    Real Black Pro
    Samsung's Real Black Pro Panel Filter allows for more contrast, bolder colors, and blacker, "inkier" blacks for the best cinematic viewing experience.

    Super Clear Contrast
    The F8500 plasma TV features Samsung's Super Clear Contrast cell structure for improved brightness without affecting black levels. This is achieved by a reduction in the width of the walls that separate the red, green, and blue sub-pixels. The result is contrast and brightness like you've never seen on plasma display.

    Cinema Smooth Plus™
    Cinema Smooth ensures that your programming is seen as the director intended, smooth and natural looking. Many of the movies you watch are filmed at 24fps (frames per second), broadcasting standards for televisions has always been 30 fps; leaving your HDTV with the daunting task of "guessing" 6 frames. The "guess-work" causes judder and other motion related issues. Cinema Smooth "smooths" video content affected by poor processing.
