SAMSUNG Launches Largest LCD On The Market; Lights The Way For Next-Gen Displays With First-Ever LCD HDTV With An LED Back Light

Las Vegas, NV - Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a world leader in display technology and innovation, launches the LCD market to the next level with its most ambitious LCD TV line ever. Anchored by the world's largest high-definition LCD TV, the 1080p 57" LNR570D Widescreen LCD HDTV, the new line also features two CES Innovations Award-winning products: the 46" LNR460D, which employs the very first LCD HDTV LED backlight, and the 40" LNR409D, the first LCD to feature a Flat Fluorescent Lamp. Samsung's not-to-be-missed LCD TV line will be on display during CES 2005 in the Samsung booth, #11024 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 6th - 9th.

"Samsung is known for it's LCD innovation, and the advanced production techniques at our world's-first Generation 7 LCD fabrication facility have produced a line of LCDs that are unparalleled in performance," said Jonas Tanenbaum, Senior Marketing Manager of Flat Panel and Direct View Products for Samsung Electronics America. "Samsung is taking a lead in not only making large LCD screens more affordable, but in pushing the size and technology envelopes to give consumers to the best performing, most enhanced picture solutions available today."

The 57" LNR570D Widescreen LCD HDTV reinforces Samsung's technology leadership with a host of features that make the set a must-have for the A/V elite. The largest consumer LCD HDTV on the market, the LNR570D features a built-in ATSC Tuner, Cable CARD and state-of-the-art video reproduction capabilities. True high resolution with 1920 x 1080 progressive scanning displays today's digital video in stunning 6.2-million pixel clarity. With high brightness (600cd), a high response time (faster than 8ms) and a contrast ratio greater than 1000:1, the top-of-the-line LCD HDTV offers matchless color precision and video playback that is smooth without blurring.

The outstanding 176 degree H/V viewing angle ensures picture perfect entertainment from anywhere in the room. For added performance and convenience, the LNR570D features Samsung's patented, proprietary DNIe technology for superior picture and Samsung AnyNet for home networking. A sleek, modern design makes the set the ideal centerpiece in any setting requiring ultra-high resolution, from the living room to the boardroom. The LNR570D Widescreen LCD HDTV will be available in June 2005 for an MSRP of $15,999.

The 46" LNR460D Widescreen LCD HDTV with LED Back Light cements Samsung's status at the forefront of the high-end home theater market. An Innovations Award Honoree, the LNR460D is the world's first LCD HDTV to feature the LED back light unit. This innovation provides outstanding color reproduction beyond that of a conventional LCD panel. Samsung's new screen technology results in a significantly increased NTSC color gamut (105%, compared with 72% for typical fluorescent backlit LCD TVs.) This expanded color range along with high brightness (500cd), a high contrast ratio (greater than 1000:1) and the ultimate resolution (1920 x 1080p) provide show-stopping image vividness and stunning detail. A large 170-degree H/V viewing angle makes the LNR460D a true home-theater masterpiece. The LNR460D Widescreen LCD HDTV with LED Back Light will be available in May 2005 for an MSRP of $12,999.
Samsung's 40" LNR409D Widescreen LCD HDTV, also an Innovations Award Honoree, makes history as the first LCD to feature a Flat Fluorescent Lamp (FFL) Back Light Unit. Developed in a joint effort between Samsung and Corning Ltd., the FFL enhances brightness and light uniformity. Featuring a new 40" S-PVA (Super Patterned Vertical Alignment) panel, the LNR409D provides a best-in-class 3000:1 contrast ratio and the widest gradation of colors available in an LCD (3.2 billion) to deliver a breathtaking picture over a wide color range. A built-in ATSC digital TV tuner and a cable card slot render along with Samsung's AnyNetä technology provides convenient home theater networking. The LNR409D Widescreen LCD HDTV with Flat Fluorescent Lamp will be available in May 2005 for an MSRP of $5,999.

Samsung completes its line of high-end LCD televisions with the 40" LNR408D LCD HDTV and the 32" LNR328W Widescreen LCD HDTV Monitor. Both models feature 3000:1 dynamic contrast ratios (the highest available in an LCD) and a fast response time (12ms) for superb picture playback and color vibrancy on a 16:9 screen. The LNR408D Widescreen LCD HDTV will be available in July 2005 for an MSRP of $5,499. The LNR328W Widescreen LCD HDTV Monitor will be available in May 2005 for an MSRP of $2,999.
