Samsung launches new HD televisions

New user interface and wheel key remote part of launch package for screens.

Samsung Electronics is using GITEX Technology Week as the launch pad for its new Series 8 and Series 7 full HD televisions.

The plasma and LCD screens include the company's InfoLive feature that allows viewers to stream news, weather and stock information directly through the internet.

"The new series 8 and 7 TVs offer an even more sophisticated crystal design with an inlaid pattern as well as genuine stylishness, made possible by a slim design and bezel," says BJ Kim, general manager, AV Division, Samsung Gulf Electronics.

"Samsung has strengthened its technological and stylish leadership in the Audio Visual industry by becoming the number one TV manufacturer in the world and we are happy to launch our new technology with the Series 8 and 7 to the rest of the region during GITEX 2008."

Series 8 TVs are available in either 46 or 52-inch models.

The new user interface has been simplified and is ideal for accessing and managing content from external memory. The unit's newly designed wheel key remote control allows users to quickly jog through the Smart Content Manager or access more frequently watched channels.

Recognising that TVs are no longer just for viewing broadcasts, Samsung has installed media solution features such as the USB connection, through which users can instantly enjoy their photos, downloaded content, and user generated content.
