LG – bringing the Cinema 3D experience to the home

April 26th, 2011 by LG Blog UK

If you are looking for the ideal 3D experience for the home then our recently released Cinema 3D range could be just what you are looking for!

With the launch world’s first LED Cinema 3D range we are offering customers a more comfortable and inclusive way to watch 3D in the home. Thanks to our patented FPR film we have the world’s first certified flicker free screens, earning the certificate from Intertek and TUV, two of the most respected inspection and certification bodies in the world, making it the first 3DTV to receive this designation. Combine this with less cross-talk in comparison to the standard active 3D screen and you have a more comfortable 3D experience, even for all 2 hours and 40 minutes of Avatar in 3D!

Comfort is a big factor for those looking to enjoy 3D in the home and our passive system benefits from the lightweight glasses as used in the cinema, weighing in at around half the weight of active shutter glasses.

Another advantage of our Cinema 3D glasses over active shutter glasses is the price point – with active shutter glasses costing around £100 a pair in comparison to the Cinema 3D glasses that start at around £2 a pair. With 7 pairs in the box, Cinema 3D is the ideal 3D experience to share with family and friends without having to remortgage your house for extra sets of glasses. Cinema 3D also has a wider viewing angle in comparison to active 3D due to the glasses not having to “sync” with the TV, making it easier to get friends and family around to enjoy 3D.

The range is available in sizes between 32” and 55” and all come equipped with LG’s Smart TV technology allowing access to a web browser, catch up TV, hundreds of customisable apps, rental and subscription services including Acetrax and VIEWSTER, music services and radio channels and even social networking to keep on top of Twitter and Facebook without having to turn on your computer.

To make this service that much easier to use LG have also launched the Magic Motion Remote Control, a wi-fi motion sensitive remote allowing for easy point and click navigation.

Throw in the fact that we also use side-by-side frame format as Sky and it is no surprise why we are Sky’s first choice for 3D TVs, bringing the best content from Sky’s own dedicated 3D channel into the home. Currently Sky subscribers can get up to £400 cash back on an LG 3DTV! More details are available here –

April 20th, 2011 by LG Blog UK

This beat the 25% who said that they would be tempted to switch...

James Cameron sees the Future in 3D

April 19th, 2011 by LG Blog UK
To call James Cameron one of the pioneering directors of all time would be an understatement. He redefined the genres of sci-fi and horror with Terminator and Aliens and is the man behind the two highest grossing films of all time, Titanic and Avatar. It was with Avatar that Cameron decided to utilize the previously under-used power of 3D to tell the story of a clash between resource hungry humans and blue aliens on the far off planet of Pandora. Avatar redefined 3D technology and showed the world that 3D was here and here to stay.  In fact Cameron is a...

Our guide to the LG Home

April 11th, 2011 by LG Blog UK
I recently introduced the LG Home event that took place early last week in a rather decadent townhouse just off Tottenham Court Road in Central London. The idea behind the event was to stage an event where journalists and bloggers could come along and have a look at LG’s new range of Home Entertainment products as they would be set up ideally in the home. There was a number of the LG team on hand to conduct tours around the home and to answer any questions that visitors may have. I was lucky enough to make it to the house twice...
