LG To Reveal Passive 3D LW56500 Television At CES
The big news here is that this screen is flicker-free. The flicker that shows in most 3D TVs has been known to give people lots of headaches, so this is definitely good news for those who are affected by that. The reason is that this screen uses a different technology than most. Rather than being an active set, which has most of the technology in the glasses, this is a passive set. The 3D glasses need no electric parts and are free of electromagnetic waves and never need to be recharged. The glasses do not need to be synchronized so viewers can watch the LW6500’s screen from any angle. And because the glasses are far less expensive than shutter glasses, viewers can buy as many pairs as they need for family and friends. The glasses will end up being similar to the RealD kind you find at IMAX cinemas and just toss back in the box after use.
The LW6500 also improves picture quality with 3D Light Boost, a thin film covering the screen that ensures 3D images are shown at maximum brightness. Furthermore, it has LG's Smart TV lineup, providing internet access and support for YouTube, Hulu Plus, etc. LG is not mentioned a price or release date yet, but it should be out soon following the conclusion of the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show.
LG BRINGS 3D THEATER TO CES 2011 WITH CINEMA 3D TV
(SEOUL=Korea Newswire) December 29, 2010 -- At the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, LG Electronics (LG) will unveil the LW6500, a CINEMA 3DTM TV designed to take 3D TV to new heights of brightness and clarity.
The LW6500’s outstanding 3D picture begins with LG’s proprietary Film-type Patterned Retarder (FPR) panel, which optimizes the separation of images for the left and right eyes. The images are then filtered through specially designed glasses to give viewers truly crisp, blur-free images that leap off the screen.
“With the introduction of our innovative CINEMA 3DTM TV, LG is setting another standard for 3D entertainment,” said Havis Kwon, President and CEO of LG Home Entertainment Company. “For consumers who want to enjoy cinema-quality 3D at home with their family and friends, LG is now making that possible.”
Because LG’s CINEMA 3DTM technology does not require shutter glasses, images displayed on the LW6500 are entirely free of flicker. This innovation resulted in the LW6500 receiving a “Flicker Free” certification from Intertek and TÜV, two of the most respected inspection and certification bodies in the world. The LW6500 is the first 3D TV in the world to receive this designation.
The LW6500’s flicker-free images make 3D viewing more comfortable and far less likely to induce eye fatigue. Tipping the scales at just 16 grams, the included 3D glasses have no electrical parts and are free of electromagnetic waves and never need to be recharged. The glasses do not need to be synchronized so viewers can watch the LW6500’s screen from any angle. And because the glasses are far less expensive than shutter glasses, viewers can buy as many pairs as they need for family and friends.
The LW6500 also improves picture quality with 3D Light Boost, a thin film covering the screen that ensures 3D images are shown at maximum brightness. The LW6500 boasts all the advantages of LG’s Smart TV technology including access to LG Apps and a range of premium content via HuluPlusTM, YouTubeTM and many others.
The LW6500 will be rolled-out in select markets soon after its introduction at CES.
