Samsung Unveils Slim 2010 Plasmas

New TVs claim enhanced picture quality and advanced connectivity in new slim designs

Samsung has reveiled its new portfolio of ultra-slim Plasma HDTVs with the 8000, 7000 and 6500 Series.

Each provides advanced connectivity with the updated Internet@TV feature and compliance to revised EnergyStar 4.0 standards – all in a slim form factor. Additionally, the 8000 and 7000 Series includes Samsung’s proprietary built-in 3D processor that adds a new dimension to TV viewing at home.

Featuring a slim brushed titanium bezel with hints of the Touch of Color design, these units offer built-in 3D technology makes images leap off the screen while innovations like Real Black Filter and Motion Judder Canceller (MJC) deliver great picture quality. The Real Black Filter reduces the onscreen glare caused by ambient light, so blacks and shadow details are as crisp and defined as possible, while MJC reduces motion judder inherently found in fast-paced action scenes in film-based movies.

In order to ensure that consumers get the entertainment experience that best fits their tastes, the Samsung Plasma 8000 Series comes with a calibration mode that allows them to adjust key picture quality aspects for optimized viewing. The TVs are also equipped with Samsung’s CinemaSmooth technology for playback of 24fps Blu-ray content mirroring the quality of the latest movie theatres.

The upgraded Internet@TV feature now includes Samsung Apps, providing consumers with an expanded selection of content and applications.

The Samsung 7000 Series comes with built-in 3D processor developed to comply with 3D formats including the recently ratified “Blu-ray 3D” standard. The processing can even be applied to broadcast TV, gaming content and legacy DVDs to automatically convert 2D viewing into 3D in real time.

The 58-inch class model received a 2010 CES “Innovations Honoree” Award.
The Plasma HDTV 6500 Series is Samsung’s entry-level ultra-slim TV. While the TV’s exterior features the company’s signature ToC design, the TV comes with Samsung’s Wide Color Enhancer and Clear Image Panel to achieve the highest picture quality available on a plasma TV. The 6500 Series also provides expansive access to entertainment options with the updated Internet@TV feature.

Samsung’s 8000, 7000 and 6500 Series Plasma HDTVs feature a high-efficiency panel that lowers the TVs power consumption to meet Energy Sta 4.0 guidelines.
