Samsung TV technology

Does anyone know the name of the technology that I think Samsung TVs have? It's the technology that when watching like a movie for example it looks like a homemade video or something live.

Re: Samsung TV technology

You may be referring to some sort of frame interpolation, but I am not sure. What do you mean by "it looks like a homemade video or something live"? Higher frame rate than film? If so, this is not unique to Samsung. Virtually every manufacturer has some form of this.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

Hard to describe. It is like when you watch a movie it looks like watching football on tv but almost animated like.

Re: Samsung TV technology

I am curious.. Why would manufacturers want to have everything turned on so that we end users have this so called "soap opera effect" and if we don't like it have to manually turn everything off? Do they think this view is what we want when we watch things? Also what is the advantage of "soap opera effect"?

Thanks for the replies. Yes I think it is the soap opera effect. One day we saw a movie at a friends house and the film looked unreal. Took away the film look. I ask myself the same question. What is the purpose of removing the true film look like the director intended? Even my wife hates that technology.
