As summer turns to fall, we are seeing more product releases that are bound to make the cooler days ahead a bit more comfortable, especially from inside the home.
QD OLED: the Latest Frontier
TV technology has grown leaps and bounds in recent years; it can be difficult to keep up with the latest and greatest advancements. Samsung is making waves at the forefront of outstanding picture quality with its line of Quantum Dot Organic Light-Emitting Diode (QD OLED) TVs. QD OLED technology combines the brightness capabilities of OLED with the range of colors made possible by QD. The gamut of color this type of technology is capable of rendering is unprecedented in previous OLED tvs.
At a recent trade show, Samsung unveiled its plans to release the world’s first 77-inch QD OLED TV. This would bring the unparalleled visual quality to a format that is larger than ever before. At this point, the model hasn’t been released for sale, so expect to see it made available no earlier than 2023.
Bowers and Wilkins Headphones
Last year we were delighted to report that the cornerstone of British audio history, Bowers and Wilkins, were releasing the pi5 and pi7 wireless earbuds. We’re equally excited about the Px7 S2 over-ear headphones. With the same premium noise-canceling technology that makes Bowers and Wilkins a must-have for travelers and a specially designed ear cup meant to deliver a truly immersive experience, these headphones are sure to enchant any audiophile. Bowers and Wilkins’ long-standing dedication to delivering the audio as intended by the artist means that these headphones transport you to the studio.
USAI continues to light up the residential lighting market; their latest addition, the TrueZero360 flush-mount lighting solution, provides a light source that is even, with exceptional coverage, and a seamless integration into any ceiling. Their 0.0” regress means that they appear as squares of illumination in the surface of the ceiling; delivering 2000 glare-free lumens, these are the most unobtrusively powerful lights yet from USAI.
These lights accent any room, whether the interior design calls for a downlight, wall wash, or combination. The TrueZero360 is available in a 3-inch square with a variety of trim options, allowing homeowners to choose to highlight their presence or let them blend into the background. USAI offers a range of hues, from classic white to warm glow to their infinite color options. Truly customizable, TrueZero360 ceiling lights enhance any space.
These advancements in technology are exciting to track; we can’t wait to see what’s around the next corner.
