LED Edge-Lighting: Samsung's LED Edge-Lighting technology
allows for a high dynamic contrast ratio and ultra-sharp blacks by allowing
multiple LEDs to turn on an off automatically based on the image. LED
Edge-Lighting also provides more natural color representation and deep reds and
greens, because Samsung uses white LEDs that produce 105% of the broadcast color
gamut. The television's white LEDs are arranged along the left and right edges
of the screen and a proprietary light guide is used to focus its luminance
inwards towards the middle of the screen for a more uniform brightness. Overall,
this LED Backlight system produces contrast with stronger blacks and whites, and
greater subtlety of every gradation in between.
Clear Motion Rate 120: Clear Motion Rate (CMR) is Samsung's
more comprehensive and accurate measure for how well the LED-LCD TV can display
fast-moving images. Previously, motion clarity was expressed simply by the
refresh rate, measured in Hz. CMR, however, takes into account all three factors
that contribute to motion clarity: panel refresh rate (60Hz), image processor
speed and backlight technology. CMR is measured by determining the thinnest line
a TV can display in a moving image. The thinner the line, the higher the CMR
rating, and the clearer the picture you'll enjoy on the screen.
Wide Color Enhancer Plus: Wide Color Enhancer Plus allows
you to see picture color the way the director originally intended. Witness the
entire RGB spectrum brought to life on your screen to bring you exceptionally
vibrant, yet natural-looking images faithful to the director's original intent.

screen in response to the brightness of the room. In bright light, the screen
