Samsung Showcases Smarter LED TV, Plasma And Blu-ray Products At CES 2011

At the International Consumer Electronics Show, Samsung Electronics, today unveiled new LED TV series, plasma TVs and its 2011 3D Blu-Ray line.

Smarter LED TV Products for 2011

Samsung's new LED TV series includes more than 40 new models with screen sizes from 19-inches to 65-inches. The new TVs offer enhanced picture quality in 2D, 3D, HD and streaming content, as well as richer connected entertainment options.

Samsung's 2011 line-up combines elegant styling with a wide range of features previously exclusive to premium sets, including 3D capabilities and smart TV features. Select models will offer Samsung's new Smart Hub, which includes:

- Search All, which makes it easier to search for desired content on your TV and other DLNA-certified connected media storage devices, networked PC and mobile devices, and Internet and video-on-demand services.
- Your Video, which delivers recommendations based on a user's viewing history.
- Web Browser, which offers full web browsing right from your TV. - Samsung Apps, the world?s first HDTV-based application store, which offers a range of paid and free apps.

Samsung will also expand the number of 3D TV models available in 2011 so more people can enjoy 3D home entertainment at affordable prices. Consumers will be able to choose from a wide range of TVs that sport new ultra-thin TV bezels. The new bezels are the result of design research, Samsung's proprietary new panel technology and signal processing technology.

As the pioneer in 3D home entertainment, Samsung also previewed a 75-inch LED TV.

As the No. 1 brand for TVs in the US and globally, Samsung led the industry in 2010 with the launch of the world's first 3D TV and today holds over 70 percent of the market share in the US. As 3D content becomes more prevalent, the company expects more consumers to opt for 3D features in their TVs. To this end, it aims to reduce the cost of acquiring a 3D entertainment system - 3D TV, Blu-ray player, 3D glasses and content - in 2011 by more than two-thirds and making 3D features available in a wider range of models.

Samsung expects 2011 to be a watershed year for connected TV. Almost all of Samsung's new 40-inch and above 2011 TVs will offer smart TV features.

The first thing you notice about the LED D8000 series is its barely visible 0.2" brushed metal bezel. The D8000 Series continues the minimalist style of the award-winning C8000 Series and uses an improved Quad Stand to ensure harmony between the TV and its environment.

With a 240Hz refresh rate, 2 millisecond motion picture response time (MPRT) and improved LED backlight scanning, this CES Innovation Award honoree offers true-to-life 2D, 3D and HD images. In addition to the Ultra Clear Panel, the TV is the first to offer Micro Dimming Plus technologies to provide more lifelike pictures with deep blacks and pure whites.

The D8000 Series comes with Samsung's new 3D glasses and Samsung's Touch Control that can also stream TV programs to its built-in 3" LCD screen, almost like a second TV, even while a Blu-ray disc is being played on the TV.

The D8000 has a built-in Wi-Fi connection and many convenient ways to manage and display content through Samsung's Smart Hub portal. The set can connect to other devices using DLNA or Samsung's patented One Foot Connection technology.

The Samsung LED D7000 Series represents a successful balance of high technology with minimalist design aesthetics. The thin 0.2" black bezel is framed by a jewel-like transparent bezel that uses Samsung's Touch of Color (ToC) dual-injection mold technology to reflect a hint of red along the crystal bezel?s edge. The Quad Stand is slimmer than the one introduced in 2010, yet its lower height manages to keep the TV stable and sturdy.

With the Auto 3D Format Setup, the TV automatically detects the encoding format (i.e. side-by-side and top-bottom) when playing 3D content and viewers can now sit back and let their smart TV configure the content.

The LED D7000 also incorporates improved backlight scanning technology and Auto Motion Plus, Samsung's proprietary frame interpolation algorithm, to create sharp 2D and 3D pictures and smooth frame transitions without blurring; 3D picture quality is also improved as a result of Samsung?s new 3D Peak Algorithm.

With Smart Hub, the LED D7000 Series becomes a media center.

For the consumer looking to embrace 3D entertainment without breaking the bank, the Samsung LED D6400 Series TV is the ideal 120Hz 3D LED TV, offering clear 3D pictures. Samsung's double-rate frame transition technology also reduces the picture frame transition time by 50 percent to enhance the viewing quality of 3D content.

The LED D6400 also offers Samsung?s narrow bezel design.

Samsung's 3D Peak Algorithm reduces average power consumption by about 15 percent while increasing peak brightness by 20 percent. Its Motion Adaptive Dimming algorithm also reduces power consumption up to 20 percent by controlling LED brightness, according to motion vectors in the picture.

Samsung 2011 Plasma TV LineUp

Samsung also extended its plasma TV line-up of 16 new models across six product series.

Samsung?s 2011 ultra-slim plasma TVs offer Samsung's Plasma+1 design, which features a new narrow bezel design that adds 1" of viewable screen size over last year's products for a greater viewing area without increasing the outside dimensions of the set.

The TVs also offer richer connected entertainment options through a comprehensive offering of apps and connected devices. Select models will offer Samsung's new Smart Hub, which includes:

- Search All, which makes it easier to search for desired content on your TV and other DLNA-certified connected media storage devices, networked PC and mobile devices, and Internet and video-on-demand services.
- Your Video, which delivers recommendations based on a user?s viewing history.
- Web Browser, which offers full web browsing right from your TV.
- Samsung Apps

Samsung's Plasma D8000 Series is a Full HD plasma TV that is designed to deliver the best viewing experience in 2D and 3D. The D8000 Series features a dark metallic bezel combined with Samsung's ToC border. More importantly, the thinner bezel makes possible the added inch in screen size without an increase in the overall size of the TV.

