I just purchased my Samsung PN-58A650 today and was on the Samsung FAQ site ( http://www.samsung.com/us/support/faqs/supportFaq.do ) when I noticed three model numbers I have never seen before:

PN50A760T1F

PN58A760T1F

PN63A760T1F


To get to these, pick televisions, plasma tv's, and then scroll down until you see them in the list, just below the A650's.


When you select them to go to their FAQ page, no image is shown unfortunately.


Has anyone heard anything about the A760 models, ie release dates, images, specs?

It looks like the first information on what might be the new model came out at IFA:
http://www.engadgethd.com/2008/07/18...hdtvs-emerges/


Only the 50" and 63" model were shown though, the names start with PS instead of PN, and they are labeled as 750 series instead of 760, so I am not sure if these are actually the new model coming to the US, or just a new model overseas.


The first obvious difference appears to be the red color is now on the stand, and the shaft of the stand:



In the pdf for the 50" model, something called real 100hz has been added, but that is not listed for the 63" model. Also, both are still using 18bit processing with a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, ultra filter bright, and DNIe pro.


Link to additional info and more pictures:
http://presse.samsung.de/news/ifa_pressemappe.aspx


In case you don't follow the LCD forum on this site, the new Samsung LCD's are going to have new bezels also, one with a blue TOC, and one with no color:




It should be interesting to see if the plasma will get the blue bezel, since it looks pretty nice.

Could these be using 2.5 lumen tech like the Kuros?

The 9G kuros use upper 3 Lumens/watt tech.

One of the magazine reviews basically indicated how Samsung can make this claim. When the set is in Dynamic mode and senses that there is no picture being outputted (i.e., when a program fades to black), it is programmed to essentially "turn off" all lightoutput to the phosphors, in effect, giving a perfect black (or something like that, excuse my non-technical mumbo jumbo).


Only in Dynamic mode, and never happens during actualy viewing of material. I.e., useless.

What is that 100Hz mode about?



EU Sammy LCDs have 100Hz modes as well but here in the US they are 120Hz with Auto Motion Plus......could this mean the US version of this PDP will have an LCD-ish 120Hz Auto Motion Plus mode

hmph, would be nice if at least one of these higher end plasma series (although i cant so far see what would be better about he 7 series) would have a 42" version to compare to the Panasonic 800u's.


kudos to samsung for finally offering a no color option, that touch of color is just not classy to me. I wonder how their second stab at LED local dimming will do, i personally dont really have high hopes of it being any kind of above and beyond greatness though if the 81 series was any indication.

I totally agree. The post about the no-color makes it sound like it will just be on the LCD unfortunately. I can't believe the new plasmas are adding color to the stand rather than using less color. Going the wrong direction IMO.

The PN63A760T1F should be a thing of beauty to look forward to. I wasn't impressed with the 6374, however, this should give the 6020FD a run for its money and is taking a stab at Panasonic's Viera Cast. Although the 63A760 only displays the weather from its InfoLink™ technology.


Given the fact that the A650 black level performance is getting close to the Kuro, this one should be equal!

I have been saying for 2 years that Samsung has the financial power to catch Pioneer at some point. They have already surpassed Panasonic.A year from now people will be talking about Samsung as the standard. Many AVS members will be jumping off ledges. D-Nice will have threads with Samsung settings

omeletpants, I have that among the many reasons why I like the Samsungs is their design philosophy. They take a more comprehensive approach to improving PQ IMO.

Paul, I was at Samsung's American HQ in NJ awhile back and these guys aren't messing around. They are the largest flat panel maker in the world. Have endless amounts of money for R&D and are driven. What's interesting is the percentage of Koreans working for them at their NJ HQ. It's like 99%. They even import Korean secretaries into the US. The reason this is important is that they are singularly focused on winning and want only people that have the same focus and cultural background and stake in their success.

This TV looks like a real contender, I already love the look of the outside because of the 650 LCD and I bet the picture will look even better.

Now that's impressive.

It reads like Samsung is commited to improving the technology.

There is more info about the LCD's also on the home page of Engadget.


