Manufacturer's Description

Blurred motion has finally met its match

LG TruMotion 200Hz uses a unique scanning backlight technology to achieve a more superior natural picture. The benefits of this feature is that it virtually eliminates motion blur and picture flicker, making the TV perfect for watching sport and fast action movies.

Customized modes for the content of your choice

LG TVs have three special modes (Cinema, Sport and Game modes) for enhanced picture and audio quality. These are easily accessible using the AV MODE hot key on the remote control.

The picture quality adjust system developed by the foremost experts in picture quality.

You’re the expert when it comes to adjusting the picture quality of your LG TV. The picture quality control guide program installed in LG LCD TV allows you to easily control the picture quality in following the adjust guide developed by visual specialists.

The power to control only the volume of voices

Sometimes when watching films it is difficult to hear voices over the background sound of their environment. The clear voice feature adjusts the sound balance to emphasise voices and reduce background noise.

Great sound is meant to be heard, not seen!

The front bezel works as a speaker, replacing the normal speaker grill. With the Invisible Speaker System, the speakers are embedded in strategic spots underneath and around the front bezel. They enhance the audio by increasing the ‘sweet spot’ to give a wider and richer sound field.

The Hub Of Your Entertainment World

DivX HD compatibility enables downloaded online videos and films to be played back in glorious high definition by connecting to the TV USB interface.

A Big Screen TV that Delivers Big Savings

The Backlight control function controls the brightness of the TV, while the Screen Off function lets you switch off the screen while keeping the sound alive. Stand by Mode 0 function sets your TV to a power saving mode where zero electricity is used. Added to these 3 basic power saving functions is the Intelligent Sensor function that controls automatically the brightness and the colour of the picture in accordance with the brightness and the colour of the viewing area. These are just some of the reasons why the majority of LG TVs have been certified by the Energy Saving Trust to save you money off your electricity bills.
