CES 2012: LG unveils 55-inch 3D OLED TV

4:47 /

At CES 2012 in Las Vegas, LG's CTO Scott Ahn unveils a new 55-inch 3D OLED television, which the company says is the largest and thinnest TV to date. The company also discussed its 84-inch "ultra-resolution" TV with new voice recognition features.

One of the products that we showed last year that really excited the visitor was our small LED TV. Well, your enthusiasm has not gone unnoticed and this year we've got a much larger version for you. This is our 55-inch LED TV. It's 4 mm thin and weighing only 7.5 kilogram. It's the world's thinnest largest and lightest LED TV. The beauty of this TV isn't just its appearance either the picture qualit.... quality is super. And of course, this is really capable and 100% comparable with other LG 3D classes as we expected from LG Lafrance. Our 40... 84 inches size Cinema 3D TV uses an ultra definition panel with a resolution and screen area four times there of 42-inch full HD panel. We have also made a huge improvement to design with nano full LED technology by embedding the LED units directory into the custom developed film, we've been able to create inner panel for a video list turning display. Unlike some our competitors, we use a direct LED pen like unit to re-create really neat and deep black levels. Introducing our Cinema Screen design, we've gone to great lengths to reduce the thickness of our TV's without sacrificing picture quality. LG Cinema Screen TV has just a 1.0 mm bezel and 28 mm thickness. Let's talk about input devices. Last year, we introduced an innovative new way of interacting with TV's, the LG Magic Remote. This year, Magic Remote has a field for scrolling to improve navigation of larger list, button register for intuitive control of common features and most exciting of all, voice recognition as a natural solution for text input. Now, searching through the (??) amount of content available on our Smart TV's becomes easier than ever before with voice recognition. Taking things a step further, we are developing a more levels in natural interface and translate physical gesture into user input. This year, in addition to voice recognition, we are introducing another... another major natural interface feature, 3D Gesture Interface using a 3D camera. Not only can you use your hand to emulate the function of the Magic Remote, you can also enjoy the games that recognize entire body gestures. Last year, we introduced Smasher, which is our feature for showing video (??) all the the products. This year, we've updated it by adding a lot of new features and we called it Smasher Plus. We've added Wi-Fi screen showing to mirror the all the display on the mobile devices. Second display for mobile devices which allows the TV to be used as supplementary display, mobile high definition link for the best quality video connection from comparable mobile devices. And finally, Wi-Di through strategic alliance within LG and Intel, LG Cinema 3D Smart TV will be the first in the TV industry to feature Intel Wi-Di technology.
