Get in the zone for precise contrast from all corners with the Samsung QE55Q80RAT 55 inch QLED 4K HDR Smart Television.

The Samsung Q80 range for 2019 improves on the local dimming contained in its counterparts from last year, the Q8 series.

More than double the zones are available with a total of 96, making the Direct Full Array back-lighting system more effective.

The advanced number of quantum LED clusters that can be controlled, on the LCD back-panel, means darker blacks and brighter whites, in any scene.

A more powerful operating chip, the Quantum Processor 4K, manages the Micro Dimming Ultimate engine which aligns light and the video signal, frame by frame.

Improved wide angle viewing technology has added layers on the panel to reduce light leakage and spread uniformity, with colour and contrast standing firm from the most awkward of positions.

A filter function called Ultra Black protects that clarity from the elements, with anti-glare properties should direct sunlight or household bulbs be beaming onto the screen.

Up to 1,500 nits of brightness can be reached at the height of luminance, with the intensity between dark and bright colours balanced by high dynamic range.

Quantum HDR 1500 can realistically reproduce the detail of night shots under dazzling lights and the emergence of a dark figure in a burning building, to name but two.

Over a billion colours, with over a thousand shades of each primary category, ensure that no picture cannot be painted as the creator intended.

The 100 per cent colour volume meets the same spectrum as the DCI-P3 digital movie spectrum, so films are effortlessly converted into fantastic home cinema.

Fast-moving sequences are remastered in real time by the Quantum Processor, through its artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities.

This means sports, as it happens, and other live broadcasts flow seamlessly with adaptive audio, through a grid of surround sound.

It feels equally life-like as a Game Enhancer, where picture and sound react quickly as you play on your favourite titles, with low input lag rates.

The processor is also an effective upscaler for lower definition content, be that on consoles, Blu-ray players or through the smart hub.

It's upgraded, in each instance, to pixel perfect resolution although native footage is becoming more commonplace in this resolution.

Sony and Microsoft are releasing more games in 4K, as are film distributors with Netflix, YouTube, Prime Video and BT Sport streaming material as such.

A Quantum Dot Display uses small conducting nanocrystals just nanometres in width. When these nanocrystals are exposed to light they emit different colours dependant on their size. A result of using nanocrystals compared to a traditional LED display is they produce far more vibrant and brighter colours giving the display a much richer picture.
