LG provides entertainment to the whole family with its new range of combined TV and PC monitors

 

Berkshire, UK, 15 September, 2009 – LG today launches its latest range of combined TV and PC monitors, the M62D series. The whole family can enjoy the flexible functionality of these new monitors, whether they’re watching digital TV, Blu-ray movies or playing the latest games. Displaying HD content of a standard usually seen on high-end TVs, these new LG monitors are ideal for any kind of home entertainment.

The M62D series has an in-built digital TV tuner, eliminating the need to purchase an additional box. As a result, users have access to up to 50 digital TV channels and 24 radio stations on Freeview. Pictures are also kept vivid and crisp with its 50,000:1 Digital Contrast Ratio (DFC). Furthermore, it includes a range of features to provide the best possible picture, including Auto Bright which automatically adjusts the brightness level on screen based on the light in the room and the content being viewed. Not only does this prevent eyestrain but it also reduces the power consumption of the monitor, making it a more energy efficient option than a standard monitor.

The M62D series has impressive connectivity so it can be used for leisure and work purposes, whether it is for viewing the latest holiday snaps via a digital camera, watching a film with friends or burning data to an external drive. It is compatible, via HDMI, D-sub, Scart and DVI-D, with almost any secondary device from a game console and DVD player to a PC.

Taking inspiration from LG’s latest high-end TVs, the M62D series boasts a modern and glossy look. Available in either piano black or snow white and a range of sizes (between 19” and 27”), the M62D seamlessly blends with any décor. Wall mounting fixtures make it easy for the user to place the monitor in a position that suits them.

“Consumers are increasingly demanding displays that enable them to not only view TV programmes, radio stations and the internet, but also play games and watch DVDs. At LG we are passionate about creating multifunctional devices that fit in perfectly with the user’s entertainment set-up,” explains Warren Lewis, General Manager for Business Solutions, LG Electronics.”

Key specifications of the M62D series:

- Available in sizes: 19”, 20”, 22”, 23”, 27”

- Digital fine contrast ratio: 50,000:1
