Product Information

product description

The JS8500 Samsung TV goes ‘beyond 4K UHD’ to deliver a home theatre experience like never before. Displaying an enhanced picture quality, an all-new Smart TV system and access to more 4K streaming video services, the 48-inch curved screen television means that you can enjoy all your favourite media in the most superior level of detail.

Sensational SUHD, 1900 PQI
With 4K SUHD you can now experience stunning colours, deep contrasts, incredible brightness and 4K resolution which provides you with an enhanced viewing experience. The JS8500 features nano-crystal technology which transmits different colours of light depending on their size to reveal a brighter, more true-to-life picture. This picture enhancing technology produces a wide range of more accurate colours which provides you with 64 times more colour expression than conventional UHD TVs.

This, along with Peak Illuminator Pro which delivers 2 x deeper blacks than UHD 4K TVs, leverages the full vibrancy of your favourite media and entertainment. And better still, Ultra-HD dimming and Precision Black Pro delivers deep, real blacks which are 2x deeper than a UHD 4K TV with no loss of detail as well as pure, clean whites for the ultimate in picture clarity and contrast.

Super Smart Platform
The JS8500 features an all-new Smart TV system. With Quick Connect, the Samsung TV can automatically connect to Samsung Smartphones once paired up with Bluetooth, so you can share video content between devices. Better still, the Smart system even has the ability to work with a multitude of games apps, providing console-free game play direct through the TV itself.
Apps shown are available or coming soon on all 2015 Smart TV models, Blu-Ray and Home Theatre Players

The new interface to the Smart Hub is more responsive and playful too. This will enable you to easily access the content you want to watch. It has been simplified to be able to watch TV whilst it displays your most recent content and even displays featured recommendations so you can discover more content to watch. And what’s more with Smart view 2.0, you can even watch your TV entertainment on your mobile device – or your mobile media on your TV.

Ultra-high definition 4K video streaming
Samsung’s JS8500 can now access 4K video streaming services from the likes of Netflix and Amazon, offering UHD content and popular shows like House of Cards and Better Call Saul. What’s more, 4K Ultra HD televisions can even make standard content look better with upscaling. This means that you won’t have to wait to enjoy 4K content on the big screen because the TV will automatically adjust the high-definition picture to a near 4K Ultra-High Definition quality for you.

Ultra-High Definition upscaling
No matter what you are watching on the JS8500 TV, you can enjoy great picture quality all the time. Samsung’s unique upscaling capabilities uses a four step process which converts lower resolution content, such as live TV, to a level of near 4K ultra-HD detail. This means that you can watch all your old favourites and new shows in the highest level of detail.

Two tuners
With two tuners, it means that you have both Freeview HD and freesat HD built-in to the TV. You can split the screen and watch two channels at once, or watch one and record the other to an external drive via the USB port. No more missing out when your favourite shows clash!

Curved for immersion
Deeper- The 55-inch curved screen of the JS8500 surrounds you while Samsung’s Auto Depth Enhancer technology creates greater depth of image. Wider – The screen offers a wider field of view bringing the corners closer to you. Clearer – The curved screen, combined with Samsung’s SUHD, makes for the ultimate detail meaning that you can become completely immersed in the viewing experience. And to finish it all off, the SUHD TV has a soft, textured Shirring design on the back which ensures that the TV maintains its stylish edge too, from any angle.

Multi-link screen
Watch, browse and play at the same time with a Multi-Link screen on your Samsung TV. Essentially, you can turn your TV into two TVs which enables you to watch live TV while you use an app on the same screen, have another channel playing or watch content from another source. The size of each screen is also adjustable so you can get the most out of your choice.
