, and 5 pieces from Desmond Leung, a Hong Kong-based visual artist.

 

“The perception of a TV has been altered since we revealed The Frame last year, and TVs have been shaped to become a part of home design. This year, we make a leap forward to address increasing consumer demands on TV, and engineered The Frame 2.0  that enables class up living room by transforming into an art wall,” said Ellen Fu, Vice President, CE & Enterprise Business, Samsung Electronics H.K. Co., Ltd. “By introducing Samsung Art Store to Hong Kong, consumers can now easily bring exceptional art pieces into their home through The Frame Art Store, and transform their home into an art gallery.” 

 

The trace of local artists could be found among the many artworks in Art Store , including Desmond Leung, a Hong Kong-based visual artist. Desmond’s inspirations are collective ideas of metaphysics, nature and the universe, human body and spirituality, and others. He is devoted in exploring contemporary aesthetics and meaning by merging the mediums of painting, ink art, moving image and new media into a time-based art form. Desmond said, “This is my honor to collaborate with Samsung. The Frame Art Store is a diversified and invaluable art platform that showcases art pieces of myself and also artists around the world. Art pieces now are no longer confined to a physical gallery, but transform into artworks at home and can be seen anytime. Also, The Frame 2.0's superior screen technology enables the pigments, oil paints, watercolors and inks that I used can be truly reflected, which help to fully express the art of creation.”

 

A Gallery in your Living Room 

The Samsung Art Store is an optimized platform offering new ways for consumers to access new pieces of art. Consumers can use Slideshow to set their personally selected artworks that automatically changes at intervals of between 10 minutes and 7 days  according to personal settings. A various collections are pre-installed in Art Store, ranging in the categories of artist, type and style, enables consumers to select their favorite artworks and create their own collection of masterpieces, and provide easier access to their favorite pieces. Whether they prefer to change the look of their room in daytime and nighttime or want to bring a fresh vibe to their décor for a dinner party, consumers can customize The Frame 2.0 to create their preferred aesthetic in any room.

 

Make Better Use of Space 

The thing that sets The Frame 2.0  apart is the way it transforms itself when the screen is switched off. Motion and brightness sensors convert The Frame 2.0 from TV into a lifelike work of art. Just like how a framed picture looks different depending on the time of day, these sensors also adjust the screen brightness based on the ambient light in the room.

By coming with the One Invisible Connection, a slim, translucent cable that transmits both power and video gear to the TV, users can connect all devices without any messy tangled wires. Also, the One Connect Box allows connected devices to be further away and not clutter. The Frame 2.0 ensures that users are provided not only better design but also better viewing experience.

Also, The Frame 2.0 seamlessly blends in with home décor. When mounted, it hangs flush to the wall thanks to Samsung’s No Gap Wall-Mount*. The selection of customizable magnetic bezel options – white, walnut and beige wood, plus new color black – also helps users to swap the monitor edge’s color to complement the room’s style.

 

Stunning Quality with User-friendly Functionality

When it’s switched on, The Frame 2.0 features a crisp and clear 4K UHD screen with HDR10+ technology, so that users can view the content just the way the director intended.

With Effortless Log-in, users can quickly transfer their Wi-Fi and Samsung account details from their phone to the TV via Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) without having to remember or re-enter their password. Samsung’s proprietary Smart Hub menu enables consumers to intuitively navigate across streaming services, consoles and live TV while the Universal Guide feature curates content based on each user’s unique taste.
