CES 2012 LG’s HDTV Line
LG comes to Las Vegas with the most innovative and advanced HDTV models they ever produced. New technology offered in its 2012 model line includes the first large screen OLED HDTV, the first 84″ HDTV with 4K resolution and more.
All of LGs Internet connected Smart TVs have browsers and play flash and HDML5 content. All 1080p models use wide viewing angle in 2D IPS panels except the 65″ versions. The 3D models below the 6200 series come with four pair of 3D glasses while the models series above come with six pairs.
The LG 55EM9600 is the industry’s first announced 55-Inch Full HDTV. Just 4mm thin the EM9600 features Full HD 2D resolution and LG’s film pattern retarder 3D technology. This organic light emitting diode (OLED) TV uses a panel made up of over 8 million white led sub-pixels. On top of the panel is a filter with four sections- red, blue, green and clear (white). LG claims this design offers higher effiiciency and righer color. The panel is too thin for speakers, inputs or associated electronics. They are housed within a separate box sold with the TV. We will provide more information as it becomes available after the show opens.
