LG Electronics (LG), a leader in consumer electronics and mobile communications, launched the new FLATRON, LG's LCD monitor equipped with DFC contrast-ratio enhancing technology, today. The new Flatron has the highest contrast ratio, 1600:1 (in some models, 1400:1) available in the world today.

With its world leading contrast ratio of 1600:1, LG's DFC technology offers users a clearer, crisper and brighter image. DFC operates in 'MOVIE MODE', which is optimized for maximum bright movie images and also suitable for moving images with various brightness levels.

Today, the monitor has a broader use and application. Its primary use is no longer restricted to work and it is more widely used for entertainment purposes. In the new era of multi-use, LG monitors equipped with DFC provide viewers with a seamless viewing experience and greater control, allowing them to watch movies, animation, TV programs and even fast moving sports games on LCD monitors.

LG's DFC activates the 'Smart Function', which automatically sets up the optimum contrast ratio for each image. It analyzes the input image and then adjusts the contrast ratio for perfect picture quality. The special feature of DFC is most useful when displaying dark images.

Mr. Sang Han Yoon, Executive Vice President and CEO of LG Electronics Digital Display Company, said today's launch of DFC proves that LG provides differentiated products focusing on user benefits.

"LG's lifestyle approach and consumer-oriented strategy in its overall digital display business are highlighted in the DFC technology. LG will continue the trend with the upgraded model unveiled today and position itself as the global leader in digital display," Mr. Yoon said.

"LG's goal is to become the number one in the global display market by achieving USD 10 billion in sales by 2010. To achieve this goal, LG will focus on securing our leadership in technology and new standards."

LG's innovative enhancing image technology, DFC, will be equipped in various FLATRON LCD monitor series: LX70, LX52, LX19, LX60, LX82.
