What exactly is a Smart TV?
Contrary to some belief, a Smart TV isn’t a TV which has been embedded with PC-like features. We’re talking a truly converged device which streams to multiple devices, searching desired content over DLNA-connected devices, web browsing right from the TV, social networking with friends and family screen-on-screen and extending features through apps! Yes, all on your TV. We had a chance to test out the 3D glasses on various TVs and it is undeniable that 3D will occupy your living room (and soon to your gaming device and phones!) whether you like it or not.
The Samsung AV Roadshow is currently taking place on the ground floor, Highstreet, 1 Utama Shopping centre PJ from the 13th till 17th April 2011. Do pay a visit for more exciting offers!

Samsung has expanded their number of 3D TV models so that more Malaysians can enjoy 3D home entertainment at an affordable price. Consumers will be able to choose from a wide range of TVs to suite their home and lifestyle need. The LED D8000 series TV which received a CES 2011 Innovations Design and Engineering Award was also launched at the event.
Samsung Smart Hub
Selected models will offer Samsung’s new Smart Hub which includes the following:
- Search All, to makes it easier to search for desired content on your TV and other DLNA-certified connected media storage devices, networked PC and mobile devices, and Internet and video-on-demand services.
- Your Video, which delivers recommendations based on a user’s viewing history
- Web Browser offering full web browsing right from your TV

- Samsung Apps, the world’s first HDTV-based apps store, which offers a range of paid and free apps that help people connect to their various passions – whether in sports, entertainment, information, games or social networking.
Ultra-thin Bezel for larger screen size
Samsung has successfully reduced the bezel size by up to 80 percent – an engineering feat – so that the thin bezel blends in easily with the environment, almost becoming invisible to the viewer, which then becomes even less of a distraction when watching 3D. The new bezels are the result of extensive design research, Samsung’s proprietary new panel technology and innovative signal processing technology.
The reduction in bezel size means consumers can enjoy a larger viewing screen and wider viewing angle without having to increase the physical size of their TVs. It will also make using social applications like Skype and YouTube, browsing the Web, sharing content and playing games much more inclusive.
Immersive 3D Experience
Samsung 3D LED TVs offers stunningly clear 3D pictures with the world’s best panel technology and proprietary image-improving techniques. Samsung’s unique double-rate frame transition technology – the world’s fastest – also reduces the picture frame transition time by 50 percent to enhance the viewing quality of 3D content.
As the living room continues to transform into the central media and entertainment hub of the home, Samsung re-aligned its home entertainment systems to more wholly reflect a diverse home entertainment environment. Designed to meet consumers’ ever-growing home entertainment system needs while offering a theater-like experience, many of Samsung’s 2011 home entertainment products support 2D to 3D and wireless features with superior sound quality to complement the breadth of content that people watch in their home.
Samsung has also introduced their new “3D Sound” capabilities in their home entertainment systems to give superior sound quality. This is made possible by synching sound and video to create an immersive, up-down-left-right experience enabling the sound to “move” along with the 3D picture.
Further, in 2011 Samsung has broken new ground in its Total 3D Solution, which includes four different models of 3D glasses with Bluetooth connectivity from the entry to premium level, and a Skype™-certified TV camera—which enables video calls on a Samsung TV without a headset or webcam.
