Clear Image Panel: Samsung's Clear Image Panel technology
delivers clear images from every angle without the dual images and blurring

eliminates the off-angle reflections that cause picture blurring of images and
details so images look great at virtually any angle.
E-Panel Technology: Samsung's E-panel technology combines
superior picture quality with enhanced color, saturation, and contrast; as well
as energy efficiency. The E-Panel system features two separate unique

any time of day and 600Hz Subfield Motion with a .001ms response time help to
deliver a clear picture for sports, action, and other fast-moving scenes
- FilterBright Anti-Glare Filter: The anti-glare filter
reduces reflections noticeably while maintaining ultra-high picture
contrast. Daytime sports events look crisp and bright, while movies at night
feature rich blacks and realistic shadow detail. Minimized image glare and
maximized contrast make this HDTV perfect for the ultimate viewing
experience day or night.

Subfield Motion technology with a fast 0.001ms response time that minimizes

dynamic contrast ratio of 7,000,000:1, giving you brilliant brightness and
contrast for superior picture and detail from both PC and TV images.

virtually eliminates blurring, even with fast-moving images. Whether you're
