For 2013, Samsung is introducing the F7500 and F8000 series LED Smart TVs. The F8000 (pictured above) offers more vibrant and richer colors, higher contrasts and a brighter picture quality than ever before. With Samsung’s proprietary Micro Dimming Ultimate technology, the TV line brings greater contrast, deeper black levels and maximum brightness of 3D images, allowing for an amazing image. The F8000 is the world’s first Smart LED TV with a quad-core processor, so consumers can toggle between apps, online services and on-air TV quickly and easily without missing a moment of their favorite entertainment. The F8000 will be available this year in 46”, 55”, 60”, 65” and 75” class screen sizes.
For a TV that offers a dramatic design revolution, the Samsung F7500 is a beautiful piece of art that effortlessly complements any living room set up. Its slim bezel with rose gold accents creates sophisticated lines that flow elegantly into the base, forming a stunning ripple effect along the bottom of the TV. Samsung’s Micro Dimming Pro technology delivers sharper contrast, deeper blacks and crystal clear detail enhancements. The F7500 includes the same quad-core processor offered in the F8000, enabling Smart Interaction and other advanced features. It is available in 46”, 55”, and 60” class screen sizes.
Samsung Smart Hub has been redesigned to simplify the process of discovery for consumers. Apps and content are arranged into five dynamic panels with an easy-to-navigate interface and dynamic thumbnails for instant previews. These panels are:
- On TV – shows the channel that is currently playing as well as the most relevant, personalized suggestions that may be airing shortly based on consumer viewing habits
- Movies & TV Shows – an easy view of movies and TV services and over-the-top content that are available from various content providers. Content is recommended based on the consumer’s viewing habits
- Photos, Videos & Music – allows consumers to organize personal content and files on Samsung Smart TVs and other linked devices
- Social – highlights user-created content from friends and family, popular videos from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and video call services
- Apps – organizes downloaded Samsung Apps and recommendations for easy access
Samsung’s new S-Recommendation technology also enables the discovery of personalized content based on previous viewings and user ratings. Available on Samsung 2013 Smart TVs, Smart home theater and Smart Blu-ray players, S-Recommendation checks preferred content across various services, including broadcast TV, streaming video-on-demand content, applications, social content and locally-stored content from personal devices to ensure there is always something to watch.
Samsung’s advanced Smart Interaction utilizes powerful algorithms to ensure even more enhanced voice and motion controls. With advanced Voice Interaction, consumers can use everyday language to command the TV. Viewers can also ask their TV to search for content currently available by actor, title or genre, and it will provide recommendations.
Motion Control now recognizes more natural movements, with two-handed gestures and better viewing environment flexibility. Viewers can pinch to zoom, or use a flip motion to easily navigate between Smart Hub panels.
Setting up a home entertainment network between compatible devices is easy with Samsung’s AllShare. Once consumers have connected their Samsung Smart TVs to other devices in the same wireless network using built-in wireless connectivity features, they can easily send and receive images and audio between devices.
