LG Electronics (LG) and SEALCO, LG’s exclusive distributor for Consumer Electronics products in Lebanon celebrated the launch CINEMA 3D TV that offers the first ‘flicker free’ 3D picture in the industry, along with more comfortable glasses, a brighter picture and a wider viewing angle. The event was organized at the Le Royal Hotel in Dbayeh and was attended by officials from LG and SEALCO, dealers and members of the press.
More than 350 guests packed the Pearl Ballroom for an entertaining and interactive night where they were introduced to the new Cinema 3D TV and were given a chance to trial the exciting new features first-hand in an experience zone. Special Guest, former Miss Lebanon, Rahaf Abdallah welcomed the crowd and superstar Tony Hanna entertained the crowd all night.
Kevin Cha, Managing Director, gave a brief introduction of the product and detailed LG’s plans to become the leaders in 3D technology. “Earlier this month, we launched the world’s first 3D mobile, the Optimus 3D and with today’s launch of the Cinema 3D TV, it’s becoming more and more evident that we at LG are setting the standard in the 3D market and are further cementing our position as a global technology innovator. The Cinema 3D TV is an addition to LG’s growing 3D Family of products and will be a real game changer in 3D TV,” he said.
The LW6500’s outstanding 3D viewing experience begins with a picture that is practically blur and flicker free. Via a polarized film attached to the screen, the set separates the picture into images aimed at either the left or the right eye. Those images are then matched up with CINEMA 3D glasses specially designed to receive each image, creating an outstandingly smooth 3D picture.
Because LG CINEMA 3D glasses don’t need to be synced or shuttered, the 3D images are also entirely free of flicker. This advance has earned the TV ‘Flicker Free’ certification from Intertek and TÜV, two world-renowned certification agencies based in Europe, making it the world’s first 3D TV to receive the designation. With such a smooth picture, the LW6500 practically eliminates the feelings of dizziness or eye fatigue that could occur with previous 3D TVs, meaning viewers can enjoy 3D content for longer and in greater comfort.
The LW6500 also comes with comfortable and affordable 3D glasses. Tipping the scales at just 16 grams, the glasses have no electrical parts, so they are free of electromagnetic waves and never need to be recharged. The glasses’ reasonable price also means viewers can buy as many pairs as they need for friends and family.
The CINEMA 3D TV has also been certified FULL HD in 3D-Mode by VDE, one of the largest technical and scientific international associations in Europe.
Further ramping up the picture quality is LG’s 3D Light Boost, a thin film covering the LW6500’s screen that ensures 3D images are shown at full brightness. By counteracting any dimness that can sometimes occur with 3D content, 3D Light Boost creates brighter, clearer images for a superior 3D viewing experience.
Thanks to its Wide Viewing Angle, the LW6500 is ideal for watching 3D with big groups of friends or family, while sitting or lying down in practically any spot in front of the TV.
Besides superb picture quality in 2D and 3D, the LW6500 boasts all the advantages of LG’s Smart TV technology, including access to LG Apps and a range of premium content via top global providers as well as the best in locally sourced shows. The LW6500 can also convert 2D content into high quality 3D, so viewers will never be short of things to watch in 3D. This product is now available in the Lebanese market.
