LG has just revealed their astounding flagship HDTV, which isn't much thicker than a digital picture frame and will do 3D. 3D? Anyone thinking Avatar?
LG's Infinia is a new generation of LED LCD HDTVs. The LE9500 is the top of the line and comes equipped with 3D. The TV itself is only .92 inches deep and it's got a 8.5mm bezel. The Infinia product line has got six models in total. All of them are 1080p, except the models which are smaller than 32". They also come with NetCast Entertainment Access, which is LG's connectivity suite.
This year, this suite includes Skype functionality and DivX TV. It still has access to Netflix, Yahoo Widgets, VUDU, YouTube, and Napster. The refresh rate of the LE9500 is 480Hz. This was just announced today at CES, so there is no word yet on pricing. However, these HDTVs should be heading for retailers this spring or summer.
From the press release, the big thing about these HDTV sets is that they have local dimming. This means that these HDTVs provide deeper black levels and have a uniform picture quality, which cannot be typically achieved on an ultra-thin set.
