Samsung Series 7 and 8 LCD TVs launched

Samsung Electronics Australia has today launched its latest range of LCD televisions, the Series 7 and Series 8 – marking an evolution in design and a revolution in television connectivity.

Both TVs feature Samsung’s subtle ruby red Crystal Design and Samsung’s new networking and content features. The Series 8 steps it up with a super slim frame that measures less than two inches.

Developed to enrich lifestyles and the entertainment experience, the Samsung Series 7 and 8 offer four key media solutions to take the television experience to the next level

  • InfoLive is an innovative feature which provides constant connection with a real-time RSS viewer for news, weather and stock information. Bring up live internet feeds while watching your favourite movie or TV show at the same time.
  • WISELINK pro makes it possible to plug and play favourite pictures, videos, movies and music through USB 2.0 connections. Grab the digital camera and entertain friends and family in the lounge room when you play back photos on the big screen.
  • DLNA links your TV with your home PC to access any stored entertainment and media files. Now mum and dad can watch a movie in the lounge room while the children watch a slideshow upstairs, from the computer in the study.
