Samsung Gulf Electronics has unveiled the Freestyle 2nd Gen, a portable projector offering a stunning viewing experience built with revolutionary edge blending technology.
Edge-blending is a sophisticated technology that typically requires dedicated hardware and software to control each pixel manually. But in line with the easy-to-use concept of The Freestyle, Samsung engineers crafted Smart Edge Blending to help users easily merge screens wirelessly without a dedicated device or help from an expert.
Smart Edge Blending allows users to connect two Freestyle projectors and create a single full-screen image of up to 160 inches and a 21:9 screen ratio, with no manual adjustment or dedicated device required. Users can also enjoy immersive stereo sound, with the choice of dedicated left and right stereo sound output for each device. Smart Edge Blending also supports vertical videos from social media platforms like Instagram Reels and YouTube Shorts. Connecting and synchronizing two Freestyle projectors is seamless through the SmartThings app on their smartphone.
Mr. Nikola Aksentijevic, Head of the Visual Display Division, at Samsung Gulf Electronics, said that, “The Freestyle has made Gulf customers fall in love with projectors again. With the Freestyle 2nd Gen, we’re introducing the innovations typically associated with large, fixed AV systems, including expansive screens, immersive sound, powerful gaming features, and more. We look forward to sharing this innovation with our Gulf customers as we roll out the new Freestyle.”
The Freestyle 2nd Gen also supports gaming through Samsung Gaming Hub, a cloud gaming platform that eliminates the need for consoles, wires, and fixed screens. Users can access various games anytime and anywhere without compromising quality or performance.
According to the statement, “The light source life has been extended from 20,000 to 30,000 hours, which means users can enjoy eight hours of use per day for ten years. The remote control is also powered by a SolarCell Remote that can be charged with sunlight or indoor lighting, reducing the environmental impact of disposable batteries.”
