An outstanding 3D Experience
Whether you're watching in 2D or 3D, Samsung Full HD 1080p displays picture quality that's crisp, clear, and breathtakingly life-like. It's almost as close as you can get to the real thing. The Ultra Clear Panel on the ES8000 series gives the image deep, dark blacks while the advanced dimming technology delivers detailed contrast. Put on the 3D glasses to immerse yourself in the picture. Samsung's 3D glasses use Active shutter technology that delivers an outstanding 3D experience (when coupled with a 3D source such as a Samsung 3D Blu-ray player). You can also convert 2D viewing to 3D, so you can watch sports, TV shows, and all your favourite programming in immersive 3D.
NOW Like all 2012 Samsung 3D-capable TVs, Samsung's ES8000 Series comes with two pairs of active 3D glasses that makes it easy to experience the incredible depth of 3D. What's more, you can experience 3D immediately through Samsung's Explore3D Video on Demand service. Simply download the app from the Smart TVs Apps store and enjoy a wide range of 3D content from full-length documentaries, kids programs and music concerts*.

Ultra Clear Panel
Sometimes you can't keep sunlight or house lights from shining right on your TV screen. With Samsung's Ultra Clear Panel on the ES8000 series, you can still get an amazing picture even in bright environments. Ultra Clear Panel is designed to absorb ambient light making colours vibrant while delivering deep blacks.
Micro-Dimming technology for amazing contrast
Samsung's Micro Dimming technology displays a picture that is virtually true-to-life by maximizing the contrast between lights and darks.

The result is a crystal-clear picture with realistic, vivid detail and accurate colour reproduction.
The ES8000 series Smart TVs feature Samsung's proprietary Dual Core processor that provides performance improvements compared to a Samsung Smart TV without a Dual Core processor when browsing the web*, downloading apps* and allows multiple tasks to be performed at the same time, such as using an app while downloading another one.
