REVIEW: Samsung LE-32A656A1F Part 13
Scene from the film "Last Samurai" (2.40:1 Cinemascope format, PAL), played back on PlayStation 3 via HDMI.
Scene from the anime "Origin – Spirits of the Past" (16:9 format, PAL), played back on PlayStation 3 via Component.
The Samsung LE-32A656F1 supports the following video formats:
In terms of image frequencies, the 32-inch model is rather flexible and supports 24Hz, 48Hz, 50Hz and 60Hz. Image playback with 100 or even 120Hz does not exist on the LE-32A656A1F. 100Hz playback, which is referred to as "100 Hz Motion Plus" by Samsung, is only present in models from 37 inches in the A65 series.
However, there is also inter-frame calculation on the LE-32A656A1F with "Movie Plus". The difference between this and 100 Hz technology is that Movie Plus is only designed for film material, whilst 100 Hz technology is more flexible. With inter-frame calculation, display of moving pictures is better in some places, at times, unpleasant effects can arise, e.g. artefacts.
Scene from the film "Equilibrium" (2.35:1 Cinemascope format, PAL), played back on Philips DVP5980 via HDMI.
Scene from CGI short animation "Titan A.E." (2.35:1 Cinemascope format, PAL), played back on Philips DVP5980 via SCART.
An important point for a FullHD television is that it should support 24p mode. The LE-32A656A1F offers this important feature, which is referred to as "1080 24p Real Movie" by Samsung. In 24p, 24 full frames per second are played back.
