Direct-Lit LED Technology: Direct-Lit LED backlight
technology bridges the gap between lower-cost CCFL (fluorescent) LCD TVs and
newer edge-lit LED-LCD TVs. Samsung's Direct-Lit LED-LCD televisions feature
LEDs positioned all the way across the LCD panel's back plane (instead of along
the side). Unlike "Full-Array" backlight LED-LCD televisions that also feature
LEDs positioned along the LCD panel's back plane, the Direct-Lit LED technology
uses fewer LEDs and do not offer local dimming. Since there are fewer LEDs, the
LCD panel's back plane must be moved farther away from the screen to provide
adequate light coverage across the LCD panel, making the TV much deeper than an
edge-lit LED-LCD television. Direct-Lit LED backlight technology offers a better
picture and is more energy efficient than previous CCFL (fluorescent) LCD
televisions, though it requires a much larger cabinet design than newer edge-lit
Clear Motion Rate 240: 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, 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.
- Panel Refresh Rate (Hz): Samsung's screen refresh rate
(120Hz) significantly improves motion detail and resolution by sampling the
image more frequently, leading to smoother, more fluid movement.
- Image Processor (Auto Motion Plus): Samsung's
proprietary Auto Motion Plus image processing technology is faster and more
responsive than conventional image processors, as it interpolates
intermediate frames to smooth out the image.
- LED Backlight Technology: Samsung's Edge-Lighting
Backlight technology regulates output precisely in synchronization with the
screen refresh to lessen the time it is lit, reducing ghosting and motion
Auto Motion Plus 120Hz: Auto Motion Plus 120Hz removes blur
and judder from scenes with large amounts of rapid movement to provide a clearer
picture. Auto Motion Plus 120Hz reduces blur so that action movies, sports and
video games have enhanced clarity. Advanced panels and unique backlight
technology combine with proprietary algorithms to reduce the response time and
yield a more accurate image reproduction with faster onscreen motion. Auto
Motion Plus 120Hz can be set to Clear, Standard, Smooth, Custom, Demo, or Off.
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.
5,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio: The LED-LCD TV delivers a Dynamic
