Immerse into your entertainment with Smart Interaction

Never search for the remote control again or fumble in the dark to push the right button. Use Voice Commands, Motion Control and Face Recognition to control your TV, and other devices without the need of a remote control. Say “Hi TV” in up to 26 languages to see onscreen commands the TV is ready to perform. In fact Smart Interaction technology can also control other devices like cable and satellite set top boxes. Say “Skype” and the TV will scan and interpret your face, with the industry‘s only TV with a built-in camera and log you into your Skype account to make a call. Say “Web Browser” and use hand gestures to scroll and browse the internet as you would on a Smart phone.
Enhance your viewing with a better picture
Experience your entertainment as it was meant to be seen, thanks to great picture quality and image enhancement. Full HD 1080p viewing gives you sharper detail, so you can enjoy your favourite movies and programmes with greater realism than ever before.

Once you've seen the difference, it will change the way you watch TV forever.
