LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2011 –- LG Electronics (LG) will today unveil a full range of home entertainment products featuring “smart technologies” at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.


One of LG’s biggest smart product introductions at this year’s CES is LG Smart TV, which offers the best in TV technology and Internet connectivity while being extremely easy to use. Demonstrating the “Point, Click, Control, Simply Smarter” capabilities of LG’s Smart TVs, LG’s Home Dashboard and Magic Motion Remote Control make using the Smart TV and accessing its wealth of content intuitive and simple.



With the addition of Media Link to LG’s existing USB and DLNA functions, Smart Share gives LG Smart TV users the freedom to access content from their PC by transferring it directly onto their TV. In addition to enabling viewers to easily watch all their stored content on the big screen, Media Link also provides simultaneous information on what they are watching, including synopses, actor profiles and viewer ratings.

LG’s Smart TV functions are available in a wide range of models including LG Smart TVs with NANO FULL LED technology and LG Smart Plasma 3D TVs.




LG also introduced the LW6500, a new LG CINEMA 3D TV that takes 3D images to new heights of brightness and clarity by using 3D technology and polarized 3D eyewear similar to movie theatres*. With LG’s proprietary Film-type Patterned Retarder (FPR) panel, the TV delivers a first class, virtually blur-free and flicker-free 3D picture and a wide viewing angle. The LW6500 also comes with comfortable and affordable 3D glasses that have no electrical parts, meaning they never need to be recharged.


Beyond TVs, LG is also highlighting 3D Blu-ray home theater systems, 3D Blu-ray Disc™ players, 3D monitors, 3D laptops, and 3D projectors that provide the perfect 3D entertainment experience for every occasion and every setting.




Nearby, LG is also displaying a 180-inch class Multi Vision Plasma Display, a combination of nine screens stacked three by three that can be expanded to create ever-large displays.

By dispensing with back-screen lighting, OLED TVs’ pixels generate their own light to produce an entirely new level of color, clarity and depth of blacks.






LG is also debuting the Pen Touch Plasma TV, PV550, which lets users quickly and easily write, draw, edit and play directly on the TV screen. The PV550 transforms the TV into a truly interactive experience, offering viewers the chance to be actively involved in their home entertainment experience.
