Samsung shows off 2007 AV range

Samsung's 'Art of Experience' roadshow promotes its design and 1080p capabilities.

Many manufacturers embark on annual road shows around Australia to promote their product ranges to retailers, their sales staff and the media. It's a way to drum up excitement about new products they're planning to bring into this country in the coming months.

CNET.com.au toured Samsung's 2007 AV road show, which was themed the "Art of Experience". The company wants to impress with the smart (mostly piano black) styling of its AV products, so it set the exhibition up to resemble an art gallery.

Watch the video to see Samsung's John Fragiadakis introduce some of the more interesting new offerings, including the M8 Series of 1080p LCD TVs, upscaling DVD players and a pretty cool Auto Mount system for adjusting wall-mounted big screens through the remote control.
