SAMSUNG’S DVD/VHS Combo Players Integrate The Latest Technology, Slim Design, And Affordability

Las Vegas, NV - Samsung Electronics, an award-winning pioneer in the DVD/VHS market, continues to push the innovation envelope with an expanded and enhanced line of DVD/VHS combination players that includes three new models, the DVD-V5650, DVD-V8650, and DVD-V9650. The DVD-V8650 and the DVD-V9650 2006 players offer premium DVD and VHS capability in a slim, new black design that saves space and matches Samsung's stylish HDTVs. The DVD-V9650 comes just in time for the HDTV boom with digital up-conversion technology that upgrades standard DVD resolution to near high-definition quality up to 1080i. Samsung's entire DVD line will be on display during CES 2006 at the Samsung booth, #11033 in the Central Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 5th - 8th.

"Samsung was the first to introduce a DVD/VHS combo player over five years ago and once again lead the industry as the first to unveil an up-conversion DVD/VHS player last year," says Maria Colon, Samsung Electronics America's DVD Marketing Manager. "Samsung will continue to expand its use of award-winning innovation by adding new features to the new affordable DVD/VHS combo player line up."

Consumers who are looking for a way to keep their entertainment setup simple yet high tech need look no further than Samsung's new DVD-V5650 and DVD-V8650 combo players. In addition to superb 480p DVD playback, both players incorporate a four-head hi-fi VCR to provide programs that look and sound their best. Both players feature progressive scan output and convenient front A/V input jacks. The DVD-V8650 also boasts a handy 10-in-2 multi-card reader that allows users to view photos and accepts virtually every memory card format, including SD, Compact Flash, Mini SD, XD, MMC, Smart Media, Memory Stick and Memory Stick Pro.

For HDTV owners, the DVD-V9650 up-conversion DVD/VHS player fits the bill. The player combines top notch DVD and VCR playback along with the state-of-the-art hi-definition conversion technology that up-converts a DVD's native resolution (480p) to output near high-definition formats (720p/1080i). HDMI output makes it easy to connect components. The DVD-V9650 also supports a 10-in-2 multi-card reader as well as progressive scan output.

The DVD-V5650 is available in March 2006 for $99 MAP. The DVD-V8650 is available in April 2006 for $119 MAP. The DVD-V9650 is available in March 2006 for $129 MAP.
