Visitor: all this online retailers show that it's 60hz
Ruben: Thank you for confirming.
Ruben: The clear motion rate for this TV is 120 HZ.
Ruben: Is there anything else that I can assist you with?
Visitor: then all the retailers are selling it as 60hz
Visitor: why is that?
Visitor: are they all wrong....or samsung website is wrong?
Ruben: I am sorry; but we see that this TV model has clear motion rate as 120HZ.
Visitor: is clear motion rate is different than refresh rate?
Visitor: what is the refresh rate on this TV?
Ruben: The clear motion and the refresh rate are the same.
Visitor: I am finding this info on the google
Visitor: A refresh rate is how many times per second the image can change on the screen. A higher refresh rate basically means that when the scene moves fast, you will see less motion blur. The Clear Motion Rate metric was invented by Samsung (some says only for a marketing gimmick), to represent better the clarity of movement. The refresh rate alone isn't sufficient to represent the motion blur, so on top of it they added the image processor rate as well as the backlight speed. While it is true that the refresh rate alone isn't sufficient to qualify motion blur, Samsung is often misleading because it will sometimes only display the CMR instead of the real refresh rate of the panel. This makes it a lot more confusing when comparing TVs across brand, where you better compare the real refresh rate. A 120Hz CMR is not equal to 120Hz of refresh rate. A 120Hz CMR will most probably have a 60Hz panel. Which means that if you compare a TV that has a 120Hz of real refresh rate vs a 120Hz CMR, the real 120Hz is most likely better.
Visitor: it says it was CMR term was invented by Samsung so 120Hz CMR is not equal to 120Hz Refresh reate
Ruben: Samsung also creates the new motion clarity standard based on the Clear Motion Rate (CMR) instead of the traditional “refresh rate” to compensate for the inaccuracy of measuring the resolution in a moving scene. CMR is determined by three factors, including the TV panel, video processing and backlight technology. Comparing to the refresh rate, CMR can truly reflect the ability of processing the pictures in motion and accurately measure the resolution in a moving scene. For example, LED TV Series 6900 features 400 CMR, which is equivalent to 400 frames per second (fps), which produces smoother images.
Visitor: ok...so what is the industry standard refresh rate on this TV?
