LG Electronics (LG), a global leader and technology innovator in consumer electronics, home appliances and mobile communications, participated in the 2009 Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin (IFA) from September 4-9.
LG unveiled pioneering home entertainment products, under its theme of LIVE BORDERLESS™. This was interconnected with LG's BORDERLESS™ TVs, two of which were introduced at the show; the SL8000 and SL9000. These TVs appear to be one uninterrupted glass screen and represent years of research and development. Both products challenge accepted design conventions, changing the future of TV creation.
Innovative home products also had their debut at the 2009 IFA, with the theme “Upgrade Life for You and Your Family”. Highlights from LG included washing machines, refrigerators, vacuum cleaners, cooking and built-in appliances, dishwashers, the Linear Compressor, Inverter Direct Drive™, and its dust compression system. LG's 11kg washing machine was also premiered, which offers maximum efficiency and capacity.
LG's Business Solutions booth demonstrated its network monitors. These allow 1 host PC to deliver virtual workspaces to 11 users, reducing upgrade and maintenance costs by 60% and 70%.
A quiz for visitors was also held, four times a day, with questions relating to LG monitors. Winners were awarded a stylish and practical LG digital photo frame.
The combination of LED and advanced backlight technology has made possible an impressively slim TV at a mere 2.9cm, the perfect complement to the home décor in both space saved and mood enhanced.
The SL9000's screen blurs the line between fantasy and reality, eliminating the seam between the screen and the bezel and offering audiences a fully absorbing viewing experience. LG's SL9000 guarantees a clearer and more natural image with an extremely high dynamic contrast ratio at 3,000,000:1, while the Anti-glare Screen reduces distractions.
