Samsung Launches 3D LED-Lit TVs
Samsung Electronics officially announced its line of 3D LED TVs and full lineup of 3D home entertainment products to consumers worldwide.
Samsung Electronics this week officially announced its line of 3D LED TVs and full lineup of 3D home entertainment products to consumers worldwide.
Aimed squarely at the consumer market, Samsung also unveiled a promotional program in which anyone who purchases a 2010 Samsung 3D TV and 3D Blu-ray player or home theater system will receive a 3D starter kit that includes two pairs of Samsung 3D active glasses and a first time, feature-length 3D Blu-ray version of DreamWorks Animation's 2009 release, Monsters vs. Aliens.
Samsung's new 3D TV lineup includes the LED 7000/8000/9000 Series, LCD 750 Series, and the plasma 7000/8000 Series. 3D-capable 46-inch and 55-inch LED C7000 models will be available this month, with the remaining 3D TVs rolling out over the next several months, according to the company.
The premium LED TV models, the C7000, C8000 and C9000, feature Samsung's Real240Hz refresh rate technology and its proprietary built-in 3D processor, which the company says is compatible with "major 3D format standards." When not in the 3D mode, the TVs revert to normal operation at the push of a button, according to Samsung officials.
The LED TVs also come with Internet@TV connectivity, which includes what Samsung has called the first HDTV app store. Samsung Apps allows users to download and view applications on their TV screens.
Samsung says its 3D LED TVs exceed Energy Star 4.0 guidelines.
