The 55" UD55E-S Video Wall Display from Samsung is a Full HD display that is pre-calibrated for the broadcast industry to work with the unique lighting conditions present in enclosed studios. Broadcasters require strict color expression fidelity between what they film and what viewers see. To address these distinct needs, this display features a specialized panel with a lower color temperature range that complements broadcast camera standards. This temperature range ensures that the color of news footage and graphics are displayed accurately from all viewing angles. The narrow bezel-to-bezel design and high brightness also minimize distractions, ensuring an eye-catching presentation that will keep viewers focused on your news content.
Broadcast studios risk losing color consistency when translating news footage and graphics between cameras and displays if the displays have not been properly color calibrated. To eliminate the color irregularities that can diminish professional quality broadcasts, this display comes with advanced factory tuning, durable hardware, and user calibration tools. A multi-step factory calibration process ensures high-performing uniform brightness and color consistency out-of-the-box, preventing studios from having to make adjustments. After calibration, the display offers a local uniformity of more than 90% for color accuracy across the entire display. The calibration process also maintains white balance, while simultaneously achieving detailed grayscale coloring through a multi-step gamma calibration.
Samsung Color Expert enables convenient user management of brightness and color value based on specific broadcast needs. Using the color calibration features, broadcast studios can maintain accurate color expression and manageable color values, regardless of content type or need.
Unlike conventional signage panels that offer a color value temperature of 10,000°K, the UD55E-S features a color value temperature range of 2,800-6,500°K to ensure optimized color expression for broadcast cameras. This flexible low temperature operation expands choice and enables the adjustment of color expression depending on the situation. As a result, broadcasters can enhance news footage and graphic presentation. This display is compatible with both portrait and landscape layout orientations.
Samsung's UD55E-S display enables smooth and simple navigation of the most commonly used picture settings through a home menu designed to accommodate the specific needs of broadcast environments. Through the home menu interface, broadcasters can easily select color values between 2,800-6,500°K. Changing color space values (R/G/B) and fine-tuning white balance settings is also possible by using the home menu. The user-friendly interface enables the convenient updating and customization of picture settings for a variety of real-time content formats, resulting in better overall performance of broadcasts.
Designed for 24/7 operation, the UD55E-S supports dynamic content with a consistent picture quality and color presentation, making it great for round-the-clock newsrooms and broadcast studio environments. The display's high brightness of 700 cd/m² combined with a 3.5mm bezel-to-bezel screen design ensures attention is focused on the content rather than the display itself.
With a built-in media player through its embedded chip, 3rd Generation SSSP, the UD55E-S uses a quad-core CPU to streamline digital content operation and improve total cost of ownership (TCO). As a result, content managers can easily install the video wall and begin sharing content with target audiences with minimal expense or hassle. Samsung's MagicInfo S3 content management software comes integrated with the 3rd Generation SSSP. Compatible with a wide range of image, text, and video file formats and sizes, MagicInfo S3 simplifies the content creation and server-to-screen upload process for added convenience. The user-friendly program also ensures a visual fit for any environment through an extensive library of widgets, stickers, stamps, and font styles.
Available separately is a 39mm deep wall mount for easy installation and calibration to hold the display in place without distracting viewers. As the wall mount is sized to the dimensions of the video wall, users can simply install the mount first. This user-friendly design eliminates the need to measure the wall mount and calculate the gap to properly size, which can be experienced with standard video wall mounting systems. Once installed, the mounting system offers three-dimensional axis tuning, including x-axis (up-and-down with rotational screws), y-axis (left and right with rail movement), and z-axis (push and pull pop-up capability), for effortless alignment of individual displays to form a continuous, gap-free presentation. This dimensional consistency and easy adjustability also prevents the need to dismantle the entire video wall should one specific section require adjustment.
