Reasons For

6 Reasons For
60Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Panasonic TX-50CX680 has a motion interpolation frequency of 200Hz, but the Samsung UE50JU6800 is only a 140Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (60Hz slower). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

Thinner Edit
