Samsung’s Head of Consumer Electronics Marketing, Mark Leathan said, “At less than two inches deep with a subtle ruby red bezel and matching stand, the Samsung Series 8 is just stunning. The ultra slim bezel and elegant design modifications will set this television apart. The Series 8 also packs the four media solutions as standard into this lean machine.”
The four media solutions include the InfoLive feature which provides constant connection with a real-time RSS viewer for news, weather and stock information, WISELINK pro that makes it possible to plug and play favourite pictures, videos, movies and music through USB 2.0 connections, DLNA connectivity, and built-in Content Library which includes content such as fitness programmes, delicious recipes and games for children.
The Samsung Series 8 is available in 46 and 52 inches from October 2008 for $4,999 and $6,299 respectively.
In addition to the Series 8, Samsung has also unveiled the Series 7 line of TVs that provides networking capabilities, the four media solutions, as well as a new down firing speakers and subwoofers for better sound output.
“The Samsung Series 7 LCD TV is a serious step-up from the previous Series 6, where Samsung cemented our market leadership position within Australia. The four innovative media solutions that come standard on Series 7 and 8 are going to excite all those people who want to connect their TV with other services and devices,” added Mark Leathan.
The Samsung Series 7 is available in 40, 46 and 52 inches in October 2008 at recommended retail prices of $3,999, $4,699 and $5,999 respectively.
