Home-tech has come a long way since, well…last year.
Samsung, Sonos and Apple have some serious toys that’ll make your home fit for any occasion. Having a set-up worthy of Tony Stark is a must for those who enjoy home entertainment.
The TV industry is continuously exploring new concepts, and competition across the board couldn’t be tighter. Samsung however, may have just changed the game with their innovative approach to a tasteful TV that blends in with its surrounds.
Samsung’s ‘The Frame’, designed by acclaimed product designer Yves Behar, incorporates a new bezel, in the form of a frame. The TV can be encased by black veneer or wood, solidifying the TV’s role as an accoutrement to the interior of the house.
‘The Frame’ is built to operate as more than a TV. It can transform a hallway into a gallery of curated art, or provide a clean and refined look to a room that needs a TV that is stylish and minimalistic. Samsung has announced that the product will be available from July 2017, and will be available in a 55-inch or 65-inch display. While the sizes of the TV have been made public, prices are yet to surface for more information head over to Samsung.
The new king of soundbars has arrived, and it comes from Sonos. It’s sleek and a lot more streamlined than previous Sonos soundbars. As far as simplicity goes, you will only need an HDMI cable from your television and one for power. Leave the rest to WIFI.
Sonos have a great way of maximising sound, and not negotiating on style and aesthetic brilliance. It will be the piece of the puzzle missing from your home entertainment. Sonos will learn the dynamics of your room to maximise your viewing experience. All streaming services now facilitate content supporting Dolby Atmos. This means Netflix and Disney+ are among the players ready for an audio experience mimicking that of a cinema set-up.
