Samsung produces 'clear' plasma TV

Samsung Clear Plasma TV

Plasma televisions often suffer in typical daytime lighting: a bright window can wash out the picture and hurt the otherwise excellent image quality typical of such screens. A final Samsung display announcement from the IFA expo marked the introduction of the new PS42/50H plasma television that solves the problem of over-bright ambient lighting through a special screen filter. Instead of adding a traditional coating to the screen, Samsung added a filter to the front glass that amplifies the internal light. This keeps the display bright and gives viewers a clearer picture: Samsung claims a 10000:1 contrast ratio and 1300 cd/m2 brightness. A processor in the display also corrects jittering and outline artifacts in images to help with fast-moving images. As with the earlier television announcement, this particular plasma television is likely intended for Europe but should be matched by a North American version soon.
