LG Electronics' 2009 HDTV lines feature smart technologies and a beautiful viewing experience

LCD, Plasma HDTVs combine stylish design, crisp image quality and enhanced energy savings

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8, 2009
- LG Electronics today unveiled 11 stylish new HDTV product lines - eight series of LCD models (including a super slim, wireless LED Backlight HDTV) and three plasma series - with screens ranging from 19- to 60-inch class sizes. Each of these HDTVs blends a refined design with smart technologies to elevate and personalise the home theatre experience. The entire line is being introduced this week at the 2009 International CES Booth #8214, Central Hall, Las Vegas Convention Centre.

Technological innovation and energy savings
Many of LG's 2009 HDTV series incorporate advanced technologies - such as LED Backlighting, TruMotion 200Hz and wireless capabilities. Four core technologies - AV Mode II (Cinema, Sport, Game), Invisible Speakers, Clear Voice II and Picture Wizard - further enhance the entertainment experience.

With LG's "Smart Energy Saving" package, which consists of features such as backlight control options and video mute and some series adding Intelligent Sensor, LG is paving the way toward energy saving while also allowing consumers to customise their viewing experience.
