LG launches widest OLED TV
Amman, May 22, 2010
LG Electronics (LG), a major player in the global flat panel display and audio-video devices market, has launched the widest OLED (organic light emitting diode) TV yet released onto the market.
With no external sources of light influencing its output, the EL9500’s 15-inch screen can deliver perfect levels of black and a picture with up to 1.5 times greater perceived luminance than on a regular LCD TV.
Using state-of-the-art OLED technology, the 3.2 mm deep EL9500 dispenses with the backlights used on conventional LCD models in favour of a film of pixels that actually produce their own light.
In addition, OLED technology ensures an even faster video refresh rate, a feature that, working in conjunction with 100Hz Live Scan, renders more dynamic pictures and all but eliminates blur from even the fastest sequences, a statement said.
Accompanying the EL9500 is LG’s signature invisible speakers, which pump out sound sculpted by the Clear Voice II and SRS Trusurround XT technologies, for a an immersive soundtrack, the statement added.
“We have always paid extremely close attention to what our customers want, and based on those insights, we believe the time is perfect for the release of the EL9500,” Kevin Cha, managing director of LG Electronics Levant.
“Not only does the EL9500 take picture quality to new heights, it does so in a set that is one of the lightest and most adaptable LG has ever produced, making it possible to watch the TV almost anywhere.”
The EL9500 uses less electricity than standard LCD sets and is entirely free of lead and mercury, and generates far less e-waste than a regular-sized TV, the statement said.
In addition, a SimpLink HDMI interface lets consumers transmit content from other media devices right to their TV, according to the statement. – TradeArabia News Service
