"" This function is only supported for S9 series models.
Precautions for Voice Recognition and Motion Control
Using the TV camera
●● Under some circumstances and under certain legal conditions, the use/misuse of the TV camera
may result in illegal actions. There may be obligations under local privacy laws regarding the
protection of individuals concerning personal data and on the free movement of such data, and
possibly other laws including criminal laws regulating camera surveillance both in the workplace
and elsewhere.
●● By using the TV camera, users agree that it will not be used (i) in locations where cameras are
generally prohibited (such as bathrooms, locker rooms or changing rooms), (ii) in any manner
that will result in an invasion of a person’s privacy, or (iii) in violation of any applicable laws,
regulations or statutes.
●● When you are no longer using the camera, keep it retracted inside the TV. This prevents any
inadvertent or unintentional camera operation.
Motion Control
●● Motion Control is worked through the camera connected to the TV. For Motion Control to work,
you must be within the camera's recognition range. The camera's recognition range differ with
the ambient light level and other factors.
●● Run the Motion Control Environment Test before using Motion Control to determine the
camera's recognition range.
●● You may experience physical fatigue when using Motion Control for extended periods.
Voice Recognition
●● Voice Recognition is not available in all languages, dialects, or regions. The performance differs
with the language chosen, voice volume, and ambient noise levels in the surrounding area.
●● Voice Text Input requires that you agree to any third-party app’s voice privacy policy.
●● Voice Text Input lets you enter text using voice commands instead of a mouse, keyboard, or
remote control. This feature is particularly useful for searching, browsing the web, and using
applications.
●● You must agree to the following privacy notices before using Interactive Voice Recognition:
–– Voice Recognition Privacy Notice, Nuance Privacy Notice
Requirements for using Voice Recognition, or Motion Control
Requirements for using voice recognition
●● The voice recognition rate differs with the volume/tone, pronunciation, and ambient sound
environment (TV sound and ambient noise).
●● Say the command 1.2m to 1.8m from the microphone on the Samsung Smart Control. The
optimal volume for voice commands is between 75 dB and 80 dB.
Requirements for using motion recognition
●● Be sure to use Motion Control within recommended distances:
–– TV Camera (Built-in): between 1.5m and 3.5m
–– TV Camera (Sold Separately): between 1.5m and 4m
●● The actual recognition range may differ with the camera angle and other factors.
●● You must be located within a range of camera lens, because Motion Control relies on the TV's
built-in camera. Adjust the camera's angle using the wheel on the back of the camera. Do not
point the camera directly at the sun or any other light source or obstruct its view.
●● For the camera to recognise movement, you must stand out from the background.
●● The appropriate ambient brightness is 50 to 500 lux. (100 Lux: Bathroom, 400 Lux: Living Room)
●● Avoid direct sunlight when using Motion Control.
●● Run the Motion Control Environment Test to assess the camera's recognition range before using
Motion Control.

