The 52″ version has the model name LN52A750R1F. Samsung Korea is calling this series simply Bordeaux 750. The company is also stating that this is a new kind of TV and is putting the stamp on these as TV 2.0. Why TV 2.0? Samsung has teamed up with Naver and YouTube so the user can directly access these two portals by connecting the Bordeaux 750 LCD TVs to the Internet via the Ethernet connection. BTW, Naver is the major Internet portal site in South Korea.

The Bordeaux 750 series uses DNIe Pro. Digital Natural Image engine (DNIe) is a Samsung developed algorithm to analyze video signals and convert it to an optimal output signal to improve picture quality. The Pro version improves upon the original design. How? I don’t know. I am guessing the Speed Backlight has something to do with LED backlights that progressively scans to reduce motion blur. The Crystal Black Panel would probably use the same LED backlight and apply local dimming to improve the contrast ratio a great deal. Local dimming would allow dark areas to become really dark by dimming the LEDs in those areas. Wide Color Control Pro would suggest that somehow the Bordeaux 750 series is applying some wide color gamut technology. The only way to do this with a LED backlight is to use RGB LEDs but I am not sure if that is the case.
