New for 2011, the Samsung Plasma D8000 Series is a Full HD plasma TV that is designed to deliver our best viewing experience in 2D and 3D. The D8000 Series features a dark metallic bezel combined with Samsung's ToC border for an understated cool elegance associated with luxury items. More importantly, the thinner bezel makes possible the added inch in screen size without an increase in the overall size of the TV.
The Plasma D8000 Series features Samsung's Real Black Filter technology, which reduces the onscreen glare to produce darker blacks and sharper images. The plasma panel has also been redesigned to deliver outstanding black luminance. The TV also includes Samsung's proprietary Crystal Full HD engine with Cinema Smooth technology that delivers smoother motion effects when watching their favorite Blu-ray discs. These features combine to give the D8000 Series a dynamic contrast ratio of 3,000,000:1, and pristine depth and dimension to onscreen images.
The Plasma D8000 Series is also compatible with Samsung's 3D active glasses and multi-display Touch Control. This remote can be a second portable TV, offers a QWERTY keyboard for easy text input during web browsing and acts as a universal remote control for your onscreen content. With built-in Wi-Fi, viewers have access to Smart Hub to view and search for content on Samsung Apps or on DLNA-certified devices.
Samsung's new Smart Hub, which includes:
- Search All, which makes it easier to search for desired content on your TV and other DLNA-certified connected media storage devices, networked PC and mobile devices, and Internet and video-on-demand services.
- Your Video, which delivers recommendations based on a user's viewing history.
- Web Browser, which offers full web browsing right from your TV.
- Samsung Apps, the world's first HDTV-based application store, which offers a range of paid and free apps that help people connect to their various passions — whether in sports, entertainment, information, games or social networking.
