TV Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Zero Motion Blur With Splitting Second Response Time
LG 600Hz Sub-Field Driving Plasma technology provides zero motion blur and the ultimate razor sharp response time perfect for watching high speed viewing such as sports and movies.

Dual XD Engine
Dual XD Engine is upgraded from XD Engine, LG’s own core technology for picture quality. The new algorithm of Dual XD Engine expresses amazingly accurate colour by enhancing colour correction, contrast, visibility in dark area and sharpness.

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 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.
