Discover what you want to watch and new content without the channel surfing, but by asking your TV. Your Smart TV will respond to your voice and find customized selections of content for you to watch based on your preferences. Simply ask your TV for recommendations while you’re watching a program, for instance “what basketball games are on?” or visit the S-Recommendation hub for new things to watch.

Built-in Pop-Up Camera
When not being used to make motion gestures to control your TV or make calls with Skype™, the camera is completely hidden in the bezel of the 46". When you’re ready to use the camera, it will pop out by applying slight pressure, essentially push-to-release.
Use hand motions to control your Samsung TV and browse the Smart Hub, play games, and more. The hand motions and gestures have been improved with Smart Interaction 2.0; it now includes more casual gestures and smooth interaction thanks to assistance from the quad-core processor.
With Smart Interaction 2.0 voice control received an update as well.

The library of commands for voice control uses everyday language to speak naturally into the Smart Touchpad Remote control and get instantaneous results.
Samsung Full HD Active 3D
Samsung 3D TVs feature Full 1080p HD 3D; the included 3D glasses never filter any lines on the TV which allow a crisp, clear picture, with minimal blurring and obscuring of the picture.
2D to 3D Conversion
Don’t have any 3D Blu-rays or have a limited amount of 3D content at your disposal, no worries; your LED TV will convert any 2D image to a 3D image. With Samsung 2D to 3D conversion your 3D library is endless.
Full HD 1080p
Samsung TVs make no compromises for picture quality. You’ll experience amazing attention to detail, regardless of the content or format, with Full HD 1080p resolution.
Clear Motion Rate (CMR) 1200
Clear Motion Rate is Samsung’s answer to an industry littered with inflated performance numbers. The current industry standard for panel refresh rates doesn’t take how well an LED can handle fast motion. CMR calculates 3 factors: panel refresh rate, image processor speed, and backlight technology. CMR is a scale based on their lowest CMR rating of 60; this 46" has a Clear Motion Rate of 1200, meaning this Samsung LED TV handles motion 20 times better than a TV with a CMR of 60. The higher the Clear Motion Rate, the better performance the TV will give you when watching fast action sports, movies, or video games.
Micro-Dimming Ultimate gives the UN46F8000 the best picture quality attainable. Micro-Dimming Ultimate is Samsung’s hardware and software based dimming technology that breaks the display into dimmable “zones” and uses a special algorithm and scanning technology to deliver sharper images and greater contrast. By maximizing the contrast between light and dark areas on-screen Samsung’s Micro-Dimming technology displays an image that is as true-to-life as possible. The technology scans zones across the image and adjusts brightness to deliver deeper dark tones, brighter whites, and eliminate the halo effect and image distortion. Micro-Dimming Ultimate scans two times the number of zones than their lower versions.
Precision Black Local Dimming
Samsung Precision Black Local Dimming gives your LED TV greater contrast and black levels by dimming the LEDs behind darks areas of the picture making blacks darker without affecting brighter elements of the picture.
Ultra Clear Panel
The Ultra Clear Panel naturally enhances the televisions picture quality; colors are more vibrant with deeper darks and excellent shadow detail. The panel absorbs most ambient light and virtually eliminates reflections, allowing you to have an amazing picture in any lighting conditions.

DTS 2.0 + Digital Out
