Future-ready 3D technology
Samsung PS42A450 Multi systems Plasma tv is the world's first 42" 3D-ready flat-panel TV. We were impressed by Samsung's 3D demo at the Electronics Show. Their approach is one of the first to deliver a truly seamless and believable 3D experience at home. To make it happen, you need an "3D kit" an IR emitter and special viewing glasses. But even if you don't use it today, 3D is the television viewing experience of the future.
Day or night, you'll get a vivid picture
Samsung has boosted picture contrast dramatically, so you can turn your room lights a little lower and still enjoy deep black levels and fine shadow detail. Samsung's powerful image processing delivers eye-catching images with true-to-life colors and natural skin tones. And thanks to the FilterBright anti-glare filter, you won't need to worry about being distracted by screen reflections during mid-afternoon ballgames.
A wealth of connections expands your viewing options
Samsung designed the PS42A450's "jack pack" with high-definition in mind. It includes two component video inputs, plus three HDMI inputs for hooking up HD satellite receivers, cable boxes, and other components that use this digital connection. A PC input and advanced anti-burn-in features let you connect a laptop computer for a larger view during work or play.
