LG unveils new personal TV line-up
Dubai, June 28, 2012
LG Electronics has unveiled the DM2752 and M2752, a new line-up of premium personal TVs which combines a TV and a monitor in a single unit.
Users can enjoy a range of multimedia entertainment ranging from terrestrial HD broadcasting to any content served up by a PC at Full HD resolution, a statement from the company said.
Both personal TVs feature IPS panels, offering life-like color and extremely wide viewing angles, the statement said.
“With the integration of multimedia entertainment and the internet, LG is at the frontier of cutting-edge TV technology,” said D Y Kim, president of LG Electronics, Gulf. We are developing unique personal TVs designed to meet the needs of changing consumer habits, whether that customer’s passion is 3D gaming, internet browsing or simply watching their favorite sitcom.”
The personal TVs boast picture-in-picture (PIP) capabilities, enabling viewers to open multiple screens simultaneously and watch TV while working on their PC. It also features infinite surround sound for a full-depth surround sound experience.
Two HDMI ports are also included, making it easy to connect game consoles and set-top boxes. In addition, a USB quick view feature eliminates long computer bootup times and enables users to view content such as movies, video clips and pictures quickly and easily, the statement said.
The TVs are equipped with in-plane switching (IPS) panels instead of conventional twisted nematic (TN) panels. IPS boosts color consistency and reduces two colour fluctuations, enabling it to reproduce the most lifelike colors.
Smooth colour change eliminates the blur generated by rapid motion in action scenes, sports or video games resulting in extremely sharp and clear images. Its wide viewing-angle of 178 degrees, allows viewers to enjoy high-quality images without color shift, be it while sitting, standing or lying down. The combination of all these technologies provides a rich, comfortable viewing experience, it said.
With the newest in Cinema 3D technology, the DM2752 premium personal TV offers comfortable 3D viewing with light, flicker-free glasses. It includes an easy-to-use 2D to 3D conversion engine so viewers can watch unlimited high-quality 3D content on the fly.
The 3D effect mode sharpens the converted images to offer a clearer and more immersive 3D experience. The conversion function works with or without a PC and engages automatically for games, delivering the ultimate 3D gaming experience, it said.
Moreover, LG's dual play function enables competing gamers to see two different full screen images at the same time on TV.
LG’s 23/24-inch premium M2382 was recognised as the top choice among all monitors reviewed with TV capability, according to a review conducted by Chip, one of the most widely read computer publications in Germany,
Both TVs will be made available in the GCC soon, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
