SAMSUNG Electronics Introduces the World's Largest TFT-LCD Television

Hannover, Germany - 11 March 2005 - Reinforcing its position as a leader in the consumer electronics industry, Samsung today unveiled the world's largest 82-inch TFT-LCD television.
A flat panel TV of this size was previously possible only with plasma display panel technology. Now, the inherent qualities of TFT-LCD TV allow for a crisper image, higher resolution and much less power consumption - all at a lighter weight than plasma TV. With the introduction of the new 82-inch TFT-LCD TV, Samsung Electronics clearly demonstrates that it is ready to take the lead in the living room big-screen TV market.
Samsung's new 82-inch TFT-LCD TV also excels in performance. Its less than 8ms response time - a crucial indicator of a TFT-LCD TV's motion picture capability - ensures smooth playback of even the most action-packed visual contents. With 1920 x 1080 resolution and 16:9 screen ratio, Samsung's 82-inch LCD TV supports 1080 progressive scanning, the highest possible HDTV resolution which offers twice the picture quality of 1080 interlaced display
The resulting image is exceptionally crisp and vibrant, with brightness of 500 nits (cd/m2), a contrast ratio of 10,000:1 and 90% color gamut of the NTSC standard.
Despite its unprecedented screen size, the 82-inch TFT-LCD TV is exceptionally thin and light, even by flat-panel television standards. Due to the built-in HDMI port, Samsung's 82-inch TFT-LCD TV can also function as a computer display.
These advanced features and unparalleled screen size, combined with TFT-LCD's inherent crisp display characteristics, make Samsung's 82-inch TFT-LCD TV one of the most desirable display products available in the market
