SAMSUNG’S 1080P DLP HDTV Gen 7 Models Raise Bar For Luxury Large Screen Technology

New York, NY - Consumers can once again look to Samsung for luxury home theatre technology in its latest line of large screen DLP HDTVs. The company's seventh-generation line of high-end 1080p models feature a sleek new design and Samsung's revolutionary DACS speaker system, at more affordable prices. Samsung's 7th generation 87 Series makes the luxury home theater experience more affordable and feature-rich than ever, integrated seamlessly into almost any living room with a slim profile and sleek "hidden" speaker design.

"As a market leader in the high definition television technology, Samsung continues to innovate and expand the horizons of DLP panel technology and design with consumers in mind," said Dan Schinasi, Senior Marketing Manager for Projection TV for Samsung Electronics America. "Our new 87 Series DLPs feature outstanding picture quality, superior sound systems and advanced digital connectivity that make it even more attractive for consumers to enjoy all the benefits of a 1080p resolution HDTV. These new DLPs have new features that address the unique needs of the exploding video game market and the growing trend toward high definition digital devices, while satisfying consumer desire for form over function."

Samsung's breakthrough DACS (Dedicated Acoustic Chamber Speakers) feature dual dedicated acoustic chambers for low-range, separate mid/high-range speakers, and a robust 10 watt x 2 audio system. With their sophisticated glossy black finish, and 61", 56" and 50" screen sizes, the 87 Series DLPs are the perfect complement to even the most stylish home décor.

The 50" HL-S5687W, 56" HL-S5687W, and the 61" HL-S6187W feature the latest Texas Instruments DLP® chip for Full HD 1920 x 1080p HDTV images.

The Cinema Smooth™ Gen 7 Exclusive Light Engine creates a picture with no visible pixel structure for a captivating, theater-quality experience. Samsung's Digital Natural Image Engine (DNIe™) optimizes the picture from any input signal. The built-in HDTV-ATSC meets the industry standard for receiving free over-the-air digital TV broadcasts.

Samsung's 87 Series DLP models feature the latest digital connectivity enhancements. Gamers will become totally immersed in the latest video games played in Game Mode, which delivers their most sought after features, such as graphic optimization, dark area enhancements, increased response time and improved sound capacity.
