LG Dives into 3D HDTV Technology

| November 17, 2010

LG Electronics, provider of flat-panel HDTV technologies to the lodging and hospitality industry, introduced its first Full HD 3D LCD (model LD950C) and commercial LED HDTVs this week at the 2010 International Hotel/Motel and Restaurant Show.

Enhancing the guest experience with cinema 3D
With the LG LD950C, hoteliers can take advantage of the benefits that guest-centric 3D provides, including offering new and exciting experiences to guests. Displaying content in 1080p Full HD with a dynamic contrast ratio of 50,000:1, guests will enjoy HD content and a viewing angle of 178 degrees to provide an exceptional viewing experience from any seat in the room.

Hotel guests will enjoy that LG's LD950C uses polarized glasses, popularized by many 3D movie theaters which utilize the "Real-D" circular polarization 3D technology. LG's polarized glasses are lightweight, comfortable and continue LG's legacy of providing amazing stereoscopic 3D HDTV effects. Hoteliers will save on the cost of polarized 3D glasses compared to more expensive active glasses that also require cumbersome charging. The LG LD950C is available starting on Dec. 6 and includes four pairs of polarized 3D glasses.

LG's LD950C is available in a 47-inch class size with a glossy black finish.

Hotel room LED display technology
LG also introduced its first commercial LED HDTV (model LE530C) this week. The LE530C combines LG's stylish design with the capability to entertain in all new ways while delivering stunning picture quality. LG's LE530C is available in glossy black finish and a slim 1.2-inch profile.

LED backlighting takes Full HD to new heights with a 3,000,000:1 contrast ratio yet meets ENERGY STAR 4.1 guidelines for energy savings. Advanced public display settings on the LE530C include cloning capabilities for easy programming for integrators and LG's invisible speaker system that combines a stylish display with a wider sound field.

Exclusive energy-saving technologies
All of LG's new HDTVs on display this week feature EcoSmart technology with multiple manual and automatic options for energy conservation. EcoSmart includes multiple power saving settings and one or more of LG's energy saving features:
  • Intelligent Sensor: Offers integrators a way to program the LCDs to automatically respond to the ambient light in the room and then reduce brightness and energy output under most circumstances.
  • Dynamic Power Savings: Provide an option to have the television automatically adjust the brightness level settings based on the incoming video, helping facilities save on energy costs while still providing superior picture quality to guests.
  • Static Power Savings: Allows the installer to set the preferred power consumption level.
