SAMSUNG BUILDS ON SUCCESS OF ITS INDUSTRY-LEADING FLAT PANEL HDTVS BY UNVEILING NEW DESIGN OF FULL-HD LCD TVS
LAS VEGAS – January 8, 2007 – Digital TV market leader Samsung Electronics, continues to elevate its HDTV industry dominance by providing a full-HD solution for home entertainment. With the addition of its new line of LCD HDTVs, Samsung offers consumers a variety of quality displays in a new innovative design.
Samsung’s latest premium LCD TVs (40-, 46-, and 52-inches) offer higher picture quality and new advanced features, including full 1080p high-definition (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) resolution, which is nearly twice as high as the standard high-definition specification (1,366 by 768 pixels). Samsung’s 1080p TVs take full advantage of both the latest HD television content and HD components, such as the Samsung Blu-ray disc player.
Samsung enhanced its picture clarity by combining its proprietary Digital Natural Image engineTM (DNIe) with a new SuperClear panel to deliver a 12,000:1 contrast ratio and truer black tones to provide the best possible picture. An optimized, wide color gamut increases image quality and color richness, while the 178-degree viewing angle offers a wide radius for viewers to watch.
Beyond the stunning picture quality, the new Samsung 1080p LCD TVs are a work of art themselves. Their elegant designs with high-gloss finish, chrome plating, hidden speakers and swivel stand will grace any space and look just as good off as they do on.
These TVs provide cutting-edge digital connectivity, including Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC), Wise LinkTM and 3 HDMI1.3 (1 side). The Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC) technology enables a single remote control unit to operate a Blue-ray disc player, home theater system and other HDMI-CEC compatible A/V products. WiseLinkTM supports USB 2.0, enabling unfettered access to MP3 and JPG data. The high-definition multimedia interface will simultaneously deliver full signal transmission to three different sources. Samsung has added even more convenience with its remote-controlled wall mount (vertical up to 25- degrees and horizontal up to 60-degrees.
Consumers can enjoy the benefits of full-HD from the content source when they combine these 1080p LCD TVs with Samsung’s second generation BD-P1200 Blu-ray disc player, which provides a complete full HD home entertainment solution. The Blu-ray disc player features HQV video up-conversion processing, HD video and audio, 1080p/1080i/720 up-conversion, Dolby Digital, BD/DVD/CD playback and HDMI1.3 interface, Ethernet port, and picture-in-picture viewing. It will be available in March 2007
