Samsung Full HD 3D TVs eliminates one of the barriers of 3D adoption – lack of content – by rendering 2D content into 3D with the push of a button. Based on its strategic alliance with DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc globally, Samsung is providing for the first time, feature-length 3D Blu-ray version of DreamWorks Animation’s 2009 release, Monsters vs. Aliens (exclusive to Samsung products) with every Samsung 3D television.
From the 3D LED TVs to Plasma+ TVs, in screen sizes ranging from 40” to 65”, consumers have unlimited choice of television models to fit their individual entertainment preferences and lifestyle. Samsung’s proprietary built in video processor along with 3D processor; 3D optimized panel and Frame rate conversion technology provide the best picture quality in 3D. Fluid motion and expanded natural colour are perfectly presented with the aid of Samsung 3D TVs’ Hyper Real Engine creating an immersive viewing experience for consumers.
For those who want to add the third dimension to their regular TV viewing, Samsung has included in its 3D processor, an auto-conversion technology that renders 2D content into 3D in real time – an industry first. Thus, consumers can add a level of depth and clarity to a live football game, making them believe they are part of the action by watching in the 3D Mode.
With built-in Ethernet connection and wireless-ready capabilities, the 2010 Samsung 3D TV lineup is ready to meet the growing consumer demand for “content without borders.” The upgraded Internet@TV feature now includes Samsung Apps providing consumers with an expanded, easy to navigate selection of content and applications from leading services like The Associated Press, Blockbuster, Fashion TV, Netflix and YouTube amongst others. Applications can be downloaded and viewed all while watching TV.
