Sherpa Group had the distinguished honour of being the first company to showcase Samsung's new 98" Q900 (98Q9008K) series 8K QLED TV in Quebec. The massive display was shown at an exclusive event on Thursday, September 26 at Sherpa's Dorval, QC office.
Sherpa kicked off a presentation showcasing the brilliant display to more than 50 select dealers from the Montreal area. Five representatives from Samsung Canada were on hand to discuss the features and benefits of the 8K panel, explaining the many new design technologies used in the Q900 series, including Samsung's Quantum AI 8K processor, which delivers 8K detail by remastering 1080p and 4K content.
At the event, Sherpa says the display garnered universal praise; the consensus among attendees was that the 98" beauty is "truly unbelievable."
Fully catered with hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, wine, and cheese, the event continued on into the evening, with full 8K demonstrations, complemented by a high-spirited atmosphere and excitement around the future of video in general.
"We're honoured having the relationship we do with Samsung Canada and are extremely proud to host the exclusive Quebec release of Samsung's flagship 8K panel at our facility," said Philippe Rayes, Sherpa's President and CEO.
