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 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.
LED Motion Plus: This
function removes drag from fast scenes with a lot of movement to provide a clear
Motion Lighting: The TV automatically adjusts the brightness
of the screen in response to the brightness of the room. In bright light, the
