Offer Flexible and Convenient Custom Installation Options
ATLANTA, Sept. 10 -- Offering diverse integration options
for custom installers, LG Electronics is highlighting its first-ever series of
wireless LCD HDTVs, including an LED model, this week at the Custom Electronic
Design & Installation Association (CEDIA) EXPO 2009 (Booth #2623).
Whether it's design, technology or screen size, LG's wireless
HDTVs have something for everyone, according to Peter Reiner, senior vice
president, marketing, LG Electronics USA, Inc. LG's 55-inch class* Slim
Wireless LED-Backlight HDTV (model 55LHX) combines advanced technology with
cutting-edge style for a TV that blends beautifully into any home environment.
For those seeking a variety of design options, LG's LH85 series of wireless LCD
HDTVs will be available in 47- and 55-inch class* sizes.
"As custom installers look to create a truly unique
space, the wireless capability found in the 55LHX and LH85 models allow the
freedom to place the HDTV anywhere in the room," said Reiner. "With
wireless HDTVs, LG continues to expand home entertainment design and placement
options to meet consumers' ever evolving needs."
Both 55LHX and LH85 wireless models allow installers the
freedom to place the HDTV virtually anywhere in the room - without messy wires.
To achieve this wireless experience, LG uses a supplied media box to transmit
an uncompressed Full HD 1080p signal with virtually no interference or delay
directly to the TV. The HDTVs can receive a wireless signal up to 30 feet away,
allowing consumers to hook all content sources (such as a cable or satellite
box, Blu-ray disc player, game console and home theater systems) into one box.
The 55-inch LHX model features superior picture quality with
an elegant ultra-slim design - less than one-inch thick at its thinnest point.
This unit has attained THX Display Certification. This certification ensures
that the 55LHX delivers exceptional images, bringing a more immersive and
enjoyable movie, broadcast and video game experience to consumers' living room.
Since THX certification begins during the initial product design phase, every
product detail is meticulously mapped to THX standards and tested in laboratory
and home theater environments to ensure quality, usability and compatibility.
By presenting HD and standard-definition content at the
maximum resolution with the correct color and luminance level, the LHX provides
consumers a crisper, clearer image. To achieve this, LG uses a full-array LED
backlighting system with local dimming technology, for precise picture control
resulting in deeper blacks, wide color gamut and an incredible 5,000,000:1
dynamic contrast ratio. This model also incorporates TruMotion 240Hz technology
for smooth motion during fast-action scenes.
LG's LH85 series delivers an 80,000:1 contrast ratio for
deeper blacks and greater picture detail. Additionally, the LH85 series
features LG's 24p Real Cinema technology that allows consumers to enjoy a true
cinematic experience at home, the way the movie was intended to be seen. For
those that want more from their HDTV, the LH85 also includes USB 2.0
functionality allowing easy access to MP3 files and viewing of JPEG photos for
a more enjoyable TV viewing experience.
Those seeking advanced calibration based on their own home
theater environment, will appreciate LG's ISFccc option on both the 55LHX and
LH85 series. The professional ISF calibration helps to deliver picture quality,
representing what filmmakers intended viewers to see.
Using the LG Expert Mode, an ISF-certified calibration
technician will use professional equipment to calibrate the HDTV using ISF
parameters based upon individual home theater environments and ambient
lighting. Once calibrated to the optimal setting, the calibrations are saved as
ISF "Day" and ISF "Night" modes. With ISFccc, LG offers a
superior 10-point calibration. This provides an extra level of precision for
gray scale calibration resulting in a more uniform picture.
With Intelligent Sensor, both wireless models automatically
optimize the picture to the lighting conditions in the room for a personalized
and more enjoyable viewing experience; and potential energy savings. Both the
LHX and LH85 series are Energy Star 3.0 compliant, and with LG's "Smart
Energy Saving" package, which consists of features such as backlight
control options and video mute, LG further paves the way toward greater energy
savings, while also allowing consumers to customize their viewing experience.
The 55LHX will be available soon at a manufacturer's
suggested retail price of $4,799 and the LH85 series will be available later
this Fall in 55- and 47-inch class* screen sizes with MSRPs of $3,199 and
