Sam­sung’s in­no­va­tive plasma se­ries

Enterprise - - Business tools -

The Sam­sung PNE8000 is be­ing re­garded as the most full-fea­tured plasma TV in the mar­ket. Ex­perts rec­om­mend the Sam­sung PNE8000 se­ries for ex­hibit­ing out­stand­ing over­all picture qual­ity, char­ac­ter­ized by ex­ceed­ingly deep black lev­els, ac­cu­rate colors, rapid video pro­cess­ing and high qual­ity 3D. Un­like LCDs, as a plasma TV it has off-an­gle and uni­for­mity char­ac­ter­is­tics of con­sumer choice. Its mas­sive fea­ture set in­cludes a touch-pad re­mote, IR blaster, two pairs of 3D glasses, mo­tion and voice com­mand, and one of the in­dus­try’s ca­pa­ble Smart TV plat­forms.

The PNE8000 is the only 2012 Sam­sung plasma to get the com­pany’s dual-core pro­ces­sor, and the only plasma that can be up­graded via the Smart Evo­lu­tion fea­ture. Sam­sung says the TV’s pro­ces­sor and mem­ory can be swapped out and up­graded at a later date (as early as 2013) and for an un­spec­i­fied fee to al­low im­proved func­tion­al­ity.

Sam­sung’s 2012 TV menus look the same as last year and re­main among the eas­i­est to use. They are bright opaque blue with rounded edges and good-sized text. Each ma­jor menu item gets a text ex­pla­na­tion

Like all Sam­sung 3D mod­els, and un­like other ma­jor-brand TVs that use ac­tive 3D tech­nol­ogy, the PNE8000 ac­tu­ally comes with 3D glasses; the new Sam­sung SSG-4100GBs and two pairs are packed into ev­ery box.

Aside from Smart In­ter­ac­tion, the other ma­jor step-up is the re­mote con­trol. In ad­di­tion to a stan­dard clicker, there is an­other that omits nu­mer­ous buttons in favour of a touch pad that is sup­posed to ease nav­i­ga­tion of the menus and Smart TV func­tions, es­pe­cially the Web browser. With blue­tooth con­nec­tiv­ity the user does not need a line of sight to the TV.

Sam­sung in­cludes a bat­tery-pow­ered Blue­tooth-to-IR blaster that al­lows the TV to di­rectly con­trol a cable box or Blu-ray/DVD player or both. The idea is to use voice and gesture com­mands, as well as the touch-pad re­mote, with these ex­ter­nal de­vices.