Installing an anti-theft lock
●● An anti-theft lock is a physical device that can be used to protect the TV against theft. Look for
the lock slot on the back of the TV. The slot has a icon next to it. To use the lock, wrap the
lock cable around an object that is too heavy to carry and then thread it through the TV's lock
slot. The lock is sold separately.
●● The method of using an anti-theft lock may differ for each TV model. Refer to the lock's user
manual for more information.
"" This function is only available on certain models in specific geographical areas.
Read before setting up a wireless Internet connection
Precautions for wireless Internet
●● This TV supports the IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n communication protocols. Samsung recommends using
IEEE 802.11n. Video files stored on a device connected to the TV via Home Network may not play
back smoothly.
●● To use wireless Internet, the TV must be connected to a wireless router or modem. If the wireless
router supports DHCP, the TV can use a DHCP or static IP address to connect to the wireless
network.
●● Select a channel that is not currently in use for the wireless router. If the channel set for the
wireless router is currently being used by another device, the result is usually interference and/or
a communications failure.
●● Most wireless networks have an optional security system. To enable a wireless network's security
system, you need to create a password using characters and numbers. This password is then
needed to connect to a security-enabled AP.
Wireless security protocols
●● The TV only supports the following wireless network security protocols.
–– Authentication Modes: WEP, WPAPSK, WPA2PSK
–– Encryption Types: WEP, TKIP, AES
●● In compliance with the newest Wi-Fi certification specifications, Samsung TVs do not support
WEP or TKIP security encryption in networks running in the 802.11n mode.
●● If the wireless router supports WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), you can connect the TV to your
network using PBC (Push Button Configuration) or a PIN (Personal Identification Number). WPS
automatically configures the SSID and WPA key settings.
●● The TV cannot connect to non-certified wireless routers.
Read Before Connecting a Computer (Supported
Resolutions)
●● When you connect your TV to a computer, set the computer's video card to one of the standard
resolutions listed in the tables below or on the next page. The TV will automatically adjust to the
resolution you choose. Note that the optimal and recommended resolution is 1920 x 1080 at 60
Hz.
●● Choosing a resolution not included in the tables can result in a blank screen or just the power
indicator turning on.
●● Refer to the user manual of your graphics card for compatible resolutions.

Glossary
●● 480i / 480p / 720p / 1080i / 1080p
Generally refers to the number of effective scanning lines that determines the screen's resolution.
There are two scanning methods: interlaced and progressive.
–– Scanning
Sequential projection of pixels to form images. The higher the number of pixels, the clearer
and more vivid the images.
–– Progressive
A sequential scanning method that scans every line, one after another.
–– Interlaced
A staggered scanning method that scans every other line until the end of the screen and then
fills in the remaining lines.
Example) If the number of horizontal scan lines is 480i
Scans 240 lines from start to finish and then scans the remaining 240 lines for a total of 480
lines.
* General differences between 480i and 480p are as follows:

●● ARC (Audio Return Channel)
ARC lets the TV output digital sound to an audio device and input digital sound from the same
audio device through one HDMI cable. However, ARC is only available through the HDMI (ARC)
port and only when the TV is connected to an ARC-enabled AV receiver.
●● DVI (Digital Visual Interface)
Connecting the TV's DVI connector to a computer's DVI connector via an HDMI-to-DVI cable
lets you use the TV as a computer monitor. However, HDMI-to-DVI cables deliver video signals
only. You must connect a set of speakers to the computer using a separate cable to hear the
computer's audio.
●● HDMI (High Definition Multimedia Interface)
HDMI is a method of transmitting both video and audio signals via a single cable.
●● Dynamic versus Static IP Addresses
If the network requires a dynamic IP address, use an ADSL modem or router that supports
the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). Modems and routers that support DHCP
automatically provide the IP address, subnet mask, gateway and DNS values the TV needs to
access the Internet, so they do not have to be entered manually. Most home networks use a
dynamic IP address.
If the network requires a static IP address, enter the IP address, subnet mask, gateway, and DNS
values manually when setting up the network connection. To get the IP address, subnet mask,
gateway and DNS values, contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
If the network requires a static IP address, use an ADSL modem that supports DHCP. ADSL
modems that support DHCP also allow static IP addresses.
●● Bluetooth
Bluetooth is a short-distance wireless communication protocol allowing information exchange
between connected mobile phones, laptops, earphones and headphones with Bluetoothcompatible devices. It is mostly used for low-power consuming wireless connections within a
very short-distance of 10m.
●● Ethernet
Ethernet is a LAN (Local Area Network) that uses coaxial cables standardised by the IEEE.
●● Component Connection
Component connections are mostly used for game consoles and transmit the video signal by
splitting it into a luminance signal (Y) and two colour signals (Pb and Pr). The connector is
marked as [Component IN]_(Pr, Pb, Y) on the back of the TV. On some devices, it is sometimes
marked as Cr, Cb, Y. Cb and Cr are the digital conversions of the Pb and Pr signals.
The connectors are normally colour-coded red (R), blue (B), and green (G) and offer the best
picture quality possible for an analogue connection.
