RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics America, Inc is awarded an honorable mention by the Hollywood Professional Association in their annual Engineering Excellence Award for the new Samsung Onyx cinema screen. The Engineering Excellence Award spotlights companies providing services to the professional media content industry for their outstanding technical and creative ingenuity in media, content production, finishing, distribution and archive.
Announced just before CinemaCon 2018, the Samsung Onyx brings LED technology to the cinema experience as the industry’s first DCI-certified cinema display. By using a large LED screen in the theater in place of the traditional projector, the audience experiences the brightest whites and deepest blacks, providing audiences with the opportunity to view films the way the creators intend. In addition, the colors remain vibrant even when there is ambient light throughout the space.
“Samsung is extremely grateful to be a recipient of this honor from the HPA,” said Stephen Choi, Vice President for Samsung Electronics America. “We launched Onyx in the United States earlier this year and received positive feedback from partners and media alike. We’re looking forward to continuing to work with the industry to enhance the cinematic experience for the movie-goers. Our mission is to continuously improve and evolve technology that will yield the best cinema experience possible.”
Dedicated to enhancing and improving the cinema experience, Samsung is also working with cinema content developers to ensure that the display can optimize upcoming films. Notably, Samsung will collaborate with leading cinema technology services provider Ymagis Group and its Eclair content development business unit to deliver EclairColor® HDR-compliant pictures that shine on the Onyx screen.
