“Collaborations such as this mark a major milestone in bringing 8K – the most premium display technology – to the forefront for viewers,” said Samsung VP Simon Sung.
“When considering how to immerse our global fans in the world of The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power, Samsung’s exceptional technology and screens felt like a natural fit,” said Andrew Bennett, Vice President of Global Device Partnerships at Prime Video.
“Samsung’s depth, detail, and incredible passion for the series has started us on an amazing journey together – one we can’t wait for audiences to experience.”
Samsung’s Neo QLED 8K series TVs deliver an optimal home entertainment experience, thanks to the Neural Quantum Processor 8K.
Additionally, viewers will be enveloped in the action thanks to Dolby Atmos and Object Tracking Sound – a Samsung technology that follows the action on the screen.
‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ brings to screens for the very first time the heroic legends of the fabled Second Age of Middle-earth’s history. This epic drama set thousands of years before the events of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, is set to premiere exclusively on Prime Video on Sep 2.
