Indianapolis, IN – Samsung, a leader in the DLP revolution, is now taking its award-winning rear-projection HDTV line to the next level with the arrival of its 1080p models at high-end, audio/visual retailers from NATM and the Pro Group. Samsung’s dynamic lineup of large screen 1080p DLPs, which range from 50” to 71”, will be available through specialty retailers including 6th Avenue Electronics, Tweeter, Ultimate Electronics, Magnolia Home Theater within select Best Buy locations and Good Guys. Select models of Samsung’s 1080p line will be on display at the Samsung booth (#393) during CEDIA 2005, September 9-11 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis.
“As a market leader in DLP™ rear projection displays, Samsung is now bringing all the benefits and advanced performance of 1080p HDTV sets to our customers,” said Jim Sanduski, VP of Marketing for Samsung’s Visual Display Group. “Samsung is committed to offering the highest quality sets to consumers and by working with selected high-end audio/video specialty retailers, we are able to reach key demographics and provide those with a true love of superior picture quality with the ultimate display.”
Samsung’s suite of 1080p DLPs includes its coveted 68-Series, 78-Series and 88-Series. The 68-Series features the 56” HL-R5668W (MSRP $4,199), the 61” HL-R6168W (MSRP of $4,699), and is anchored by the company’s largest DLP TV, the 67” HL-R6768W (MSRP $5,999). Samsung’s 68-Series incorporates a unique floating screen design that separates the screen and bezel from its base to create a stunning visual effect even when the set is off. The cutting-edge Cinema Smooth™Generation 6 1080P HD engine provides the ultimate HDTV experience, and 30 watts of audio deliver a robust sound experience.
“Samsung is a flat-out technology leader that truly understands the HDTV marketplace and Magnolia Home Theater is proud to offer our customers the dependability and quality of the Samsung brand,” states Rick Wigens, Business Team Leader, Video/Audio of Magnolia Home Theater. “Samsung’s 68-Series of 1080p DLP HDTVs combines design elegance with top-notch picture performance, and for our high-end customer base who demand perfection, that’s a winning combination.”

The 78-Series sports Samsung’s Cinema Smooth™ 1080p Light Engine to provide outstanding color and deep black levels for the highest screen resolution available in a consumer DLP. The full HDTV pixel count (920 x 1080p) digital format converter provides a high-performance digital picture from both HDTV and analog sources. The latest generation of Samsung’s DNIe video enhancer optimizes motion, contrast and colors for a smooth, film-like picture without the threat of burn-in effects.
