Samsung unveils The Premiere

It’s an ultra-short throw 4K projector

A few months ago, Samsung brought The Frame to the Philippines. The picturesque television screen debuted an artistic approach to entertainment. Now, the company is expanding the Lifestyle line even further. During today’s Life Unstoppable virtual event, Samsung launched The Premiere, a short throw 4K projector.

Much like The Frame, The Premiere melds seamlessly into any living room. For one, Samsung calls it an “ultra-short throw” laser projector. It can sit almost directly below the wall and still project images accurately. The leading variant throws a gigantic 130-inch projection with a peak brightness of 2,800 ANSI lumens. The lesser variant, however, can still throw a 120-inch projection. As mentioned above, both variants can support 4K resolution.

Inside the software, The Premiere supports a new Filmmaker Mode, allowing users to display films in the same configuration as the director intended. The device can also mirror mobile devices.

Meanwhile, Samsung has also launched an outdoor screen called The Terrace. The outdoor variant screen also comes with The Terrace Soundbar which can adapt sound quality to different outdoor conditions like rain, dust, and even insects. It has anti-glare technology, reducing display interruptions in high sunshine conditions. The Terrace will come in 55-, 65-, and 75-inch variants.

In more traditional television screens, Samsung has one of the first mobile-friendly sets, The Sero. The new screen can integrate seamlessly with phones for playback.

Both The Premiere and The Terrace will launch in Europe first this year.

Cyberpunk 2077 soars to 1M daily players after Edgerunners

The RPG gets a major milestone

Published

Cyberpunk Edgerunners

Following the release of its much-anticipated Edgerunners update and Netflix anime, Cyberpunk 2077 has reached a major milestone.

CD Projekt Red’s single-player, open-world sci-fi RPG has reached one million daily players (new and returning) ever since the patch was made available earlier in the month.

The Netflix anime, Cyberpunk: Edgerunners also debuted last September 13, further elevating the game’s popularity to new heights, so much so that is has become a Steam top seller yet again.

This achievement makes up for the game’s disastrous release in late 2020, when technical issues, particularly bugs, hounded its PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions.

Enhanced for Next-Gen consoles

The Edgerunners update enhanced the game for Next-Gen consoles. It also gave players an opportunity to access in-game goodies inspired by the anime series such as new wardrobe and fresh weapons, as well as a host of new features and content to dig into.

Set in the futuristic Night City, Cyberpunk 2077 revolves around its protagonist V, a mercenary outlaw who needs to secure a one-of-a-kind implant — the Relic — which is the key to immortality.

In exploring the vast city controlled by corporations and highlighted by gang wars, players must customize their character’s cyberware, skillset and playstyle to overcome every obstacle they encounter.
