Paramount Pictures teams with Samsung for 4K content deal

Samsung Electronics and Paramount Pictures have announced a partnership aimed at growing the Ultra HD marketplace. Under the arrangement, Samsung will release an Ultra HD Video Pack that will come pre-loaded with UHD-quality content, including handpicked feature films from Paramount Pictures. Consumers can access the movie content at home to gain access to Paramount Picture’s blockbuster films and classics that are more detailed than ever before. Ultra HD, also called 4K, delivers four times the resolution of Full HD, making the viewing experience clearer and more vivid.

“We are delighted to work with Samsung to showcase the sensational capabilities of their UHD TVs,” said Amy Reinhard, executive vice president and general manager of Paramount Home Media Distribution. “This is a terrific opportunity for consumers to truly experience the superior picture quality of UHD with some of our most popular films.”

“Paramount Pictures is the gateway to many of the best films of our time,” said Kyungshik Lee, Senior Vice President of the Service Strategy Team of Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics. “We are excited to deliver these memorable films to our UHD TV customers, giving them the chance to rediscover their favorite scenes with stunning clarity.”

The Samsung UHD Video Pack will come bundled with the blockbuster films Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness, World War Z, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and the beloved classic Forrest Gump, winner of six Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Scheduled to start shipping in the spring, Samsung’s UHD Video Pack will connect to compatible Samsung UHD TVs for 4K viewing.