The Plasma D8000 Series features Samsung?s Real Black Filter technology, which reduces the onscreen glare to produce darker blacks and sharper images. The TV also includes Samsung's proprietary Crystal Full HD engine with Cinema Smooth technology that delivers smoother motion effects when watching their favorite Blu-ray discs. These features combine to give the D8000 Series a dynamic contrast ratio of 3,000,000:1.

The Plasma D8000 Series is also compatible with Samsung's 3D active glasses and multi-display Touch Control. This remote can be a second portable TV, offers a QWERTY keyboard for easy text input during web browsing and acts as a universal remote control for your onscreen content. With built-in Wi-Fi, viewers have access to Smart Hub to view and search for content on Samsung Apps or on DLNA-certified devices.

Samsung's ultra-slim Plasma D6500 Series is a 1080p 3D TV offers a dichotomy in design texture, between cold, black metal and warm, smooth glass. The cabinet consists of a brushed metallic black frame and the translucent mold that encases the frame and uses Samsung's ToC technology. The same pattern is reflected in the silver stand, where a reinforced glass neck is attached to a black matte metal base. With the narrow bezel, Samsung TVs can fit into viewing spaces previously reserved for smaller screen sizes, so for example, a 51-inch TV can fit into a spot previously occupied by a 50-inch screen.

With Samsung's built-in 3D processing technology, viewers can up-convert 2D content and render it in high-definition 3D. Its powerful system-on-chip not only renders standard 2D content into 3D entertainment in real-time, but also offers video-enhancing tools that produce sharp and smooth pictures. The Plasma D6500 Series connects to Samsung's 3D active glasses, thereby eliminating problems such as interference and strict line-of-sight requirements, so that viewers can enjoy a more stable image and greater flexibility to watch the television from practically any viewing angle.

With built-in Wi-Fi, viewers can also stream content to the Plasma D6500 Series from other DLNA-certified devices using Samsung AllShare, as well as access to a broad range of apps via Samsung Apps.

New 3D Blu-Ray Line

Samsung 3D Blu-ray line offers Samsung Smart Hub via integrated 802.11n wireless and Smart Blu-ray features. Three of the new models have Samsung?s system-on-chip (SoC) for 3D up-conversion of movies, pictures and streaming video.

Samsung 2011 offerings include the world's slimmest 3D Blu-Ray disc player (model BD-D7500), the compact 3D Blu-ray disc player design (model BD-D7000), a 3D Blu-ray with Dual HDMI and Mobile Phone Control Options (model BD-D6700) and a Blu-ray with built-in Wi-Fi and 3D (model BD-D6500).

All the new models are designed as symmetric products, with all the major functions placed in the middle. The lack of moving parts in the slot-in method for loading disc media also makes the unit quieter and more efficient than those with loading trays. The models are thin and designed to complement Samsung TVs. Samsung?s premium Blu-ray line-up also includes advanced Smart Blu-ray features - such as AllShare and Smart Hub, which includes Your Video, Search All and Samsung Apps ? that make it even easier for people to access and share content that speak to their passions.

The entire line will also offer Samsung's new patented One Foot Connection feature when used in conjunction with the Samsung wireless router. During the initial set-up of the router, users simply need to put the Blu-ray and other compatible devices within one foot of the router to establish a connection; the devices can subsequently be moved to any part of the home while still maintaining this connection

As the world's slimmest Blu-ray disc player, the wall-mountable Samsung BD-D7500 packs industry-leading features into its 0.9-inch height. It has 2D-to-3D conversion capabilities and it is loaded with video picture quality enhancement algorithms and various high definition codecs. The processor's exclusive conversion engine can also up-convert content, including streaming content, to HD so users get the best images and performance from their HDTVs. All these content sources, plus the unit?s built-in Wi-Fi and Smart Blu-ray features, make for virtually limitless playback options.

Additionally, the BD-D7500 connects easily to other devices without wire clutter. The DLNA-certified player features game-changing connection methods, including Samsung's patented One Foot Connection, which allows devices to also be accessed and controlled via the BD-D7500. The new Blu-ray player also comes with one HDMI input connection.

Start up time on the BD-D7500 has been slashed to three seconds with Samsung?s new Ultra Fast Play.

Samsung's minimalist design for the BD-D7000 includes a hidden slot for disc loading that pops up from the center of the unit. It also has a silver metal casing that wraps around the compact, square BD-D7000.

This 3D Blu-ray player has many of the features of the BD-D7500, including 2D-to-3D conversion, full HD up-conversion, Ultra Fast Play, One Foot Connection, DLNA certification, integrated Wi-Fi, Smart Blu-ray features and a single HDMI output.

A 3D Blu-ray player with full HD upscaling and 3D conversion, the BD-D6700 offers wireless connections to a host of content through Smart Blu-ray features. Packed with two HDMI ports, the player delivers both advanced 3D (HDMI 1.4) and 7.1 channel surround sound audio features through legacy AV receivers (HDMI 1.3).

The BD-D6700 also has 3D conversion, full HD up-conversion, Ultra Fast Play, One Foot Connection, DLNA certification and integrated Wi-Fi. Additionally, iOS and Android mobile users can download a special free app so they can use their phones as a remote control for the BD-D6700.

The BD-D6500 is a solid performer with a premium design. It offers a full HD 3D experience and access to streaming services through Smart Blu-ray features. The BD-D6500 also upconverts content to Full HD and has Ultra Fast Play, One Foot Connection, DLNA certification and integrated Wi-Fi.
