You’ll be blown away by the picture quality output from your Samsung BD-H8500M Smart 3D Blu-ray Player. It can upscale SD content to near Full HD quality, and plays back 3D Blu-rays for a more immersive viewing experience.

Enjoy incredibly realistic image quality that’s sharp, vibrant and colourful enough to rival even cinematic productions. You’ll feel closer to the stars with rich detail and amazing depth that really makes your movies and programmes appear to leap off the screen.

The 3D Auto Contrast technology allows for crisper images with even more dramatic contrast, employing advanced algorithms to reduce the number of image layers and improve response speed so that everything onscreen moves more fluidly and appears even clearer.
