Samsung HDTV Rochester NY

If HDTVs can be mounted on a wall or over a fireplace like art in Rochester, why not use them as art? Samsung and Thomas Kinkade Co. have teamed up to produce a prototype that's just that.

If HDTVs can be mounted on a wall or over a fireplace like art, why not use them as art? Samsung and Thomas Kinkade Co. have teamed up to produce a prototype that's just that. By surrounding an LCD display with an art frame and uploading the LCD with digitally mastered paintings by Thomas Kinkade, the companies created the Digital Masterworks ART-TV, which shows artwork in high definition yet shifts to TV programming by touching one button.

The Digital Masterworks ART-TV prototype, described by Samsung as a hybrid LCD TV and mini-exhibit, was built to test the market viability of the concept. When mass produced, it will integrate artwork with HDTV, showing such minute details as brush strokes and canvas texture. Featuring a customizable touch screen that allows users to modify the overall image light or enhance specific colors within the Thomas Kinkade Co.'s guidelines, Sam-sung believes it is likely to change the future of room decor.

“Imagine having a piece of museum-quality fine art right above your mantle and then as you sink into the couch instantly switch to ‘American Idol,' the latest sports playoffs, or a Blu-ray action movie at the touch a button,” says Scott Birnbaum, vice president of Samsung LCD Business.

The system consists of a 1080p-resolution, 500-nit, 46-inch display with a 3,000:1 contrast ratio and a 40GB hard drive.
