Ridgefield Park, NJ-LCD TV manufacturer Samsung Electronics has sold one million of its 8-Series displays. This sales volume was achieved only one year after the 8-Series product went into mass production in February 2005. According to iSuppli, the global market for LCD TVs exceeded 19.6 million units in 2005. Out of every 20 units sold worldwide, one was a Samsung 8 Series LCD TV.
“Samsung is elated to see its award-winning “8 Series” LCD TVs surpass the one million-units-sold mark,” said John Revie, Vice President for the Visual Display Products Group. “This global accomplishment reaffirms Samsung’s place as a pioneer of superior design, quality and affordability in consumer electronics.”
In the U.S., Samsung’s 8 Series LCD TVs include the 23-inch LN-R238W, 26-inch LN-R268W, the 32-inch LN-R328W, and the 40-inch LN-R408D. All are feature-rich LCD TVs designed to complement and enhance every aspect of the home theater experience. The bottom half of the sets gently slope to form a “V”, differentiating it from other LCD TVs. Slim speakers are inconspicuously mounted on the lower part of the TVs as part of the “V”-shaped motif.
The “8 Series” features Samsung’s proprietary Patterned Vertical Alignment (PVA) technology screen for a contrast ratio of 3,000:1. This innovation translates to brighter whites, deeper blacks and truer reproduction of every shade in between than previous models. Samsung’s Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) optimizes motion, contrast, color and detail for exceptional image clarity and picture resolution. The widescreen LCDs feature a 170-degree horizontal and vertical viewing angle, allowing an optimal viewing experience from practically any seat in the room. Additionally, a high definition multimedia interface (HDMI) allows simple cable connection with HD signal devices.
