LG Electronics will bring the future of home entertainment to the 2012 International CES as the company unveils its revolutionary 55-inch class (54.6-inch diagonal) OLED HDTV. It is designed to recreate reality with perfection, using the Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) display technology powered by LG’s TRIPLE XD Engine.
“The OLED TV is the ultimate display device, a culmination of the sophisticated technological advances made by LG,” said James Fishler, senior vice president, marketing and go-to-market operations, LG Electronics USA. “This next-generation display will further strengthen LG’s position as a true leader and trend-setter of the home entertainment industry. It is the TV of dreams.”
Whether in 2D or 3D, LG’s 55-inch (55EM9600) OLED TV is designed to display flawless, life-like images through picture quality that was technically impossible with previous LED/LCD display panels. Relying largely on self-lighted organic pixels, the OLED TV exhibits precise color, absolute contrast and blazing clarity. Boasting a contrast ratio of over 100,000,000:1, fifty times greater than that of LED/LCD display panels, the OLED TV displays vivid colors and the fine details, helping to preserve images with utmost clarity and sharpness, even when displaying scenes with dark lighting.
