LG Electronics took the wraps off a 55-inch flat-panel model – one SKU from what will be two new Full LED lines of 3D-capable LCD LED TVs carrying the company’s proprietary NANO picture- and brightness-enhancing technology. The sets are to debut officially at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show and screen sizes will range from 47 to 60 inches.
“The benefit of NANO technology is ultimate picture quality and ultimate set thinness without sacrificing one for the other,” said LG’s Tim Alessi, director of new product development, at the showing.
NANO lighting technology, said Alessi, produces a more uniform distribution of light across the panel. The sets also benefit from improved localized dimming in both 2D and 3D modes with LG’s Micro Pixel Control. This year’s sets, said Alessi, are able to douse the brightness in black screen areas all the way to 100 percent versus the 2009 models’ 90 percent, and the screens offer 12 LED packages, each individually addressable for more precise light control.
