LG’S PLASMA TV NAMED PICK OF THE PICTURES BY TIPA

 

50”/60” PK990 recognised for its cutting-edge technology, innovation and stylish design

Berkshire, 5 May, 2010 -- LG Electronics (LG) today announced that its PK990 Plasma TV has been recognised as the “Best Photo TV Display” in the 2010 TIPA (Technical Image Press Association) Awards.

TIPA, a global organisation of photo and imaging magazines, has been honouring excellence in imaging since 1991. Recognised as the premiere prize in the photo and imaging industry, TIPA Award recipients are selected by the association’s editors from around the world. In making their decision, the editors take into consideration factors such as innovation, design and value.  

In a statement accompanying the award, TIPA editors said, “The 50- and 60-inch PK990 offers broadband connectivity and uses the latest technology for high-end picture quality – both still and moving. Both the 50- and 60-inch screens deliver not only HD video content in excellent quality, but also give photo enthusiasts a high quality opportunity to display their images saved on an USB pendrive.”

TIPA judges were particularly impressed with LG's TruBlack Filter, which helps block glare and enhances images on the screen to improve picture quality.

“The 50- and 60-inch PK990’s outstanding picture is the result of the convergence of several state-of-the-art imaging technologies,” said Steve Gater, Head of Marketing, Home Entertainment, LG UK. “The 50- and 60-inch PK990 is a gateway to a new dimension of Full HD entertainment that gives consumers the benefit of both smart technology and stylish design.”

With its complementary mix of cutting-edge technologies resulting in outstanding picture quality, the 50- and 60-inch PK990 is just another way in which LG Home Entertainment Company is enriching consumers’ lives.
