Samsung Rumored To Show 480Hz HDTV at IFA

Technology is constantly evolving, and nowhere is that more evident than in HDTVs.

According to German based FlatpanelsHD, Samsung will be showing off a new television that will eclipse former offerings by utilizing a 480Hz refresh rate.

With the recent cap at 200/240Hz – 200 for Europe and 240 in the US – the new model would double the rate of models still fresh on the market. The displays are also said to use BFI/DFI, or Black Frame Insertion/Dark Frame Insertion. With BFI/DFI, a black or dark frame is inserted between original frames, helping to eliminate the human eye’s propensity for image retention.

Berlin hosts the IFA consumer electronics expo this September, and new products are to be expected, but as of this moment the new Samsung 480HZ displays are yet to be confirmed.
