What is Clear Motion Rate in my Samsung F series TV?

Clear Motion Rate (CMR) is Samsung's additional comprehensive measure for how well an LCD or LED TV can display fast-moving images. It is a world-class motion clarity that lets you detect tiny details of the scenes and capture every bit of the action in Samsung TV. 


Previously, Motion clarity was expressed simply by the panel refresh rate, measured in Hertz (Hz). Samsung's more comprehensive Clear Motion Rate takes into account of all three factors that contribute to motion clarity: Panel Refresh Rate, Image Processor Speed and Backlight Technology. 


When watching a high action content the television is required to refresh itself multiple times to cater motion, colour and loading the correct content on time. This requires a faster processor to handle the data coming through (in frames per second) and display on the television. The image processor then outputs this information and converts that to an image using the backlight of your television. The image processor refreshes this information several times per second measured in seconds (For example, 200Hz - 200 cycles per second).

Clear motion rate

Panel Refresh Rate : Samsung's screen refresh rate significantly improves motion detail and resolution by sampling the image more frequently leading to smoother and fluid movement. 


Image Processor : Samsung's proprietary image processing technology is faster and more responsive than conventional image processors, as it interpolates intermediate frames to smooth out the image. 


Backlight Technology : Samsung's backlight regulates output precisely in synchronization with the screen refresh to lessen the time it is lit, reducing ghosting and motion blur.
