INTERACT USING INTUITIVE VOICE AND MOTION CONTROL
Controlling your TV will never be the same again, thanks to the revolutionary control systems that come as standard with the Samsung UE55ES8000. Control functions such as turning on/off your TV, changing channels, accessing apps and navigating the web using simple voice commands and motions. At the top of the TV there's a built-in camera and microphone, while the touchpad remote also has a built-in mic so you don't have to shout at the TV when the volume's turned up - clever stuff! Furthermore, face recognition let's you log on to your personal accounts without the need for passwords.
RENEW YOUR TV EVERY YEAR WITH SMART EVOLUTION
If the breakthrough controllability of this TV weren't enough, then how about the promise of future enhanced performance? This has to be the first ever TV that has been designed from scratch to be updatable. Although amongst the most advanced TVs available, the future Samsung Smart Evolution kit will heighten the performance still further - without having to go to the expense of purchasing a new TV.
AWE-INSPIRING PICTURE QUALITY
For all its futurist control and upgrade technology, the Samsung UE55ES8000 hasn't forgotten the most important part of a TV: picture quality. With standard 3D, the UE55ES8000 is better than ever with more convincing and brighter 3D images. The Samsung also offers the novelty of watching standard 2D video converted to 3D. Whether you're watching in 3D or 2D, the picture quality is the best yet from a Samsung LED screen. Helping the UE55ES8000 achieve its class best picture is a feature called Ultimate Micro Dimming. This optimises contrast for deeper blacks and brighter whites. It also brings out levels of detail that would have previously been lost. In addition to Micro Dimming there's Samsung's Digital Noise Filter. This is especially effective with TV broadcasts - the UE55ES8000 is one TV that doesn't just excel with 1080p HD material only to be let down when watching "ordinary" TV - this TV impresses whatever the source. Other technologies that enhance the picture include Ultra Clear Panel and Clear Motion rate 800. The Ultra Clear Panel does as expected and eliminates the grimy look that can afflict some panels. Clear Motion, meanwhile, gets to grips with motion blur and scans the image so fast that blurred sports action is a thing of the past.
THE SMARTEST SMART TV TO DATE
Already leaders in the field, Samsung have improved their Smart Hub technology to new heights. New to the Hub are three individual group services - Kids, Fitness and Family Story. Providing child's entertainment, exercise apps and the easy storage and access of your photos and videos, the Smart Hub is now more connected than ever. From the Smart Hub you can also choose Samsung apps, select and control external USB drives for recording, access the Electronic Programme guide, search for apps and DLNA sources and, finally, still watch the live signal feed in a corner of the screen. Within the Smart Hub you'll find access to a web browser which is ideal for finding those web sites not covered by the built-in apps. What's more, you can join your network via the Ethernet connection or built-in Wi-fi. No fewer than three USB sockets are on hand with the option of connecting a hard drive to one for recording TV (controllable from the Smart Hub). Other features are too numerous to list in full but include Skype compatibility, smart phone remote application, three HDMI sockets, Samsung Allshare (powered by DLNA) and 3D by Bluetooth for enhanced glasses' battery life.
STUNNING GOOD LOOKS
Just like last year's Samsung LED Smart TVs, the UE55ES8000 looks sensational. With a bezel that's just a few mm thick it almost looks as though the picture is floating above the stand. Furthermore, the space taken up is still less than many 50 inch TVs. Add a depth of less than 31mm and a light weight and, for a large screened TV, this is an incredibly versatile and easy to position TV. Samsung's innovative new 'ski' stand also makes the ES8000 stand out from the crowd and gives it added style and grace.
For the future in TV now and beyond, the Samsung UE55ES8000 is simply visionary.
