AWARD-winning mobile application Free Bee, which is powered by technology services provider PLDT Global Corporation, is launching an online video series for overseas Filipinos to help them stay informed, entertained, and healthy amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
Entitled Rated Global Pinoy, this hour-long lifestyle online talk show will feature topics that are close to the hearts of Filipinos around the world. In its upcoming episode, radio personality Papa Jackson and actress Ina Raymundo will talk about their views on long-distance relationships, and how OFWs can deal with being away from their family.
“This online campaign is meant to make our kababayans feel that they are not alone. We are going beyond connectivity to creating a venue where we can help Filipinos worldwide find ways to support their emotional needs while they are in a long-distance set up,” said Albert V. Villa-Real, Chief Commercial Officer at PLDT Global.
“Through these video series, we hope to deliver meaningful content that hopefully will make our OFWs feel closer to home,” he added.
Just like this online series, Free Bee also aims to strengthen the connection of OFWs with their loved ones back home by enabling longer, ad-free calls in key migrant destinations such as the United States, Canada, India, South Korea, among others, at affordable rates.
These premium, reliable, and affordable call plans are tailored to suit the needs of Filipinos with families living or working abroad and help them maintain strong family ties.
Launched in 2017, Free Bee has also partnered with other companies and organizations all over the world to provide services such as Smart, TNT, and Sun load top ups, online bills payment, application for insurance and loan products, and lifestyle guides for Filipinos overseas.
SAMSUNG, on its 13th consecutive year of producing the world’s No.1 TV, has introduced its QLED 8K TV in the Philippines. The QLED 8K TV gives consumers a brand-new, never-before-seen experience of premium quality television screens. The product’s Philippine launch started with an exclusive event at The Fifth ballroom in Rockwell in April.
The QLED 8K TV features a new Quantum Processor 8K, which can produce images in greater detail and depth, in 7,680 x 4,320 resolution. Available in super large sizes of 75-, 82-, and 98-inch screens, with over 33 million pixels, the QLED 8K TV provides an experience that becomes fully immersive and pristine, as films and TV shows are meant to be seen.
“Over the past years, what we watch, when we watch, and how we watch has fundamentally changed,” said Lauro Guevara, head of product marketing for Samsung TV and Audio. “Today, more consumers are looking to enjoy their favorite content on larger and smarter screens, with minimal image noise, for a viewing experience that is almost true-to-life.”
The QLED 8K TV boasts of a remarkable AI upscaling technology, which automatically converts lower-resolution content into 8K quality. Enabled by the Quantum Processor 8K, AI Upscaling analyzes the quality and resolution of any image – whether it is in 4K, Full HD, HD, or even SD, or watched through a streaming service, HDMI, USB, or even mobile mirroring – and upscales the content to appear in 8K quality.
Aside from optimizing noise reduction, the AI Upscaling function restores the integrity of the smallest of details in a scene to provide greater texture, and sharpens edges of objects and texts for greater clarity. This feature, along with the highest levels of contrast with the Direct Full Array Technology, and dramatically-enhanced, deeper blacks and brighter whites, make the QLED 8K Samsung’s best TV, to date.
Bixby on TV, a highlight of the 2019 QLED lineup, is a clever feature that enables viewers to easily access films and shows thru voice command, which helps search for content based on previous viewing preferences.
The launch event also marked the entry of Samsung’s 2019 full TV lineup, featuring the new QLED 4K TVs that also have AI upscaling capabilities. A wider selection of 2019 Soundbars, which includes new models that Samsung has developed with audio masters, Harman Kardon, were also featured.
Samsung Philippines president James Jung, in his opening speech, remarked on the historical relevance of the brand’s ground-breaking TV innovations. “This year is the 50th anniversary of the moment that mankind took his first step on the moon and changed history forever. This year is also Samsung Electronics’ 50th anniversary of meaningful innovations. These milestones provide important context as we introduce a product that we believe will forever change the future of TVs,” he said of the QLED 8K TV.
