The new ES9000 meets the rising market demand for televisions that are 60-inches and larger, and delivers a unique design concept with a beautiful rose-gold coloured finish. As part of the extra-large-screen TV line-up, the introduction of the ES9000, positions Samsung to be the global TV market leader for the seventh consecutive year.

“When consumers enter the premium TV market, they should not have to make any compromises when it comes to quality, functionality, features and sophisticated design,” said Justin Shaw, Business Leader for Visual Display at Samsung SA. “The ES9000 was designed with these high expectations in mind, making it simply beyond comparison.”

Adding to the ES9000’s extra-large-screen size – 75 inches of immersive viewing – are premium design qualities that meet consumers’ varying tastes. The TV set’s unique and timeless design concept includes a super-slim 7.9 millimetre curved bezel with no visible seams, cleanly complementing the TV’s display stand.

Additionally, the TV’s built-in HD camera is hidden within the top of the bezel, rendering it invisible when not in use. Finally, the application of a luxurious rose-gold-coloured finish to the entire body of the set makes it one of the most unique and attractive smart TVs to date.

The ES9000 includes the complete suite of Samsung’s Smart TV features including; Smart Interaction, Smart Content and Smart Evolution that were introduced with Samsung’s flagship Smart TVs earlier this year.

These features enable users to control and interact with their TVs in a more intuitive way, choose from a broader range of premium and signature content that can be shared across multiple devices, and access the latest hardware and software features to constantly receive updates on their Smart TVs.

The ES9000 also includes Sound Share, the newest Smart TV feature, which automatically and wirelessly connects TV audio to Samsung’s Series 6 and Series 7 Wireless Audio with Dock Systems. Furthermore, the ES9000 offers a faster and more seamless Smart TV experience to fit the ultimate lifestyle, through a new dual-core processor that allows consumers to download and use multiple apps while browsing the Web.

The ES9000’s picture quality matches this enhanced Smart TV experience, utilising Samsung’s Micro Dimming Ultimate and Precision Black technology to deliver richer, more optimised colour and detail; higher contrast ratios; a 30% improvement in sharpness and black levels; and a 60% improvement in brightness levels over the ES8000 series – supporting the larger screen size and longer viewing distances.

“Certainly Samsung are a leader in the TV market and this product is yet another way we are demonstrating our innovation, in bringing to market a TV that is highly premium, sophisticated and sets a benchmark for large screen TVs locally,” concludes Shaw.

The Samsung ES9000 is available at selected retailers at recommended retail price of R109 000.
