Samsung Electronics America unveiled two series of plasma HDTVs, series 8 and series 6, at CES 2009.
Measuring about an inch in depth, series 8 plasma HDTVs is the world's slimmest 1080p resolution plasma sets to feature built-in ATSC tuners, Samsung claimed.
Despite their slim design, Samsung's plasma HDTVs features high contrast ratio along with Ultra Filter Bright technology, which reduces the luminance in black levels by 50%. And Samsung's exclusive Wide Color Enhancer 3 maps HD or SD signals to the panel's native color space, which covers 110% of the HD specification.
The series 8 and 6 both meet the Energy Star 3.0 efficiency standard.
