Picture enhancements on 2022 Samsung Quantum mini-LEDs
On top of that, there are several iterative improvements such as Shape Adaptive Light. A press release on the Samsung Newsroom website describes it as follows:
The new Shape Adaptive Light technology leverages the Neo Quantum Processor to analyze lines, shapes and surfaces to control the shape of light from the Quantum Mini LEDs, enhancing the brightness and accuracy of all shapes on the screen. The result is outstanding image quality that puts full HDR content on display.
Another nice-to-have: Real Depth Enhancer, “a multi-intelligence picture quality algorithm” that determines and processes an object on the screen against its background “to create a sense of depth,” in Samsung’s own words.
