While yesterday we reported about Samsung’s new LED TV lineup, looks like the company has lots more in store for multimedia content lovers. Samsung outs eight new ultra-slim Plasma HDTV models for the U.S. The company’s 2010 line-up includes the Plasma HDTV 8000, 7000 and 6500 series.

Among the new series, models in three series range from 50” to 63”. Six of the new TVs interestingly feature 3D allowing users to enjoy a new dimension over the conventional HDTV viewing experience. Though the TVs are optimized for viewing 3D content, they also allow users to render 2D content into 3D in real time thanks to the integrated 3D processor. Sporting a high-efficiency panel that lowers power consumption, the TVs also meet the more stringent Energy Star 4.0 guidelines.

The company additionally intends to elevate the 3D experience with the free 3D Starter Kit. For a limited period, users will receive the free kit along with the purchase of a Samsung 3D HDTV and either the Samsung BD-C6900 3D Blu-ray Player or the HT-C6930W 3D Home Theater System. A 3D version of ‘Monsters vs. Aliens’ and two pairs of Samsung 3D Active Glasses are bundled in this kit.

“Samsung has raised the bar for the plasma TV marketplace by providing exceptional picture quality in a slim and energy efficient package,” commented John Revie, senior vice president of Home Entertainment for Samsung Electronics America. “With our 2010 select models which include 3D capabilities and Web-enabled multimedia access through Samsung Apps, we are delivering on our promise to create products that evolve with the needs and desires of our customers.”

The Samsung Plasma HDTV 8000 series includes the 63” PN63C8000, 58” PN58C8000 and the 50” PN50C8000 models. In a deeper dimension and optimized fabrication, the series comes built-in with 3D technology. A number of innovative features like Real Black Filter and Motion Judder Canceller (MJC) enable the range to deliver superior picture quality. Sporting a slim brushed titanium-colored bezel with hints of Samsung’s signature ToC design, the TVs are equipped with Samsung’s CinemaSmooth technology for playback of 24fps Blu-ray content as well.

Next, the Samsung Plasma HDTV 7000 series, it features the 63” PN63C7000, 58” PN58C7000 and 50” PN50C7000 models. Salient features of the ultra-slim series are well complemented by a slim, brushed black bezel that is fashioned with affordability in mind. Along with a truckload of immersive viewing and picture enhancing technologies, the lineup also features Samsung’s proprietary, built-in 3D processor, Samsung’s Clear Image Panel technology and [email protected] connectivity.

Finally 58” PN58C6500 and 50” PN50C6500 models are offered in the Samsung Plasma HDTV 6500 series. The range is claimed to be the company’s opening price point ultra-slim Plasma HDTV.
