Samsung India has unveiled its new ONYX Cinema LED screen. Inspired by the gemstone of the same name, the Onyx screen claims to have the ability to deliver picture quality with its true black colour bringing the content with higher vibrancy and accuracy. It comes with comprehensive solutions Onyx View, Onyx 3D and Onyx Sound.
Combined by an infinite contrast and specialised low-tone greyscale settings, Onyx VIEW promises to deliver brighter and more detailed content. The screen delivers HDR (High Dynamic Range) to the cinema, showcasing on-screen contents at top brightness level, and implies to be 10 times greater than that offered by standard cinema projectors (146fL versus 14fL) with improved uniformity and promises to be free of optical distortion and interference. It claims to be the industry’s first DCI-certified cinema screen available in various sizes. The technology promises to deliver better visual quality, technical performance and reliability beyond that of traditional projector-based operations.
The screen assures to maintain its presentation capabilities in ambient lighting conditions regardless of the featured on-screen content and accommodate users who wish to utilise their theatres for corporate events, concert, sports event viewing and gaming competitions.
The 3D Onyx Cinema LED screen promises to craft 3D movie content more realistically, through enhanced brightness and consistent colour amplification. Glass-wearing viewers can now have the benefit of subtitle text, images and even minor visual details without the dark and blurry shadowing.
The screen also offers Onyx surround sound from JBL by Harman International and Samsung’s Audio Lab. This integration eliminates rearward bias by expanding the audio within Onyx theatres and ensures that all attendees can enjoy the same presentation throughout, regardless of the seat location.
Samsung has collaborated with cinema content developers and cinema technology solution services provider to ensure that the display can optimise upcoming films as the theatres upgrade their screen to the Onyx screen.
