Also featured was the lineup of LG's 37- and 42-inch LCD TVs, and 42-, 50-inch PDP TVs with built-in DVRs, and other TVs. TVs with built-in DVRs embed 80 GB hard disks and store 40 hours of broadcast, and automatically record one hour of programs, giving users the convenience of replaying and watching recorded live programs.
42-inch PDP TV with built-in DVR (Model: 42PC1RR)
LG Electronics presented a full lineup of its 2-megapixel full HD (high picture quality) 37-, 42-, and 47-inch LCD TVs. In particular, the production of its 37-inch full HD LCD TV is profoundly meaningful, as smaller screens make it technically more difficult to implement a 2-megapixel full HD resolution. These full HD PDP TVs include a 60-inch plasma TV that complements the full HD 71-inch gold-accented PDP TVs currently available in the market.
47-inch full HD LCD TV with built-in DVR (Model: 47LB1DR)
LG Electronics presented its Super Multi-DVD recorder (RH0MHS), winner of the 2006 EISA Video Recorder Award, reddot design award-winning wireless home theater (LH-WH9695IA), and Blu-ray player (BD-100) targeting the next-generation DVD market. Also exhibited were DMB mobile devices that can play DMD content such as music (FM35), PC notebooks, and PDAs, showcased in their exclusive zone.
With its basic concept inspired by the interplay of light and humanity, the Fantasy Series is designed to offer an interaction between a monitor and a user. The Series consists of the △ L 1900J that resembles luminous ceramics △ L1900R and its intriguing curves, and △ L1900E inspired by the beauty of a lunar eclipse. With red LED subtly installed in the right places, this product simulates a unique ambience, and can serve as an interior decor even when not in operation, which makes it more a piece of art than a home appliance.
