Samsung electronics unveiled its new 42-inch (HPT4264) plasma HDTV which provide improved picture technology and advanced features for users to enjoy the ultimate home theater centerpiece for broadcast and cinema viewing.

With 16 bit color processing, improvements in contrast result in a wide array of color expressions. The company has also applied silhouette editor, which helps eliminate false contours and dither noise in the fast moving scenes, resulting in a refined face tone and shape. These features help produce rich color tones and create a more realistic picture for users to see.
