Samsung 70" Full HD LCD TV

SYDNEY, 11 February 2008 – Samsung Electronics Australia, a leading supplier of LCD TVs, continues to create major LCD technology breakthroughs with the launch of its premium Full 1080p HD 70” LCD TV. The unique integrated HD tuner and LED Smartlighting™ ensures Samsung’s 70” LCD is the pinnacle of Full HDTVs.

This is the world’s first 70” 1080p Full HD LCD TV with integrated HD tuner, so there is no need for an additional set-top box to take full advantage of the latest free-to-air HDTV content. LED Smartlighting™ means the screen has multiple LED backlights that turn on and off independently of each other providing the exact on-screen light for each image. It is through this unique process that this TV can deliver another world’s first – a stunning 500,000:1 contrast ratio for depth and shading not available before.

“Samsung has engineered this TV with a host of technology innovations exclusive to its 70 inch size. LED Smartlighting™, 500,000:1 contrast ratio combined with 1080p resolution proves our ability to continue to revolutionise the LCD TV market. We intend to maintain our leadership position,” said Evan Manolis, Senior Product Manager – Visual, Samsung Electronics Australia.

A high-gloss, "piano black" bezel and rose gold trim accentuate the elegance and sophistication of Samsung’s new 70" LCD TV. The dual hidden speakers and rear woofer deliver the rich sound quality to match the true-to-life on-screen images.

“This is no ordinary viewing experience. This TV is for the discerning home entertainment purist who is looking for the extraordinary viewing experience. Samsung continues to demonstrate its commitment to LCD technology. We want to do things better but we also want to do them differently. If people want to realise the HDTV revolution, we need to give them reasons to experience it with Samsung,” said Rod Rodrigues, Marketing Manager – Audio Visual, Samsung Electronics Australia.

The ultimate in technology and design, this TV is at the forefront of functionality. Hidden touch controls illuminate when used and three HDMI ports make this TV your multimedia centrepiece. HDMI is the best interface for connecting and viewing High-Definition sources like Blu-ray players, gaming consoles and camcorders. Samsung’s Wiselink™ USB 2.0 port is designed for connecting a digital camera or MP3 music player.

This TV also incorporates Samsung’s Wide Colour Enhancer to ensure blues and greens appear richer and more life like. The 70” LCD TV also has Samsung’s Super Clear Panel technology, which delivers deeper and darker blacks unlocking even more incredible detail in every scene.
