SAMSUNG Goes High and Wide with Enhanced 30" HD Flat-Screen TV in the 16:9 Format

New 30"" Widescreen DynaFlat(tm) Features Finer Screen Resolution And Smaller Dot Pitch In Stylishly Designed TV
Ridgefield Park, NJ - August 27, 2001 - Samsung Electronics enhances its position as a leader and innovator in the high-definition and flat-screen television arena with the debut of a new 30"" DynaFlat TV (Model: TSL-3099WHF). Featuring a widescreen 16:9 viewing ratio and patented new technology for improved flat-screen resolution, the new TV is the flagship of the Tantus(tm) DynaFlat series.

One of the challenges in reproducing a high-resolution image with flawless, crisp color is maintaining a bright and clear picture. Samsung's TSL-3099WHF accomplishes that and more. This short-depth, wide and flat screen CRT digital monitor can natively display a 1080i video signal. The set employs a combination of screen advancements to create a superb picture. A new type of shadow mask called the Advanced Tension Optimized Mask (ATOM) allows the electron beam greater pin-point precision than ever before. Design improvements on the electron gun and at the phosphor level contribute to the overall quality. All this is accomplished while reducing the footprint depth of the set as much as 20% over competitive models.

""The short-depth and eye-catching design of Samsung's new 30"" DynaFlat set it apart from other TVs on the market today. Because the picture tube is among the world's slimmest at 17.9"" deep, the set has a sleek, almost window-like design that fits into any entertainment environment,"" states John Lavoie, National Marketing Manager for Samsung Electronics America.

Samsung's intuitive Universal Remote and a translucent on-screen display conveniently guide users through the DynaFlat's many unique features and controls such as Picture-And-Picture (PAP). With the press of a button and with no need for extra connections, the two-tuner Picture-and-Picture allows a viewer to split the screen and enjoy two equal-sized pictures side-by-side. Viewers can enjoy the best of both worlds by catching the weather or financial reports on half of the set, while watching the big game on the other half. The DynaFlat also offers Picture-in-Picture (PIP), providing a smaller secondary window for viewing a second program.

The TSL-3099WHF has a bevy of controls that allow the viewer to customize the picture and sound. Panoramic lets a 4:3 image fill the widescreen optimizing key areas for the best possible viewing. The TSL-3099WHF incorporates Samsung's powerful, internal subwoofer satellite audio system. The bass frequencies are contained in a separate ported enclosure located at the back, while the mid and highs are directed out of front-firing speakers. As a result, human voices sound clearer and the overall sound is more dynamic. A Dolby Pro Logic(r) processor with connection terminals and an on-screen equalizer offers sound flexibility while viewing.

The TSL-3099WHF incorporates the latest picture enhancement technology. A Pro Chip(tm) NTSC-to-progressive scan system improves typical TV viewing by combining odd and even scan lines for a flicker-free image, much like what is found on today's better computer monitors. A 3D Y/C Comb Filter and Velocity Scan Modulation circuitry help ensure that the picture is crisp from edge-to-edge. The corners maintain focus - a challenge overcome by Samsung with a Multi Focus Electron Gun. For the discerning consumer who likes to customize the viewing experience , a full complement of picture controls can optimize the picture from DVD to the various types of TV programming.

The TSL-3099WHF is intended for anyone who appreciates the beauty found in a digital widescreen High Definition TV. It is available now for $2,799 MSRP. - - 3 -
