LG LW6500- CINEMA 3DTM TV receives worlds first Flicker Free certification from Intertek and TÜV

At the 2011 CES in Las Vegas, LG will unveil the LW6500, a CINEMA 3DTM TV designed to take 3D TV to new heights of brightness and clarity. The LG LW6500’s outstanding 3D picture begins with LG’s proprietary Film-type Patterned Retarder (FPR) panel, which optimizes the separation of images for the left and right eyes. The images are then filtered through specially designed glasses to give viewers truly crisp, blur-free images that leap off the screen. Because LG’s CINEMA 3DTM technology does not require shutter glasses, images displayed on the LW6500 are entirely free of flicker. This innovation resulted in the LW6500 receiving a “Flicker Free” certification from Intertek and TÜV, two of the most respected inspection and certification bodies in the world. The LW6500 is the first 3D TV in the world to receive this designation. The LG LW6500 also improves picture quality with 3D Light Boost, a thin film covering the screen that ensures 3D images are shown at maximum brightness.

Tipping the scales at just 16 grams, the included 3D glasses have no electrical parts and are free of electromagnetic waves and never need to be recharged. The glasses do not need to be synchronized so viewers can watch the LW6500’s screen from any angle. And because the glasses are far less expensive than shutter glasses, viewers can buy as many pairs as they need for family and friends. The LW6500 will be rolled-out in select markets soon after its introduction at CES.
