Organization is the key when building an easy to use and simplistic interface. The Smart Hub of the Samsung F8000 now includes 5 panels organized by: On TV, Movies and TV Shows, Social, Apps, and an additional panel for your Videos, Photos, and Music.
With S-Recommendation your LED will respond to your voice and find a selection of customized content options based on your preference.

Use everyday language and casual gestures to find content or command and control the TV.
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 UN60F8000. When you’re ready to use the camera, it will pop out by applying slight pressure, essentially push-to-release.

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; the UN60F8000 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 is Samsung’s hardware and software based dimming technology that breaks your screen into separate dimmable zones and uses a special scanning technology and algorithm to deliver greater contrast and sharper images. Micro-Dimming Ultimate scans twice the number of zones than their lower versions. The technology scans the zones across the screen and adjusts brightness to deliver brighter whites, deeper dark tones, and eliminate the halo effect and image distortion on your LED to give you the best picture quality attainable. Samsung’s Micro-Dimming technology displays an image that is as life-like as possible with brilliant contrast.