Sorry I can post links:


Samsung's Series 7 Plasma HDTVs Expand the Horizons of Luxurious Home Theater Design and Multimedia Capability


Enhanced Connectivity and Superior Picture Performance Deliver a Premium Experience


RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics, the market leader in HDTV design and innovation, continues to deliver the ultimate form of "functional art" to consumers with the Series 7 Plasma HDTV featuring Samsung's ToC (Touch of Color) designed bezel. Born from the craftsmanship behind delicately blown glass to the balanced beauty of a sunset, the ToC design features a hint of red color blended into a piano black bezel. In addition to boasting a cutting-edge design, the Series 7 Plasma HDTVs deliver a superior Full HD1080p picture with up to a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio for crisp detail and vibrant colors, all supported by Samsung's Ultra FilterBright technology. For the home theater connoisseur, the Series 7 offers the option to calibrate the TV for both day-time and night-time viewing to ensure optimal picture quality in any setting.


With the Series 7 plasma HDTV, Samsung looks to elevate consumers' home theaters with a premier design and an encompassing viewing experience, said Steve Panosian director of Visual Display Marketing at Samsung Electronics America. By combining superior connectivity and networking options with the latest audio-visual technologies, the Series 7 Plasma is certain to further refine most any home theater setup.


Touch of Color


Reflecting Samsung's mantra for design creativity, the Series 7 leaves the traditional look of HDTV design and employs the aesthetically pleasing ToC bezel. Samsung is the first manufacturer in the HDTV industry to use dual-injection molding technology which infuses color to the bezel rather than using spray paint. By controlling the density of the color injection, the resulting bezel shows a natural gradation from red to black color for a distinct yet elegant appearance.


Superior Picture Performance


The Full HD 1080p Series 7 features a dynamic contrast ratio of up to 1,000,000:1 for deeper blacks and purer whites onscreen. Samsung's Ultra Filter Bright anti-glare technology keeps the picture clear and bright even in well-lit environments, while the next-generation DNIe Pro video processing and 18-bit Natural True Color ensure the subtle details are not sacrificed.


Day / Night Calibration Modes


For consumers looking for the ultimate home theater experience, the Samsung Series 7 Plasma HDTV features a professional day-time and night-time calibration mode for optimized viewing. The two special customization and enhancement modes can only be accessed once a professional calibrator makes the necessary adjustments and saves the picture settings made to match the ambient lighting in the room. Then the consumer can instantly select the saved picture settings, and experience the best possible HDTV viewing at any time of the day.


InfoLink


The Series 7 Plasma HDTV features the one-button, on-demand InfoLink RSS service. Powered by content from USA Today, InfoLink instantly displays news, weather and stock information onscreen via adjustable overlays. As the ultimate form of luxury and convenience for the always-connected consumer, InfoLink allows users to view stock quotes from their personal portfolio and local weather information. There is no need to change the channel to get a five-day forecast of the weather or instant access to stock quotes and news once connected to a home network with Internet access.


Superior Connectivity


The Series 7 Plasma offers a host of connection options to enjoy a growing library of digital content. Simply plug a memory drive or digital camera in the side-mounted USB 2.0 port and WiseLink Pro turns the television into a jukebox or photo album. The TV recognizes not only MP3 and JPEG files but also XviD and MPEG4 files to enjoy video playback. In addition, it comes with a Digital Content Management feature that allows the user to sort images based on usual parameters like time and even more uncommon ones like color and composition. Additionally, the Series 7 Plasmas are compatible with DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) for easy connection to and content sharing with other DLNA-CERTIFIED products, such as a computer.


Recognizing that more consumers use their HDTV as the cornerstone of their home entertainment centers, Samsung also added enhanced connectivity to the Series 7 Plasma. Consumers can connect to, access, and manage more of the latest HD devices than ever before with a total of four HDMI 1.3 inputs (three at the rear, one on the side). Beyond their ability to handle the latest color and HD audio processing, all four connections include CEC networking, allowing control of multiple components using only the TV's remote control.


The Samsung Series 7 Plasma HDTVs will be available in August in 50-inch, 58-inch and 63-inch screen sizes (model numbers: PN50A760, PN58A760 and PN63A760).


Wireless LinkStick Accessory


For added convenience, the Samsung Wireless LinkStick allows consumers to access the InfoLink feature on their Series 7 Plasma HDTV wirelessly. While a connection to the Internet via an appropriate modem and wireless router is still required, consumers will no longer need to run an Ethernet cable directly to their HDTV. The Wireless LinkStick (WIS-08BGX/XAA) is available now with an estimated selling price of $34.99.
