Screen Size and Features Combine to Create the Ultimate Home Theater Package

INDIANAPOLIS, Sept. 8, 2004 - When the goal is a big, brilliant picture, design and installation professionals can look to LG Electronics for flat-panel displays that deliver on the promise. Headlining in the LG booth at CEDIA Expo 2004 (Booth #310) this week is a dramatic new 71-inch widescreen plasma high-definition (HD) monitor. Announced earlier this year, this unit will be available in limited quantities in the United States in the fourth quarter.

Picture performance. The first plasma display panel (PDP) measured in feet, not inches, Model MW-71PY10 boasts'20 x 1080p resolution. Driven by LG's exclusive XD Engine™, this 71-inch PDP displays crisp, brilliant HDTV images.

XD Engine technology takes low-resolution analog signals to near high-definition levels by minimizing distortion and noise while enhancing details and colors. The end result is a more film-like picture with truer colors and more realistic images. LG's XD Engine technology also is available in the company's new 42- and 50-inch PY10 plasma series models, and all of its LCD (liquid crystal display) and Digital Light Processing (DLP™)) televisions.

Warranty. A two-year limited warranty on parts and labor is standard with Model MW-71PY10. One of the industry's most aggressive programs for PDPs, the warranty extends two years from the date of purchase and covers defects in material or workmanship under normal use.

Versatility. A variety of inputs include DVI+HDCP, HDMI, RS-232C and PC. Flexible PIP, split-zoom and twin-picture features allows sub-windows to be moved, resized, swapped, and split into multiple windows (up to nine).

Model MW-71PY10 complements LG's extensive line of PDPs, which include models in screen sizes ranging from 42 to 71 inches.
