CES 2009: Samsung HDTVs with wireless DLNA, YouTube, LEDs, ktichen sinks

Samsung Series 8 LED TV
Last, but by no means least in this little round-up of HDTVs at CES 2009, comes the biggest gun of all – Samsung, the world’s biggest gadget manufacturer, who’ve launched a seemingly endless number of new HDTVs. Joining LG, Samsung have also been showing off a new range of Internet TV-equipped TVs that also feature Yahoo!’s new Widget Channel technology for direct access to YouTube, Yahoo! and Web content and Flickr images direct to the TV.

Wireless DLNA

Not content with Internet TV, though, Samsung have also equipped its Series 6 and 8 Plasma TVs with wireless DLNA, which means you can access all the content from any of your DLNA-equipped devices (mobile phones, cameras, PCs, etc.) wirelessly. You can view, browse and control the content directly through the TV without any wires whatsoever. And if your device doesn’t have DLNA, that’s OK too, as the TVs come with a USB 2.0 port!

These incredible TVs come equipped with 3GPP, MKV, WMV9 and DivX codecs, meaning you can watch videos from your devices in a wide variety of different formats.


As if all that wasn’t enough, Samsung also released a new range of LED TVs. Yes, you read right, not LCD TVs, but genuine LED TVs, which give a much greater contrast ratio than LCD technology (which itself is currently capable of 2,000,000:1) for much deeper blacks, while consuming 40% less power than their LCD equivalent.
