The HL-T7288S HDTV turns your home into a
movie theater, with a huge 72" screen – Samsung’s
largest DLP ® – and Full HD (1920 x 1080p)
resolution. An ultra-thin, piano-black bezel lets
you enjoy more screen and less frame; combined
with its slim depth, light weight and hidden
speaker system, it fits where others won’t™.
Samsung’s Cinema Smooth™ light engine

a 10,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio renders every
picture in perfect detail, from the darkest darks to
brightest whites, and every tone in between. SRS
TruSurround XT™ delivers sound that is clear and
full. Three HDMI inputs in version 1.3 render your
digital movies, photos and more with greater
color depth. CEC capability allows you to control
other peripherals using one remote; the set can
also interface with other devices via Bluetooth™
technology. Game Mode optimizes performance,
so avid gamers will marvel at the lifelike color and
sound; fast, 120Hz switching makes it ready for
3D and other future technologies. And even with
all these advanced features, the HL-T7288W is

Cinema Smooth™ Light Engine
Samsung is the worldwide leader in creating light engines that harness Digital Light Processing technology. Samsung’s Cinema
Smooth light engine brings together the right optics, electronic circuitry and replaceable light source to create a brilliant picture
that’s more lifelike and much closer to film. Now in its sixth generation, Samsung’s Cinema Smooth light engine delivers crisp,
1080p High Definition resolution with high contrast and brightness, defined edges and sharp detail.
Cinema Smooth 1080p Light Engine
Samsung’s Cinema Smooth 1080p light engine is the culmination of years of industryleading research and development. It releases the maximum power of the new generation
of DMD microdisplays for the most film-like picture. It creates an image with no visible pixel
structure and accurate shading and better low-light detail.
Next Generation DLP Chips from Texas Instruments
Samsung employs a Texas Instruments DLP chip that is comprised of millions of microscopic
mirrors. The DLP chip is faster than any other HDTV technology, with the mirrors switching
on & off 15,000 times a second to deliver a razor-sharp picture for fast moving images.
When combined with Samsung’s new Cinema Smooth light engine, the result is a crisp,
bright picture with deep, rich colors that’s closer to film.
Faster 5 Segment Color Wheel
for High Contrast and Brightness
Samsung’s 2.2” color wheel spins at 14,400 rpm for smooth fast-motion video, and has
five color segments for more accurate colors. Comprised of five colors, Red, Green, and
Blue, plus Cyan and Yellow, it achieves film-like transitions and eliminates the pixel breakup
found in slower color wheel designs and slower-switching LCD microdisplays. The Cinema
Smooth™ light engine uses a whisper quiet air bearing design.
Samsung’s DNIe™ – Digital Natural Image Engine
Samsung’s exclusive Digital Natural Image engine makes the sharpest and clearest images
possible, regardless of the profile of input signals. Five image processors and a six-times
density enhancer ensure the best picture from any source. Now in its sixth generation
(since 2002), DNIe guarantees the truest colors and highest contrast, while virtually eliminating
digital artifacts.
