Video Processing
The scaler used takes any specified input resolution, both i and p, up to 1920 x 1080 progressive. 24 Hz input, if provided by a DVD, HD-DVD or
BluRay player, is rate doubled to 48 Hz. This preserves true film motion without the associated flicker. And gives you a viewing experience that
has to be seen to be believed.

Experience the Samsung SP-A800B 1080p
Full HD Home Theater Projector.
A breathtaking viewing experience depends on more than just color and clarity. It’s the details
that make the difference.
Once again, Samsung has pushed the bounds of engineering. Introducing the SP-A800B
1080p Full HD home theater projector. Offering the very latest Samsung picture technologies,
the SP-A800B delivers a premium home theater experience through studio-quality color and
Gamma control. It’s the most image-critical projector in its class. And it’s the home theater
projector for those who demand nothing less than the best performance on the planet.
High 10,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
The Samsung SP-A800B delivers more detailed blacks and whites through a
constantly shifting contrast ratio. The SP-A800B can continually monitor the
video signal and dynamically varies the iris, so blacks don’t plug up and whites
don’t blow out. Dark scenes hold scarier details. Snowmobile chases are more exciting.
24-Frame True Film Mode
Movies are shot at the film speed of 24 frames per second, but are typically displayed at the
video speed of 30 frames per second. Where do those extra six frames per second come
from? They’re interpolated by a technique called 3/2 pulldown. But the SP-A800B offers
24-frame True Film mode, to allow movies to be viewed exactly the way they were filmed.
Extremely Quiet Operating Sound Levels
A soaring musical score. A moving deathbed love scene. Even a simple teen comedy. These can all be ruined by a loud projector. The SP-A800B
operates at a virtually inaudible 24 dBA in Theater mode, and 30dBA in Bright mode. The focus will remain on the movie, where it belongs.
Enhanced HDMI 1.3 Connectivity
Enhanced HDMI 1.3 provides a broader bandwidth, for full support of all existing Dolby and DTS compressed audio formats. The
faster frame rates of up to 120Hz (1080p) and 240Hz (720p/1080i) also deliver the highest sound and picture quality available.
Organic Design
The SP-A800B’s uniquely elegant design tucks discretely out of the way, or adds contemporary styling to any environment. Finished in a
luxurious high-gloss black, the SP-A800B can be either ceiling- or table-mounted.
Easy Set-Up
1920 x 1080
The SP-A800B is ready to go, practically right out of the box. Set-up patterns are built in, for perfectly placed images. A Crosshatch pattern
enables easy focusing and alignment. And a Picture Size pattern controls aspect ratio, overscan and action/live area.
Color Reproduced Exactly the
Way it was Intended
Uncompromising 1080p Full HD Resolution
When Hollywood directors and cinematographers adjust
the colors during the creation of their movies and TV shows,
they scrutinize every scene. They agonize over minute color
shifts. They spend a week or more in front of broadcastgrade CRT monitors that cost upwards of $50,000.
But if you don’t have a $50,000 CRT monitor, how will
you ever get to see the color precisely the way it was
intended? The answer is the Samsung SP-A800B. Not
only is the SP-A800B capable of reproducing broadcaststandard colorimetry, the color gamut can be calibrated to
HD, SMPTE-C and ECU standards, coming to within an
astounding +/- .001 in both x and y coordinates for red,
green and blue.
Distortion-Free Display
Equally as important as the very finest color is the resolution. The SP-A800B
offers the highest HDTV resolution available, 1080p. It’s a true high-definition
picture, for more detailed and more natural-looking car chases, pirate ship
fights and world-threatening cosmic catastrophes.

Whether the SP-A800B is mounted on the ceiling or on a table, the image should be skewand distortion-free. To aid in this, Lens Shift makes it easy to optimize the vertical location
of the image on the screen, while Install Position Shift compensates for mounting position.
What happens when two industry leaders, esteemed for their history of ground-breaking technologies, share points of view?
You get a projector capable of delivering a sensory experience unlike any other. With the SP-A800B, Samsung and Joe Kane
Productions have set the standard in home theater projection excellence.
