ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., Dec. 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — LG Electronics (LG) announced the launch of its 100-Inch class (100 inch diagonal) Laser TV featuring both Smart TV and Digital TV capabilities.
An impressive home cinema system, the 100-inch class LG “HECTO” Laser TV comprises a special screen and an external Ultra Short Throw (UST) projection unit. The unique system, which will be demonstrated for the first time next month at the 2013 International CES®, offers Full HD 1080p resolution and incredible contrast as a result of LG’s advanced laser-based illumination system.
“LG’s 100-inch class Laser TV takes projection technology and makes it perfectly suitable for both the boardroom and the living room,” said Havis Kwon , President and CEO of the LG Electronics Home Entertainment Company. “In the coming year, LG will continue to introduce innovative TV products to provide an outstanding productivity and entertainment experience for our customers.”
Brilliant Home Theater Experience
Between its picture quality and large screen, LG’s 100-inch class Laser TV offers an uncanny theater-like experience at home, but without the difficult installation required by previous projector-based systems. A standard projector system requires a considerable distance from the screen to create a large image and typically needs to be installed on the ceiling. However, LG’s Laser TV makes installation and viewing easier by allowing users to place the lens a mere 22 inches (approximately 56 centimeters) from the screen, while having the flexibility to position it near the floor or fasten it to the ceiling. LG’s Laser TV offers 1080p Full HD resolution and 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, rendering vivid and crisp images that pop out in dark as well as lighter environments.
LG’s Laser TV has a digital tuner and two 10W built-in speakers embedded in the projection unit to support virtual surround sound for a more authentic cinema experience at home. A complete complement of inputs, including 3 HDMIs, allow for connection of other source devices. An optical audio output, as well as RS-232 interface, will allow for integration into virtually any home theater environment. The device itself features LG’s understated yet stylish Dynamic Arc Design, creating subtly curved surfaces that reach a mere 5.7 inches in height. The 100-inch class screen adopts LG’s CINEMA SCREEN Design aesthetic which limits the bezel and makes it suitable for any interior decor.
Smart TV Capabilities
The Laser TV supports LG’s Smart TV platform, which includes a host of impressive features, from built-in Wi-Fi, premium content providers, like Netflix or YouTube, Smart World app store, to the easy-to-use Magic Remote*. The system also allows consumers to manage personal content, such as pictures, home videos and music libraries via USB or LG Cloud.
LG’s Smart TV platform provides a customizable dashboard and smart connectivity features that streamline access to content from compatible smartphones, laptops, storage devices and the Internet. With built-in WiDi and Wi-Fi direct (Miracast), content from any compatible external device can be wirelessly shared with the TV. Navigation of services and external devices via the dashboard is made easy with the Magic Remote which utilizes four modes of control – voice, gesture, point and wheel.
