For its screens in general, and with the “The Frame” range in particular, Samsung has imposed an elegant and refined vision on its televisions. An aesthetic philosophy taken to its climax with the One Connect box, which eliminates the usual jumble of cables that accompanies modern televisions.
Sound bars, internet boxes, game consoles and other Blu-Rays players are all devices that revolve around televisions and fill the space dedicated to them. If most of these objects have been designed with care, with a certain aesthetic research, there is still one unsightly element which often spoils the installation: the cables.
Indispensable to the proper functioning of any audiovisual system, cables remain cumbersome, impractical, and inelegant if there is one. You just have to take a look behind any TV cabinet to realize that they are a real problem, especially at a time when TV manufacturers are offering screens with increasingly sober and refined designs.
Samsung has seized on this problem head on, putting its engineers on the spot to find an answer to the problems related to cables. The result ? Samsung One Connect, a remote box that accommodates all of the television’s connectors and keeps the aerial profile of its televisions. A brief overview of this case which pushes the cable management in its last entrenchments.
Samsung One Connect: a box to hide them all
Designed for The Frame models and high-end Samsung televisions, One Connect is presented as a small box that acts as a relay between the audiovisual ecosystem and the television, so as to highlight the screen and nothing but the ‘screen. In order to create this product, Samsung had the good idea to take all the ports that are usually found behind a television set and to deport them to an external box, leaving between the latter and the panel only a single optical cable, thin and transparent, blending easily into the decor.
The real good idea lies in this optical cable which, in addition to its discretion, is able to transmit at very high speed all the signals that a television needs to function correctly, including power supply. It is therefore natural that we find an antenna input, YUV ports, scart and no less than 4 HDMI ports to connect TV boxes, Blu-Ray players and other consoles.
On the sound side, the One Connect offers the traditional Jack output, but also an optical digital audio output to accommodate a sound bar. USB ports, Ethernet and other IR Outs complete the range of connections offered to allow this box to manage an audiovisual installation as complete as it is supplied.
With this remote box intended to accommodate all unsightly cables to better camouflage them, Samsung offers an ideal solution to highlight the airy and light design of its televisions, The Frame in mind. Here are some Samsung televisions that are delivered automatically with this box.
