LG Electronics announced its top-of-the-line Infinia PX950N THX certified 3D Plasma HDTV, LG's first Plasma 3D TV. It features 600Hz Max Sub-field Driving which ensures smooth viewing of even the fastest action sequences by showing 600 images per second, while LG's 3D Panel phases out light faster to produce images that are practically blur free. Also, TruBlack Filter enables viewers to watch strikingly realistic colors without distraction from light reflections. With this combination of features, the PX950N delivers a 3D viewing experience so stunning, it recently became the first TV in the world to receive 3D THX Certification, the ultimate recognition of cinematic 3D picture quality.
The PX950N offers a wide 3D viewing angle created by self-illuminating pixels, for a 3D viewing experience free of constraints. With the world's slimmest Plasma TV bezel created by its unparalleled INFINIA Design, LG claims the PX950N produces a full, engrossing picture and a truly immersive 3D experience. In addition, along with the connectivity options of DLNA and NetCast, the PX950N supports the Multi Picture Format (MPF) function, enabling users to connect their 3D cameras to the TV and view their 3D pictures directly on the big screen.
Plasma Picture Perfection
With LG's Plasma TVs, a TruBlack Filter blocks external reflections of light while maximizing the transmission of internal light to produce deeper blacks and superior contrast levels. Being THX certified, LG's Plasma TVs take viewers closer than ever to the cinematic viewing experience by setting the optimum levels of gamma, luminance and color temperature. Also, the Dual XD Engine transforms standard definition content into near-high definition quality with an unprecedented level of color accuracy.
Better by Design: INFINIA
With their signature INFINIA Design, LG's Plasma TVs have an ultra-narrow bezel that maximizes the screen display and draws viewers right into the heart of the action. A uni-color, single-pane glass cover adds a stylish face, creating an elegantly coordinated look for LG's enticingly slim and lightweight Plasma TVs. The combined effect is a range of TVs as beautiful and harmonious as a work of art.
Getting Connected: Netcast/DLNA/Wireless AV
Along with NetCast, which provides access to online services such as web albums and video streaming, LG's Plasma TVs are compatible with all DLNA devices, meaning they can connect wirelessly to home computers and portable media players. With this supreme connectivity, users can easily access movies, music, pictures and more on their computers, and enjoy it all on their TVs. In addition, a Wireless AV Link lets users delve seamlessly into their multimedia libraries, while ensuring that home decor is left entirely untarnished by wires.
While ramping up the quality of their picture and design, LG has succeeded in making its new Plasma TV range exceptionally eco-friendly, too. The TVs' Intelligent Sensor automatically adjusts screen brightness in tune with changing light conditions in the room, ensuring the screen is never any brighter than it needs to be. In addition, in the standby mode, the Plasma TV sets consume no electricity at all. With such exceptional energy efficiency, the PK950 was recognized with an Eco Flower, one of the most trusted environmental certifications in Europe.
