Ultra Clear Panel: With Samsung's Ultra Clear Panel, you can
still get an amazing picture even with reflective light. Ultra Clear Panel
absorbs most ambient light and virtually eliminates reflections so there are
hardly any distractions. Ultra Clear Panel also helps make colors more vibrant
with deeper blacks and enhanced contrast for crisper images and excellent shadow
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.
Micro Dimming Ultimate w/ Precision Black Local Dimming: By maximizing the contrast between lights and
darks, Samsung's Micro Dimming technology displays a picture that is as
true-to-life as possible. Samsung's innovative technology scans zones across the
image and adjusts brightness to deliver deeper dark tones and brighter whites.
It also eliminates the "halo" effect and image distortion that can happen with
diffused lights. The Ultimate version of this technology optimizes the quality
to new heights by scanning 2x the number of zones in the image. The result is a
crystal-clear picture with realistic, vivid detail and accurate color
reproduction. Precision Black Local Dimming produces an even greater increase in
contrast and black levels by dimming LEDs behind dark areas of the picture thus
making blacks darker without affecting brighter elements of the picture.
Clear Motion Rate 960: 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
(240Hz) 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 (with Micro Dimming Plus):
Samsung's Micro Dimming Edge-Lighting Backlight technology regulates output
precisely for each LED light and in synchronization with the screen refresh
to lessen the time it is lit, reducing ghosting and motion blur.
Auto Motion Plus 240Hz: With Samsung's Auto Motion Plus
240Hz with Clear Motion Rate, you can enjoy smooth motion in every frame.
Advanced TV panels and unique backlight technology combine with proprietary
algorithms to significantly reduce image response time. The lower the response
time, the higher the Clear Motion Rate (CMR). Samsung's industry leading Clear
Motion Rates yields the most accurate image reproduction for the clearest moving
images. Auto Motion Plus 240Hz can be set to Clear, Standard, Smooth, Custom,
Demo, or Off. The custom mode lets you manually adjust the Blur & Judder
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.
30,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio: The LED-LCD TV delivers a
Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 30,000,000:1; which provides stunning colors and deep
black, so your picture's details don't get lost in the shadows.
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.
1080p Resolution: The LED-LCD television displays all inputs
at a resolution of 1080p (1920 x 1080). The television's HDMI and component
video inputs will accept 1080p (24/60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i video

in 2ch stereo from sources connected to the TV via HDMI, RCA, or USB.
- Analog Audio: The television features a 3.5mm (minijack)
audio output for connecting the television to an analog 2-channel receiver.
You will need a minijack-to-RCA adapter (119MCON2M,
sold separately) to make a stereo RCA connection between the television and
your AV receiver. The TV's analog audio output terminals will output 2ch
audio from any of the television's source inputs.
ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel in HDMI
1.4 enables a TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an
A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any
separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the
television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used
to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables
connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection,
inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard
through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The
audio from the TV's tuner, network connection can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch
PCM. HDMI, USB, and analog connected devices will be output as 2ch PCM only.
Note: Both the television and the receiver must support
ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that
is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI 2
input. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel
(ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is
SoundShare: The TV is compatible with the SoundShare feature
found on some Samsung Crystal Surround AirTrack active speaker systems (sound
bars). SoundShare makes a wireless connection between the TV and the speaker
system via Bluetooth. Once the two are paired, you can control the volume and
mute the sound by using the remote control from the TV or the speaker system. If
you change the AirTrack from TV mode to another mode or turned off, the TV audio
will resume playing from the TV's speakers. SoundShare can be found on the
HW-F750, and HW-F850.
Network Connection (wired/wireless): You can set up the

WiFi Direct: When using WiFi Direct, you can connect directly with
other devices without using a wireless router. You'll be able to wirelessly
transfer personal content (such as photos & videos) to the Samsung LED-LCD
TV without connecting to your home network. WiFi Direct completely bypasses your
WiFi access point/router, so it's easy to set up. Streaming of copy-protected
content and other certain formats are not supported.
AllShare/DLNA Certified: The Samsung ES9000 series LED-LCD TV's AllShare
function, along with its DLNA Certification allow you to watch videos (DIVX/MPEG/H.264/WMV),
photos (JPEG/PNG/BMP/MPO)), and listen to music (MP3/WMA/AAC/FLAC/OGG) saved on your Windows PC (or other
DLNA Certified media server) through the TV via its Ethernet (LAN) port or
built-in WiFi (wireless). This eliminates the need to copy your photo, video,
and music files to a separate USB storage device.
Note: Windows PCs with XP and Vista installed require
Samsung's PC Share Manager software, which can be downloaded for free at
www.samsung.com. Not compatible with older Windows OS versions and Mac.
