Reaching pure plasma perfection
Who needs to go to the movie theater when you can watch high definition movies with cutting-edge plasma in the comfort of your own home? Your friends and family will “ooh” and “ah” over your Samsung PN51D550 plasma 51” HD TV. Ahead of the pack, Samsung’s plasma televisions offer superior picture performance and advanced HD technology. The result? Bold contrast, bright color, crystal-clear details, and shockingly precise action during your favorite action scenes. With 1080p resolution, the PN51D550 gives you image clarity and sharp features. An incredible .001ms response time optimizes fast motion video content. You'll be able to see every move during a car chase with Samsung’s innovative 600Hz subfield motion technology. And, you'll be able to hear the wheels turning with the SRS TheatreSound system. The PN51D550 also boasts a narrow bezel with a 1" larger screen, which means you'll get a bigger picture with a narrower outer frame.
The wonderful world of 3D
Leap onto the 3D bandwagon from your own sofa! The Samsung PN51D550 also features 3D picture performance, which offers a breathtaking, cinema-quality 3D experience. How does it work? To recreate this experience of depth on television, a 3D TV will display two separate but overlapping images of the same scene simultaneously, and at slightly different angles. Watch your favorite movies transform with added depth and dimension to create larger-than-life visual experiences. HD movies in 3D come alive with eye-popping reality which practically leaps from the screen. Simply connect to a Samsung Blu-ray 3D Player to play 3D titles. You can even intensify your viewing experience by upconverting regular 2D content to immersive 3D content. See all the 3D action through Samsung's sleek Active Glasses (sold separately). You’ll be jumping out of your seat in no time!
Get more from your television
Think your TV is only for surfing channels? Think again! A dual-purpose LCD screen, the Samsung PN51D550 instantly transforms into a computer monitor via the handy PC input. Stream media from your PC or other compatible devices any time you want. What’s more? Samsung's smart ConnectShare Movie technology lets you plug in a thumb drive or other USB device right into your TV, letting you access a host of media files for you to share with your friends and family. Watch movies, check out home videos, access music playlists, view pictures, and more! The built-in user-friendly menu makes sharing easy and fun.
The green scene
Green is in with the Samsung PN51D550. A classic overachiever, the PN51D550 exceeds ENERGY STAR standards. And as you know, reduced energy consumption is good for Mother Nature and your pocket book.
Advanced HDMI technology
Bringing you the absolute best in connectivity, Samsung's PN51D550 features three HDMI inputs (version 1.4). HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) is the only interface in consumer electronics that can carry both uncompressed high-definition (HD) video and uncompressed multi-channel audio in all HD formats including 720p, 1080i and even 1080p. Your incoming media content comes in a variety of sizes, resolutions and formats, and with that in mind, HDMI systems automatically configure to display that content in the most effective format. Since HDMI carries all channels on video and audio, there is only one cable to plug into any HDMI-enabled source and display device. No more complicated cable set-up when installing your home theater system, and no more ugly cable mess behind your components. HDMI supports standard, enhanced, or high-definition video, plus multi-channel digital audio on this single cable. Also, HDMI is fully backward-compatible with DVI. (Please note that a physical adapter, sold separately, is needed to make the conversion from HDMI to DVI.)
