About the Samsung UN46C5000

Why LED? Great picture contrast and color accuracy, plus lower energy use
If there's a hole in your life that a 46" TV can fill, Samsung's UN46C5000 has a lot to offer. The panel's ultra-slim profile is a side benefit of the LED backlight, which also boosts picture contrast, expanding the range of gray tones from deep black to brilliant white. And it expands the palette of available colors — you'll primarily notice deeper reds and greens. LEDs are more energy-efficient than conventional fluorescent backlights, too. This model meets the EPA's tough new ENERGY STAR® 4.0 spec for reduced power use.

A variety of viewing options
The UN46C5000 gives you four HDMI inputs and a component video input for connecting your high-definition gear, like a Blu-ray player. If you have a home network and a recent DLNA-compatible PC, you can stream music and video to this TV via a wired connection. You'll also find two USB ports: one is provided so you can connect Samsung's wireless adapter for accessing digital music and video over your wireless network, and the other is there for plugging in a thumb drive to view photos.

Video Features

LED Edge-Lighting: Samsung's LED Edge-Ligting technology allows for an high dynamic contrast ratio of 3,000,000:1, and ultra-sharp blacks by allowing multiple LEDs to turn on an off automatically based on the image. The LED backlight 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.

Ultra Clear Panel: With Samsung's Ultra Clear Panel colors are more vibrant, brighter, and clearer. This ultra clear panel technology also enhances contrast and reduces reflection so you can enjoy an overall outstanding viewing experience.

Wide Color Enhancer Plus: The Samsung LED TV features Wide Color Enhancer Plus to provide more natural, realistic colors. The challenge of any TV screen is to recreate reality through color and light. Samsung met this challenge with its Wide Color Enhancer Pro feature. After analyzing each pixel, it stretches them to their 3-dimensional limit; resulting in full and lifelike colors.

Mega Dynamic Contrast Ratio: This LED TV has a 3,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, giving you brilliant brightness and contrast for superior picture and detail from both PC and TV images.

LED Motion Plus: LED Motion Plus removes drag from fast scenes with a lot of movement to provide a clear picture.

HDTV Tuner: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.

Native Resolution: The LED television displays all inputs at a resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080). The television's HDMI and component video inputs will accept 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video signals.

Video Inputs: The Samsung LED TV features HDMI, Component, and Composite video inputs.

If a DVI-equipped device is used, a separate audio cable will also be needed from the device to the "PC/DVI Audio In" 3.5mm stereo audio jack. No audio cables are needed for an HDMI-equipped device. The HDMI input can also be used to connect a PC to this TV. The HDMI jack will accept 1080p (60/24Hz),1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i signals.
  • Component Video: The rear-panel Component Video input will accept 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. The Component Video 1 input can also be used as a composite video input (480i only).
