New Delhi, October 23, 2012: Samsung Electronics, a leader in digital media and digital convergence technologies, today announced the launch of its 75ES9000 LED Smart TV in the Indian market. The best-in-class ES9000 meets the rising market demand for 152 centimeters and larger televisions, and delivers a unique design concept with a beautiful rose-gold-coloured finish. As part of the extra-large-screen premium TV lineup, the introduction of the ES9000-the ultimate TV-positions Samsung to be the global TV market leader for the seventh consecutive year.
“The ES 9000 represents superior quality, best in class performance and features in a very sophisticated and elegant design. It provides consumers with a pure immersive viewing experience,” said Mr. Mahesh Krishnan, Vice President - Consumer Electronics, Samsung India. The set’s unique and timeless design concept includes a super-slim 7.9 millimeter curved bezel with no visible seams, cleanly complementing the TV’s square stand. Additionally, the TV’s built-in camera is hidden within the top of the bezel, rendering it invisible when not in use. Finally, the application of a luxurious rose-gold-coloured finish to the entire body of the set makes it one of the most unique and attractive smart TVs to date.
The ES9000 includes the complete suite of Samsung’s Smart TV features-Smart Interaction, Smart Content and Smart Evolution-that were introduced with Samsung’s flagship Smart TVs earlier this year. These features enable users to control and interact with their TVs in a more intuitive way; choose from a broader range of premium and signature content that can be shared across multiple devices; and access the latest hardware and software features to constantly receive updates on their Smart TVs. The ES9000 also includes Sound Share, the newest Smart TV feature, which automatically and wirelessly connects TV audio to Samsung’s Series 6 and Series 7 Wireless Audio with Dock Systems. Furthermore, the ES9000 offers a faster and more seamless Smart TV experience to fit the ultimate lifestyle, through a new dual-core processor that allows consumers to download and use multiple apps while browsing the Web.
The ES9000’s picture quality matches this enhanced Smart TV experience, utilising Samsung’s Micro Dimming Ultimate and Precision Black technology to deliver richer, more optimised colour and detail; higher contrast ratios; a 30 percent improvement in sharpness and black levels; and a 60 percent improvement in brightness levels over the ES8000 series-supporting larger screen sizes and longer viewing distances.
Samsung has also introduced the new Angry Birds app for its Smart Interaction-enabled TVs. For the first time ever, consumers will be able to enjoy Angry Birds entirely with gesture controls – no controller needed. With just the wave of the hand, fans can control game play features including initiating the slingshot and activating the unique skills of each bird. Angry Birds will be available via free download on Samsung's ES7500, ES8000 LED, ES9000 LED TVs and E8000 Plasma TVs. The ES9000 is available at select Samsung authorized stores across the country at a price of Rs. 750,000/-.
