LG sets milestone in LED technology at IFA 2009

September 3rd, 2009 by LG Blog UK
 

LG has just announced the launch of three new TVs at IFA 2009, offering consumers the widest choice of stylish technology. Whether buyers are looking for a minimalist look such as the SEAMLESS designed SL9000 (Edge LED TV) and SL8000 (Super Slim LCD TV), or state-of-the-art backlight LED technology as featured in the LH9000, LG continues to show that it is at the forefront of TV design and innovation.

The new range of TVs will debut at this year’s IFA 2009 show in Berlin 4 – 9 September [Messe Berlin GmbH. Hall 11.2, stand 101].

Designer TVs to suit everyone – SEAMLESS Edge LED, Full LED & SEAMLESS LCD

The LH9000’s LED backlight technology uses hundreds of LED elements to individually brighten and dim the image that is on the screen – for improved realism, deeper blacks, and a smoother transition between different shades. The backlight helps to create an impressive contrast ratio of 5,000,000:1 and incorporates Picture Wizard technology for viewers to have precise control over the picture they are watching, while TruMotion 200Hz techonology reduces image blur, perfect for watching fast-paced sport and action scenes.

Alternately, the SEAMLESS SL9000 incorporates Edge LED technology – an arrangement of LEDs along the edge of the screen, for thinner, sexier designs.

In terms of design, the SL9000 is ultra slim (under 3cm in depth), ideal for flush wall-mounting. The LH9000 is accentuated with its piano-black, high gloss frame and reflective stand, while the SL9000’s and SL8000’s have a single-layer SEAMLESS  design that sets the panel flush with the surrounding bezel. It has distinctive, gently curved edges with a new high-gloss material that gives it a stunning finish. This anti-glare, HD Ready 1080p (Full HD) screen reduces distracting reflections and enhances the cinema-quality experience.

Designed with playability in mind
All three TVs comprise four HDMI connections to enable users to hook up a wider range of devices such as games consoles, home cinema systems, and set-top boxes. All models are compatible with the latest file formats, which means, that viewing of JPEG, MP3, and DivX HD (movies in HD), is a basic plug and play exercise via the USB 2.0 port. These TVs also have integrated Bluetooth for the times when you don’t want to disturb those around you, and quietly take in the action through a set of compatible Bluetooth headphones. Or alternatively, for streaming music and pictures to the big screen wirelessly.

LG’s Environmental credentials
The new TVs all score highly in terms of their environmental credentials – the LH9000 is one of the most environmentally sound products on the market, thanks to the energy efficiency of LED technology and the TV’s ability to dim or turn off individual elements in the backlight – using up to 75 per cent less power than most similarly sized TVs.

The SL9000 has five distinct energy saving modes and has a 40 per cent power consumption saving when compared to similar-sized LCD TVs.

All models including the SL8000 feature the LG Intelligent Sensor II, which reduces energy consumption by analysing the light in the room and automatically optimises the TVs picture settings. The SL8000 series is also certified by the Energy Saving Trust to save you money off your electricity bills.

George Mead, TV marketing manager, LG UK concludes,

We want LG to be the top name in home entertainment. To make this happen, we have listened closely to our customers and invested heavily in product development. Our latest range of TVs that we have launched at IFA is a testament to our accomplishments and the new standards that we are setting in home entertainment. These TVs look better than any others on the market and the viewing experience and environmental credentials they provide is second to none.
