SAMSUNG’S DVD/VHS Combo Line Now Includes The First Up-Conversion Player

Las Vegas, NV - Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a pioneer in the DVD/VHS Combo category, expands its award-winning line with three enhanced new combination players, including the first player in the line up to offer high-end up-conversion technology. The new DVD-V9500, DVD-V8500, and DVD-V5500 offer the best in DVD and VHS capability in a sleek, space-saving design that reduces home theater clutter. The DVD-V9500 is Samsung's first combo player to feature up-conversion technology that lets HDTV owners get the most out of their DVD collections. Samsung's full DVD player line will be on display during CES 2005 at the Samsung booth, #11024 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 6th - 9th.

"Innovation has been a cornerstone of Samsung's DVD category leadership and that commitment continues with our advanced new combo player line," says Claude Frank, Samsung Electronics America's Director for Digital Video Systems. "Samsung was the first to introduce an up-conversion DVD player last year for stunning cinema-like DVD quality in HDTV resolutions. Now with our new DVD-V9500, HDTV owners who have invested in extensive DVD and VHS collections can get the very best out of both worlds."


Samsung adds to its best-in-class Combo line with the value-driven DVD-V5500 and DVD-V8500 players. Besides offering superior 480P DVD playback both players integrate a four -head hi-fi VCR into the same player, ensuring uncomplicated hook-up and easy playback no matter the media type (except VCD). Both players sport sleek designs with front A/V input jacks. The DVD-V8500 also supports a 10-in-2 multi-card reader for digital photo viewing that accepts virtually every popular format of memory card, including SD, Compact Flash, Mini SD, XD, MMC, Smart Media, Memory Stick and Memory Stick Pro.

For HDTV owners seeking the same DVD/VHS versatility in a single package, Samsung ups the ante with its new DVD-V9500. The player combines DVD and VCR capabilities along with the company's advanced hi-def conversion technology that up-converts a DVD's native resolution (480p) to output high-definition formats (720p/768p/1080i). This allows HDTV owners to view their existing collections of DVDs and VHS tapes in high- resolution formats. An HDMI port facilitates connections between components Like the DVD-V8500, the DVD-V9500 supports a 10-in-2 multi-card reader. And, the DVD-V9500 includes a multi-TV remote control.
