LG Electronics to Introduce 3D TV at Consumer Electronics Show
The LW6500 has “3D Light Boost,” which the company describes as “a thin film covering the screen that ensures 3D images are shown at maximum brightness.”
LG also provides 3D glasses that the company says are comfortable to wear.
“With the introduction of our innovative Cinema 3D TV, LG is setting another standard for 3D entertainment,” Havis Kwon, president and CEO of LG Home Entertainment Company, said in a recent company statement. “For consumers who want to enjoy cinema-quality 3D at home with their family and friends, LG is now making that possible.”
The company explains that because of the technology used in the new 3D TV, users do not need to wear “shutter glasses.”
The 3D glasses with the TV weigh 16 grams. There are no electrical parts nor are there any electromagnetic waves. They do not need recharging. The TV also allows for a wide viewing angle.
In addition, the LW6500 was certified “flicker free” by Intertek (News - Alert) and TÜV. The company says that the LW6500 is the first 3D TV to ever be given this certification. That means “images displayed on the LW6500 are entirely free of flicker,” according to the company, and less likely to cause any related eye strain.
The LW6500 will be available in select markets after its presentation at the CES.
This year’s CES will have over 300 conference sessions. The Consumer Electronics Association (News - Alert) (CEA) produces the CES. CEA is the leading industry trade association for the $165 billion consumer electronics sector in the United States, according to the CES website.
