Advanced Technology

TruMotion 240Hz virtually eliminates motion blur when you are watching your favorite sport or action movie. This television will keep up with any fast paced entertainment while providing exceptional motion detail. This technology processes fast-moving images at lightening speed for a more lifelike picture.

Full 1080p high-definition resolution lets you see sharper details like never before with twice the amount of pixels as standard TVs. Television shows, movies and video will come to life in full HD. Not only do you have double the amount of pixels, there is a 150,000:1 contrast ratio. This is defined as the ratio between the brightest whites and darkest blacks being displayed.

Perfect Picture and Sound

Invisible speaker system utilizes a unique, hidden speaker system to deliver a clean look and a wider sound field. LG has widened the acoustic "sweet spot" so that every seat in the house becomes the best seat in the house. With an invisible speaker system, you will worry less about if the TV is loud enough and more about your friends and family. This speaker system was designed with simplicity in mind.

LG uses 24p Real Cinema to provide a true cinematic experience. This technology displays all 24 frames per second without altering image quality as it would on a standard television. On a 1080p TV panel, at 240Hz, you will see every frame as it was meant to be seen in the movie theater.

Intelligent Sensor automatically optimizes the picture on the screen to the lighting conditions on your room. This allows for a personalized and more enjoyable viewing experience without having to worry about glare from an open window or your room is too bright. Not only does it provide better color conditions, it can also save energy and money.

Hear every word with Clear Voice II. This system controls the dialogue by amplifying human voices when background noise increases. It dramatically enhances the frequency range of the human voice so it stays audible. It will also decreases the range by six positions so that special effects or soundtracks are more prominent.

Television Type

The type of technology used to produce the screen images. LCD, DLP, Plasma, LCoS, and CRT are the most common. 2 newer technologies include LED and OLED which use light-emitting diodes (LEDs) as a backlight, as opposed to conventional LCD TVs, which use cold-cathode fluorescent lamps (CCFL) for a backlight.

LED technology integrates LCD display technology with LED backlighting. On LED television, both LCD and LED will be selected here.

3D Ready
This means that the television is compatible with 3D images. Some televisions will require special glasses to view the 3D images, while other TVs can display the image without the necessity of glasses.
Screen Size
The screen size dimension is measured diagonally in inches.
Aspect Ratio
The standard ratio of 4:3 (width:height) is one that most are familiar with; however, today we're seeing more models with widescreen 16:9 aspect ratios, which closely matches the most common movie theater screen ratio and HDTV broadcasts too.

Selectable aspect ratio means that the user has the option to choose which aspect ratio they would like. This feature is usually found on televisions.

Resolution (pixels)
A display's pixel resolution defines its ability to resolve fine details. Digital TVs and projectors measure screen resolution in pixels. The higher the resolution, the more detailed the picture will be.
1920 x 1080 
The level of brightness; measured in candela per square meter (cd/m2), a calculation that measures light intensity emitting from the screen. The higher the value, the brighter. Some manufacturers will measure brightness in NIT. These measurements are equal. 1 cd/m2 = 1 NIT.
500 cd/m2 (NIT)
Dynamic Contrast Ratio
This is the maximum contrast ratio that the display is able to produce. Typically, the dynamic contrast ratio is about 5x the normal, or static, contrast ratio.
Refresh Rate
Refresh rate is the number of times in a second that the display will draw the picture on the screen.
240 Hz
Response Time
In relation to LCD monitors, the response time is the amount to time it takes for a pixel to go from black to white, and then return to black again. The time is measured in ms, or milliseconds. The lower the response time, the smoother the display can playback video. A high response time results in less blur and a crisper image.
2 ms
Viewing Angle
This represents the angle at which the monitor can best be viewed at.
178 °


WiFi Capable
This feature allows devices to download new software updates, stream video content through various services, or connect with BD-Live features wirelessly when connected with a compatible wireless link.

Most cameras and displays will be compatible with a NTSC video broadcast system. Others will be compatible with a PAL system. Many units will be compatible with both.
ATSC Compatible
ATSC is the new high definition format that will become the standard in 2009. It will be replacing the former NTSC television system.
QAM Tuner
A QAM tuner allows select digital televisions to receive a digital signal without the use of a digital set-up box.
HDTV Compatibility
This means that the television, projector, or monitor is capable of receiving and playing back a high-definition signal.
Display Format
High-definition televisions will display the image at 1080i, 1080p, or 720p. To be considered full HD, a television must display at 1080p.

Standard televisions will display the images at 480i or 480p. This means that there are 480 horizontal lines that create the picture.

CableCARD Compatible
CableCARD is a wireless card that allows the viewing of digital cable television channels on digital video recorders, personal computers and televisions. They do not require the use of equipment provided by a cable television company.


Number of Subs/Speakers
This value represents the number of speakers or subwoofers that the enclosure accommodates.
