The latest entry in the LCD 650 Series TVs will deliver Auto Motion Plus™ 120Hz refresh rate, fast 4ms response time for motion clarity and high dynamic contrast ratios for deeper, more natural blacks.

Enhanced Picture Quality

The newest member of the LCD 650 Series TV family will utilize Samsung’s proprietary Auto Motion Plus™ 120Hz frame-interpolation technology, partnered with a quick 4ms response time, to reduce blurring caused by fast movement shown onscreen. Advanced users can also customize how Auto Motion Plus handles judder and motion blur to suit their taste. The LN65B650’s Ultra Clear Panel technology creates a vibrant picture by enhancing colors and reducing glare, even in rooms with a lot of ambient light. The Wide Color Enhancer 3 ensures accurate reproduction of colors with shows, movies, games and more, regardless of the viewing environment.

Connectivity and Content

The 2009 LCD 650 Series TVs (40-inch class and larger) come equipped with the new Samsung [email protected] suite of multimedia features. Ready for both wired and wireless connectivity, the LCD 650 Series TVs offer access to a breadth of content via the [email protected] - Content Service, built-in Content Library, DLNA and USB 2.0 ports to play movies and more. [email protected] delivers access to Internet content from Yahoo!, Flickr, YouTube, and more while watching TV via easy-to-use TV widgets. The smart, user-friendly USB 2.0 interface makes it easy to share and view media files on your TV from a digital camera, MP3 player, or even a thumb drive.

A New Touch of Color™

The LN65B650 further distinguishes itself with a Touch of Color, or ToC™, design, which is produced through a dual-injection molding process that luxuriously coats a translucent surface over the frame for a premium look. The 65” includes a two-tone gradation of a stylish gray tone color along the curve of the bottom edge, with transparent color finishing along the bezel’s outer edges.

Energy Friendly In Any Home

As with all of Samsung’s LCD 650 Series TVs, the LN65B650 features low power consumption, meeting Energy Star® v3.0 efficiency guidelines and saving energy and money for the consumer. Additionally, the dual-injection process used to create the unique ToC bezel design is done so without the need for sprays, paints or dyes, which typically release Volatile Organic Chemicals (VOCs).

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
