PN51F8500 - Samsung 51" Black Plasma 1080p 3D HDTV

TAKING CINEMATIC VIEWING TO NEW HEIGHTS

The Samsung Smart Plasma TV PN51F8500 is the ultimate picture you’ve been waiting for and the best performance we have to offer. It starts with the new Super Contrast Panel, which delivers unprecedented brightness, the deepest black levels and precise colors and clarity. We’ve also added Cinema Smooth™ to give anything you watch film-like smoothness, no matter the original motion quality. These advanced picture features bring out every high definition detail of your favorite movies, sports and shows right off the Samsung 51" plasma. And you’ll have no problem finding your favorites or discovering new ones with our new Smart Hub – a faster way to navigate TV content. This intuitive central menu organizes and personalizes your entertainment world into five panels: On-TV, Movies and Shows, Social, Apps and a panel for your personal photos, videos and music.

Swipe between these panels using simple hand gestures and even use S-Recommendation with Voice Interaction to ask things like “what action movies are on?” The S-Recommendation search engine will find your favorite TV shows, movies and stored content – making what’s on TV an easy choice. You can also share photos and videos from your compatible smart devices to your TV – or use your smartphone and tablet to watch what’s on your TV. The design marvel of the Samsung 51-inch plasma continues with the beautiful brushed metal frame with curved lines that elegantly rests on a complementing stand. The F8500 is our newest commitment of meeting the highest expectations.

Specifications:

PICTURE QUALITY

  • Super Contrast Panel: Whether watching a beautifully shot movie or sporting event the new Super Contrast Panel gives your TV picture incredible brightness and contrast. Larger Red/Green/Blue sub-pixel color areas within the panel create a picture that rivals LED TVs for brightness. To further improve the already impressive Plasma TV black levels, the Super Contrast Panel combines two key innovations. The Real Black Pro filter improves deep black levels in bright room conditions, and Adaptive Reset Control does the same for darker rooms. The result is deep, rich colors and spectacular contrast.
  • Real Black Pro: Through a technology advancement to both the hardware and software of the TV, viewers can experience a richer picture quality with deeper blacks, bolder color, and higher contrast . By improving the reflection reduction properties of the panel, combined with improving the reset pulse algorithm in the software, users can get the most cinematic viewing experience with the Real Black Pro.
  • Full HD 1080p: The realistic detail of Full HD images invites you to enjoy a viewing experience that redefines reality.
  • 600Hz Subfield Motion: Samsung Plasma TV generates a frame of video at 600 times a second. The result is smoother images with unprecedented picture quality, especially beneficial when viewing sports and fast action movies.
  • Cinema Smooth Plus™ Cinema smooth adjusts the frame rate of the panel for displaying 24fps source movies on Blu-ray Disc®, dedicated 24p cable and satellite channels at this native frame rate. The resulting video characteristic is a smoother and more natural film like experience. Content originated in 24p but delivered to the TV at 30fps or 60 fps may have inherent motion judder, Samsung’s Motion Judder Canceller smooths video content affected by poor processing.
  • Wide Color Enhancer Plus: Enhances hues by expanding the color range for a more vivid viewing experience especially beneficial when watching older film productions and non high definition content. Clear Image Panel: The clear image technology feature provides anti-reflection for a better viewing experience. The single layer panel structure eliminates the production of dual images and blurring, especially at off angled viewing.
