LG 55LX9500


A Full HD LED and 3D

The LG TV producer wants to conquer the 3D TV market with a new great luxury gadget endowed with full LED technology.

The last football World Cup in South Africa was the signal for the early era of 3D TV. It was rather strange that only a few games were filmed and broadcast in 3D television format. The manufacturers have decided: the World Cup was the ideal marketing catalyst for embedding 3D screens in private homes. And LG was the first of the producers to come with a great luxury TV, showcasing its expertise in this area.

Latest technologies included in this TV from LG

LG-55lx9500The new LX9500 TV offers a diagonal of 140 cm (55 inches) and its native resolution is obviously an Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixels. LG doesn’t say which are the dimensions of the TV, but the display is very thin, with LED backlight technology included. However, the LED full display is included, too. That involves placing a large number of LEDs on the surface of the display, not just on edges (LED Edge) as it is the case with the usual LED TV’s. As a result, LG promises a dynamic contrast ratio huge with about 1,000: 10,000. The response time of the display is about 2 ms with a frequency of 400 Hz for display and TruMotion technology included, as well. It includes, obviously, the LG image processing called XD Engine, which will offer a wide variety of settings and editing presets in real time.

However, the producer LG has pushed forward its special 3D technology force. This TV comes with two pairs of active glasses that will make to see 3D images. The lenses of these glasses are active as they alternatively open and synchronize with the two images successively displayed by the television. All this things are able to create the impression of the most realistic and enjoyable 3D images compared with technologies currently available. Another feature is represented by the three HDMI 1.4 ports able to ensure the compatibility with all new standards for 3D TV’s.

A TV easy to connect

This TV is at the same time a board media player online, able to work and command the devices connected to its two USB ports. It can handle the formats JPEG, MP3, and VOB, TS, TRP, TP, DIV, DAT, MPG, MP4, AVI and MKV for video.
