Samsung QD-OLED panel obtained the industry’s first “Pantone Validated” recognition
Samsung has announced that its 77-inch, 65-inch, and 55-inch QD-OLED television panels have been honored with the prestigious “Pantone Validated” and “Pantone SkinTone Validated” certifications. This marks a momentous first in the display panel industry, earning the Pantone seal of approval, further attesting to the QD-OLED panel’s extraordinary capacity for color reproduction and its delivery of a genuine visual color experience.
Renowned for its Pantone Matching System (PMS), Pantone has become a universally accepted standard of color. Each hue is assigned a unique alphanumeric code to ensure the precise replication of the same color anywhere in the world and across various media. This system is indispensable in industries that require accurate color differentiation, from product design to video production. Consumer products awarded this certification must accurately generate over 2000 specific colors in accordance with the Pantone Matching System and meet Pantone’s stringent standards.
To be honored with the “Pantone SkinTone Validated” certification, an accurate representation of 110 skin tones from the Pantone SkinTone Guide is required. This guide, industry-first, is predicated on thousands of scientific measurements, accurately reflecting the genuine skin tones of varying races, regions, and age groups.
Having garnered the “Pantone Validated” and “Pantone SkinTone Validated” certifications, Samsung anticipates further establishing its dominance in the high-end television market through its QD-OLED panels. Earlier, the QD-OLED panel also received the “Display of the Year” award from the Society for Information Display (SID), further consolidating its credentials.
