Samsung has installed the first of its Cinema Directview LED Display in a commercial venue at Lotte Cinema World Tower in Korea. Lotte Cinema/Entertainment is a Korean entertainment company that provides theater screening, movie investment and movie distribution services throughout the globe.

The First LED Screen Theater Amplifies the Immersive Experience Through HDR LED Display and JBL by HARMAN’s Audio Solution. Designed as a High Dynamic Range (HDR) LED theater display, the Cinema LED Screen creates a more captivating and vibrant viewing experience through next-generation picture quality and true-to-life audio thanks to collaboration between HARMAN Professional Solutions and Samsung Audio Lab.

“Through sharper and more realistic colors, complementary audio and an elevated presentation, our Cinema LED Screen makes viewers feel as if they are part of the picture,” said HS Kim, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “We are excited to partner with Lotte Cinema to bring this technology to theater-goers, and look forward to continuing to shape the cinema of the future.”
Stretching nearly 10.3m (33.8ft) wide in size, the Cinema LED Screen accommodates a variety of theater configurations while ensuring superior levels of technical performance, reliability and quality. The display brings the visual power of HDR picture quality to the big screen, and enlivens content with both ultra-sharp 4K resolution (4,096 x 2,160) and peak brightness levels (146fL) nearly 10 times greater than that offered by standard projector technologies. Additionally, the Cinema LED Screen’s futuristic, distortion-free presentation leverages ultra-contrast and low-tone grayscale settings to showcase the brightest colors, deepest blacks and most pristine whites at a nearly infinite contrast ratio.

At 10.3 meters wide and 4K resolution the Samsung Directview LED Display is using the largest pitch from the regular Samsung digital signage and public display indoor LED display's line-up. A 2.5mm pitch, with 1.2mm being the current high-end resolution, and 0.7 mm pitch being state-of-the-art, this a relatively low resolution for Directview LED displays. This is clearly done to keep cost down to acceptable levels for commercial cinema's, as cost per square meter double at every 0.3mm reduction in pixel pitch. It also fits the maximum resolution of commercial releases to cinemas.

The 146 fL or 500 nits (Cd/M2) is not very high for directview LED displays nor for HDR either, but it is high for cinema's, with Dolby Cinema designed for 106 nits or 31 fL peak brightness, in 2D, 14 fL in 3D. The limited brightness range should help with control of color and contrast across the range, keeping those balanced and linear, retaining color and contrast when brightness is less than peak brightness.

To go with the stunning video technology within the ‘SUPER S’ theater of Lotte Cinema, Samsung has paired its Cinema LED Screen with state-of-the-art audio technologies from JBL by HARMAN. This integration includes powerful speakers bordering the screen, proprietary audio processing technology, and JBL’s Sculpted Surround system, producing an unparalleled sight and sound experience the way the content creators intended.

As demands within the cinema space evolve, Samsung’s Cinema LED Screen offers the versatility to expand services to meet a wider range of audience needs. The display maintains its advanced presentation capabilities in a range of dark and ambient lighting conditions. This flexibility makes the Cinema LED Screen ideal for venues wishing to use their theater space for corporate events, concerts, sports event viewing and gaming competitions.
“‘SUPER S’ theater is a new paradigm of movie screening,” said Wonchun Cha, Lotte Cinema CEO. “We look forward to working with Samsung to introduce new, high-quality technology to the movie industry in the future, and we are excited to drive customer satisfaction through an improved viewing environment that brings a variety of content to life.”

Prior to its commercial debut, Samsung ran the Cinema LED Screen through a series of the industry’s most rigorous tests to validate its performance and presentation. In May 2017, the Cinema LED Screen became the first product to achieve full compliance with the highly-esteemed Digital Cinema Initiatives (DCI) theater technology standards prior to its commercial release. This certification acknowledges the display’s ability to showcase the complete color spectrum with unaltered accuracy.

Samsung registers 'Samsung Premier' trademark for Directview LED Display Cinema
« Reply #1 on: Sun October 08, 2017, 05:35:58 AM »
Samsung registered the Samsung Premier brand as a trademark with US and EU patent offices.

Multi-lingual consumer electronics news site Letsgodigital "discovered how this huge and bright screen is likely to be called. On the 27th of September the Korean Manufacturer filed a trademark for the name Samsung Premier with the USPTO and the EUIPO".

The US filing has the registration number 87628359, and the documents may be searched here. The direct link is to be found here, though currently the system is saying it is down.

Samsung re-engineered its 2.5mm pitch indoor LED display, used for digital signage and commercial display applications into an DCi certified video optimized platform, offering a wider than standard LED (Rec. 709 or less) color space, DCi requiring its standard P3 colorspace. And ofering HDR control, with a peak brightness of 500 nits(cd/M2), or 146 fL. Allowing use in dark cinema's as well as ambient light applications like dining rooms, according to the promotional video below. Audio is provided by its Harmon subsidiary.

Our friends at CelluloidJunkie report that there will be a second installation with Lotte Cinema in Busan to be revealed at the Busan film festival that starts next week, running October 12-21. Followed by the long suggested install in Burbank (i.e. 'Hollywood'). An installation in London and one in Scandinavia are said to follow.

Reportedly cinema outfitters are getting requests from operators to expand Xenon lamp based digital projectors for another year and a half to two years to skip the step of laser(-phoshor) illuminated projector. Sony is working at both RGB LASER illuminated projector and a Cinema version of CLEDUS microled display, two premium and competing technologies, so which one will win out within Sony aswell as the Cinema market.

The filing contain three 'identifications', The first identifies sound processing extending to home and TV usage.

Cinema LED Screen and platform; Electronic display panels; Monitors for commercial purpose; Digital signages; Digital signage display panels; Digital signage monitors; LED screens, monitors, signages and TVs for home; Sound system for cinema LED screens, monitors and signages; Sound system for Home LED screens, monitors, signages and TVs; Software for image processing, including post production, and mastering for cinema LED screens, monitors and signages; Software for image processing and display for home LED screens, monitors, signages and TVs; Software for presentation of HDR (High Dynamic Range) contents using high luminance; Software for digital and analog sound processing and mastering for cinema LED screens, monitors and signages; Software for digital and analog sound processing for home LED screens, monitors, signages and TVs

The second the installation outside of cinema's, including homes:

Installation of LED Screens, monitors, signages and TVs at theater, performance sites, venues, homes and other sites; Operation, repair and maintenance of LED screens, monitors, signages, TVs installed at theaters, performance venues, homes and other sites

And the third the showing of movies there:

Showing of movies and alternative multimedia contents using LED screens, monitors, signages and TVs at theater, performance venues, home and other sites

So where Sony is holding off on non-commercial installations right now, as reported by theater designer and DCI-Forum contributor Cineramax, Samsung has identified the segment as a target.
