Samsung Electronics announced today the expansion of its award-winning lifestyle Home Entertainment portfolio with the addition of The Terrace, its first outdoor 4K QLED TV and accompanying soundbar. The Terrace is a Samsung Smart TV that is specifically designed to bring the full indoor entertainment experience outside. A consumer model of The Terrace is launching in the U.S. and Canada today, followed by rollouts to Germany, Australia, New Zealand and other regions later this year. And for businesses, a professional model will be launching this summer.
Available in 55-, 65- and 75-inch models, The Terrace fits perfectly with any outdoor living space and delivers Samsung’s industry-leading QLED 4K display technology and Smart TV features. Designed with weather in mind – with an IP55 rating, The Terrace’s display boasts weather-resistant durability against water and dust, and comes fitted for easy installation outdoors across a variety of settings.
“Today, new lifestyle habits and trends are evolving faster than ever before. Consumers are using screens to work from home, exercise using online platform, stay in touch with loved ones, and engage with many other activities. Screen should also be evolving in line with these lifestyle changes,” said Jonghee Han, President of Visual Display Business at Samsung Electronics. “With the introduction of The Terrace, we are thrilled to transcend the connected living room experience to the outdoors by delivering on engineering feats and content experiences that only Samsung can achieve.”
The Terrace offers a crystal-clear display to increase visibility in all sorts of outdoor conditions. It provides a brightness level of 2,000 nits, ensuring that users will be able to enjoy content in vivid picture quality, even in broad daylight. Its QLED 4K display is perfect for sports fans: with a high motion rate1, it provides clear, lifelike picture quality, ideal for motion-intensive content. Also, the display is coated with anti-reflection and adaptive picture technology which optimizes content by analyzing its surroundings to minimize unwanted glare.
Moreover, The Terrace also has acquired high standards in water and dust resistance (IP55) so it performs well in various environments. The product boasts durability, while offering a slim and sleek design at a mere 59.8mm.
The Terrace offers various content and browsing experiences that deliver seamless entertainment even outdoors. The Terrace comes equipped with Tizen, Samsung’s Smart TV platform, which powers features such as Samsung TV Plus, a free linear TV video service with over 120 channels, Samsung Health, a comprehensive fitness and wellness platform as well as the leading subscription streaming services.
In addition to supporting mobile viewing capabilities like Multi View and Tap View, The Terrace also supports multiple voice services including Bixby, Amazon Alexa and the soon-to-launch Google Assistant, helping it fit naturally into the smart home ecosystem.
Finally, The Terrace and The Terrace Soundbar offer dynamic sound that redefines the dimensions of home theater. Right out of the box, The Terrace delivers high-quality sound and a deep and clear bass sound from its built-in woofers. For those who want to customize their TV’s sound output, The Terrace has Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, allowing it to be paired with The Terrace Soundbar or other devices. To offer the clear, rich sound for immersive audio experience, The Terrace Soundbar features distortion canceling technology regardless of the surrounding environment.
Featuring IP55 level durability, The Terrace Soundbar can be mounted to a wall, or directly to The Terrace TV. It packs powerful and crisp audio for a truly immersive outdoor home theater experience.
