LG's PG6000 takes it to the edge

New plasma line-up breaks boundaries with frameless design

Berkshire, 13 February 2008
Slim design, advanced calibration options, wireless connectivity and invisible speakers underscore LG Electronics 2008 plasma HDTV line-up. The 50-inch model of the flagship PG6000 series has been made a CES 2008 Best of Innovations video display honouree, and was singled out for its intuitive styling, advanced display technologies and consumer benefits.
All four series, including eight new models, with HD Ready display capability, were demonstrated publicly for the first time at the 2008 International Consumer Electronics Show.

Home theatre enthusiasts are continuing to drive growth in plasma HDTVs, specifically in larger screen sizes, and we are committed to serving this market by introducing seven new 42- and 50-inch models, says Anthony Yang, general product manager for Digital Display at LG Electronics. Our 2008 line delivers what plasma HDTV consumers are looking for a slim and stylish design with premium picture and sound quality.
LGs premium plasma lines, the PG7000 and PG6000 series, incorporate a slim, elegant frameless design. The single layer design reflects the appearance of a pane of glass creating a sleek, sophisticated look to complement any home decor. It also has a non-reflective internal cell structure to help minimize excessive glare typically caused by harsh ambient light.    

The entire stylish line includes LGs new invisible speaker system, adding to its polished look. This unique system incorporates speaker actuators around the perimeter of the bezel, eliminating traditional speaker drivers and their associated grills. This not only allows for a sleek finished look, but also offers a wider sweet spot by creating a virtual wall of sound.

Whats more, LGs new Clear Voice technology automatically enhances the sound frequency range of the dialogue even when background noise swells.

LG Electronics is a founding member of the Plasma Display Coalition.
