CES 2012: LG OLED TV Is 4mm Thick
USA Today reported from CES 2012 that LG Electronics has unveiled a new skinny 55-inch Organic LED TV. The set is thin. That’s an understatement. The set is 4mm thick. It weighs 16.5 pounds. Did I mention it’s a 55-inch set? And does 3D?
From LG’s press release:
“What sets LG’s TV picture apart from other OLED TVs is its 4-Color Pixels and Color Refiner which work together to generate natural and accurate colors that are sharp and consistent. The 4-Color Pixels feature allows for more accurate color depiction by using a set of four colors (red, green blue and white) in comparison to the RGB setup used by conventional OLED TVs. Color Refiner helps provide consistency in colors from a wider viewing angle via an LG algorithm which improves and refines hues and tones.
Boasting an infinite contrast ratio, LG’s OLED TV exhibits vivid colors and the smallest details. In turn, colors and details throughout an entire image are preserved with utmost clarity and sharpness, even when displaying scenes with dark lighting. Such color capabilities are technically impossible with LED and LCD display panels. And at around 1,000 times faster than LED/LCD displays, LG’s OLED TV are capable of showing crystal clear motion.
LG’s 3D OLED TV is equipped with LG’s Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) CINEMA 3D technology, providing users with a comfortable 3D experience. And FPR-type 3D glasses are less expensive and lighter than active shutter 3D glasses. They also don’t need batteries or to be recharged.”
