The Samsung 6/7/8/9 series high definition digital TV (HDTV) is the next step to the future of TV technology. As well as delivering an excellent visual and audio experience, the Series 6/7/8/9 is also filled with innovative features to connect consumers to online multimedia content.
One of the most innovative features incorporated into the 6/7/8/9 series HDTV is the ability for the user to display up-to-date information on the TV screen, direct from the internet, without having to boot up a PC.
The 6/7/8/9 series HDTV incorporates an ARM11-based chip manufactured by Samsung’s Digital Media division. Samsung have used the ARM processor to connect to the internet and to display streaming web-feeds using an on-screen graphic. News, weather and stock market updates can all be displayed while you are watching TV.
“The ARM processor is used to create a window onto the internet to collect and display up-to-date information on screen. Samsung believes that by starting with “bite-sized” interactive choices, rather than overpowering consumers with too much information, they will conquer aversion to using the TV for surfing and viewing.”
Dr. Donghoon Lee, senior vice president of Samsung Digital Media Division
